Heat/Clouds/Smoke ~ Dude ~ Miracle Noodle Spaghetti ~ Animal Friends ~ Shot Glass ~ Pork Egg Rolls ~ Oysters

Good 52º wispy clouds sunny morning.

The weather yesterday was weird. Clouds and no sun. 1pm it was 89º, 2pm 98º, 3pm 102º.

A little sun shown through about 2pm.

Special day... Dude came to live with me on this date in 2013.

Such a GREAT dog. I am blessed to have him. Thank you UPS Dave!!!!
Dude and Maggie got along great, but sadly she passed away 18 days later.  :o(

Yesterday I fixed my first "Miracle Noodle" recipe. The pouch:

These are Japanese noodles and the company was started by a doctor. This dish had a total of 160 calories, it was very tasty, and filled me up for lunch! Open pouch, put in microwave for 60 seconds and taaaaaaa daaaaaa....

Since I bought the variety pack, I will be trying the other ones.... more noodles and rice etc. 

How about this.... strange animal friends
Must be warm wherever they are... look at that tongue!
