Good 51º high cloudy morning. "Chance" of showers today and tonight.
It was such a clear and sunny day all day yesterday.
No clouds and we warmed to 80º. The geese were sittin' on top of the barn for awhile...
Yesterday Mike came over and sharpened the blades on the riding lawnmower, mowed, and weed-eated along the creek....
And Dude kept and eye on him!
Still a lot more to do before Dave comes to brush-hog my pastures.
Picture of the Day.... Stoned Nudists On The Beach!
Here is some interesting information about toothbrushes I bet you didn't know....
The toothbrush as we know it today was not invented until 1938. However, early forms of the toothbrush have been in existence since 3000 BC. Ancient civilizations used a "chew stick," which was a thin twig with a frayed end. These 'chew sticks' were rubbed against the teeth.
The bristle toothbrush, similar to the type used today, was not invented until 1498 in China. The bristles were actually the stiff, coarse hairs taken from the back of a hog's neck and attached to handles made of bone or bamboo.
Boar bristles were used until 1938, when nylon bristles were introduced by Dupont de Nemours. The first nylon toothbrush was called Doctor West's Miracle Toothbrush. Later, Americans were influenced by the disciplined hygiene habits of soldiers from World War II. They became increasingly concerned with the practice of good oral hygiene and quickly adopted the nylon toothbrush.And.... the most popular color for toothbrushes is blue.

When working for UPS I delivered a package to his Mulholland Drive home. He drove out just as I arrived and waved to me. This was about 1980. His butler and one of his twin sons, Gunnar or Matthew (about 13 at the time)
answered the door. He also had about 15 dogs in his yard, all different, all friendly!
1940 – Toni Tennille, American singer
.... divorced the 'Captain' last year after 39 years of marriage!
Later I watched a Hallmark movie, while Bruiser napped on my lap....
"Eat Play Love" was the name of the movie. I was blown away when Lee Majors was in it. Almost didn't recognize him! He played Dr. Monroe, a veterinarian.
He was a favorite as Heath Barkley in Big Valley... and was married to Farrah Fawcett from 1973-1982
The sunset sky was beautiful....
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.
