Rain/Wind ~ Wicked Good Clogs ~ Odd Tattoos ~ Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole ~ News Post ~ National Zoo Day

Good 47ยบ dark cloudy morning. 
Boy, the rain came down hard at times yesterday, but never lasted long and the wind got wild! Just howling! On and off, on and off. At times the rain was blowing sideways! Ahhhhh..... washed windows! Power outages in several areas.  We ended with 1/4" of rain, but the wind blew stuff everywhere! Today there is a 30% chance of rain. All that rain we were supposed to get never happened! This is how the day looked all yesterday....


I buy LLBean's Wicked Good Clogs all the time. 

They asked me to write a review... Here it is..

I love these clogs so much. As soon as a pair starts wearing out I buy another. I can wear them all day and with the "outdoor" sole I can run outside if need be. They are the BEST!!! Warm and comfy. Withstands lots of wear. Even my cat likes to put his paws inside the clogs and nap!


More odd tattoos....

All of the flavors of a Bacon Cheeseburger in an easy one-pot casserole!

A news post on line.... OMG, what? 3 dead 20 killed?????? I do think they meant 20 injured, but obviously nobody checked this before posting. Duh...........

Later I cooked some tortellini, some carrots, and garlic cloves. Mixed that all with some chopped cabbage, bacon bits, and a dressing of mayonnaise and lemon juice. When I dished it up I flaked some canned salmon on top. It was ok, but not something I'd make again. 

Next was chair, wine, and TV .... Animal Cops Phoenix, NYPD Blue, Rookie Blue, and Chicago PD. 
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Sunday. Ciao.
