We got to take Bear with us for our walk the other afternoon. It's lots of fun, especially when I go one direction and he goes the other and Mommy's stretched like a starfish in the middle! Anyhow, as we were rounding the corner near the Bleecker Street playground, we spied the ice cream truck!!! Yay!!!Bear and I split a serving of vanilla (divided into two cups) -- which was fine with Mommy since it cost $6.00!!! Ahhh, you gotta love New York, right?
Bear liked his, but he didn't LOVE it like I do! So I got to finish his up too. Good thing Asta wasn't with us or I'd probably not even get a good lick of my own! That girl LOVES her ice cream.
Now, here's what Mommy's screaming about today. She called Delta Airlines to make a reservation for me to ride on the plane with her when we all go to South Carolina with Asta and her Mommi and Daddi in September. Now mind you, Asta and I don't get our own seat. We're in black duffel bag carriers under the seat. We can't get out. We can't go for a walk or eat salted peanuts or watch a rerun of The Family Guy. No. We're in the same bag that if it was full of clothes would be traveling for free. We don't get frequent flyer points (although this will be my 20th flight at least) and we can't redeem points for our tickets. We get ZERO special service. And yet, the airlines (and we checked - Continental and USAir were the same price) have the nerve to charge us $100 EACH WAY for our flights. That's $200, up from $150 earlier this year due to "increases in fuel costs." We think this sucks! If you agree, please write to your favorite airline and protest as well. Just not fair.
On another walk through Chelsea, we passed a public school that had wonderful murals by the kids on the outside walls. As a writer, Mommy really loved this:
But I thought it also sounds like why we all like to write blogs. To connect with one another and to become superheroes, sports stars, mermaids, angels, grown-ups and best of all, crazy creatures!
To all my crazy creatures and their crazy people! I lift my ice cream cone in a toast to you!!!
