Greetings and salutations, everyone; yes, once again it is I, your popular host, Mani the purebred border collie, here this evening to bring you some movies, and to talk about some other stuff. You may remember me from such posts as “Another Rain Movie”, among at least a few others.
Here I am in a characteristic pose.
You can see the hairs on my posterior fluttering in the breeze created by the swamp cooler.
Both I and the guy I live with have decided we’re going to spend the rest of the summer enjoying the swamp cooler. The best way is to do it while napping.
So today, the first thing that happened was I was attacked by an unleashed dog on my morning walk. The guy I live with said I defended myself admirably, and no one was hurt, but he got really angry. He doesn’t act on his anger, but I knew he was very upset. It’s against the law to walk a dog without a leash, but some people don’t care.
Then he had to go get blood drawn for his annual physical, next week. He said he was disappointed that the wall next to the chair he sat in had all these vampire cartoons, because he claims to do a pretty good imitation of Bela Lugosi. He’s had his blood drawn like a zillion times in the last three and a half years.
When he got home, he decided to plant out all the cactus, because the weather here has changed, rather dramatically.
I had my dinner, and then this happened.
The weather people were talking about quarter-sized hail, but fortunately by the time the storm came over the foothills, that part had weakened.
I had my dinner, we went on our evening walk, the guy I live with rode his bike downstairs, and then it started to thunder.
