Clouds ~ Deer ~ Bird ~ Running Goose ~ Ricky Nelson ~ UPS~ Doug Gossage ~ Babette Faust ~ Indy NASCAR 400 ~ National Tequila Day

Good 60º clear sunny morning.
We topped yesterday at 95º.

Yesterday it was a surprise when by 10 am the clouds were moving in... it was 79º and about 40% humidity.

While I was taking pictures there was a little doe looking at me...

And momma bird was feeding her babies...

And then out back were two more, munching on grass and drinking water.....

They empty the tubs of water every other day or so.

This is funny.... a goose goes on the run with a fitness class:

Ok, since I was a young teen I loved Ricky Nelson. Had a photo of him on my pee chee folder..

Here is a concert he did in 1985 at Universal Ampthitheatre. I already posted this on my FB page....  Click on the link, start the video, and if you are a Ricky fan, just let it play in the background as you do other things!
I worked for UPS in 1980 and delivered a package to his house, in the Hollywood Hills just off Mulholland Drive....

As I pulled up in my big brown truck he drove out the driveway and waved to me. HEART ATTACK!!!

Former Wilsonite Doug Gossage is celebrating his birthday today... with his Bridgette.... HAPPY BIRTHDAY DOUG!

And my high school pal's (Sandy Todoran-Beck) baby sister Babette Faust is celebrating also. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABETTE!

Historically this date....

1935 – The dust bowl heat wave reaches its peak, sending temperatures to 109°F (43°C) in Chicago and 104°F (40°C) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

1966 – Michael Pelkey makes the first BASE jump from El Capitan along with Brian Schubert. Both came out with broken bones. BASE jumping has now been banned from El Cap.

2005 – Lance Armstrong wins his seventh consecutive Tour de France.

And births this date include...
1897 – Amelia Earhart, American aviator (d. 1937...maybe! It's being looked into more recently.)

1899 – Chief Dan George, Canadian actor (d. 1981)

1936 – Ruth Buzzi, American actress and comedian

1951 – Lynda Carter, American actress

1969 – Jennifer Lopez, American actress and singer

Later dinner was reruns. That pasta dish was a lot, so having it a couple more times. Might even add something else into it. We'll see.

I was watching the Indy NASCAR 400. One crash after another!! The race was extended to overtime and it's the latest it's ever finished, just about 9pm their time. The last time it ran this late was a number of years ago when it finished at 7pm and Dale Earnhardt was the winner.

There were 17 cars knocked out of the race from the crashes. Roger Penske team has won many (I think 17) Indy 500 races, but has yet to win a NASCAR Indy 400. The winner of yesterday's race was Kasey Kahne

and 2nd place was to Team Penske with Brad Keselowski

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.

July 24th
National Tequila Day
Here's to you Darling..... cheers!
(Oh yes!)

Well, it's Sunday mornin',
And the sun is shinin' in my
Eye that is open,
And my head is spinnin',
Was the life of the party,
I can't stop grinnin',
I had too much tequila last night.
José Cuervo you are a friend of mine.
I like to drink you
with a little salt and lime.
Did I kiss all the cowboys?
Did I shoot out the lights?
Did I dance on the bar?
Did I start any fights?
Now wait a minute,
Things don't look too familiar.
Who is the cowboy who's sleepin' beside me?
Well, he's awfully cute,
But how'd I get his shirt on?
I had too much tequila last night.
All those little shooters,
How I love to drink them down.
Come on bartender, let's have another round.
Well, the music is playin',
And my spirits are high.
Tomorrow might be painful,
But tonight we're gonna fly.
José Curervo
You are a friend of mine.
I like to drink you with a little salt and lime.
Everytime we get together,
I sure have a good time.
You're my friend, you're the best...
Mí Amigo....
José Cuervo, you are a friend of mine!

Does that mean it's Margarita Day too?? :)

My heart throb was Rick Nelson too. My mother loved Elvis, I loved Ricky. :)

Your water for the deer reminded me of our hummers. John has to refill them every dang day! That's why we buy 25 lb. bags of sugar at a time.

Yes T, have a Maggie! Boy, you certainly are feeding the hummingbird population down there!!! I have 3 hummingbirds! xo

Yes we have one jumbo feeder and two regular size ones.

They absolutely swarm and the feeding area is just black with hummers. Keeps John busy refilling them all the time. They are so much fun to watch. The grand babies love watching them too.

All your wildlife is like at our place also, several deer, two beautiful 4 points, does and little ones. also Canada geese ( two families each year hatch their goslings here ) wild ducks galore, mostly Teals & hens some wood ducks also. Plus a white Egret & a blue Heron, oh yes, Hawks & Turkey buzzard migrations. We do have a large pond we put in yrs. ago, down in our field, that we can watch all this from our house.
Sometimes cyotes, bear & cougar.Now in the mix is our grandkids free range ducks and chickens.

PS: GR.grandaughter Kylee just won another blue ribbon #24,iceskating in Sun Valley.

Thanks for the note Love! Yes, the joys of living in the boonies are all the neat animals. When we lived in So. Cal in the suburbs we only saw sparrows and crows! I have a pond too, but it's way up by the BLM and can't see it from here. Oh well... Glad you have such a neat parade. And WOW for Kylee!!!! xo
