Delphi 2009. Holding the Rogue River Press. When traveling the Press will put your photo in the paper if you are holding a copy of the paper...

Yesterday was 'catch up day'. Tuesday I was so danged tired from being up til 1am hearing the idiot up the road shooting almost 400 rounds, setting off firecrackers, and explosions after 11pm! Sigh..... I did take 3 naps Tuesday!! Once I sit in my chair ... zonkers!

On this date in 1989 my Kristen graduated from the LASD Academy. Deputy Pendleton!
Sheriff Sherman Block, Kristen, me, Jerry....

Special birthday was yesterday and I missed it! A Belated Happy Birthday to Karen Tomes, (wife of the infamous Larry..LASD ret)
Taken at Laughlin this year^

Today is National Strawberry Sundae Day! If you’re looking for the perfect way to cool down on a hot summer day, then look no further. A strawberry sundae made with ice cream, whipped cream, and fresh strawberries will do 
the trick!  

Did you know that strawberries are actually a member of the rose family, and are the only fruit with seeds on the outside? Another fun fact is that eating eight strawberries will give kids more than enough of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C!

To celebrate National Strawberry Sundae Day, enjoy a delicious homemade sundae from your local ice cream shop or invite some friends and family over for an impromptu ice cream social!
