This photo was a candidate for our last theme day, stylish, but Audrey Hepburn edged it out! (If you missed that post, it's HERE.) Scooters are a very stylish way to get around, don't you agree? I've been toying with the idea of buying a Vespa for many years, but I have to find just the right vintage model with the right size engine. Until then, I'll dream and take pictures of the stylish scooters I see around town!

Today I'm featuring my stylish friend Jaime! She always looks gorgeous. I've never seen her not looking 100% coiffed. But not only is Jaime beautiful and chic, she's also immensely talented: she has mastered five musical instruments; she can cook or bake anything; she's incredibly worldly and well-traveled... and she can sew like a fiend. In fact, she made that skirt she's wearing! If you look closely you can see a smiley face painted on it. It's a cheeky reference to THIS scene in the popular TV series Sherlock. I also like her cute Kate Spade shoes (check out the heels!) and those groovy designer sunglasses! Looking beautiful as always, Jaime!

As for me, I think it's been a long time coming. To my many gay friends, some of whom I've known for as long as 30 years: CONGRATULATIONS! I am so happy that you finally, finally have the right to marry the one you love!
And readers, if you need an extra dose of happiness, please take a moment to visit my friend Shauna's blog HERE. Shauna lives in Dallas, Texas, and the minute she heard that gay marriage had been legalized she rushed to City Hall to document the many overjoyed couples formalizing their unions. Her photos are incredibly happy and emotional. I too had the same instinct to grab my camera bag and run to City Hall, but because our annual Hill Climb Fanfest (huge street party) was going on downtown, I figured it was a lost cause. GREAT pictures, Shauna!!! Love is love!

Is it already Friday again? The last couple of weeks have been a blur! Here's a cool building that's situated behind Wooglin's Deli, on the alley. I couldn't help but think it'd make a cool background for a portrait, until I noticed the word DRUGS spelled out in giant letters. Ha ha! I like it anyway, despite the socially unacceptable message. Anyway, the other side of the building is kind of cool too, for what it's worth.

I met my friend Jaime yesterday for coffee at Montague's, one of my favorite little restaurants. Of course you can't go to Montague's without having one of their delicious desserts, so I purposely skipped lunch so I could indulge in my favorite coconut cake! Mmmmm! And totally guilt-free, right? ;^)

Don't despair, thirsty Old North End dogs! This house on San Miguel Street between Nevada and Weber has some ice cold water waiting for you! I spoke to the homeowner, Vic, for a few minutes and he told me that his own dog passed away a couple of years ago, but he continues his daily summertime habit of freezing blocks of filtered water in a dog bowl and putting it outside for thirsty neighborhood pups. What a nice thing to do!
