Happy New Year 2008

Finney was going nuts at the kitchen window so I got up to see what was bugging him and there was Buddy, sitting in the bedroom window, also terribly interested in something in the airshaft. This is such a city shot for me. Bricks, airshaft. So New York. If you scroll down you will see what got their attention …


Yeah. A pigeon. Like they haven’t seen pigeons 16 thousand billion trillion times before. Hello??

Happy New Year from me and my no-short-term-memory cats. (“What’s this? A pigeon you say? I think it’s the most captivating thing I have ever seen in this window EVER.” Two seconds later. “Oh my God! What’s that? A pigeon?? Could there be a more amazing creature in all the world? Can we invite him in??”)
