Moon Info ~ Toys For Tots ~ Chat With Old Marine ~ Trump Flight ~ Prowling Bruiser


Good 40º foggy morning. What else is new!

Warmed up a whole degree warmer than Thursday, all the way to 44º yesterday! A few raindrops about 2pm. Six of them I think, or was it 5?
Yesterday I put on my Marines sweatshirt and went to Wally World. I spent $109.00 and got a 12 plush and stuffed animals, including a few that have a blankets, including Chewbacca (that Brian wanted to keep!!!) and took them to the Toys For Tots barrel in Brian's office.....

They are all so cute and soft and snuggy!

When I was heading into Rogue River, there was a red pickup in front of me with a USMC licence plate and Trump and Greg Walden bumper stickers. He pulled into the pizza place so I followed him. When he got out I told him I wanted to give him a thumbs up for his license plate, the USMC hat he was wearing, and his bumper stickers. We shook hands. He was pleased and saw my shirt and asked if I was a Marine. I said, "Close, but no. I married one and gave birth to one". He laughed and said, "You know the wife of a Marine is the Sgt. Major of the house!"

Then home. Picked up Dude (because he really wanted a ride!) and went to the post office to get a package and the bank to deposit checks.
