Today is National Ice Cream Day!

A moment of silence for my favorite Ben & Jerry's Wavy Gravy Ice Cream.

It was the perfect blend of creamy vanilla, thick ropes of caramel, fudge and delicious Brazil nuts.

'The ice scream originated and named after 60's hippie and clown icon Wavy Gravy aka Hugh Romney. Wavy mc'd all 3 Woodstocks and runs Camp Winnarainbow held near Laytonville, California, about 3 hours drive N of San Francisco.

The money Wavy would receive from the sales of the ice cream would go directly to his camp to help fund scholarships for homeless and under privileged children who lived in the Bay Area. The children were given the chance to enjoy a few weeks during the summer in the wilderness with kids their own age.'

I met Wavy once in the 90's during a book signing tour, sweet man.

If you loved Wavy Gravy Ice Cream, please join us in signing the Petition to resurrect it:

Rest In Peace Boss

I worked with George Steinbrenner for a couple of years in the 80s, he was always a stand up guy, never gave me any hassles because I did my job.

He saved the Yankees in the 70s, put his money where his mouth was, gave back to the community & demanded the best.

I hope no one ever sells the name Yankee Stadium, it is not "Coka Cola", "Pepsi stadium" "Tropicana" its YANKEE STADIUM.

I am grateful to George the name remained while he was alive.

Seattle 4th of July fireworks

Absolutely gorgeous, 70's partly sunny, got a sunburn at the beach last week, still putting aloe on my forehead because my skin is peeling, was dumb enough to forget my hat.

It drizzled max 15 minutes on the 4th, there were tables of food outdoors, grilling going on...nothing stopped, drizzle passed, I wore cotton...fireworks on the beach went off as scheduled...skeeters are out..

Some people, including weather folk, constantly whining...about how 'awful' it is around here when folks are passing out in the streets from the heat on the east coast. Frankly ridiculous. Sorry, but someone had to say it. Well, your freaking heatwave is right around the corner, hope YOU enjoy it cuz I wont be. Its my time to bitch now LOL!

I ♥ the Pacific NW!

You want heat, humidity...there's always the East Coast YO.

Im here for the weather.
