Bad Avocados! ~ Murder Sentence ~ Turkey Fight ~ Golf Caddie ~ My Photo On KOBI5-TV ~ Italian Breaded Veal ~ Sunset ~ Chop Suey

Good 54º super smokey morning. Yesterday stayed thick as molasses most of the day and finally in the afternoon it cleared a bit and I could see my mountain. Gone again now! We topped at 95º here in Rogue River, but Grants Pass was 100º.

Breakfast yesterday..

A couple hard boiled eggs, leftover vegetables from dinner, avocado, and yogurt. I am so disappointed in the avocados. I got a bag of 4 from Costco. Two were perfect, one was so horrible I threw it out, and this one was sadly not perfect. I do know a bit about avocados ... how to store them, when they are ripe, etc. Daddy had an avocado tree with about 5 varieties grafted onto it. We had Hass and Fuerte, but can't remember the others... They all matured at different times of the year, so we had avocados year round! So, the avocados 2 out of the 4 being bad, pissed me off!

Talk about things that piss you off..... this is SO DISGUSTING... What they did should happen to them!

I heard some odd type of "gobbling" outside, and here were two Toms in a fight...

The one on the left was going after the other one and puffing out his feathers. It's an assertion of dominance.  Here's an example of what they were doing...

And births this date include...

Interesting fact shared by my pal Sugar Bear:
In golf, where did the term 'Caddie' come from?
When Mary Queen of Scots went to France as a young girl, Louis, King of France, learned that she loved the Scots game 'golf.' He had the first course outside of Scotland built for her enjoyment.  To make sure she was properly chaperoned (and guarded) while she played, Louis hired cadets from a military school to accompany her. 
Mary liked this a lot and when she returned to Scotland (not a very good idea in the long run), she took the practice with her.  In French, the word cadet is pronounced 'ca-day' and the Scots changed it into caddie. 

I had sent a photo into KOBI5-TV of the smoke hiding my mountain yesterday ..... they put it on the 6 o'clock news!!!

Dinner was an Omaha Italian Breaded Veal Patty. Ground veal with Italian seasonings, bread crumbs, Romano cheese, garlic, and cornmeal....

Thawed and sauteéd in olive oil and had it along with some Schwans green beans and some of my homemade sweet hot chili sauce. OMGOOOD!

Sunset last night...

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