Good 55º dark cloudy morning.
Yesterday the clouds started coming in and it was quite windy... and no smoke!
By noon we were only at 70º! By 3pm we hit 80º and there were a few more clouds...
Dash was following Dude around the yard....
And Mr. Woodpecker was making more holes in my power pole!
Dash was like Bruiser... he napped by my feet under my desk! That is his chewy sitting on top of my slipper!
He also loves to run outside and chase the birds around the yard!

Interesting about LASD....
The History of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department began with its founding in 1850 as the first professional police force in the Los Angeles area.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has become the seventh largest law enforcement agency in the United States. Since 1996, it has also been the largest sheriff's department in the world.
Following the organization of the State of California into counties, the Sheriff's Department of Los Angeles County was formed in April, 1850. Elections for the office of Sheriff were held annually until 1882, when the term was increased to two years; in 1894 the term was increased to four years. The first Sheriff of Los Angeles County was George T. Burrill and his staff consisted of two Deputies.

Later about 6pm the winds had been blowing HARD and howling and then the rain started! YIPPPPPPEEEEEEE. We didn't get a lot, but I'm sure the .10 of an inch helped the fires subdue!! Actually when the rain started the electricity flickered on and off a couple times. Had me a tad worried. But, it came back on and no more problems.
Dash and Dude in their beds...... while I was watching TV.
Then Dash decided he wanted my lap...........

Humans have used chewing gum for over 5,000 years. They may have chewed it for enjoyment, to stave off hunger or to freshen their breath much like we do today. The sources used to make gum resulted in minty and sweet chewable globs of wax or sap resin that fulfilled that human urge to gnaw. It was unlikely they were capable of producing glossy, pink bubbles worthy of jealous pokes from siblings. However, waking up with it stuck in your hair was still a possibility.
