6:15 p.m.  Still 56°F here in Rocklin…can't hang on the patio though, rainy, windy, not so cal…by any stretch of the imagination.  So here I am in the dining room.  Not the patio.  Signs of the exile.

Tonight?  White Lightning Texas Chili (chicken, great seasoning, cannellini beans) and some jammin' cornbread with jalapenos.  It'll be a good set up for tonight's airing of a new Jesse Stone mystery.  Good times…even in exile.  Wish you were here.
