Odds n Ends

This odd house has a partner in Atlanta. They are both made of concrete block. I love them! They are placed on small lots in a funky, transitional neighborhood. You don't have to go far in America to see something unusual. That's one of the wonderful, amazing things about livin' in the USA.

Just a few days later and the kittens are doing the walkabout. They don't go far but they are definitely ready to explore. Still they sleep and eat most of the time and cry for each other when separated. They have exaggerated whiskers that make them look adorable. I'm having fun with them.

Three little kittens under the rosemary bush under the kitchen window! Mama was inside chillin' in the air conditioning. I thought there were only two-wishful thinking I suppose. They are all black with white on their faces and they have blue eyes. Their eyes opened sometime between this morning and this afternoon. I gave them their first pet of a gentle rub on the head. Oh, and check it out, one of them hissed at me. Brave, huh? More later.

New York City!

There is nothing like a trip to Gotham to relieve small town boredom. It's sensory immersion therapy. Do not skip the subway for live entertainment and thrills. I love the subway. I also like riding in cabs watching the endless march of humanity and buildings. I just love it! I'm also ready to come home to green grass, birds chirping and friendly neighbors. Also, my little town does not smell like urine. New York City has toilet issues. Really, ya'll...
