Summer is a time for reruns. Accordingly I share last year’s July 4th post. This was a fun montage to create. I didn’t realize how many animals could be included in this red, white and blue themed photo montage. Wishing you a safe, happy holiday and keep those pets inside as most are afraid of the noisy fireworks.

Pride and Prejudice June 26, 2022

It has been a long tough week for most of us. It is incomprehensible to lose a Constitutional right. The Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides a fundamental “right to privacy” that protects a pregnant woman’s liberty to choose whether to have an abortion. That all changed on Friday with the outrageous SCOTUS decision. Thought I would try to put a smile or two on faces out there by sharing some photos of my little collection of critters as they celebrate Pride without prejudice.

The photo above was taken before the beginning of time. It is of my father, my dear sister and me. My father is gone a very long time and our memories of him (while all good) are fuzzy. He was kind, funny and sang a little like Perry Como. He loved magic and playing pinochle. I even remember some of his card buddies names – Blind Jimmy and Fat Al are two that come to mind. The animal kingdom is dominated by female caregivers but there are exceptions. I have included some of those joint caregivers in today’s salute to fathers. Happy Father’s Day!

  Feathers are colorful. Feathers are pretty. Feathers are fun. Feathers can tickle. You can put a feather in your cap and you can feather your nest. Wikipedia has a lot to say about feathers. Enjoy!

Some of the recent very hot NYC days got me thinking about chillin’ with penguins. Enjoy some of my cool penguin photos that include a few I took while on our 2005 Antarctica trip of a lifetime. Stay cool.

 Grizzly bears are back at the Central Park Zoo. Come visit and welcome Amber, Luna and Treena along with the rest of our amazing collection. You still need a timed ticket even if you are a member. The weather is great and the animals are active.

 The Folk Art Museum is a wonderful place to visit (and it is free.) Folk art is self taught art and is rooted in traditions that come from community and culture. Examples include: weather vanes, old store signs and carved figures, itinerant portraits, carousel horses, fire buckets, painted game boards, cast iron doorstops and many other similar lines of highly collectible “whimsical” antiques. For six decades, the American Folk Art Museum’s exhibition program has inspired critical acclaim and public interest while breaking new scholarly ground. This current installation in the Audrey B. Heckler Gallery highlights key exhibitions in the history of the Museum and features a selection of beloved works of art and rarely seen documents from the Museum’s archives. I shared another wonderful exhibit from this space last summer called Blowin’ in the Wind.

 I want to wish a very Happy Mother’s Day to all to all of the mothers, caregivers, nurturers, pamperers, surrogates and loving coddlers out there regardless of how you celebrate the day. Our mother, Lillian Wolfe, is long gone, but her advice, warnings and general ‘Lili-isms’ live on in our daily lives.  She taught us to laugh at life, to think, to question authority, to march, to protest – to fight the good fight. She also gave  us our moral compass – one glance from Lillian told us instantly whether our behavior was acceptable or not – and I got a lot of glances.  My sister Terry and I remember many childhood events differently but we both agree that our mother was a pistol. Here’s to Lillian Wolfe – she formed and informed what we are today.

Took a trip to the Bronx Zoo about a month ago to meet up with some good friends and their kids. It was a fun visit but we did not get to see much of the zoo (again, kids). Enjoy the photos and happy May to one and all.
