Congressman Walden ~ Picture of the Day ~ Smoke 2017 & 2016 ~ Fires ~ Water Drinkin' Bruiser ~ VJ Day ~ International Bacon Day

Good 57º smokey morning.

We warmed up more yesterday. Topped at 104º.

Well, today is the 37th anniversary of my 35th birthday. Plans for today? Don't know what they are. Brian won't tell me!

I received this birthday letter from our US Congressman Greg Walden...

Greg is a great guy and he works hard to help our veterans!

Picture of the day............ oh so adorable!!

The smoke was again horrible.
Looking back at 2016 we also were inundated with smoke from fires then also... 
Here is the map of the fires in our area...

So, I keep a glass of water for me on my desk and a glass of water for Bruiser on my desk too, as he likes to drink mine! Well, having his own doesn't stop him from drinking mine!

So then he gets comfy and lays down and then drinks from his...

VJ Day
International Bacon Day : the Saturday before Labor Day
(LOL, I have a box of these!)

Bacon Day and International Bacon Day celebrates crispy strips of salted pork...Bacon! This is a day to thoroughly enjoy bacon at every meal. Snack time, too. It is recommend that you enjoy bacon today in social gatherings. So, go ahead, and have a bacon party!!
Suggested Bacon Menu for this Day:
 Start the day with bacon and eggs. Go ahead, take a couple extra strips.
For lunch, its definitely a BLT or Turkey Club with Bacon sandwich. And, don't forget a cup of potato and bacon soup.
Dinner can be a wide range of entrees, from a bacon cheeseburger to a bacon wrapped steak or bacon wrapped  scallops. Your salad should be topped with bacon bits, as well as your loaded baked potato.
For snack, it's cheesey bacon
It appears that Bacon Day in December and International Bacon Day evolved separately.

Today's Motto: Everything tastes better with bacon!
