Good 48º sunny clear morning. 
Another clear sunny warm day yesterday... and we topped at 85º. 

Yesterday I met Brian and family at their house and we drove to the Galice Resort Restaurant for a buffet brunch on the deck over-looking the Rogue River. Here is a smilebox of pictures I took....

Devils Tower is a laccolithic butte composed of igneous rock in the Bear Lodge Mountains in northeastern Wyoming. It rises dramatically 1,267 feet above the Belle Fourche River, standing 867 feet from summit to base. Devils Tower was the first declared United States National Monument, established on September 24, 1906, by President Theodore Roosevelt. The 1977 movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind used the formation as a plot element and as the location of its climactic scenes. Its release was the cause of a large increase in visitors and climbers to the monument.

I went to the doctor with some issues. I told him I dream that I am a tepee and then I dream that I am a pup tent. This happens often! I asked him what he thinks is wrong with me...

He smiled and said, "Well, you are just two tents."

One of our favorite restaurants was always Clearman's North Woods Inn at the corner of Huntington Drive and Rosemead in San Gabriel.
Clearman's Northwoods Inn history:
Here is a copycat of Clearman's famous cheese spread. THE BEST!!! Spread it on French or Sourdough bread and heat under the broiler.

1 pound butter or margarine, softened
3/4 pound finely grated cheddar cheese
3 oz grated Romano cheese
3 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons of lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Mix all ingredients in mixer until well blended. Refrigerate. When ready to use, spread on bread and broil in oven until melted and just toasty.

Dance Like a Chicken Day is observed each year on May 14th!  This is an entertaining day from start to finish!  Everyone has probably danced the “Chicken Dance” at least once in their lifetime.  This silly fun song is popular at wedding dances, Oktoberfest, and other celebrations. The song gets people of all ages up and moving on the dance floor.
Written in the 1950s by Werner Thomas, a Swiss accordionist, the Chicken Dance didn’t even make it to the United States until sometime in the 1970s. The Chicken Dance is associated with polkas or oom-pah-pah music. Originally written with the name Der Ententanz (The Duck Dance) it was rumored to have been written as a drinking song for Oktoberfest. The song’s name was later changed to Vogeltanz(The Bird Dance).
Upon arriving in America in the 1970s, the song had acquired choreography with repetitive beak, wing, and tail motions as well as the new name, The Chicken Dance.
