Lounging Bruiser ~ Paul Blart & LASD Mounted ~ Menagerie Out Back ~ Cocktail ~ NY Traffic ~ Chips 'n Dips

Good 39ยบ cloudy foggy morning.  Predictions are for AM clouds and PM sun. I hope so!       
It totally cracks me up the way Bruiser "lounges" on the dining room step...

I got this from high school pal, Greg Lundell. It took me totally by surprise! I just about fell off my chair from laughter! The email said, "Do you know anything about horses?" Ok, so here is Kevin James (Paul Blart Mall Cop and King of Queens) and I think this is Leah Remini as the LASD Mounted Deputy .. not positive though. Don't be sipping coffee (or any liquid!) while you watch this!!


Looked out the bathroom window and there was a menagerie! Deer, goose, and strutting turkey.....

Then the crows showed up... must have been 12-15. Never get their picture as they are so very skitterish and take off at any movement by a human or my dog or cat!
Yesterday was back therapy day, a stop at the Senior Center to deliver some items for their kitchen, pharmacy for pills, the market for a birthday cake for my neighbor Cindy, and Woodville Rentals to talk to Larry about getting my lawnmower fixed. Larry was not there and so I left my number AGAIN!
I took Cindy her cake and played the video of the bear I got Sami for her birthday singing Happy Birthday!
And if you are interested, a short 1½ minute video of Sami's party. I figured out how to put pictures on youtube so it's a slide show. Yeah, learned something new!!
From John Anderson (LASD ret) Love it!!!

Pretty and soft looking when she was young... then the tough look and those eyebrows!

       .....he was always just too odd for my taste!

1937 – Craig Breedlove, American land speed record holder
Last night's cocktail was lemon vodka. Mmmmmmm, so good!

Dinner was a "clean out the freezer" meal.... leftover crab soba stir-fry.
Soba noodles, olives, mushrooms, 'fake' crab, tomatoes, celery. OMGOOD!
Later I was watching the news and as the NY News was ending they show a picture of the area around Times Square. I know LA has lots of traffic, but this is insane!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.

Here are a bunch of dip recipes....some sound so HEAVENLY!
