On Saturday Sami was in a gymnastics meet in Ashland. She took 1 3rd place, 3 1st places, and won 1st place all around! WOW, great job Sami!!!!
But today is a special day.... friend Rick Castro, aka Kickstand (LASD ret) is celebrating a birthday today. (This is quite a birthday for you Ricky!!! LOL, I won't cop to your age!) With his bride Lynda (LASD ret):
When I worked ELA and Rick was a Chief and would be on his way to the station.... I would make sure the trustees knew and kept a parking space close to the door available for him. Ha ha ha... sometime later one of the trustees said they thought that it was my husband I was saving a parking space for!
Have a GREAT day Kickstand!! Love you both!!! xoxoxo

Later I put Dude in the car and took the trash to the road and then to Ray's Market to check out their corned beef. They had a 2 for sale. Good deal, ended up $2.99 a pound. I got the carrots, celery, Guinness beer, potatoes, and some peanuts for the cake.... but, unfortunately when I got home I discovered I didn't have enough butter to make the cake. Dang! I guess it will have to wait until Wednesday.
Dinner was an Omaha steak and some roasted root veggies (sweet potato, cauliflower, yellow carrots, red onions, and I added some bell pepper. These came from Omaha also. http://www.omahasteaks.com/shop/ ) The veggies I tossed with olive oil and some garlic salt and roasted them in the oven. The steak cooked in the Air Fryer...
Ahhhhhh..... chair, wine, TV.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.
