Good 55º clear sunny morning. We hit 93º yesterday. Heading towards triple digits this week.
Oh happy Monday. Schools are getting back in gear in So Cal. Kristen is back to work at Coolidge Elementary.
She has a new principal. Hope that works out. Her former principal Patty, took dancing lessons from my pal Judy (Nichols) Seielstad Houston. Judy passed away a few years ago. Judy was the daughter of June Nichols, who had a dance studio in Alhambra where I took lessons...
And Patty is the niece of Judy's husband Kenny Houston. Small world.
Breakfast yesterday was another egg baked in bread, cinnamon muffin with honey, and tomato. As I said, these eggs are so good!! I love them. Crispy crunchy bread and perfectly cooked egg, topped with a thin slice of butter and a little cheese.
If you didn't see or get the recipe, check my blog on July 19th:
My high school pal, Nancy's (Kujala) daughter Stephanie and her mate Derek Hunt run Sable Ranch in Santa Clarita. The Sand Fire just about destroyed the ranch. Lots of movies and commercials have been filmed there.
The fire completely destroyed the western town.
The Ranch website:
It is so sad to lose historical places, not to mention all the homes that fire has consumed! My heart aches for all those people.

My pal Trish, who was a delegate to the RNC in Cleveland, took this picture because she knows how much I like our Congressman Greg Walden!
Later in the afternoon I went over to Jennifer's on the river. Her deck view looking towards the Rogue:
She made a rotisserie chicken and salad. I took some fresh cut up pineapple. We sat on her deck and drank wine. Her dogs joined us on the deck...
These dogs are sooooooooooooo sweet and loving. Just a pleasure to be around them!
Jennifer had bought this wine:
This is the wine maker's dog, Aggie. It's a Viognier made in Jacksonville at Devitt Winery.
Anyway, Jennifer didn't like the wine and she asked me to try it. I liked it! She gave me these two bottles. Lucky me!!!! As it turned out I was wearing this shirt yesterday:
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.
