CREEL and Gow………a Cabinet of Curiosities

CREEL & GOW..…..a Cabinet of Curiosities……..on Manhattan’s East Side.  A store where everything comes from Mother Nature.  The shop is located in the former stables of Grosvenor Atterbury’s town house.

DOG GONE IT! What a day!

Dogs are not our whole life…..they make our life whole.  They are our children [with fur].  They are so dog-gone cute.  My sister says “if you want the best seat in the house you have to move the dog”.  My mother always said…….
let sleeping dogs lie”.  My brother always said “my dog is bigger than your dog”.  Oh, really !!!

In Manhattan we only have 328,000 canines.  In queens there are 411,000.

I can hear a lot of kids saying……”please mom can we keep him”.

THE DOG DAZE OF SUMMER in the City

Each morning as I walk through Central Park….on the way to my Swim Club……I bump into a lot of friends.  Here are 50.  For me they are the “pause that refreshes”.

Miss Ginger……my newest friend…….she belongs to Deb Rao, the internationally famous “Make-up Artist”.

JOE……….also answers to “Mr. Shades”.

PEE WEE………….I guess that better than “Poo Poo”.

SNUGGLES…………..always makes me want to do just that !

TWINKS and her brother……….SPHYNX.  Say wah?

QUEENIE lives in my building….so she gets petted every day.  And sometimes a “comb-out”.

SIRIUS………not serious!  I guess he is named after the “dog Star”.
