a whole lotta stuff


on monday
 toonman and i 
went to see a pulmonologist 
way 
uptown

the car 
stopped
 for a red light
i looked out 
at
 all the signs
the entrance to the elevated subway line
the mcdonalds arches
all those signs
and
way off in the distance
i spotted 
a water tower! 

DIY sort of


i cant remember
 if i told you
 that my friend melissa and i
went to ikea
a month ago

 i was looking
 for
replacement shelves
 for
the bathroom



the old one
 on the left
was
very old
 and
beginning
to
fall apart



i found those cool modern sleek shelves on the right
they're actually spice racks

it took some
 out of the box thinking
to get them hung

the walls are tiled
its not easy to find a spot
actually
level spots
within the grout area
to
hammer
in a nail
or
 screw

but
we did it
actually
 melissa did it
but
i
helped!

at the vet


why would i lead with an unfocused photo
well



i wanted to give you an idea 
of
 what it was like
 this past sunday 
at 
city vet 
as
 jack and i 
waited our turn

it was a busy day for dogs of all sizes


 after his check up 
jack
had a mani/pedi


no he didnt
but 
those two adorable techs
 clipped his nails for me

at home 
its a two person job too 
but
 jack definitely does not sit this still

focus fun


my neighbors 
have
 these fabulous stone planters
 along side
 their
 front steps


i wanted to get a macro shot of these plants


but 
the iphone isnt all that great about mid point focusing

i guess
 i need
 to 
start 
schlepping my camera 
again

flags



this past sunday 
was 
the puerto rican day parade
every where 
in 
the city
 you could see
 these flags 
being waved 
on cars
 in people's hands
 even
 on t-shirts

the big debate is
statehood
independence 
or 
remaining
 a protectorate of the usa

what would you choose?
