Heavenly Sun ~ Dude & Bruiser ~ Throw Back Thursday ~ Badge 714 ~ Picture of the Day ~ Cilantro and Lime Salmon ~ Famous Photo Again ~ Adam Colpack ~ Two Different Shoes Day

Good 41.7º (heee heee, 417!) sunny clear morning.
Yesterday the sun and the clear sky was heaven. We started off at 35º and by noon we hit 70º and we topped at 79º!! 
The warm sun felt sooooooooo good! Dude was a happy camper napping in the sun....
But, Bruiser stayed on the porch!

Good Throw Back Thursday.......
My sister Marion graduated from Woodrow Wilson High (El Sereno, CA) in 1954. Her class was The Adelphians.
I graduated from the same school in 1963 and our class was The Delphians! (I submitted that name because of my sis's class and it got the nod!)
Adelphian has a meaning of 'Gift of God' 
Delphian can refer to: Delphi, an ancient Greek sanctuary and home of a well-known oracle. Delphian, one of the ancient Greek dialects.

Badge 714

Dragnet used Joe Friday's police badge, with the numbers "714", as its title logo. It has been suggested that Jack Webb wanted badge 714 because he was a big fan of Babe Ruth, who slugged 714 home runs in his career; however, this is a myth. In My Name's Friday, the book-length history of Dragnet by TV commentator Michael J. Hayde, it was asserted that Friday originally wanted the badge number to be "777", tripling the lucky number 7, but decided instead to add the last two digits together to get "14", thus making the badge number "714".
This surprised me. I always thought, first of all because 714 is 417 backwards, and 417 is a California penal code section for "brandishing a firearm in a rude or threatening manner" and it's a radio code for our department, meaning "person with a gun",  that was the reason for 714!! Hmmmmm......... 
Picture of the Day....

Ok, Cinco de Mayo is a couple days away and here's a great salmon recipe to help celebrate this special day...
