All done with doggy daycare. All done with unseasonably warm weather. It hurts to look at the screen, but I have to in order to fight. I mean write. There was a downpour tonight in which I was soaked. It lasted six or seven minutes. All of my belongings were OK. The water that had threatened to fall on them after soaking through my backpack did not have enough time to carry out its plan. I carry a plastic grocery bag inside my backpack wherever I go. When it looks like rain, I wrap up my books and electronic devices inside the bag within the bag. This always works. In this sense it is like Santa Claus, who is said to begin preparing for the Christmas season on December 26. I have rarely, if ever, been as sleepy as I am now.
