Sami's Gymnastic Competition ~ Elmer's BLT Crab Salad ~ "Big Al" Rodriguez ~ NFL Games ~ National Hat Day


Good 29º foggy morning.
Yesterday the sun FINALLY came out and we hit a high of 46º!
, where Sami does her gymnastics. There was a competition. I took a zillion photos. Sami was AWESOME. I will post them tomorrow.


I also had a fun time talking to the people sitting behind me and next to me... Mary and Michael and Christine. A number of things in common and we all had a good time. Mary's granddaughter was in Sami's group and Christine came as a family friend.

Ok, so then I went to Elmer's.

I had purchased a certificate for $10 for $20 worth of food. I got a BLT Crab Salad to go and had a glass of wine while I waited.

This salad is awesome, lettuce, crab, avocado, hard boiled egg, bacon, tomatoes, and olives. Elmer's also owns Tap Rock, where I usually get the salad. LOVE it!!!

Today is also Deputy "Big Al" Rodriguez's birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY AL!! Al and I in 2007 when he stopped by on his way hunting in Montana.... or somewhere like that! It was just after Jerry died and he wanted to stop and give me a hug! Al worked at ELA when I was there. My buddy!

National Hat Day
Daddy always wore a hat:

National Hat Day is set aside to wear and enjoy a hat of your choice and style. Isn't it great that hats come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and styles? There's one to fit every size head and personality.
top, hat, day
Hats are used to make a statement, or to promote a cause or a product. Back in 1797, the introduction of the Top Hat almost caused a riot. The top hat was first worn by James Heatherington in London England. As Heatherington strolled through the streets of London, England displaying his Top Hat, crowds gathered, Some people began to push and shove. Heatherington was fined for "going about in a manner that frightened timid people".
Oh yeah... hats have logical uses, too. Some hats (Aka helmets), offer safety protection. Some hats keep your head warm, or the sun out of your eyes....how boring.
National Hat Day is not intended to just keep your noggin warm. Its a chance to make a statement and to display you favorite headgear. We suggest you wear a number of different hats over the course of the day.

Did you know? More body heat is lost from your head than other parts of the body. So, wearing a hat goes a long way towards staying warm on a cold winter's day (or night).
