    We were there that night! Around 5-6 pm. Now THAT is funny. If we had only known?

    It was more of a descriptive review. The reviewer seemed to think it was well done but didn't really say anything evaluative.

For some reason, I found that juxtaposition entertaining. As you know, I am easily amused. The second is Chris' $20 picture of NYC at night. $20 because that's how much they charged to let people go up to the building's viewpoint. He asked me if I wanted to come along and I said something like "I'm not paying $40 to those people for one $%($%^U# lousy aerial view picture", so I stayed on the ground and watched the ice skaters at Rockefeller Plaza. It IS a good picture, though. The third is a picture of an especially gorgeous bowl at the Museum of Art and Design.

    Lisa, those are furry kitty puddles! Very sweet. I had to give up my kitties after DH became allergic. Now three golden retrievers let us live with them...

    Those dolls by your monitor. Do they come to life after you go to bed?

    doggie

    VB-Do your doggies rule the house?

    In regards to the dolls by lisa's monitor, one of them is Ruby. She's famous for all the wrong reasons in Rubyland! Be warned, she's evil to the other girls who inhabit the house!!!

    I recall an incident where she pushed a new girl Edith (Lisa what are thier names again) down the stairs. Poor clara was in a rollerskate though

    Lisa, when will we see more tales from Rubyland?

    I try to hold off until after breakfast - hence my reaction on the link the photo thread. Had I been suitably fortified it would have been no problem.


    Salsa - GREAT photos.

    Of course, the goldens rule the house! This morning, for example, there would be no peace until I took Maeve and Fiona for "walky walks," which I was loathe to do since there was some black ice on the roads/side walks. Both behaved quite nicely, though, even though Fiona did insist on taking the leash in her mouth and walking me (this is the norm). The benefit is that they are now sleeping, pooped. They'll perk up when it's time for their lunch.

    Dogmama (if you read this), I know, I know. I was reading "The Loved Dog" and trying to incorporate some of Tamar's teachings!!

    biciclista... what kind of clouds are those?!!! do you see those often? holy cow... they look like funnel clouds to me. If we saw those in Chicago, we'd all be running I have honestly never seen clouds like that here in Chicago... pretty cool
