Captain’s Log 5,741
It’s winter here. There is snow less than an hour away. I know it seems weird, but it’s happening.
On the road to Julian, California
The newscasters and weather people are having a time with all of this. There was a reporter out at the train station today reporting that people are wearing hats and gloves. I kid you not. The main fodder for the report was hats and gloves. They interviewed a young man who was grateful for his hat. Okay…..and all righty then.
I sent some lemons to my online pal, Dangerspouse. He is a hilarious and irreverent goofball who loves to cook. When he told me he cannot get Meyer lemons on the east coast, I offered to send him a dozen from my tree. They arrived at his house yesterday. He was beyond thrilled. Here is a clip from his email.
You should see me right now. I’ve been running around the kitchen wringing my hands frantically and talking out loud 200 words per minute
I LOVE YOU!!
As another online pal said, “When life gives you lemons, make a messiah.” I think the lemons are Jesus and the three wise guys. Or maybe Jesus and two sheep and wise guy. Or maybe Siamese wise guys and Jesus and a shepherd. It’s hard to tell.
I wish I lived closer so Dangerspouse could make me a pie. He is a gurr-may cook, so I know the pie would be wonderful.
I am not a gurr-may anything, so I took my staff out for a nice holiday dinner last night. We went to a simple little Italian place near the park. The food was amazing and everybody had a wonderful time.
I gave everybody a $50 gift card from Trader Joe’s too. The previous director used to hand out cash bonuses, but only to certain people (I believe three of us). I think that’s very wrong and mean-spirited. I believe in treating everybody equally. So there.
I also believe that Santa should scare all children equally.
