Good 56º smokey can't see my mountain (again) morning. The smoke hung low to the ground yesterday, as the day before, and we topped temperature wise at 101º. Friends up in Idaho said it go to 103º there. The smoke cover keeps the sun from coming through here as much.
This picture I took off the screen of my computer as I was playing a DVD sent to me by Andy Greenberg.
In 1979 Jerry and I and a Temple Station secretary, Beverly Petty, were on a game show called Three's A Crowd. The wives and secretaries were secreted in a back room while the husbands were asked questions.... about their secretary and wife. Then the secretaries came out and tried to come up with the same answers the husbands gave. Then the wives turn. The secretaries got more correct answers than the wives and the three of them split $1000.
Andy, who also had been on the show, had looked me up and found my phone and called me to confirm my address so he could send me the DVD of the show. It was filmed by a friend of his and he had it transferred to DVD.
One question was "If your husband's secretary seduced him and then came to work the next day, would he fire her or give her a raise?" All the husbands said "give her a raise" and so did the secretaries and so did two of the wives. I said "fire her, especially if I found out!" Anyway, it was fun and seeing this after all these years blew me away!

Yesterday was a very sad day for my friend Jennifer Murphy. Her dog Heaven, a Livestock Guardian Dog, had to be put to sleep. Heaven was a sweetheart and suffered with diabetes. Her quality of life was not good anymore.
Here is Jennifer with Heaven and Keeper in 2014^
And it was a year ago today that her cat Bridey passed away.
I am happy Jennifer has Mike with her to help the emotional pain. God Bless Heaven and Bridey.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF. Ciao.
