Later I had some of that leftover spaghetti.
The dog, Nova, made another visit yesterday. She was also over here on Tuesday. She thinks I'm her new best friend. I told the lady when I met her at the fence, it's dangerous here with cougars and coyotes. The dog is small and coyotes will gang up on a single dog. She's got to fence in her yard! Sheeeesh!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT. Ciao

US Navy Day
Many nations around the world celebrate their navies, with a special day dedicated to them. Each country selects a date relevant to their navy, often the birth date of the navy.
In the United States, Navy Day is commonly celebrated on October 27th. This date was selected as it was the birth date of President Theodore Roosevelt, an avid supporter of the U.S. Navy. In the 1970's, research determined that the birthday of the U.S. Continental Navy was October 13, 1775. At the time, efforts were made to move Navy Day to this date. However,Navy Day in the United States, is still largely recognized as October 27th.
On Navy Day, give some well deserved attention to your proud U.S. Navy, and to the sailors who serve our country.......Salute!
