Ava gets collared

Chances are pretty good that if my dear wife Karen and I left the Food Truck Battle with a gift for our cherished rescue mutt Ellie B, Elisabeth and George Three picked up a little something for their cherished rescue cat Ava. I think her new collar is fabulous.

Flower photo request for my dear wife

Walking from the Syracuse University quad to the Carrier Dome for Saturday’s college football game, a flower garden just a tad to the right of the stadium caught my dear wife Karen’s eye.
