Work Monday and Tuesday and get Wednesday off. Makes for a nice short week, or two miniweeks in one. Spike is up and about and back to normal again. They knock him out for his dental, and this time, it took a real long time for him to recoupe from it. He is good for another year now. We got rain all around us yesterday. It keeps going around us. I give up on the lawn. It's toast. They have a watering ban in place as well as a fireworks ban. Everything is extremely dry.
