Good 53º scattered cloud cover along with some smoke morning.
Yesterday we were somewhat smoke free for awhile. That was nice. It did come in, but my mountain was still visible. Shortly after I took this the smoke moved in heavily! We topped at 101º.
The office of the Postmaster General, is older than both the United States Constitution and the United States Declaration of Independence. On this day in 1775, the U.S. postal system was established by the Second Continental Congress, with Benjamin Franklin as its first postmaster general. Franklin put in place the foundation for many aspects of today’s mail system. He made numerous improvements to the mail system, including setting up new, more efficient colonial routes and cutting delivery times in half. Franklin held the job until late in 1776, when he was sent to France as a diplomat.

Yesterday morning Jeremy from Just-In Time Appliances (Grants Pass https://www.justintimeappliance.com/ ) came and spent 2 hard working hours fixing my dishwasher.
There was a plugged up drain hose. He did a great job. I am so happy to have my dishwasher back up and running. It would have cost $300-$400 to replace it, and this repair cost was under $200!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Ciao.
