Dragonball Z

What a dreary day

soggy leaves, soggy grass and nope, no lawn mowing today. I spent most of the day doing nothing. I'm getting good at doing this. its a change for me. usually, I always find something that needs to be done, and then, do it. But all this stress sure drains my energy. I've fell asleep everyday during the past week. "How can one fall asleep watching Dragonball Z?"
I had my pal Bob take me up to the gas station and got a whopping $2.00 worth of petrol. I'll probably use it on Monday when I clean up the yard. Hard to believe, October is just a few days away. Then Halloween, then gobble gobble.
time flys.
