Errands ~ Jelly Bean Wine ~ Marie & Bob Vincent ~ Funny T-Shirts ~ Watermelon Day

   


 
Good 45º clear sunny morning.
We topped out at 87º yesterday. Nice.

Yesterday I ran a few errands. I want to order Jelly Bean wine, made in California, but none of the wine stores are open before noon, or 4pm around here! I had contacted one store, Napa (new in town) and they were going to call me back about the ordering, but never have!


So, next was a short visit at Kitchen Company with Jennifer and the ladies. Next Safeway for groceries and a nice chat with checker Lisa, who was a NY Corrections Officer prior to moving to Oregon. I had on my "Lawn Enforcement Officer" shirt and she loved it!
 Mine is yellow.
Then to the vets to get dog and cat meds for fleas and ticks and heartworm, Ace for a new swivel aerator for the kitchen faucet,  pharmacy for prescriptions, and to Rays for boneless skinless chicken thighs on sale~!
This from my pal Dave Clark (LASD ret):
Works for me!


A special day today, former Temple City neighbors Bob and Marie Vincent are celebrating their 53rd wedding anniversary. CONGRATULATIONS kids!!!

I am so glad he and that odd Bridgett Moynahan are not together anymore.  She's on Blue Bloods, one of my fav shows, but I can't stand her character. Actors do not fall too far from the tree of who they really are when acting! She and Len Cariou are the two I can't stand!
 



Ok, off the soapbox!
These are funny... tee shirts available...



Later dinner was reruns. Then chair, wine, and TV.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.

August 3, 2016 is
National Watermelon Day
Today is National Watermelon Day! Watermelon is a delicious summer fruit that has become a staple at family picnics and cookouts. Did you know that watermelons are 92% water? No wonder they’re so refreshing!
There are around 300 different kinds of watermelon in the U.S. and Mexico. You can find red, pink, white, and yellow varieties in various sizes and shapes. Watermelons are usually quite large, and many county fairs award prizes for the biggest ones. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the heaviest watermelon weighed 262 pounds. To learn more interesting watermelon facts, check out www.watermelon.org.
To celebrate National Watermelon Day, have some watermelon for dessert tonight! Slice it up and eat it plain, cook it on the grill, mix it into a salsa, or blend it into a cocktail. Enjoy!
