10-3 ~ Clouds/Sun/Dude ~ Turkeys ~ Picture of the Day ~ Oregon Lighthouse ~ Autumn Pumpkin Dump Cake ~ Dinner and TV ~ National Coffee With A Cop Day

Good 50º scattered wispy cloudy morning.
10-3 code for stop transmitting. Or, shut up! LOL

Yesterday it was quite cloudy.....
and stayed that way until early afternoon.
Then the clouds came and went. It was no sun and then lots of sun. 

Dude was happy in the sun....

As for temps, by noon we were at 66º, and by 1pm we were at 75º.  No complaints here after Kristen telling me about the HOT humid weather they are having in So. Cal.! We topped at 80º.

A few of the young turkeys were out and about....

Picture of the Day.....
Ninja squirrel!

Interesting about an Oregon Lighthouse....

The Yaquina Head Light, also known early in its existence as the Cape Foulweather Lighthouse, is a lighthouse in the U.S. in the state of Oregon. It is located in Lincoln County, near the mouth of the Yaquina River near Newport at Yaquina Head. The tower stands 93 feet tall and is the tallest lighthouse in Oregon. Light from the tower shines 162 feet above the ocean and can be seen nineteen miles out to sea.
Early records of the Lighthouse Board refer to the lighthouse as being made in Paris in 1868; it was later shipped to Oregon. The Yaquina Head Light was first lit on August 20, 1873 and was automated over 90 years later in 1966.
It is now known as the oldest structure in Newport, OR. Also it is the only existing Oregon lighthouse that has living quarters attached and is the only historic wooden Oregon lighthouse still standing. In 1993, the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is a very popular tourists spot.

As part of its most recent history, the lighthouse has been used in several Hollywood movies. It was the setting for the 'Moesko Island Lighthouse' in the 2002 film "The Ring". Plus it appeared in the film, "Hysterical" (1983). Additionally in the 1977 TV series, "The Nancy Drew Mysteries", the lighthouse is here shown in the episode (The Mystery of Pirate's Cove).

On the first Wednesday in October, National Coffee with a Cop Day brings men and women in uniform together with their communities to connect over a cup of joe.
Inspired by the cliche about officers and their coffee shop donuts, National Coffee with a Cop Day encourages communities to sponsor an event that will bring citizens and those on patrol together. The opportunity for open dialogue, break down barriers and improve communication creates a valuable bridge to relationships in our communities.
While many cities and towns across the country hold Coffee with a Cop events throughout the year, the first Wednesday in October is National Coffee with a Cop Day. Plan one now and several later in the year! 
In 2016, the first National Coffee with a Cop Day took place across the nation. The idea was launched by the members of the Hawthorne Police Department in Hawthorne, California in 2011. They sought ways to interact with their community every day more successfully. As a result, they established a Coffee with a Cop events to do just that. Throughout the year they make meaningful connections, and the idea has spread across the country to all 50 states!
