I went to the park yesterday with Marlene, her dog Davey, and my schnauzer Abby. It was a hot Miami day but we sat under the shadow of a large tree which kept us cool. We had a picnic and talked as the dogs barked at every dog or small human that passed by. It … Continue reading Park Day
I just returned from a Memorial Day weekend trip to New York, which, like Miami, is vastly different from the New York I met six years ago (due to, in large part, gentrification).

The first few photos are pictures from the late 50s in Cuba, a time when a 10 year old's birthday called for a two-tiered cake😂 and children on the island could still go to Catholic school. The second part of the video features … Continue reading Vintage Video Album
