Dixie is under the bed, trembling. I gave her a quarter of her sedative and it is just kicking in. I can't understand why people shoot fire crackers at New Year's Eve. Are they even legal ? I knew she was going to react to
the bang. I tried to take her out for her last relief, but she was so skittish that I was worried that she would wiggle out of her harness and bolt. I pocked her up and carried her in. She seemed OK with that. I had a great day celebrating my birthday. I couldn't
decide what I wanted to eat, so I cooked an Israeli dish that I had been wanting to make. I have a stash of middle eastern spices and I just happened to have what the recipe called for. As an extra treat,
I ate a York patty . Actually 2 York patties. But they were the mini's, so I guess that equaled maybe 3/4 of a regular sized one. I think this means
that I can eat one more mini before my birthday celebration is over. I'm going for it.
