Really was looking forward to another super nice, clear, warmer day yesterday... and then someone started burning, whether private or BLM controlled burn I don't know... but it got icky smokey for awhile!
Comfortable temps hit 82º.....

Later a fav kind of meal... artichoke and corn on the cob. Dip choke leaves in mayonnaise and slather the mayo on the corn too!
I always cook my artichokes in boiling water with olive oil drizzled on each and sprinkled liberally with Lawry's Garlic Salt.
Today Dave will be here to brush-hog my pastures before the grass is too tall and too dry.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Ciao.

THANK YOU ALL WHO HAVE SERVED! I SALUTE YOU!!! XO
It was with the idea for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country that President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish this single holiday. The one-day celebration then stemmed from the unification of the Armed Forces under the Department of Defense. It was on August 31, 1949, that Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of an Armed Forces Day to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps, U.S. Coast Guard and Air Force Days.
