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.)

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.

I shared a bedroom with my sister as child. She slept with her eyes open.
It was creepy.
Now my dog, who is almost 15 years old, has adopted thst same half-open, watchful stare while he snoozes.
Guess it runs in the family. Still freaks me out.

My neighborhood streets were so quiet this morning. Rory and I only saw two delivery men and another man walking his dog. The hustle and bustle of New York City?
Not on Labor Day.
So I noticed little things I normally miss.
This little guy guards the entrance to an apartment building near my post office. I’ve walked this path for five years, and this is the first time he has caught my eye.
(As a Kentucky native, I am especially embarrassed to admit this.)
My friend Dick sits on this stoop most afternoons. Rory and I stop by and catch up on the neighborhood gossip during our walks.
Apparently Tyler chatted with Dick yesterday, too.
And these blooms were hanging on a tree on my street.
A nice end to a lovely morning walk.

When I see a photo like this one, from this year’s British Open…
I can kinda imagine what the policeman at the precinct across the street from my apartment think when they see me, late at night, in my wild PJ’s walking Rory.
At the very least, it’s entertaining.

Once a card person, always a card person.
That’s why I love this whimsical line of greeting cards from Julie Ann Art on Etsy.
From big emotions plainly spoken…
…to a card I’d love to receive from my dog:
So simple, yes? And so spot on!
