This weekend was not even close to being typical.
For starters, Mike took the train down to NYC on Friday, and when I arrived home that evening via a very delayed train, it was just me and the girls. They had crunchies and treats. I had wine and leftover pasta.
I awoke on Saturday morning, showered and dressed, and fortified myself for the long day ahead with a big breakfast: warm tortillas, leftover black beans, roasted poblanos and potatoes, topped off with a fried egg and some hot sauce.
Then I picked up a Zipcar and headed down to New York myself.
Several hours later, I had picked up Mike, and we turned around and headed back to lil’ Rhody in the rain. But we weren’t alone.
His full name is Jack Kirby Hussein Dietsch, but we’re calling him Kirby for short. And he is amazing.
As you can see, he fits right in.
(More photos, and a couple of videos, are here; the full story is here. Many, many thanks to the folks from Brooklyn’s Empty Cages Collective for rescuing and taking such good care of this little guy and his littermates – not to mention for their efforts in helping so many other animals in need. They’re my heroes.)
Now back to the food! Now that this is all behind us, expect regular posting to resume. Or what passes for “regular” around these parts. And stay tuned for a very special giveaway!
