A beautiful tribute to a beloved cat. I smiled too!

What a lovely thoughtful neighbor you have. TL, if lived close enough I would do the same for Shreddy. He was indeed a very special member of your family.

I thought it was very sweet of her too. It was special, for a special, sweet kitty.

TB always makes me smile. But today it was extra special. He installed a new patio floor over our old cracked concrete and refilled the hot tub. He watered my garden, took away some garbage and set up a chair for me. He then told me to come sit down, handed me an orange spritzer (club soda and OJ) and told me that he wants me to spend most of the summer out there either in the hot tub, playing with my tablet on the bench or seated at the table under the umbrella just enjoying myself.

My Daughter, son-in-law and their 3 children, gave me a Darth Vader Tee shirt for Father's Day. Not just the usual Lord Vader but on roller skates with boom box on his shoulder and bee-bopping through the Venice of the Southern California coast. Yes I am a die-hard Star Wars fan. My youngest grandson is celebrating his eighth birthday with a Star Wars themed party and we are ALL going to wear our Star Wars colors! Let the force be with you in abundance.

That made me smile! The image of that shirt will stay with me for awhile!

There should be pianos in more train stations. This really made me smile. I needed that.

During the Christmas holidays in Boston, South Station, the main train station has entertainment every noontime. I worked right across the street and was able to see most of the events.

I really enjoyed that too Taxi..what talent!

People are so dang weird though..almost all of them acted like they were stone cold deaf. It's not like he had a tip jar on top of the piano.
The lack of any sort of enthusiasm just gripes me. Loosen up people..you'll have more fun

It's actually a pretty neat program:

Play Me, I’m Yours | Street Pianos

they have 'em all over the globe.

There are a few downtown, but we haven't made it around to see if anyone is playing them. Hard enough to get Shrek to spend an hour at the Farmers Market.

it's worth noting too, not everyone is gonna be as amazing. The Henri guy is in a touring band, equally as awesome to listen to.
