My mom recently bought some new tires at one of the big tire chains (with ”400 store locations throughout the Western United States”) and brought home this fabulous gift with purchase!
Lucky for me, mom didn’t want this and insisted that I take it. Mom knows what I like. The tire place I usually go to only offers free tire rotation. FREE BEEF, though?? Who thought of this promotion and WHY? Would this make you pick one tire chain over the other?
Summer Sausage, which is like the Christmas sweater of meats. Like the bad toupee of meats. Like the polyester of meats.
I CANNOT WAIT TO EAT THIS.

Or you might know her best from Hollywood Squares-
But did you know that Rose Marie has been performing since the age of three? She was well known as Baby Rose Marie in those days. I decided to check out some Baby Rose Marie clips on Youtube and wow! She was often compared to Sophie Tucker and actually, a lot of people accused Baby Rose Marie of being a 'midget'!
From an early age Rose Marie performed with the top stars of the day- Jimmy Durante, Milton Berle, WC Fields, and even Betty Boop- well, her voice performed with Betty Boop. Rose Marie was uncredited as the voice of Sally Swing.
I don't want to give away all the secrets, but if you're looking for a fun summer read about show biz then check out this book.
(While you're at it, why don't you check out Java's Journey for classic film facts and fun? I promise you'll love it!)

Heywood Wakefield Ashcraft, first spotted at the flea market almost two months ago and after a lot of sweating it out and phone tag it finally came home to live with me. I was kicking myself for not getting it the day I first saw it, but I'm really thankful that persistence paid off. Lesson learned!

These are just some shots from around the neighborhood where we stayed. The lovely buildings and scenery were just killing me!
As you probably already know, Sonny Bono (singer, actor, politician, Salton Sea champion) was once the mayor of Palm Springs.
This shop window was a sweet tribute.
And Sonny Bono wasn't the only bronze celebrity I spotted. No, I'm not talking about George Hamilton!
More pictures later...
Do you have any vacation plans this year?
