Good 49º CLEAR SUNNY MORNING!!! OMGOSH, no smoke and no clouds! Amazing~!!
Yesterday it stayed dark and gloomy with a heavy smoke cover. We didn't have any clouds, as the radar shows rain north and then by afternoon the sun came out!! OMG.
We topped at 86º. It will be hotter today, for sure.
Breakfast was a hamburger (I know.) cooked and set on a Dave's Killer Bread
with mayonnaise and fresh baby spinach and a couple slices of tomato..
A treat with my coffee was a slice of Father's Table Carrot Roll...
On Friday night a couple was interviewed, she is 96 and he 104. Their names are Irma and Harvey! They were stunned to have the same names as the hurricanes!
Ok, now this got me drooling... it's so easy and looks devastatingly good!
Alfredo Garlic Knot Chicken Ring, with Alfredo dipping sauce...
There is a video here on this link:
I would use the Classico Garlic Alfredo Sauce...
Yesterday was just piddle around day. Some watering. Some cleaning. Planning for dinner. Working on blog.
Historically this date...

.... What a legacy he left. Long line of beautiful smart dogs! Loved the Rin Tin Tin show back in the '50's. "Lt. Rip Masters", James Brown, sent me an autographed photo of he an 'Rinty'! (It's somewhere......)
1929 – Arnold Palmer, American golfer
LOL, Brian's favorite drink is an "Arnold Palmer".... ice tea and lemonade!

1953 – Amy Irving, American actress
..... stick with the brown hair, Amy!
Later I was looking at a FB page, Classic Hollywood/Los Angeles/SFV, and so many neat old photos of places I remember. One was The Hat at Garfield and Valley Blvd in Alhambra. A fav place. Here it is today...
They had (don't know about now) great pastrami sandwiches and nickel coffee. Also another favorite place is at 3rd and Ford in East LA, King Taco. OMG what GREAT tacos~!!! Loved the lingua ones!
So many more places we loved and cruised through are gone... Henry's Drive-In on Valley Blvd, Farmer Boys on Valley Blvd, and Bob's Big Boy on Colorado Blvd.
I remember Alhambra motor officers Seeney and Dimateo who were always at a taco place on Valley Boulevard. Can't remember the name of it. Those two officers were always around and both very nice! Anybody remember the name of the taco place???
Dinner last night was scallops Alfredo (rescued them from the freezer....reruns) atop some fresh baby spinach and chopped tomato. SUPER GOOD!
Then it was chair, wine, and watched the end of America's Got Talent from the night before. Going to the finals this next week. And several episodes of Rookie Blue. Caught up.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Sunday. Ciao.

Sewing Machine Day
Sewing Machine Day celebrates a very important invention ----- the sewing machine. The first sewing machines were made in France in the 1830's. It wasn't until 1846, that they were patented in the U.S. What a great invention. Prior to it's creation, clothes items were sewn together by hand...stitch by stitch.
People who know how to use a sewing machine are dwindling in number. Our mothers and grandmothers had a sewing machine in the house. They used it, too. But, look around your house. Do you have a sewing machine? Chance are, the answers is no.
If you have a sewing machine, enjoy today making things with it. If not, consider picking up sewing as a hobby.
Today's Saying: "A stitch in time saves nine." Interpretation: Saves nine what, you ask. Well, stitches of course. One stitch made right away, prevents further breakage and will not require nine more stitches later.
