Omaha Steaks Chicken/Fish ~ Drivers In A Hurry ~ Lee Trevino ~ SUPER Good Use for Duct Tape ~ Patty/Cliff/Lynda Castro ~ Air Fryer Dinner ~ National Dog Day

Good 51º clear sunny morning. We hit 100º yesterday.

Breakfast.. leftover cooked yam and some stuffed mushrooms (I get these 'pre-stuffed' at Safeway) I heated. Topped the yams with sriracha mayonnaise and had celery to go with. YUMMMMMMM!

It's great to be back with my desktop. While I was "off line" I had received my Omaha Steaks order.. Got the Breast of Chicken. It comes like this one with wild rice:

Also Chicken Cordon Bleu (stuffing is deli ham and Swiss cheese), with Broccoli & Cheese, and Chicken Kiev (stuffed with butter and coated with egg and bread crumbs).
Also in that order was Caramel Apple Tartlets:

...and Chicken in Pastry

...and Stuffed Sole with Scallops and Crabmeat

Went into town for some errands. As I was approaching the grammar school, a tree service had half the street blocked off with flaggers and "Slow" and "Stop" signs. I stopped and the guy behind me, obviously in too much of a hurry to stop, went around me and turned on a side street. No patience? Well, then I got the "Slow" sign and headed into town. As I passed by on Main Street the "no patience" guy was just arriving at the stop sign by Ace. LOL. I beat him!

Here's a funny I got from pal Gator....
Lee Trevino: Why I Mow My Own Yard (a true story)

One day, shortly after joining the PGA Tour in 1965, Lee Trevino, a professional golfer and married man was at his home in Dallas Texas mowing his front lawn as he always did.
A lady driving by in a shiny Cadillac, stopped in front of his house, lowered the window, and asked, "Excuse me, do you speak English?"
Lee responded, "Yes Ma'am, I do." The lady then asked, "What do you charge to do yard work?"
Lee said, "Well, the woman in this house lets me sleep with her."
The lady hurriedly put the car into gear and sped off.

What a GREAT use for duct tape:

While I was not doing my blog there were several birthdays... My friend Patty K turned 83 years young on the 19th, LASD ret Lynda Castro celebrated her special day on the 21st, and Patty's hubby Cliff turned 85 on the 23rd. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ALL!!!! oxox

National Dog Day

National Dog Day has two goals: to honor dogs, and to rescue dogs from homelessness and abuse. It's an opportunity for us to recognize and appreciate the value and importance of dogs in our lives.
This day is intended to honor dogs for all that they do for us. In addition to giving love and companionship, dogs help us out in countless ways. They are watchdogs for our safety. They lead the blind. Dogs aid in search and rescue, and they seek out bombs and drugs.
The second goal of National Dog Day is to rescue dogs in need. On occasion, dogs need us to save them from homelessness and abuse. The goal of the National Dog Day foundation is to rescue 10,000 dogs a year. Lend a hand to help a dog in need today, or any day.
