Dog training, Dead, and cleaning/turkey

Thursday was our first dog training class. Most helpful thing was a training collar that has cut down on his pulling on the leash quite a bit. We’re practicing his new commands every day (this week: sit, look, touch my hand, and leave it).

Friday I went out with Stuart to catch Phil Lesh (ex Grateful Dead) & Friends. Stuart is a big Phil Lesh fan, but I wanted to go because he had Chris Robinson from the Black Crowes on vocals, and I thought that’d be cool (I missed the Black Crowes tour where they had Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin on guitar). And it was a fun show – besides the first part of the second set being a bit slow. A bunch of great covers including the Beatles “Don’t Let Me Down” during the encore. Afterwards Jill joined us for a late dinner at Amphora.

We didn’t get back until 1, but then finished cleaning and vacuuming, as the carpet cleaners were scheduled to be here at 8AM. They were here by 8:30, and the place looks a lot better. I started thawing a turkey before we’d gone to bed, and cooked it (using a modification on the high heat method) during the day while Jill ran errands. We caught up on Desperate Housewives (3 episodes) and are now behind only on Lost (3 eps) and Alias (1 ep).
