waiting for inspiration

so the terrible storms
 didnt reach new york city
 i feel for those 
who did get hit
 i am not sorry it missed us

 the drizzle of saturday
 my glasses 
 wiper blades

 our harry is a very sensitive boy
 a scavenger 
with a fragile tummy 
we went 
 litter box cowpies
 what looked like chocolate syrup
 smelled like rotting sewage
 i do not exaggerate
 only a little

 after two days of this
 he and i went to the vet 
friday late afternoon

 he's a big boy
 11.75 lbs 
he is not easy to carry
he does gymnastics in the carrier
 he behaved nicely for dr mohr 
she asked for a sample 
of his poop
 to see
 what is causing
 his stinky poop distress 
he was nice enough to accommodate
 shortly after we got home 
saturday morning in the misty drizzle 
i walked the poop to the vet

sunday beautification at polished 
zoya's pixie dust in vespa on the fingernails
 toes are zoya neely

a visit to zabars for munchies
home to toonman and the cats
 i sat down at the computer
 trying to think of something to post about
i am still waiting for inspiration to hit
here's a photo i call
under the canopy


  1. Wow! Love your nails!
    So sorry to hear that Harry is having tummy trubbles, hope it clears up soon. He is a nice-sized young man and so handsome! Give him a few scratches for me, please-

  2. That rain shot is Steichen! Hope Harry destinks soon. Pixie dust! I love hanging out wit chew.

  3. I'm sorry to hear that Harry is having a problem and doesn't feel well. That's not good at all. For anyone! LOVE those nail colors!!! Positively LOVE them!! The Best!! xo Jeanne

  4. Beautiful image. I really like the dark, rainy, arty feel of it.

    Sorry about the stinky poop, sounds awful.

  5. Oh poor Harry, hope the vet makes him better. Loving your nails!

  6. Okay...have to admit...coulda done with less details about Harry while sitting here drinking my coffee. :-) but....L.O.V.E. this image...way to go, girl!!

  7. You need something to make your nails nice after carrying around cat poop.

  8. LOVE the nail color! It makes me miss my nails that I faithfully wore for 10 years. Poor kitty, hopefully Doc can figure it out and make the stinkies go away. Cool photo, definitely called for black and white.

  9. Ooooh the pixie dust is fab! And i do enjoy the under the canopy shot, very moody. I hope that Harry feels better very soon!

  10. I sure hope that Harry feels better soon.
    Poor baby.
    I love the green nail polish!

  11. Realy, really like the bw photo. And snazzy nails! Poor kitty....

  12. When he feels better, Harry can try his hand (paw) at this fun cat pastime.

  13. Dang. Link didn't work: http://youtu.be/KIePsbJSS04 Watch it and laugh.

  14. Excellent photo and love, love, love that polish!

  15. the weather is so mixed .. it seems we will have some snow again .--- good idea to colour the nails ..super fotos

  16. Daryl, so glad you were able to take your cat poop for a walk!
    That really is green nail polish! Does it glow in the dark! Seems to me it should..

  17. Poor Harry! Mister and Miss send wishes for quick recovery. (insert joke about walking poop & leashes here)
    Love love love that photo!!

  18. I wish you a better day with no more poop patrol required.

  19. Oh the things we'll do for our pets, right? I hope everything is okay with Harry!

  20. Oh my...walking with stinky poop in the rain. Makes going to the dentist tomorrow in the rain (driving) seem like a piece of cake!

    Hope Harry's tummy is better soon :)

  21. Although the finish is matte, the color on the right is nearly the same as my kitchen.

    I can be thankful that today I was just driving in the terrible rain and not walking (with anything!)


  22. If that isn't a contrast, I don't know what is! Stinky cat poop and beautiful pale green nail polish! ;-)

  23. Poor old Harry, hope he picks up soon. Did I tell you already that I think you and Aimee are kindred spirits!!

  24. Poor kitty! And poor you ... not a pleasant situation. Hope all is much better now.

  25. That's a great shot, Daryl!

    Having met the wonderful Harry, I am praying (yes, I am) that he will be OK. Let's hope it's nothing more than a passing bug of some sort.

  26. Oh, also meant to say that the fingernails on the right are magnificent! Love that color!

  27. Love those nail colors... I do my own with shellac by CND, speaking of which I need to re-do my nails its been a couple weeks...

  28. The nails look great, the photo is awesome and your cat is very accommodating...
