They had a poetry event in conjunction with the baby girl's showing and her dad was invited to receipt some of his poetry. So we went to Philadelphia for the weekend and he got to recite his poetry at her showing.
A couple of her paintings from the show.
Later we went to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. They were quite beautiful. We saw quite a bit of wildlife: birds, geese, koi and a racoon.
We put Faux Paw down last week. She was nineteen. Her heart was still strong and she was alert but everything else was shutting down. Her back legs no longer worked and she couldn't even drag herself around. My fondest memory of her is when I was in rescue and adopters would come to the house. She'd sashay up to the car and escort them to the door.
This pic is back in the day when she was still a sweet young thing. She always reminded me of Pepe Le Pew's girlfriend.
And The Ugly
Hands down, New York traffic.
I took my allergy tests and got high marks on almost everything. HaHa. The only thing I tested for that I'm not allergic to is penicillin. Yes, I am allergic to dogs and cats AND trees, grass, weeds, dust and mold.
