Rain ~ Incident Report ~ Trader Joe's ~ Hachi Movie ~ Rick Castro ~ Weird Shoes ~ Pizza


Good 49º POURING rain SUPER dark gloomy morning!


Yesterday was sunny and we warmed to 73º again. 


I made a trip into Medford to the Sheriff's Office to pick up a copy of the damage report to our mailboxes. 
After the Sheriff's Dept I went to Trader Joe's 
for some wine and a got a can of Guinness beer to cook my corned beef in for St. Paddy's day. The checker had on a green shirt. We talked about St. Paddy's Day and my maiden name of Laney (Irish) and she knew of the Laney River in Ireland! Then she told me she was having an Irish Car Bomb on St. Paddys. 


"This classic St. Patrick's Day drink is simply a shot glass filled with Irish cream and Irish whiskey, dropped into a glass of stout beer. The combination of the three will knock you off your feet!"



As for the police report... I stopped at Brian's office and he called the woman's insurance, Nationwide. Come to find out her insurance on that vehicle expired a year ago!!!!! Great. An insurance investigator for Nationwide called me and I am sending him a copy of the report. We'll see how this goes.



I watched the movie Hachi with Richard Gere about a college professor who finds and befriends a puppy. 

This movie was made in 2009. Never had seen it and now I know why. BORRRRRRING. The only good part was the dog.... an Akita. He was darling. The story line was so slow, no drama, and the end was too sad. Just FYI.

Ear Muff Day




Ear Muff Day celebrates a warm invention...the ear muff! People in cold climates can really appreciate this day. And, they are ever so thankful to the person who created the ear muff. If you live in Florida, you might not even know what an ear muff is.
Ear muffs keep your ears warm, and protect you from ear infections and earaches resulting from icy cold wind and weather. Manufacturers have responded to their popularity with a variety of designs and colors, making one to fit almost anyone's personality.
It is really easy to celebrate Ear Muff Day.... just wear your ear muffs!


Origin of "Ear Muff Day":
Big-eared Chester Greenwood is the father of the Earmuff. Greenwood patented the "Champion Ear Protector" on March 13, 1877. It later became known as "ear mufflers", and was eventually shortened to "earmuffs".
