Fog/Rain ~ Crazy Bruiser ~ Gtanos/Blondies/Bohemian ~ Grandpa Graham's Blackberry BBQ Sauce ~ Kahlua Cake


Good 40º foggy morning.
 
 
Yesterday the sun did come out for a bit, but by 9:30am it was gone behind dark clouds. By 10am we were getting rain. It drizzled on and off all day. We ended up with 1/4".
 
In the morning a usual is Bruiser and Dude go out for their morning 'thing'. Then they come back in while I finish my blog. Bruiser is the wild child and loves running madly through the house and jumping up on the hutch and seeing what he can knock off! I keep a spray bottle close and spray him, and he gets down. But he will do it again and again. So, finally tired of his game I took everything off the hutch.. photos and a few nicknacks (or knicknacks, however you spell it) So, what does he do? He gets up there and just looks around! (All the pictures are sitting on the dining room table)


 
Lunch with the 'girls', Nancy, Jennifer, and Micol, at Gtanos, or so we thought...

I LOVE their food, South American, and their Peruvian Margaritas are the BEST. They make fresh guacamolé at your table. BUT............. their FB page said they are open at 11. NOT. They don't open til 3pm! DANG. Micol got there and so we went next door to Blondies. Nancy and Jennifer showed up. We sat there being ignored...

Got irritated and left. We went across the street to The Bohemian. Apparently the girls liked what they had, but I didn't like my Chicken Thai Lettuce Wraps. Too little, too late!
Anyway, the wine was good! And we jibber jabbered away...
           Jennifer, me, Nancy, Micol....      xoxox
 

I had a back therapy appointment in RR so left for that. Ahhhhh....... Stacy and her magic hands!!! Then to ACE to buy some of Grandpa Graham's Blackberry BBQ Sauce. It's made in Grants Pass. I got the Hickory Smoke, but they have other flavors.... regular & chipotle. It tastes GREAT. Berry BBQ sauce was featured on Dr. Oz recently.

I will find out where else this is sold and let you know.
