Clouds/Rain ~ Dr. Rachael ~ Little Jewel of New Orleans ~ Bill Postmus ~ My Picture ~ Bobo? ~ Bacon Seasoning ~ Talk Like A Pirate

Good 49ยบ cloudy drizzling morning........

Yesterday it was a lot cooler... and we got some rain starting about 2pm. Total for yesterday and last night is about 1/10".

Went to Medford for my yearly with my regular doc, Rachael Orozco.
Bad time of day... appointment at 4pm. UGH. This was a "Medicare Checkup". OMGOSH, no physical exam, except for BP, pulse, temperature, and the doc listening to my lungs. The rest was a million questions about my health/diet/etc that Medicare wanted answered. Groan. The nurse, Cambria (yes, Cambria... like the town in California!) had to type all the answers into the computer. Took 30+ minutes. Anyway, Dr. Rachael said I was fine and healthy! Yeah!
The drive into Medford:

And my mountain when I got home:

I was watching Diners Drive-ins and Dives with Guy Fieri, and he went to this restaurant in Los Angeles... Little Jewel of New Orleans in Los Angeles Chinatown...

It is right down the street from Phillipes...
OMGOSH, all the food they make pushes the drool button. I have GOT to go there!

Dinner was quick and easy, an air fried sole Almondine. I slathered on a mixture of mayonnaise and Bacon seasoning

on a bun, added the sole, a slice of tomato. And yes, cheese sticks!


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

International Talk Like A Pirate Day

Ahoy, Matey! Did you know that today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day? It's a day just for fun, a day to let out the pirate in each of us. We like "just for fun" days and we know you do, too.
Practice up your "pirate-speak" in anticipation of this day. The conversation will be lively, and you don't want to be left behind. Today, everyone will be talking the talk, if not walking the walk. It is not a requirement to dress like a pirate today. Just talk like one.
