A Conversation Between Sisters Based on Today’s October Photo Challenge: TREAT
Tallulah: Hey, Sissy. Don’t turn around, but I think there’s a giant alligator behind us.
Harper Lee: He has some pretty big teeth doesn’t he, Bubba?
Tallulah: You don’t think he’s going to eat us, do you?
Harper Lee: He does kind of look like he’s ready for a tasty Golden treat.
Final Update on Nate: Speaking of a nice treat, Hurricane Nate came and went last night and left us with a glorious morning for our daily walk. The storm passed just to our east. The mayor lifted our 7 p.m. curfew less than two hours after it started. And, best of all, we never lost power. We had a bit of wind and rain, but nothing compared to what those in Nate’s direct path saw. Here’s hoping that this year’s hurricane season has had its last hurrah. This one has been brutal and Tallulah and I say enough is enough. We need more treats and fewer tricks from Mother Nature. Wishing you clear skies in the week to come!
My neighborhood grocery store is pretty special. It’s real name is Breaux Mart, but my humans call it The Bro. Although I’ve never been inside, I have spent quite a bit of time outside–either waiting with one of my humans while the other runs in to pick something up or strolling around the outside on one of my daily walks. I’ve always loved this mural on the downtown side of the building. (I know that in most cities people give directions as east, west, north, and south. But in New Orleans we say downtown, uptown, river side, and lake side . . . mostly because nothing’s quite straight around here.) The mural was painted by Max Bernardi. You can click here to read more about Ms. Bernardi and to see video of her discussing the swamp-scene mural.
We were thrilled to discover that Ms. Bernardi is painting another mural on the opposite (or uptown) side of The Bro. I’m so excited to share photos of this new work of art in progress. There are six sections running along the wall. The top photo was taken the first week in January and the bottom photo is from the first week in March.
Don’t you just love seeing the progress?
I almost feel as if I’m on the street with those turkeys.
I also feel as if I have to tell you that it was much cooler when we took pictures in January than it was the day we took them in March; but I still think I look pretty good comparing my profile to that horse’s profile.
These last two sections have a bit more to be done.
We’ll follow the progress on our walks to and from The Bro, and I’ll be sure to show you the finished product.
