Last night was fanned by cool breezes and decorated with the dense stars of the milky way, making it more pleasant than recent nights. I suppose Sluggo might have enjoyed the change, as well, but my inability to sit in the same spot for more than a few minutes made it unnecessary to test his mood. Instead, he got lots of nap time. I do hope he shows his gratitude by behaving himself for a while.
I will now flatten myself for a few hours, in preparation for the trauma to take place at four o'clock this afternoon. The ice is ready.
