Rain ~ Bracelet ~ Tallest Person ~ Creamy Peanut Butter Pie ~ Fitting Names 


Good 42º raining morning. Rain started in the night and so far we've gotten 1/2". Still coming down...

Yesterday morning and throughout the day it looked like this....



Dude and I made a trip into town for errands. Picked up packages at the post office... Since I don't carry handcuffs any more I ordered this bracelet...

Other police items are also sold there... clothing(shirts, ties, etc), jewelry, flags, blankets, etc.  www.thinbluelineshop.com
Teresa, post office clerk, saw my license plate (IM 417) and asked me what it meant. I explained the penal code section and the police radio code. Then I showed her my bracelet. She loved it!


This is interesting... the tallest person ever recorded...  8'11.1" !!! Sadly he died at 22 years of age.
