Full Moon ~ Clouds/Rain ~ Deer ~ Dude ~ Cat Decal ~ Car Crash ~ Jim Harper ~ Sami The Champ ~ Mexican Corn Salad Dip ~ Donald Duck Day

Good 46º somewhat cloudy morning. 
Full moon. Rain predicted for tonight.

Yesterday the rain was heavy at times in the morning then tapered off and got a bit breezy.... well, downright windy and only 65º! Burrrrrrrr....

And out munching on some grass was this momma deer..

And Dude loves laying in the sun....

This is something I saw and had to have. It's a decal and I don't know if I will put it on my fridge or on the back of my car!

Wednesday I stopped in Rogue River and saw this wreck in front of the credit union:
The woman, elderly and with a heavy British accent hit the gas instead of the brake ... she, fortunately was not injured!
Today high school pal Jim Harper is celebrating his birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JIM~!!

High school photo and with his bride Sally and their pup Rufus.
He and Sally's granddaughter just graduated the police academy in Nevada and will be working for Washoe County Sheriff's Dept. One of my "sons" Jim Forbus retired from there recently.

And births this date include....
1910 – Robert Cummings, American actor (d. 1990)

1963 – Johnny Depp, American actor
"In 2011, Depp became a U.S. resident again, because France wanted him to become a permanent resident, which he said would require him to pay income tax in both countries". IDIOT. He doesn't deserve to live here!!! He badmouths the heqq out of our country and yet taking fools money for his movies is not a problem! I understand that now he has a place up here in Ashland. Oh joy.

1981 – Natalie Portman, Israeli-born actress
Our Sami is amazing. She won State Champion!!!!! 

In the afternoon yesterday I took Dude in for his "mani/pedi". I know he wasn't happy about that, but he does love to ride in the car! Doc gave him an exam and said all was well. He's healthy and slim and looking fit.

Now here's a good summer idea...

Mexican Corn Salad Dip

Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 20 minutes Total Time: 25 minutes Servings4
Mexican style street corn in dip form that is just perfect for scooping with tortilla chips!

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cups corn (about 4 ears), cut from the cob
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and finely diced
  • 1/2 jalapeno, seeded and finely diced
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 handful cilantro, chopped
  • 1 lime, juice
  • 1/4 cup cotija (or feta), crumbled
  • chili powder to taste
  1. Melt the butter in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat add the corn, toss and let it sit cooking until lightly charred, mix it up and let it char again, about 6-10 minutes, before adding the jalapeno and bell pepper, sauteing for a minute and removing from heat.
  2. Mix everything and serve warm or at room temperature.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF. Ciao.
