Finished walking 6 miles by 8:00 AM. Stretched until 8:20 AM. Census count at 8:40 AM. Got a legal mail from the Financial Litigation Program demanding payment of the restitution of $972K. I send an email to Thomas Johnson to inquire what we should do? Lunch was served at 10:00 AM. Luncheon menu: chicken sandwich, apple, spaghetti, and punch. Called Doris at 10:30 AM. She Sounded Better and she felt better after the shot. DR Jasmine Lee urged her not to walk too much during the heat wave, as it make her gasp for air and triggers her asthma. She took Bobo to the veterinarian and it cost her $90 to Diagnose her condition. It would cost $1K to x-ray her bloated stomach, she did not x-ray Bobo. Bobo is home now in the dog house. She inquired about the visitation request for Kain. I told her I would check with the counselor. I told her about my letter from FLP and I email Thomas Johnson.
