Wind/Clouds/Rain ~ Lori Roe Bouquet's Pictures ~ Picture of the Day ~ Interesting Places to Retire ~ Jim Harper ~ Dinner ~ Donald Duck Day

Good 51º drizzling morning. 
Yesterday we topped at 78º and then in the afternoon the temperature dropped to 72º and we had wild winds!!! The clouds started coming in darker and more serious! 

Brian called and at 3pm it was raining in Grants Pass, but it didn't start here until about 7:15. It rained on and off all night. We got about 1/2". 
While all this wind was kicking up a turkey Tom was sitting on a sled handle out by the downed tree...

Lori Roe Bouquet posted these photos on her FB page. She and Joe live on the Rogue River and she gets some great critter photos! Lori is Sales Manager at Roe Motors in Grants Pass...

National Donald Duck Day is observed annually on June 9th.  This day commemorates the birthday of the funny animal cartoon character, Donald Duck. Donald made his first screen debut on June 9, 1934, in The Wise Little Hen.
Donald Duck usually wears a sailor suit with a cap and a black or red bow tie and is most famous for his semi-intelligible speech along with his mischievous and irritable personality
Donald Duck has appeared in more films than any other Disney character.   Donald was also declared in 2002 by TV Guide as one of the 50 greatest cartoon characters of all times.
It was in Donald’s second appearance in Orphan’s Benefit that he was introduced to his comic friend, Mickey Mouse.  Donald’s girlfriend, Daisy Duck, along with his nephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, were introduced shortly after that. 
In addition to animation, Donald is also known for his appearance in comic books and newspaper comic strips.
One of Donald Duck’s famous sayings is “Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy.”
National Donald Duck Day first proclaimed by LA Mayor Tom Bradley in 1984 on Donald’s 50th birthday. The world’s most famous duck gave the city a silver statue of himself as a gift in memory of the big day. He also toured the country leading up to the big Disney birthday party bash.
