Wild Card/Thursday — 3.28.13

Strange night and morning at Casa Oliveria Wednesday and today sans Snoopy (who BTW was named after rapper Snoop Doggy Dog not Charlie Brown's Snoopy). Mrs. O & I caught ourselves several times stumbling over little rituals that we had done automatically as a result of having a dog. Getting up to let him out. Then, moments later, getting up to let him in. Being careful not to kick Snoop's water dish on the way out to the garage. Watching him sleep on the landing of our stairs. I didn't go get the mail last night. That'll come today. Any way, I have my wits about me somewhat more today than yesterday. It's nice to have something to keep me busy. Now for today's Wild Card …
