Andy & Linda ~ Jen ~ 1932 Ford Roadster ~ Caviar

Good 73ยบ cloudy afternoon. Full moon out there.... be careful!
Yesterday Linda and Andy got here at about 5:30pm. We put their 1932 Ford Roadster in the carport .... Dude sniffed it stem to stern....

Then we headed into Grants Pass to Si Casa Flores and meet up with Brian Jen Tucker Sami and Jean for dinner to celebrate (late) Jen's birthday (7-11).

Dinner was great. Fun time. (more pictures later) Andy and Jerry were Marines together, Brian was a Marine, so we put Andy and Brian next to each other at the end of the table. Brian is also restoring an old step van so he and Andy talked old cars and Marines!

July 18th
National Caviar Day

(OMGOSH, I LOVE caviar!!!)
Something fishy is going on today. It's National Caviar Day. Now, just what's all the roe about this day!?
Caviar is salted fish eggs, or "roe". It is considered a delicacy. Caviar is enjoyed by the upper class, and those of us who occasionally can afford a little of it, just so we can say that we had some. Russian Caviar is reputed to be the very best, most sought after of all caviars. There's red caviar and black caviar, along with other colors. Black is considered the best. Perhaps you should do a taste test.
The most prestigious, and best(??) caviar comes from sturgeon found in the Caspian Sea. But, other fish, including whitefish and salmon, are less expensive alternatives.
Which caviar truely tastes the best? We'll let you be the judge.
Happy National Caviar Day!
