Good 39º super foggy morning.
Happy Throw Back Thursday....
A bunch of years ago, probably 30. My Jerry on the far right front row. Good friend Rico Suavé second row on the far left. He just retired after 32 years with the department. He was a Law Enforcement Tech. Fourth from left front row is Bob Westphal. Some of the others I can't remember their names!! :o(
Yesterday the sun came out and warmed us up to 69º.
I had some shopping to do so I went to Costco.
I got some items for Brian. I like their organic chicken stock, so I buy several cases and cook boneless skinless chicken thighs in it for Dude.
Our old Costco was sold and this is the new one.... much larger. Fortunately they have almost the same layout of the interior as the old one so I could find things!!!
Historically this date.........
1960 – Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom issues an Order-in-Council, stating that she and her family would be known as the House of Windsor, and that her descendants will take the name "Mountbatten-Windsor".
1960 – The first eight brass star plaques are installed in the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

....at one time, sober, he was really good looking!
What You'll Need:
- 1 (8-ounce) package egg noodles
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup Ranch dressing
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 cup bacon bits
- 1 scallion, sliced
- Cook egg noodles according to package directions; drain and return to pot.
- Stir in butter and remaining ingredients. Serve immediately.
Here's another tasty idea! Substitute an 8-ounce package of thin spaghetti for the egg noodles, and add chopped cooked ham and steamed broccoli (and/or cauliflower, baby carrots, mushrooms, anything that floats your boat!) Saute the ham in a lightly greased skillet over medium-high heat to crisp it up and give it a smoky bacon-like flavor.
Later it was reruns for dinner, chair, wine, and TV. I watched the 48 Hours story of Natalie Wood and the investigation of her death. That happened in 1981 in a harbor of Catalina Island.
The captain of the boat owned by Robert Wagner and Natalie finally gave up information in regards to the loud fight between Wagner and Wood before it went to complete silence. She was found drowned in the ocean. The homicide investigator, Duane Rasure,
was a friend of Jerry's and mine. He was interviewed for this reopened investigation, which started in 2011. Duane passed away in 2014. Wagner is now 88 years old, still married to Jill St. John and live in Aspen.
He, apparently, is sticking with his original comments about Natalie trying to get in the dingy and slipped and fell and drowned.
The sunset last night was quite colorful....
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT. Ciao.
