Friend Trish Bowler posted this of her granddaughter Isabella.... She isn't fond of vegetables, but for some reason she asked her mom to bring home zucchini from the market... I just thought this picture was toooooo cute!!!

Yesterday it really clouded up. The first two about 7:45am and then an hour later... 

We didn't get any rain, but the clouds lasted most of the day. Some radar around. Stayed breezy.

Another birthday today is Barry Perrou (LASD ret) HAPPY BIRTHDAY BARRY! I hope you have a GREAT day!

Historically this date..

1914 – A male servant of American architect Frank Lloyd Wright sets fire to the living quarters of the architect's Wisconsin home, Taliesin, murders seven people and burns the living quarters to the ground.
.......... he was definitely and interesting man. I love his architecture! Click on the word "Taliesin" and read the fascinating story of that home.... his second wife and her murder. His 'winter home' he built in Scottsdale AZ and called it Taliesin West. I would love to go there and see it. Some day. Scottsdale is a very neat place!

Dude and I took a "run" to the road to take the trash for pickup tomorrow. We went when it was still cool...... 70º.
Dinner again was with my Air Fryer.

I took an Omaha Steaks Chicken in Pastry and coated it with olive oil. Cooked it at 350º for about 10 minutes, then added in some mushrooms tossed with olive oil and garlic salt and three veggie cakes, also drizzled with olive oil and cooked for another 7 minutes.  

SUPER good, easy, cleanup a breeze (everything in the dishwasher!)
Chair and wine. Watched some of the Olympics, the news, and a Blue Bloods.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.
