Full Moon ~ Rain ~ Dude ~ KISS Military Tribute ~ Anne & Led Fortini ~ Barbetta Suttles ~ Bouillabaisse

Good 35ยบ raining morning. Started raining in the night. So far we've gotten 1" and it keeps on comin'! We won't be able to see the full moon here! Dang!

When we get up in the morning, first thing Dude and Bruiser want to go outside. Then I make my tea and come sit here at my desk. The rain doesn't bother Dude, as he is so excited when he comes back in and gets a good "rub down" with a towel to dry him off.
He loves that!!!!

Yesterday I got this from pal Ellen Naugle, Wilsonite and former next door neighbor... I never really cared for Gene Simmons, but this show he put on for the USO in Iraq was wonderful and my ideas about him have changed a bit! Thanks Ellen!!

I bet this is not something that happens anymore, but in grammar school we all learned The Air Force Song, The US Army Song, The Navy Song... Anchors Away, and The Marines Hymn.

National Bouillabaisse Day

I think that you will agree with me that this is a day to celebrate a tasty Mediterranean fish stew or soup.
