Splish Splash, I was takin' a bath
Long about a Saturday night
A rub-a-dub, just relaxin' in the tub
(Artist: Kevin Spacey Lyrics, link)
.
.
Thinkin' everything was alright
Well, I stepped out the tub, put my feet on the floor,
I wrapped the towel around me and I
Opened the door, and then I
Splish, Splash! I jumped back in the bath.
Well how was I to know there was a party going on?

The bath for Adi
.
Well, Adi did have a bath yesterday. These pictures are from an earlier bath, but that is exactly what she did today.
.
She gets real frisky after her bath. If I let her out on the golf course she runs away a long way. This time she had to run around in the house, as I had her come inside after we toweled off.
.
When she was a puppy, a man found her and brought her back to us in his car. No telling where she had been. Rolling around in the grass to help dry off, I'm sure.
.
Rolling around with Adi
.
Adi didn't roll after her bath, but she did roll in a sand trap yesterday. Two sand traps, in fact, the first was the same one she did before.
.
We had to hurry out of the second one as a lone golfer wanted to hit. I think he just came to that hole to play a little for practice. The hole is a par three and we were pretty close to the green in the sand.

Bath routine for Mr. Excitement
.
Do you have a routine when you take a shower? Well I do (so does Adi).
  1. Wash my hair with bar soap, lathered in my hands and transferred up to my head. Excess lather goes on my upper body.
  2. Rinse, apply shampoo. Brush in vigorously with a medium bristled brush. Excess lather goes on my body, getting lower (if you know what I mean) than before with the bar soap.
  3. [Added] With the brush, scratch every part of my back that I can reach.
  4. With a soapy wash cloth, arms, head and ears, and so on, working down to the toes.
  5. Rinse my hair.
  6. Apply conditioner. Excess goes under arms and other places.
  7. Wash unmentionable parts very good with lather from bar soap.
  8. Rinse entirely.
  9. squeegee off the shower walls and floor. This helps prevent mildew.
  10. Dry off.

It all takes ten minutes. If I'm in a hurry, I can do it all in nine. I should have made that the top ten list, but maybe nine will do. Well, last night I forgot the # 3 back scratching part with the brush. That keeps the crusty brown patches from growing there.

Scrubbing my hair with the brush is the reason I haven't gone bald. I've done that since I before I was twenty. Tim is trying this and found that a little hair is growing back. The last time I checked with him it was.

Once in a while I get carried away with ideas for blog topics and lose my rhythm. This gets me out of the routine and who knows what I skip or have to do over again. I can't carry my little notebook into the shower. I should just get out and write my brilliant idea right then and there.

Last night on Dave Letterman, there two cute ladies from Oakdale, Louisiana. Both had touched a dead guy. More than one. One lady was a coroner's assistant, her sister-in-law was a registered nurse.

Some of the other parts of Dave's show were pretty raunchy.


Comments:
Your ancestors must have used the same hair washing routine. They had hair too. C.V. who is always well kept, doesn't seem the type to scrub his hair in the shower. How did he keep his hair??
 
He was the one who taught me this secret. [C.V. is my Dad, he's 96 years old and still has almost hair as I do.]

Karen Jr. and I agree that Adi is SUPER sweet!!!
 
It is way too early for you to be up blogging.
 
Adi is so cute! After I give my dog a bath he runs around the house like crazy!! It must be a dog thing!
 
I used to have a beagle... in the 70s. She was a great dog and loved to get a bath and swim in a lake or pool... whatever was available! But somehow she always managed yo get away as soon as ahe was dry to roll in the grass or dirt... Beagle smell came right back!
 
hey Jim, love your dog! I am an animal person, I love all animals but at my house, poodles rule the roost! I have 2! a beautiful miniature harlequin/phantom (refering to markings) who is 2 named Abby and a 5 year old toy parti named Curly! We love em' can't live w/o em! Give Adi a kiss for me!
