Crow & Turkey Vultures ~ Doe ~ Schwans Order ~ Guacamolé Pita ~ Neighbor's Burglary ~ Dirty Sue Martini ~ American Eagle Day

Good 56º clear sunny morning

Yesterday our temps climbed to  95º and I watered front lawn and back.... Supposed to cool down a bit for the next few days to the 80ºs and then zoom to triple digits by Sunday.

I was bad, breakfast was a splurge (again) ... lemon cake topped with whipped cream, and strawberries. OINK!!! Well, you know... I didn't want the strawberries to go bad. 

It was looking like a disagreement between one of the crows and several turkey vultures up in my pasture! The crow kept dive-bombing the vulture sitting on the tree stump....

The little doe was back up here in the yard and then later laying in the shade down by the barn...

I did get some vegetable items ordered from Schwans... which will be delivered today. I love their micro steam green beans: 
 and I also got some corn, fresh that has been cut off the cob:
, and some fresh green peas:
roasted sweet potatoes:
and mini "Scrambles" which have a crust, scrambled eggs, bacon, white gravy, and cheese: 
All are fresh frozen and can be cooked in the oven or microwave. So tasty, fresh, and easy! AND they don't spoil if you haven't used them right away like fresh do!
Lunch was a "guacamolé" pizza. Actually I heated a pita slice for 30 seconds in the microwave, slathered it with guacamolé, topped with Parmesan cheese, and tomatoes.
   OMGOOOOD! And messy!!!!

Later in the morning I went into town to the post office to pick up a package. When I got home I noticed the older gentleman, Ralph, across the road struggling with his trash container. He uses a cane and is quite crippled up. I ran across the road and helped him buy putting the can down by his house.
You can see here by looking down his driveway how close he is to the road:

He was going to put it into the back of his pick up truck, but no way could he stand with a cane and lift it! Then he told me a couple nights ago some valuables were stolen from inside his truck. About $1500 worth. Don't know why he left it unlocked, but........................ The police think it's a couple young guys who live on Earhardt Road and are always walking and wearing hoodies. I keep EVERYTHING up here locked even though I am quite a ways off the road. I also have motion control lights and a big dog who barks. Oh, and guns!!!!

Yesterday, since it was Martini Day I made one for me.... Dirty Sue olive juice mix, vodka, Daddy's shaker, Mediterranian stuffed olives, LASD shot glass, and my "tipsy" wine glass:

Mmmmmmm............ sooooooooo good!

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