Good 40º clear sunny morning. Cooler. Even yesterday was cooler, topping at 87º.
Yesterday when it was still sorta cool, 74º, Dude and I did a run to take the trash to the road for Monday pickup. He's stopping to sniff something. He has to sniff EVERYTHING and pee on EVERY tree or tall bush!!! LOL
I received this about 9-11 from Brooklyn pal... her daughter is a NYPD officer .... so sad:
My ex-son-in-law--Andrew, who was married to Julie--is a fireman, but was home sick on Staten Island when the planes hit. He, of course, went directly to ground zero and helped in any way he could. He was stationed there for six months. Julie was also stationed on the perimeter for security detail. Andrew's fire house lost 33 men and it was a small house. So sad. He was very lucky.
Too many first responders lost. RIP.
Speaking about dogs..... here is a super short video of a dog rescue just in the nick of time....

Exciting stuff yesterday... laundry. Whoop...
Lunch was these Cheese Twists (Open Nature is a product of Safeway... and sadly if you don't have a Safeway in your area you are missing out!)
I put some plain low fat yogurt in a dish, topped it with artichoke bottoms halved, garlic sea salt and Parmesan cheese. Had the cheese sticks and some of the Dalmatia olive spread for dipping. (I get it at Safeway, but Amazon has it too.) OMGOOOOOD!!!
By now it was about 84º so Bruiser was napping in his box in the cool house, and Dude was on his couch watching out the door.
Dinner, chair, wine, and the Patriots vs Cardinals in the first Sunday Night Football game. My Pats won 23-21! For all the scores, go here:
The 9-11 tribute was nice....
but the National Anthem was sung by (ick) Kristin Chenoweth. These hoity toity singers think that by singing the Anthem in their own way is cool. I want it sung with the rhythm that it was written and how we sing it. Then all that highest note that can be reached and falsetto singing sucks! Ok off the soapbox.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.

Chocolate Milkshake Day
Chocolate Milkshake Day is an opportunity for chocoholoics to savor and enjoy. The weather may have cooled off. But, our appetite for chocolate, specifically chocolate milkshakes, hasn't cooled off one iota.
What a great day this will be! Simply combine a little milk with some chocolate ice cream, add some extra chocolate syrup, and mix it well in a blender. That's the fixins for mixin up a big, tall glass of chocolate milkshake.
On a diet? Not today. A lot of people celebrate Chocolate Milkshake Day with not one, but two or more chocolate milkshakes.
I have an antique Hamilton Beach No.33 milk shake maker.
It was in the cafeteria of the Terminal Annex Post Office in Los Angeles, where my Dad worked. They updated the cafeteria and he brought this home. still works great!
