A Walk in the Park

Self portrait, Prospect Park
Photo by myself in Prospect Park, Brooklyn.

On a recent cool day, Mark, Rupert and I took a stroll through the park in Brooklyn, near where we live. (The cat didn't join us, preferring the sofa cushion).

On weekends, the parks are typically filled with joggers, cyclists, couples and families.


The news on us is generally good.

One of my projects at the office is wrapping up and is turning out well - a three-bedroom renovation on the Upper West Side. The owners are moving in at the end of April, on schedule. (In my line of work, being on schedule and within budget is a miracle). I'm now helping out on a huge project on Fifth Avenue.

By the way, if you're looking to renovate, now is the time. Contractors are bidding fiercely on projects, significantly lowering their average per square foot costs.

Below, the most recent edition of the Rupert movies, that Mark whipped up. Enjoy!

Sweet. Thanks for sharing.

I love the way one of his ears flops down right near the end of the video. That is just so cute.

And nice to see a cameo role for the cat!!

Hello Kitty!

I've been meaning to pop over here for the last few days. On my walk to the subway each morning I pass through Fort Greene Park, where a guy plays with an adorable little Terrier who looks a bit like Rupert during leash-free time. Whenever I see them, I think of your blog and photos, and am inspired to look at the world with a mildly more artistic eye.

Thanks for brightening my days.
