Nola, the Crazy Frengle

It was a hard post for me to write, as I had to go back in time and review the traumatic events in my life caused by Nola, the crazy Frengle; an awkward mixture of a Beagle and a French Bulldog. Enough said? She was crazy as a puppy, is still crazy now, and will probably be crazy forever. Just look at the photos and sympathize with us. Nonetheless, we love her endlessly and at least she is not boring. When we decided to get a dog, we were firmly set on going to a shelter and saving a life. But dummy me had to stroll into a pet store in the West Village and stumble upon a Frengle…

 

Seeing in Color

Life in Calm Colors…

A close friend of mine, an experienced blogger and a talented DIY woman, has always been fascinated by people who have “natural abilities…” of any kind. A “natural eye” for photography, “natural aptitude” for painting, “natural ability” to fly a kite? (kidding?…maybe…not). During one of our extensive phone conversations, in which I was consulting her on the art of blogging, we were discussing just that topic and I jokingly mentioned that I “naturally” see certain things in color.
