perception



dental surgery
 on
thursday

spent
 friday and saturday
looking
like a chipmunk

sunday
 swollen distortion lessened

i am
so
 looking
forward
 to
 monday
 and
 my old face

penultimate fridaycation

periodontal surgery 
again
yesterday (thursday)
so 
i am making no plans for
today

like annie 


and the boys



i plan on chilling

the dome garden


the corner of 84 street at amsterdam avenue
is home to the community garden
picutred here

one of 600 city oases here in nyc
supported by 
neighborhood groups
 and 
the green thumb division 
of
 the parks department

they really are little gems

this one called the dome garden
(named for the dome project)
 defied death back in 1994
when it was to be razed 
in order
 to build 35 public housing units
it continues to thrive 
to bring 
visual and spiritual joy 
to the area



weekend reflection


truthfully 
i took that last weekend

this weekend
other than
 dinner out with a friend for her birthday
 i was a sloth

we did watch
batman vs superman
a terrible movie
i loved it

i love
 cheesy action movies
cant wait to see
suicide squad

fridaycation 12


this 
bucolic scene
 was shot 
from
 a very busy central park south:

handsom cabs aka horse and carriage rides
bike hawkers
pedicab hawkers
tour bus hawkers
all trying to lure the tourists 

behind the wall there lies the greenery of central park
the oasis in the middle of manhattan
1.31 miles give or take

a perfect place to spend a fridaycation
'cept i am not
alas
i have errands to do
beautification
and
a birthday dinner for a friend



dont worry it ends well

monday morning
all the kits ate their breakfasts
annie of course finished last
jack camped out at the water bowl
harry on the scratching pad

when i got home
toonman told me 
harry 
had spent the whole day on the pad 
hadnt wanted treats 

now thats 
very unusual

he had no interest in dinner
no interest in anything

i debated
 should we wait til friday when i could take him
 or 
should toonman take him on tuesday

toonman  
could take him either in the morning or late afternoon 
so tuesday morning with dr mohr it was

around 9:45
 dr mohr called my office
she explained
 harry had
a very
 very
severe
 allergic reaction
lesions in his ears, above his eye, on his nose, between his toes

oh my gawd

whats causing it?
turns out
its
 my
 fault

he has a very sensitive tummy
 he's been eating only science diet d/d for a year 
however
recently 
we were 'gifted' with some very good high end cat food
he didnt actually have any
but
 he does clean jack's and annie's bowls
AND
i had been putting some of the gravy from their food on his
i didnt want him to feel left out

dr mohr said
 licking the bowls was enough to do it

how guilty do i feel

EXTREMELY

now all of them will be on harry's food
