They Let The Dogs Out

Today in New York would have been a very bad hair for the pampered pooches that descended on Pier 55 and MSG for the annual Westminister Dog Show. What a kick to see them rolled up, blown out and combed incessantly. Their silky tresses pranced around the ring, strutting their stuff. They looked incredible. The female handlers- not so much- they really need a fashion make-over. I think that puffed sleeves and short boxy jacket suits left when the 80's did. C'mon girls- catch up with your four-legged divas!

Not Everything Stays in Vegas

When a friend told me that she was going to Vegas for a conference, I jumped at the chance to meet her there. I had never been and it was too good to pass up. It was a quickie turnaround, and though I am not sure that anyone needs more than a couple of days there, I think that I might go back if it was just me and my sketchbook. For that, there are endless characters and casinos, expressions and exaltations, and bling, bling, bling, wherever you look.
