Good 51º hazy cloudy morning.
Yesterday was so beautiful and clear. Ahhhhhhh............. doors and windows open for a change.
We topped at 95º.
Picture of the Day......Tufted Deer
This small species of deer is found in central China, and known for the tuft of dark hair on their foreheads. Funny, one would think they might be known for their huge Dracula fangs.
Interesting.... Fastest Human
Special day today, buddy/pal/friend and hubby of the awesome Alice, Patrick Reardon (LASD ret) is celebrating a milestone birthday today. Two lucky numbers, eh Pat? HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SPECIAL FRIEND! xoxo
.... and when Pat was a young Deputy!
Historically this date......
1918 – Women enlist in the United States Marine Corps for the first time. Opha Mae Johnson is the first woman to enlist. LOL, "BAMS" ! (for those of you who don't know... it stands for Broad Assed Marines! If that is the case then female deputies should be called "BADS" !!!)
1969 – The Apollo 11 astronauts are released from a three-week quarantine to enjoy aticker tape parade in New York, New York. That evening, at a state dinner in Los Angeles, California, they are awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by U.S. President Richard Nixon.
2004 – Hurricane Charley, a Category 4 storm, strikes Punta Gorda, Florida and devastates the surrounding area.
And births this date include...
1895 – Bert Lahr, American actor (d. 1967)
1930 – Don Ho, American singer and pianist (d. 2007)
...do you realize that if Ho Chi Minh had married Don Ho he would have been Ho Ho!
Later it was chair, wine, and TV. I watched a show on National Geographic Channel called Unlikely Animal Friends...
It was about humans and their unlikely animals pals. Fun to watch. It was on Sunday night here and should be on once a week. Check out your listings.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.
