Pearl-s of Wisdom

Mama broke her toe the other day... the little pinkie one, the one that should really be the least important one yet when it's large and purple it's really the most important one. I too have stubbed my fuzzy toes before and remember that yes it does hurt but that's no reason why we shouldn't go for a walkie. I always forget about the pain after a few blocks, so reason goes that she should too.

Something we've never noticed before near the South Park Blocks...

Come in a little closer...

Yes, it is a salmon - on the corner of Salmon Street (these humans think they're SO FUNNY sometimes)...

Back in the Pearl, this is another little cove that I visit on occasion but don't think I've ever been photographed in. It used to be the entrance to an art gallery, now there is some art store there. But it's really a lovely little oasis...

The water isn't really drinkable though, and since it's not moving it's not that interesting either.

Ha! There's mama in the reflection. I'd know that red hair anywhere!

These are pieces of the original freeway that ran through the Pearl District before it was the Pearl District. Apparently most of what we walk in and where we live used to be industrial areas. But these are cool and help keep some of the original character of the neighborhood.

Notice the wild animals in the column and the wild animal comin' at ya... Woo! Hoo!

Sorry about your Mom's toe. We are glad that she is able to walk with you. No high heels for awhile!

Poor mama! The humans don't notice how important all their toes are until one has a boo boo. I think you will need to limit your walkies for a bit.

Cool fish.

Hope your moms toe is on the mend soon, don't you get treading on it!! I love that fish in the wall. That's the kinder thing mom would put on the house wall if she could.
See Yea George xxx

Sorry to hear about your Mom's toe, Bogart! Hope it's getting better now!

The salmon thing is rather funny, I have to admit...especially when the salmon is in between the walls! Heh!

Happy Belated Independence Day!

I love the salmon crashing through the building! Very cool!

Hope Mom's toe heals soon. I've broken my little toe no less than three times over the years and there's nothing little about the pain!
