lets see … 
in no specific order

 jack has asthma
 two trips to the vet
 in
 two days

 3 medications
 one
 of which
 is
 insanely expensive 
but 
will last 90 days
 AND 
my sister is giving me the name of pharmacy in canada 
where
 its an nth of the price

 then
 there was the computer insanity
 adobe flash player worked
 until it didnt

 i downloaded a new version
 five times 

each time
 it installed

 each time
 i got
 a
 the flash drive needs updating 
error message

 the wonderful techs worked on it
 deciding
 the whole computer needed replacing

 first thing wednesday morning
 they brought me a new one
 first
 my log in password wouldn't work
 then
 my email password wouldn't work
 turned out
 the email password was my duh 
i was entering one that was outdated
  and
 insisting it was right

 then 
the newer version of outlook
 decided to be obnoxious
 fixing the preferences 
did nothing

 after a few hours
 i considered
 either smashing the computer 
or
 slitting my wrists

 they gave me back the 'broken' one 
took the newer one back
 to see if they can work out its issues 


thats 
the ansonia 

took this with the iphone
edited it with snapseed

on the way into the office

looking at it soothes
me



what a day

seems like
feels like
 i never got away

re-adjusting
 to
waking 
at 
5:30 vs 7:30 or 8
 isnt
 easy

back at the office
i was asked
to be
the
 move coordinator
 actually
 its a good thing 
this way 
i won't be whining
 things are not being done
 my way
ummm
right 

 the person who asked me
 if i wanted the task
 knew just how to
 manipulate
 ummm
 get
 me to agree

october/november
 no longer
 seems
 so
 far away

 where are we moving?

 the world trade center
 43rd floor 




we'll be facing south
toward
the
 brooklyn bridge

i might even be able to see
 that
water tower
 from
my new office

road trip recap

i arrived in cincinnati on thursday
 to 
the most perfect 
spring temperatures 
sunshine
 blue skies
 blooming trees

 magical

 my friend mary
 always plans things for us to do

 we lunched at 
seasons 52 
she had dessert


 i didn't 

we visited our friend alice baltermann
alice is an extraordinary artist
she's in her mid 90s
 and
 her health hasn't been the best
 it was wonderful to spend time with her

we drove around a bit 
stopping in at a favorite shop
where i got someone a gift
next
picked up some thai take away 
had dinner 
talked about what we'd do on friday

friday was just as lovely as thursday

we went to check out a shop 
it had very unique clothing
all of which
were absurdly over-priced
but
adjacent
 to the parking area
 was 
an old building
a dead car truck graveyard




we also went to a real graveyard
cemetery
something we both like


attempted to go to an art exhibit
 but
 the gallery was 
closed

outside
i spotted 
 one of the wonderful painted pigs


saturday 
was really busy
we picked up our friend phil
drove to 
columbus, indiana
wandered a lovely little city
with some amazing architecture



i am going to share those photos over at
through my eyes

lunched outdoors under an umbrella
had ice cream at a unique old ice cream parlor


we got home in time to clean up 
head out to meet more friends
for dinner
in downtown cincy



it was a really fun and photo filled weekend

i hope you had a good weekend 
what did you do?

ruby

her name
 is
 ruby

 her person was with her 
waiting outside a coffee shop
 on
 broadway
 last sunday

 when i was heading to be beautified
 i stopped to pet her
 and
 we got into a conversation
then
 her husband
 came out 
he was not as pleasant
he was very loud and outspoken
 in a negative way

 anyway
 i got a few photos
 and 
went on my way


save them all

Best Friends Animal Society
77 New Jersey cats are
wishing for forever homes

How about a new best friend … or 77? That’s how many cats in Kenilworth, New Jersey (Union County) are desperately longing to find their forever homes. Could one of these adorable felines be in your future?
After the cats were rescued from a hoarding situation, Wendy Sweeny, a veterinarian in Clark, New Jersey took on the very difficult task of helping each kitty to find a loving home. All the cats are already spayed or neutered and up-to-date on shots, and Wendy is currently working around the clock to give each cat an exam.
So far, every cat has had a clean bill of health, and Wendy says, although many of them are shy, they are all desperate for a little love and affection. Founder, for example, is a two-year-old beautiful black male who wants nothing more than a rub on the head and a little playtime. Cara, a three-year-old female with gorgeous green eyes is timid at first, but when you start to pet her, she’ll roll over for more. Pancake and Flapjack are both eleven months old and love to curl up with one another. But they love curling up on a comfortable lap, too.
These are only a few of the cats who are anxiously waiting for their forever homes and a little one-on-one attention.
If you or anyone you know can offer one of these lovable cats a home, please contact Wendy Sweeny at wsweeney23@gmail.com or at 347-525-7340. She would be thrilled to help all the cats find the loving families they deserve.
Thank you for anything you can do to help these wonderful cats. Together, we can Save Them All®.

 where
 you look over to your left
 to see
 dumbo
 (down under the manhattan bridge overpass)

 through the buildings
 you can see 
the manhattan bridge

 far less famous
 but
 in many ways
 more attractive
