It is currently 52* and very foggy where I live. Gus and Jay-Jay went out and came right back in. Did the fog spook them? Something did, or maybe they just weren't ready to face the day.

Mike has been letting me sleep until I awaken on my own, which I appreciate. It helps the mood I'm in considerably not to be begged and nagged out of bed, and it represents a big concession on his part. He's making an effort to be more considerate. Yesterday, he gave me a new camphone for Christmas. I haven't figured it out yet, but will before the day is over, the camera part anyway. Benji has made some amazing pictures with his, so I'm expecting to have fun with it.

The reason I got the gift early is because his phone had to be replaced. (I think it got damaged somehow on Sunday.) "You're breaking up, Buddy," everybody told him, which annoyed him, but I thought it was a great metaphor for the transition he's in. "Nobody can hear me," he complained.

Either he's going to have to make new friends, or his old friends are going to have to curb their drinking around him. It will be interesting to watch how it all unfolds. More than one of them have mentioned a concern about their own habits. Maybe he will have some good influence on them. God still works in mysterious ways.
