Rory and I were walking around the neighborhood yesterday, seeing if anything had changed while we were in Montauk, when I sneezed three times.
A friend was walking by and witnessed the sneeze.
“Are you sick?”
“No, I just sneezed. I always sneeze three times.”
“Sounded like a sick sneeze to me.”
“Oh, I doubt it.”
Well, this morning my throat is scratchy and tight. My head is achey.
That man has mad skillz.

Happy 15th Birthday, Rory Dog!
Now that you have vanquished the beaches at Montauk, let’s head to the mean streets of Manhattan that we call home.
Thanks, as always, for making the journey with me!

Remember The Blair Witch Project?
It was released way back in 1999. I unwisely saw the movie the night before a business trip to Europe.
It creeped me out so much, I didn’t sleep. At all. So I was one tired, grouchy airline passenger.
Just looking at that movie still brings it all back.
Actually, one glance at this guy makes me think of it, too.
Uncanny, isn’t it?
I doubt that he has seen Blair Witch, but he certainly has the natural acting chops to pull off the close-up.
(The tongue is a nice touch, too.)

I was walking down a street in my neighborhood when Rory flushed out a flock of pigeons.
As they flew up into the air, I thought…
“pigeons in flight”
which led to
“sky rockets in flight”
which led to
which led to
Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (the guys sing the song a coppola in Ron’s office…remember?)
which led to
which led to
I love lamp.
(And I think Brick would love this one.)

My niece dressed as Martha Stewart at her office for Halloween this year. An essential part of her costume?
I realized when she posted a pic that I hadn’t worn an apron in years and have only owned one in my entire life — an apron that I made in my home economics class in high school.
It looked much like the one at left, except mine was constructed out of blue denim.
It featured Snoopy and Woodstock and the dog bowl, too…and I think one of them was holding a sign — appliqued, you understand.
I got an ‘A’ for my sewing job…and I think I could probably still pull it off today.
Not sure my cooking skills would make the same grade.

During our morning walk in Central Park, Rory and I climb these stone steps every day..
Well, I climb them.
Rory uses the avoidance method.

I watched the cast of Modern Family play “Modern Family Feud’ on Jimmy Kimmel Live this morning.
(Not really all that live, but still.)
The Pritchetts — Mitchell, Jay and Claire — defeated the In-laws — Phil, Cameron and Gloria — but the sides sometimes forgot to be competitive and shared answers across the aisle.
I realized about 10 minutes into the game that it was the first time I have watched Family Feud in almost 15 years.
My dog Rory hated the bells and buzzer they use for “survey says!’ so I could never watch. But now my little old man is deaf and didn’t even notice.
Aww…my puppy dog.

This very bug scuttered across my foot today in Central Park.
Okay, maybe he’s a relative. But it looks just like him.
And where did I found the ‘police sketch’ of the insect in question?
On a bottle of beer.
Cicada Indigenous Ale, to be exact.
Funny how something that looks so bucolic on a bottle of brew…
Creeped the living the shit out of me at 7am.

I’ve been watching Golf Channel’s coverage of the Presidents Cup at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio.
Best seat in the house if you don’t have a ticket, right?
