Still Cloudy Here
Another marine layer this morning making SoCal “May Gray” again. I got an email from my older brother Ron saying that one of his neighbors found a baby rattlesnake under one of her flower pots. Ron said his landlady warned all of them to be careful out in their yards. He lives in a little Senior Complex in Paradise, CA. Hiker and I headed over to Wal-Mart so I could do my grocery shopping. Spent more money than normal but I bought some Frontline Plus for Hiker after so many people told me that the Hartz Ultraguard I put on her a little over a week ago was dangerous to use. After everyone told me that, I Googled Hartz Ultraguard and read all of the bad things about it so tossed the 2 bottles I had left. Thank goodness the first bottle I put on Hiker didn't seem to cause any problems for her. Frontline Plus costs a lot more, but to me, Hiker is worth the price. When we got home from shopping, I took hiker out for a 1.7 mile walk. The sun finally started peeking in and out around 11:30 am. It never did totally come out. I took Hiker for an afternoon walk around 1:30 pm. We went over to the San Francisquito Creek Trail and did 2 miles. Was still very cloudy when we came home. Hiker plopped down on the sofa and took a nap. Going to make fish and chips for dinner. I buy some really good beer battered code fillets over at Sam's Club. I don't deep fry them. I bake them in the oven but they tasted deep fried when they come out.
