Dog in a Chair

July 3rd, 2015 Posted in Uncategorized | No Comments »

I love that they put him on a chair, instead of having him lay down on the sidewalk. “Please, join us cute little dog.” “Why thank you. I’ll have … squirrel?”

Which reminds me, please click on this link of this incredibly attractive and appealing cop dancing. Seriously. Click on that link. DO IT!! I’ll wait. You’re welcome.

Recovering from Febreze

June 30th, 2015 Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment »

I sprayed Febreze in my livingroom, then lightly rubbed it into my rug and promptly had a severe allergic reaction that lasted over a week. I developed a horrible cough and didn’t sleep more than an hour or two a night. My eyes were red and swollen. It was pretty horrible, but I’m okay now, with a slight residual cough.

The carpet cleaners are on the way to pick up the rug (which is rolled up and in another room right now). The couch cleaners are coming tomorrow. After that I will need to launder anything that might have picked up any particles of the Febreze. And, as long as I’m at it I’m having the windows cleaned, just because I’m spending all this money to clean stuff I might as well do everything and have the place completely sparkling.

Here are a few more pictures from this year’s Make Music New York. This is the group I sang with. We sang the music of J.S. Bach and two of his sons, conducted by Thomas McCargar.

We all stood in a semi-circle on Cornelia Street (the Cornelia Street Cafe was sponsoring our sing). It was quite lovely. I apologize to the soprano next to me. Either she was flat or I was sharping the high notes, and I’m guessing it was me.

More From the Gay Pride Parade, New York City, 2015

Here are a few more shots I took at yesterday’s Gay Pride Parade. This guy was giving out free Trojan condoms, so he is dressed as … a Trojan warrior.

Dancing/twerking in the streets. I have never twerked. I’m going to get up and look in the mirror to see if I can even do it. But later. Right now I have a cat on me.

Anyone who wanted to could take a turn at performing. The crowd was very enthusiastic and generous. Whatever you did they screamed and applauded.

IN FACT, I just remembered. Three times I dropped what I was carrying and every time it happened, someone picked up what I had dropped and ran after me and gave it to me. I can’t tell you how touched I was by this. It’s a simple gesture, but in a time when common courtesy seems to have gone out the window, it was very much appreciated.

A pink porta-potty, for Christ’s sake. I can’t believe they even come in pink.

Sir Ian McKellen at the Gay Pride Parade 2015

June 28th, 2015 Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment »

I’ll be back tomorrow with more pictures, but I completely lucked out in the place I found to watch the Gay Pride Parade this year. I parked myself in the first open spot I found, which was off the main route, but happened to be right in front of McKellen’s ride. So when he was done he came back to where I was standing! SCORE.
