Fact: Rainbows at night exist. These rainbows are called moonbows, and they only occur when there is a source of water near a full moon. If the moon is in any other phase, the light will not be enough to cause a moonbow.
Happy Cinco de Mayo to all of you and may you have a delightful Mexican meal sometime during this fine day. I learned a new Mexican word this morning.
We got an email late in the day that said my surgeon had an opening at 8:00 AM today. He is located in Long Beach, so we had to get up at 5:00 AM and be on the freeway at 7:00 AM or be in traffic for hours. We made it to his office in 30 minutes.
The procedure was fairly simple but it takes about 40 minutes for them to do a detailed biopsy to make sure what they cut out got everything. We were out of his office by around 9:30 AM.
We stopped by Home Depot on the way home to get three new propane tanks so we wouldn’t run out tonight while we were making dinner.
Scout wanted some advice as he is going on a trip to Oregon shortly. He was devastated when we said we might drive!
At 11:30 AM, we headed to the Santa Ana Elks for our weekly Girls Night Out with the gang. We had a load of fun just talking about stuff.
Maria and Irene joined us this fine day, and Maria got to meet some more of the crazies!
After two weeks in Idaho, Sydney was back in town; we missed her a lot! We did ask her, “If Idaho had its own space program, what would be the name of the first satellite?” Sydney looked puzzled so I told her, “Spudnik 1”.
I retrieved this picture from my gardening website so show Gary tonight. He is our contractor for the new garden at Casa Valencia. The new garden will be larger than this one by a factor of at least 50%. I used by drawing, and we will have 250 linear feet of 21-24″ high block wall.
We made beef ribs this evening, and they turned out pretty good! Thank you Albertson’s Market!! We called Chuck our bartender and asked how to cook them. He told us and we couldn’t believe it but, it worked. We baked it in a little pan filled with water after living a rub stay on it overnight. It was fall off the bone good.
Mary reminded me, “The way to the man’s heart is through his stomach. The trick is to use a long knife so that the ribs don’t get in the way.”
Mary reviews the estimate, and we are ready to go. We have Gary a downpayment so that he can get the materials before the price goes up again.
After cleaning up everything, we crashed. I introduced Mary to “Gilmore Girls,” and she binge-watched until midnight.
