On Bowling and Critters

Bowlmore, University Place
Photo by myself, from the lanes at Bowlmor, a bowling alley on University Place.

There are bowling alleys in the city, but you have to know where to find them. I went to one last week for a friend's birthday party, which was fun.


Meanwhile, Mark and I have been homebodies with Rupert, the puppy we brought home last week.

Rupert and the cat have been getting along surprisingly well. There's been some hissing and some wary looks, but generally it's been fine. The two share a love for napping and not doing much. Sometimes they will sleep on the sofa, next to each other.

Rupert is lucky to have Mark as a devoted Dad. Already, Rupert understands the idea of wee wee pads, and the words 'no', 'sit', 'come', 'good boy' and his own name. There have been some accidents, of course - but much fewer than I'd expected.

All those episodes of The Dog Whisperer have paid off!

It's amazing how quickly animals do accept a new member of the family, isn't it?

Rupert is like a real baby when he is sleeping - so cute.

I am useless at bowling. I enjoy it but I am just hopeless.

Welcome Dragonfly, thanks for stopping by.

Your photo is classic and BLUE, lol. The Brooklyn Bridge is a very photogenic landmark. The nicest thing to me is that you can walk, bike and drive across.

Yes, animals adjust so quickly compared to us two-legged folk. I admire their resilience.

I am pretty pathetic at bowling and all other precision-type games. I can't bear to post my bowling score from that night!

Gee whiz. Memories. Scars.

I got scars to prove that I used to set pins at a blowling alley. Got a quarter a game. Imagine that. And that was before automatic pin setters.

Rupert has such a tiny little head! How adorable is he!
Cool alley shot.

Just watched the video with my son. We both enjoyed Rupert, he's such a mellow pup.
