Clouds ~ Two Bite Pastries ~ Bruiser ~ Culver Hotel ~ Angels Flight ~ LGBT ~ Alice Reardon ~ Jim & Olga Duran ~ Egg Rolls ~ Smokey Sunset


Good 47º cloudy morning. 80% chance of rain tonight.... we'll see. Praying for it because of all the fires still going like mad!

Yesterday it stayed very cool, mostly in the 50ºs and 60ºs with a smoke and cloud cover all morning. Close to noon we got a bit of sun and warmed to 70º. We eventually topped at 84º for a few minutes then slid back down to 82º and then into the 70ºs.  Since it was so smokey I kept the house closed up and it stayed cool in here. So cool I wrapped up in a blanket to watch TV last night! 



Breakfast was a couple microwaved eggs, yogurt and strawberries, and some "two bite" cinnamon rolls.

These are made by a company called Two Bite in Canada. They make lots of different pastries, all mini...


So, I was just about finished eating and set my dish to the side while I was typing on the computer, and Bruiser came along and dived right in!


This is quite interesting.. a hotel in Culver City, called The Culver Hotel that is 93 years old.... Sort of resembles the Flat Iron Building in NY!



And unless you ever rode Angel's Flight in Los Angeles (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angels_Flight)
you have never seen the inside of one of the cars:
It has been closed for quite awhile for some construction, and just reopened Sept 7th.


Ok, this is funny and I'd like one~!  A new slant on LGBT:


Two special celebrations today... my friend Alice, wife of the notorious Pat Reardon (LASD ret) is celebrating her birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALICE!!!


And friends Jimmy (LASD Lt.) and Olga Duran are celebrating 29 years of married bliss!!! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY KIDS!!!

Later dinner was some of Schwans egg rolls (pork and shrimp) with veggies. OH SO GOOD!!!!

Put the egg rolls drizzled with olive oil in the Air Fryer at 370º for 13 minutes. PERFECT! Crunchy outside and soft inside.



The sunset was smokey again...


And Bruiser was out watching it...

And a little deer was out too....




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

September 17th
Constitution Day

The Constitutional Congress of the United States of America held it's final meeting on September 17, 1787. Do you have any idea why? That's right! It was to sign the Constitution of the United States of America, a document for which they so painstakingly labored to create and perfect.


After the meeting there was still much to do. Individual states then had to meet and vote on it. The U.S. Constitution did not go into effect until  two years later on March 4, 1789.
