This is heady stuff

Tonight I surrender my blog to the glory of the Babushka Dogs that are taking over Instagram.

Nothing I have to say is more important or will make you feel happier.

Enjoy!

Something’s rotten

With the world’s attention focused on Ebola — and rightly so — a common fungus is sweeping through our neighborhoods and befalling our jack-o’-lanterns.

And Halloween is over two weeks away!

We’ve got moldy pumpkins on the streets of the Upper West Side — do you?

These proud symbols of trick-or-treat are being eaten away before the kids have donned their costumes… collected their candy… or tossed their first cookie.

It isn’t right.  In fact, it’s…

TAKE THE CROWN.

TODAY!!

When we were young, my sister and I spent many a fun-filled afternoon playing “camping” with our Barbie dolls — and our brother’s GI Joe action figures — in our family’s formal living room.

(Other than Christmas, it was the best use of that room.)

The green carpet was obviously the grassy forest floor. We used Kleenex as sleeping bags. And Dr. Seuss books tilted open were the perfect tents. Plus, GI Joe had a jeep, so there were lots of four wheelin’ and other shenanigans.

Those were simpler times. Barbie wanted simpler things.

Today’s doll?

Embarrassing.

HAPPY NATIONAL DOG DAY!

In a perfect world, every dog would have a home and every home would have a dog.

 

 

All in the family

My friend Leah and I went to the US Open tennis tournament today hoping to see favorite players.

Me, Djokovic at the practice courts. Her, Verdasco in his early round match. We were both successful. (Leah even shook Verdasco’s hand.)

But we did.

They were chatting with friends and were curious about the matches that were still in progress.  And since both of us were intent on our cellphones, they asked for an update.

We ended up talking until we arrived at Penn Station.

I think that counts as yet another sports celebrity encounter — don’t you?

It’s a good thing I don’t distinguish between feet and hands, or this game might offend me.
