Scoundrels and Madness


On my car radio this morning there was this story..a blurb actually.

A young woman went out on a blind date with someone she met on the internet. After the date they went back to her apartment. She went into another room for something and when she came back her TV and her Dog was gone. In reporting this to the police she didn’t even know his last name.

I’d say she was lucky!!. What is going on out there????

We keep expecting monsters to look like monsters!!





I took this photo at the Brooklyn Museum some time ago

Yesterday afternoon this little guy was at the very tallest point in this tree out in front of my house. He was raising such a ruckus I went out into the street to see just who he was yelling at. I heard who, but I couldn’t see them. I was asking, ‘who are you talking to?’ My daughter thought we were both nuts!

City birds; they wait for you to move, they’re not afraid of us humans. He stayed up there carrying on long enough for me to go inside and grab my camera.

This morning as I got to work and was looking for parking there was a pair of birds crossing in the crosswalk. I swear! No exaggeration. I kept waiting for them the fly up, as in ‘ you are about to roll over me so let me scoot’.  But no, that did not happen. No, I didn’t squish them either. Weird!
