Photos from My Phone - October 2015

It's been a while since I've done a "Photos from My Phone" post; so, I thought I would tackle it today. 

First up is a photo from this past Saturday when I took Pippa to the Dog Wash. I know I've mentioned it before, but the pet shop in Five Points has a dog wash which is super convenient. I can give Pip a scrub and they will trim her nails while we are there and they clean up after us - all for $15. The folks who work at and run the shop are really nice and I like to support local businesses so I'm happy to be a repeat customer. The pet store is called "Goin' To The Dogs' and Cats" and it's located on Wellman in case you want to check it out. They have lots of fun things for pets of all shapes and sizes. 

The first Saturday of the month, I drug out my bins of Halloween decorations and inside I found such a treasure! I had completely forgotten that I bought two Halloween costumes for Pippa. One is a pumpkin (which I haven't put on her yet) and the second is a referee, also known as the "Rufferee". It's a ref's outfit and even has a yellow flag for penalties. It is hilarious and I'm so glad I got it because it has provided me with numerous laughs. This past Friday, Pip managed to get a hold of it and tore two holes in it, but I think I can sew them up and she can still wear it. 

Mild Green Mojo Chips by Late July - They are good!

A picture of a dead shrub which I had a heckuva time getting out of the ground. I had actually asked my male cousins to come by and help with it but when they didn't show up week after week, I decided to have another go at it. I guess I had enough stress or aggression to get that bad boy out of the ground. Persistence pays, my friends. 

This coral fungus was on a felled tree branch on the Alms House Trail on Monte Sano which I hiked on Labor Day. I thought the fungus was so pretty. It looked like it should be in the ocean, not on the side of a trail. 

Here we are, the 2015 Halloween Party Planning Committee. G is our leader. I wasn't told to make a scary face, but instead look half asleep. 

These "surprise" or "spider" lilies pop up in Five Points in late August and early September. I have always loved them and never had any in my own yard until this year. I had one come up in the flower bed in the back yard. 

I have the College Gameday Bobbleheads in my office and a few weeks ago I came in and found a note on my desk from the janitor. She was dusting and something bumped into Desmond and he fell and his arm broke. I was sad, but not devastated - this is a sign that I'm growing up. I was proud of the janitor for confessing that she was the one who broke the Desmond. She actually stopped by that afternoon before beginning her shift and asked if she could pay for the damages. I told her no, it wasn't a big deal and not to worry about it. One of the guys at work glued Des back together for me. Sadly, he will never have full use of his right arm again. 

That's it for this edition of "Photos from My Phone". Until next time.
