Tucker's Little League Game ~ Police Activity ~ Sole Almondine ~ Little Big League ~ Dodgers ~ Gingerbread

Good 63º clear sunny morning. We hit 98º yesterday but it was cloudy and super humid. Today should be clear but about the same temp. Yesterday 3pm-ish:

Yesterday, thankfully before the heat, Tucker had his last of season little league game at 9am. Brian had set up a tent for Sami and her pals......

Here is Tucker and his base hit.....

Jen is the team mom and had set up a party for the kids.... goodies and pizza....

She even made baseball cards for each of the kids with their picture on it...

Brian had set up his State Farm pop up over the stands. Nice!! Then he moved it by the pergola where the party was...

I didn't stay for the party. Was getting hot and I wanted to get home and check on Bruiser. He stayed outside when I left but Dude was comfy inside with the AC on. On the way to the game on the southbound side of I-5 just north of Rogue River was heavy police activity. There was a pick up truck with it's doors open and about 6 or 8 radio cars... Oregon State Police, Grants Pass Police, and Rogue River PD. One of the OSP officers was walking along the edge of the road looking down and carrying an assault rifle. Obviously looking for someone who was possibly armed! On the way back home after 2 hours one OSP car was still there with the pick up.

So, I made sure I saw the news to find out what that was all about. Alas, nothing was mentioned on the news!

When I got home Bruiser was hanging out in the shade. He came in and slept for several hours. I looked up what rabies shots do to cats and in some it makes them very lethargic for up to 48 hours. Ah ha....I was wondering why he didn't want to go out first thing in the morning as he usually does, but he just napped until his breakfast. Then he slept most of the day. He did go out back once, and I looked and he was sleeping on the seat of my golf cart. This morning he's feeling back like his old self and was outside first thing!

Later for dinner I cooked one of the Sole Almondine I got from Omaha Steaks and had the rest of the veggies from the Friday. Put sole in a 450º oven for 25 minutes. Voilá! How easy is that!
The sole as REALLY good and crunchy on the outside. Yes!!!

Then I watched a movie, Little Big League (1994).... A young little league player inherits the National League team from his grandfather, Minnesota Twins. It was a cute movie. On the Hallmark Channel.

Then I watched the Dodgers beat the Braves 4 to zip!

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

National Gingerbread Day

This holiday is about bringing awareness of gingerbread to those who have not yet tried a version of gingerbread. Gingerbread is known for many food varieties. Everything from gingerbread "bread" to cookies and gingerbread houses.

Research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. However this holiday has been celebrated for years on this date. This is referred to as a "National" day, however there are no congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Still, something good to celebrate!
