Art Along The Rogue ~ 10-8 ~ Sgt Steve Owen ~ Thursday Football Scores ~ Packer's Fans ~ Sunday Football Schedule ~ Black Widows ~ Pierogi Day

Good 48º sunny morning.

Yesterday warmed to 85º and today should be the same or warmer.

It was nice yesterday for the Rogue River High School Homecoming Parade. I escaped being in town just minutes before the parade started, as it went from down in town out here to the high school. 

Today and tomorrow are also going to be nice for the "Art Along The Rogue"street painting and music festival in Grants Pass.

Here are some photos from the 2014 event...
It runs from 10am - 6pm today and from 10am - 4pm tomorrow on H Steet.

10-8 is radio code talk for "in service" ... or as it was said by many, "10-8 out the gate" !

LASD Sgt Steve Owen was calculatedly murdered by the suspect Trenton Trevon Lovell, parole with long criminal record!

Our department and all of us are devastated by this.
Sorry, forgot to post Thursday night's football game yesterday...
HA HA HA HA!!!! So there, Kaepernick!!!
Here's what Packer fans think of you:

And... here's the games for tomorrow, Sunday:

Yesterday Mike came over and I had him set off some smoke bombs in the barn. When Brian had been over here recently he said there were a lot of black widow spiders in the barn.

The venom of this type of spider is 15 times as toxic as the venom of a prairie rattlesnake. Only the female is dangerous to humans. Males are harmless (LOL). The female, on occasion, will kill and eat the male after mating.
When I was in grammar school, Sierra Park, we were studying spiders and were supposed to catch some and bring them to school in a jar. I had forgotten to do that, so on the way to school, on the wall in front of the school, I found a couple spiders and put them in the jar.

This is how the school looks now, but back then the wall was just bare cement, not painted, so there were lots of holes for spiders.
As it turns out, my teacher panicked, as the spiders I caught were black widows!!!
