“I love zombies. If any monster could Riverdance, it would be zombies.” 

What a surprise! Today will be mostly cloudy, but it will be Cape Cod spring warm at 59°. I have a few errands, mostly Agway for dog and cat food and a few flowers for the front pots by the steps. I’m thinking pansies in honor of my father who always planted them in the front garden of our duplex. I’m thinking perky yellow flowers. I also need to stop at the hardware store for some blue paint and some heavy duty glue.

I always call my dogs’ paws their feet. The front two have elbows while the back two have knees. Nala uses her front feet for whacking me and Henry. She is, after all, a boxer. Henry jumps off his back feet into the air when he is excited, especially around dinner time. All four feet get off the ground.

I tend to graze. Most days I don’t feel like cooking. I’ll grab cheese and crackers or peanut butter and crackers or just crackers. The other day it was fig jam and crackers, a gourmet delight.

When I was a kid, I watched westerns. They were the popular shows. Jim Bowie was a fearless adventuring man. Bat Masterson had a cane and wore a derby. He was dapper. My favorites were Sugarfoot, Cheyenne and Maverick, but I am no longer a fan of westerns though I do watch The Lone Ranger every now and then for a bit of nostalgia.

I watched The Horror of Party Beach released in 1964. To say it is bad is a compliment. The monster has two legs. He is covered in what looks like palm leaves. His eyes don’t move except to jiggle. His head is ridiculous looking with fins, an open mouth and several teeth. The man inside sees through his neck. The first victim took the longest time to die. She was screaming the whole time. No one noticed. They were too busy dancing the Zombie Stomp on the beach practicing, it looked like, to be extras in The Walking Dead. The scientist smokes a pipe. I wonder if there are patches on the elbows of his jacket. Eulabell is his maid. I’ll stop here as I wouldn’t want to be a spoiler.

The dogs are sleeping beside me. The house is quiet. It feels like a good day.

    Hi Kat,

    Today the sun is shining and it’s a pleasant 65° outside. Later there’s a chance of severe thunderstorms when the day’s heating gets going. We can still use rain.

    I don’t remember “The Horror of Party Beach”. Thankfully I missed it. I was a fan of the TV western show with Richard Boone, “Have Gun Will Travel”. Paladin was so cool dressed in black. My mother had a friend in our old neighborhood in Dallas whose brother was Gene Barry. I met him when I was a kid when he came to visit his sister. Did you know that he was Jewish.

    This morning I ate my usual three donuts for breakfast. On Friday one of the managers brings donuts as a treat for the instructors. I never miss out on donuts because they are made from the most important food groups, fat, sugar, and chocolate. Today, nothing is working on my work computer. I’m sitting here on my iPad just wasting my company’s time. The IT department has locked down everything to prevent hackers so none of us can get are work done. 🙂

      Hi Bob,
      I figure most of us can use rain. We are expecting a storm from tomorrow early afternoon through the night. Today stayed around 59°. I did a few errands and then ordered groceries. I bought the pansies but won’t plant them until tomorrow.

      The Horror of Party Beach needs to be forgotten. I didn’t recognize a single actor, and no names were familiar. I agree Paladin looked great all black. I learned the meaning of paladin because of that show. Gene Barry was great in whatever show he starred in. He was quite a snappy dresser as Bat Masterson.

      I was craving a donut today but didn’t stop at Dunkin. I wanted to finish up and get home. I do love donuts. My father used to get them every Sunday after mass. He never got a great variety. He was a plain donut guy.

    It was a good day today, it’s past midnight now. Some planting, some cutting in the garden, nothing special but it was the first evening this year it was warm enough to sit ourside as long as I wanted. I just love it. Listening to the birds until they become silent, reading internet, listening to radio or podcasts and more. Tonight I listend to soccer on the radio. 1:1, a good result for my town’s club against our more famous neighbors. I’m tired now.

      Hi Birgit,
      That sounds like a wonderful day!!

      I did my errands, spent and inordinate amount of money on animal food, bought my pansies and a couple of basil plants. I went to the hardware store for paint and glue. I dropped off the backdoor screen and a window screen to the aluminum shop as they both need new screens. I had my groceries delivered. Tomorrow I’ll plant before the rain comes.

      Congrats on the soccer game!
