Have you ever seen a ghost? I did. Jerry and I were traveling up north and stopped to spend the night at a motel right close to railroad tracks in Pendleton Oregon. In the night I heard the train, opened my eyes and what looked like a man was standing there looking out the window towards the train...

I had a sense of deep loss that he was feeling. So strange. Seems as though someone had left him that really impacted his heart.

Never have seen a ghost since. Weird......

How about this.... remember Rice-A-Roni?

In 1958, Vince DeDomenico invented Rice-A-Roni by adding a dry chicken soup mix to rice and macaroni. It was introduced in 1958 in the Northwest United States and went nationwide four years later. Because of it's origins, it was called "The San Francisco Treat!" Originally named for it's combination of half rice and half pasta, Rice-A-Roni quickly became a staple in American families meals. Families across America were introduced to Rice-A-Roni though television ads featuring Sanfrancisco's cable cars and the famous "The San Francisco Treat" jingle.

1962 commercial:

This soup is soooooooooooo good, easy, and will have you coming back for more!

Option: Add 1 cup zucchini along with the chicken.
Option: Add 1 cup corn 5 minutes before taking off the heat.

Took a quick run into town to mail letters, pick up some cracked corn at Ace and pay my bill
got some NexGard (chewable flea/tick meds for Dude) at the vet's 
Had some fun conversations with Ace staff (Dorri and Bobby) and with Valerie at the vet's. They are all decorated at the vet's for Halloween already! 
OMGOSH. Then Valerie and I discussed that my daughter, a Halloween baby and my son a Valentine! Come to find out, Valerie is a Valentine baby too!

Last night dinner was Schwans Chicken Lo Mein, containing roasted chicken tenderloins, fire-roasted onions, green and red peppers, and tender noodles with a savory sauce of soy and sesame.... and a couple of their pork egg rolls...


All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.
