Spent most of the day at the International playing 21. Didn’t have the money to play Keno + my day was ruined when I looked up + saw we would have won $1100.00 on our ticket. Oh hell. Did win $100 + left with it. Dick saw Bentley today and he’s in excellent shape (Dick not Bentley) in fact better than last year). Dick sold the filter from our pool and when Armando came home he told him we were going to take down the pool. This after all the work Armando put in last night on the brick path!! All a joke but Armando had a bad moment. I see Humbug everywhere + hear him at the door. Can’t really stand being in the house right now. It will pass of course but oh Humbug I miss you. And so does Newman.
