41st Anniversary ~ Pistachio Muffins ~ Things To Ponder ~ Hidden Menu Items ~ US Army Birthday ~ Flag Day

Good 51ยบ cloudy morning.

There is a possibility of rain, but very slim... radar all to the north of us..

Flag Day 1975.
41 years ago today Jerry and I said our 'I do's in the courtyard of the Congregational Church on San Gabriel Blvd in San Gabriel.

Steve Voors (LASD) was Jerry's best man and Sandy (Todoran- Wilson S'63) Beck was my matron of honor. Kristen was the flower girl and Brian the ring-bearer. A lot of Jerry's friends couldn't get the time off, but showed up (on duty) and there was a line of radio cars out in front of the church! Our reception was at home.

We had a water bottle filled with wine (this one I still have...)

and a beer keg. Mom made a cake, she and my sisters made sandwiches. We had quite a party! We headed to San Francisco for our honeymoon the next day. Happy Anniversary Darling!

Yesterday I went into town to send off my estimated quarterly state taxes, get some cracked corn for the birds, drop off some things at the senior center,
had a chat in the store parking lot with my friend and Rogue River policeman John Foster, and stop at the market for chicken thighs. They also had pistachio muffins. Got some!! They are green and looked so yummy. Here's a recipe...

When I got home Dude had left me a mess. He chewed up a Kleenex box!
Some things to "ponder" from email pal Gator:
Why is 'bra' singular and 'panties' plural?
Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?
If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a stupid song about him?
The last of the hidden menu items...
Sonic fried pickles
Sonic has been holding out on us for awhile now.  They have a whole stock of fried pickles hidden in the depths of the kitchen.  If you don’t know fried pickles, you need to get acquainted.  They are a delicious deep-fried, Southern treat that all pickle lovers will adore.

Jack in the box loaded grilled breakfast sandwich
Jack has created another meat lover’s dream with their own masterpiece.  The loaded sandwich comes with 2 fried eggs, 2 slices of ham, 2 strips of bacon, 2 cheese slices and then they give you the option to add sausage, turkey or extra bacon.  Everyone loves options.
