June Gloom ~ Oregon Sunbathing ~ Bruiser ~ Brush Hogger Dave ~ Crime Scene Tape ~ Corn on the Cob/Chicken Fries/Dippping Sauce ~ Red Rose Day

Good 51º dark cloudy gloomy morning. Ahhhh.... nothing has changed! June Gloom for sure!!!
Yesterday we had a heat wave. By 2pm it was 62º!

This is so true:

Bruiser is such a clingy guy. He laid down on my mouse pad to stay close....

On May 20th Dave Bourisaw was up here brush-hogging my pastures. Two full days work....

Cuts back a lot on the fire danger.

Personal life interesting. Closeted for YEARS!!!

This was a great idea. Dennis Slocumb (LASD ret) said a bird built a nest in the wreath hanging on their front door. He put up the tape to keep the delivery people from scaring the birds. They have all flown away now, so he can stop freaking out delivery people! LOL!

Dinner was corn on the cob, since it was Corn On The Cob Day.
Always put a little vinegar in the pot of boiling water, put in the corn, take off the heat and let sit until ready to eat. Vinegar keeps the corn crunchy!
I made some slather/dipping sauce... BF Mayo, basil, garlic, all mixed together with some taco seasoning... sort of Italian Mexican flavors....

I slathered the corn with sauce. Cooked some of Schwans Chicken Fries (OH so yummy!!!!) and had the sauce for dipping..
PERFECT! Those chicken fries are so good, I am addicted!!! 1½ minutes in microwave or bake in oven. Or......... heat them in the air fryer!
Sometimes signs are just stupid...

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.

Red Rose Day
(On the side of my house...)

Red Rose Day is a time to enjoy and appreciate America's favorite flower.....the red rose. A red rose signifies love. A June setting for Red Rose Day is very appropriate, as this is by far the most popular month for weddings. And, they are in bloom in the gardens across America this month.
In addition to being the most popular cut flower, roses are also the most popular flower in flower beds and around foundation of houses, garages and sheds. They are easy to grow, producing a bounty of sweet scented flowers from June up to the first frost.
