Weather ~ Throw Back Thursday ~ Errands ~ Full Moon

Good 47ยบ cloudy morning.
Well the weather forecasters goofed. NO SUN yesterday!

Hopefully today. It even rained at the coast according to pal Patty, and we got some drizzle here in the late afternoon. No rain forecast. Duh............. Today is the same forecast... sun in the afternoon. We'll see.

Throw Back Thursday...
Daddy and I in front of Robert E Lee's mansion.
Such a dummy!!!

Yesterday was haircut day. Always have a great time with Leah my hair girl. We chatter and chatter about everything! Next it was to Brian's office with my iPad. He is going to update it and fix it. Didn't have my correct password, so had to call him later. Next was the Three Rivers lab for my potassium blood test. Safeway for groceries. Home! Had to reset my password for Apple. While I was out driving yesterday I was wondering why almost every single driver was driving like an Adam Henry. Then it dawned on me, it was a full moon!!!!!
When I worked the desk at Lakewood Station answering 911 and calls for service, the calls that came in on a night with a full moon were NUTZ!!! It certainly does seem to have an affect on people.

Dinner was um, late lunch/early dinner at 3pm. I had 'clean out the fridge leftover ravioli and some of the fresh fruit from the store..... cantaloupe, pineapple, and honeydew.

I was going to have chips and dip since it was that day yesterday, but filled up on the ravioli and melons. There is always today!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Throw Back Thursday. Ciao.
