Fog/Rain ~ Medford Appt ~ Costco ~ George Washington's Birthday ~ Trish's Special Day

Good 35ยบ foggy morning. Since yesterday we got another 1/2" of rain.

Yesterday I left out of here wayyyyy too early, but had a doc appointment in Medford.

Got that over, and by the way, all is good. I had a fasting test so no coffee or tea or food in the morning. I was STARVING!!! I read that coffee on the weekend is "recreational" but on weekdays it's "medicinal" !!! Boy, when you are used to having it and don't get any, wow!
I had a nice chat with a man in the waiting room. On the TV an OLD show was playing, Perry Mason! I couldn't hear the sound, but they showed a view of the LA Co Hall of Justice. That got my attention, then I saw Raymond Burr and Barbara Hale,
I commented about remembering that because I was old! He laughed and asked how old I was. I said 71. He said, you're still a kid and I thought he was going to tell me he was way older. Not. He said he was 69. Then we chatted. He had been a medic in Viet Nam, Army 1st Infantry. He had been exposed to "agent orange" (
which had caused him to have both hips replaced and a pacemaker in his heart. Anyway, nice man. Very crippled. Sad.

Then I went to Costco...
Hadn't been for a while so needed EVERYTHING (paper towels, TP, Kleenex, chicken stock, lemon juice)! I also got a quiche (these come 2 to a package...) You can microwave them or cook in the oven. Last night I cooked the spinach artichoke one.

I wanted the Harvest Creek pulled pork again, but they didn't have any so got the Chicken in Buffalo Sauce...

Sounds great and would make super tacos or taquitos, a sandwich, or a wrap! Will let you know.

Today is the 22nd .... George Washington's birthday. This is the day Brian was "due". We had a big earthquake in So. Cal in 1971 on February 9th, called the Sylmar Earthquake. That prompted Brian to show up early... on the 14th and not wait for the 22nd! So, doesn't matter, he was destined to be born on a "special day" ... like his sister Kristen (Halloween baby!)

So, I heated the quiche in the oven. It was really really good. Will enjoy the rest of it.
