It was a rainy miserable day today. When I got up at 6am, it was 61 degrees and by 10am, it had dropped to 48 with cold rain. I gave Sparky his bath. He was not a happy camper. Even worse than the bath, he doesn't like getting dried off and it terrified of the hair dryer. I cover the bed with old mattress pads and beach towels so he can roll around in them. Now, he is clean, white and fluffy. I had to put his sweater on to go outside so it would keep the muddy rain water off his chest. I kept him on the road. He likes to sniff around the grass but I didn't want him getting all dirty.

After his bath, I made a large pot of turkey soup. My niece gave me a turkey thigh and drum stick when I went to dinner at her house.

I tried hanging my coo coo clock with the piece of wood I had bought to go between the studs but it was too thin and the weight of the clock pulled out the screw. I'll have to get a thicker board. What a chore it is to hang something in this place. I don't have a place where I can hang it from a stud.

It was so dark and gloomy that my outdoor lights stayed on. They are plugged into a light sensor that lights them up at dusk and turns them off at dawn.

I met Joan at Baker's Restaurant and she drove us to the concert at the nursing home near Rising Sun, MD. She is more familiar with the roads here. The concert went well but the room deadens the sound and it is harder to sing and be heard there.

When I got home, I had a bowl of my soup. It hit the spot on this rainy miserable night.
