Good scattered cloudy 56º morning.
We still had a few clouds yesterday and we topped at 94º.
Yesterday I took Dude to our vet, Dr. Ron Dickey at the Rogue River Veterinary Hospital, for the staples in his leg to be removed from his surgery.
That went super well and he's almost back to normal with that rear leg. Dr. Ron is great, and so his his staff!!

Interesting about fortune cookies.........
A fortune cookie is a crisp cookie usually made from flour, sugar, vanilla, and sesame seed oil with a "fortune" wrapped inside. A "fortune" is a piece of paper with words of wisdom, an aphorism, or a vague prophecy. Not everyone believes a cookie can tell one's fortune, but, undoubtedly, it's always fun to open one of them!
