Old bloke in the park announced today that his 16-year-old dog, Rocky, was put down yesterday, after a long struggle with kidney disease. He was a nice dog, and you'd never have guessed his age or bad health, by the way he trotted around the park. Sad. Strange, too; there have been so many pet deaths in the last couple of weeks. I've been wondering if the moon extravaganza had anything to do with it. Only wore the hearing aid for a few hours. It itches. Attempted to watch VAN HELSING, for, I think, the third time. Dracula's Brides are pretty cool. but on the whole, I find it very dull and long.... fell asleep.
