Patches is much better. She climbs the steps slowly and is somewhat unsteady in doing it but does not hesitate when told to go into Desperado. Last week, and for the prior couple of months, she didn't want to climb the stairs. I knew she must be suffering because she was no longer the Patches that I have known for eleven years. Not much better about peeing in her bed however; she did that again.

Yesterday morning was COLD. The forecast was for it to be 26° but we got another 21.7. This happened after we had completed half our usual walk but the longer I was out there the more painful my hands became. It was probably only 22-23 while we were doing the walk.

Is there a gasoline shortage? I don't find any News stories about there being any. However, when I went to the Love's Truck Stop here in Benson to get Desperado a fill up I found that they were out of regular and mid grade. That was bad News. The good News was that they were selling premium for the price of regular. That is the first time I have ever put premium in Desperado. I notice no difference it how it is running.

We almost did the entire distance on our morning walk but were getting wet and Erik started shaking it off. The midday walk yesterday was canceled because of rain. So far the total rainfall reported has been 0.31" with a 70 % chance of more during today.
