Summer Solstice ~ All Time Hottest Temperatures in US ~ Dude ~ Barb Voors ~ Acronyms ~ My Cat From Hell ~ Bill Riordan ~ Peaches & Cream

Good 54º clear sunny morning.

At 5:34 this morning, it was 53.4º ! LOL....

Today "Summer Begins". It's the first day of summer, aka the Summer Solstice, or the longest day of the year!

This shared by pal Carol Nasca (Wilson '63):

Another reason I live in Oregon!

Yesterday morning, first thing, I took Dude to the vet's for his teeth cleaning. Since he was to be sedated he couldn't have anything to eat after 6pm the night before. So, that meant no treat first thing when he went out in the morning and no breakfast. OMGOSH, he looked at me like I didn't love him or he had done something bad. Poor guy!!

When I got back home after dropping Dude at the vet's, the pest control guy came by. Of course there was no Dude to bark, so I didn't even know he was here until he knocked on the door. I nearly jumped out of my skin!
Later the Schwan's guy, Sean, dropped off my recent order.

All those veggies! Barely got them all in the freezer!

Today is a special birthday, my friend and wife of Steve Voors (LASD ret), Barbara.

I was watching one of my favorite shows, My Cat From Hell, with Jackson Galaxy ( about a couple in Sherman Oaks that have 5 cats, one is blind. The husband, Eric, looked so familiar then it dawned on me it was Eric Roberts, actor and brother of Julia Roberts! (

Their home was nice, but not one you'd expect to be owned by one of Hollywood's own. And right on a busy street .... Anyway, Jackson told them since their blind cat runs away for prolonged periods of time they needed to fence in part of their yard. They thought the blind one was staying away because of two kittens they got. Well, Jackson fixed that and they got the fence up. Their other cats are indoor/outdoor cats also and they would leave doors open, even the front door, for them to come and go. HUH? Open doors???

Really interesting fencing. If I ever move and still have Bruiser I would get one of these!

Later I picked some packages at the post office and then picked up Dude from the vet's. The vet said he is in great shape and health. One of the assistants brought him out to the lobby and Dude saw me and dragged her!!! He was sooooooooo happy to get to go home! He got his treat this morning and is looking forward to breakfast!

Last evening I had a super great phone chat with Bill Riordan (LASD ret) who worked at Temple with Jerry and gang. It's so nice to stay in touch. Lots of great memories of deputies we worked with and good times. He recently had lunch with Steve Voors (1030 Dude) and Pete Loomis (Loom Loom). Thanks for the call Bill!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.

National Peaches & Cream Day

Peaches and whipped cream, peaches and cream, peaches and ice cream? Even sour cream! YUMMMM
We had a freestone peach tree in our backyard when I was growing up. OMGOSH they were SOOOOOO good. Fresh picked off the tree and gobbled down!

Five Food Finds about Peaches & Cream:

  1. Did you know?  Peaches were once known as Persian apples.
  2. “You’re a real peach” originated from the tradition of giving a peach to the friend you liked.
  3. Peaches were mentioned as early as 79 A.D. in literature.
  4. A medium peach contains only 37 calories.
  5. There are over 700 varieties of peaches-some Chinese varieties are even flat like hockey pucks!
