And my Jerry working Watch Deputy at Temple Sheriff's Station, smokin' his "ceee-gar" !

He would always take the paper band off the cigar and ask me, "Do you like music?" Of course I said, "yes" and then he'd take the band and put it on my finger saying, "Good, here's a whole band!"

I looked out back yesterday and the momma turkey and babies were out there... 

A few minutes later the turkeys were gone but Mr. Big Ears was out there...

Mike came over yesterday afternoon. I had a bunch of metal stuff that needed to go to the recycle place. He filled the bed of his pick up with it. He also took my stair stepper, looks similar to this one..

You can buy it on line ... amazon has it and also:
At Safeway and it was $4.99 a jar.

US Coast Guard Day

U.S. Coast Guard Day honors the military branch that protects our waters and shorelines. The U.S. Defense Department suggests that this day is largely an internal celebration for all Coast Guard personnel and their families, past and present. But, we'd like to encourage everyone to honor the brave members of this important branch of the military.
Celebrate U.S. Coast Guard Day by learning more about the responsibilities and functions of the U.S. Coast Guard. They are now playing an even  more extensive role in Homeland Security to protect our country.
We salute Coast Guard personnel today and every day. We hope you do, too.
