My performance at Archie's a few weeks ago went really well. Hopefully, next month's performance will be even better. Last week I watched a documentary/biography about Jerry Jeff Walker called OK Buckaroos. It was really great. I really liked the part where he asked someone in his hometown that traveled a lot how he gets out of there, and Jerry Jeff Walker went to Florida. When my dad was working at the Stuart airport he met Jerry Jeff Walker. He was going to go fishing with his buddies but didn't bring a swimsuit. So, my dad took Jerry Jeff Walker swimsuit shopping at West Marine. Thanks, Papa for the DVD. I really appreciate it. I now have 'Faithfully' by Journey in my piano song list. It is my second favorite Journey song. Number 1 is 'Separate Ways', a.k.a 'Worlds Apart'. I also have 'Piano Man' by Billy Joel, which is really good if you can split piano and harmonica on your keyboard.

I had a cold last week, so I didn't really do much. One of my friends told me about a game called Kerbal Space Program. You are able to build a spaceship or a spaceplane to go into space and to the moon. I am learning a new song on my piano called Rhapsody in Blue by George Gershwin. It's a very complicated song, filled with lots of sharps and flats. I am also learning A New World Symphony on my piano. It's a really sweet and relaxing song. The season premier of Doctor Who was really great. The new Doctor is pretty good at playing an over 2,000 year old Time Lord from a planet called Galifrey. My favorite part was when the dinosaur was roaming in London in 1869 all because it swallowed the TARDIS.
Yesterday, I gave my dog a bath so that he wouldn't stink. He can tolerate baths but I can tell he dislikes them. My mom is making homemade dog treats for Sam.
Here is the recipe for Mom's dog treats.
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup meat flavored liquid (chicken broth, beef broth, etc.)
1 tablespoon of oil (bacon grease works great)
2 cups of flour
Roll out dough very thinly on floured surface and cut with cookie cutters. Place on cookie sheet. Mix 1 egg in a separate bowl. Add a little broth or bacon grease to the egg wash for extra flavor. Brush the egg wash on the tops of the treats just before baking. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
