Cat Toys from Vivia (Happy Bruiser) ~ Slippers ~ Wine Glasses ~ YEA for Brady! ~ Vin Scully ~ Mel's Birdhouses ~ Patty Hickey McNaughton ~ Loren Otto ~ Taqueria Mexico w/ Nancy & David

Good 41º clear wispy cloudy morning.

I received a package from my Brooklyn friend, Vivia. In it were cat toys... for Bruiser! Balls on a string with bells and little mousies with bells..

Bruiser was totally interested. He looks calm here, but he jumped up and chased them all over the room... too fast for my camera!
I'm gonna get you, mouse!

THANKS Vivia!!!! MEOWWWWWWW from Bruiser!!!
I received some UPS packages ... I had ordered these slippers from LLBean..

And these "tipsy wine glasses" from Potpourri ... how fun are these!

YEA, the court judge overturned Patriot's QB Tom Brady's suspension yesterday morning. (BTW this photo is in my dining room!)
The US District Judge, Richard Berman criticized NFL Commissioner Rodger Godell for dispensing "his own brand of industrial justice". There was no proof! Is this how Godell is going to treat every single NFL player, with "suggested" wrongdoing? Proof dude, proof! NOT hearsay!!!

This I found interesting... I have always been a Dodger fan. Also a fan of Vin Scully and got to know his son.
This is Vin's 65th season, he's 87 years old. He's been with the Dodgers since 1950. This is the Dodgers 67th season. Now owned in part by Magic Johnson and Mark Walter, Stan Kasen, Peter Guber, Bobby Patton, and Todd Boehly. Walter O'Malley was part owner in 1950, and the Dodgers moved in 1958 to Los Angeles from Brooklyn.  O'Malley bought out the other partners in 1975. O'Malley died in 1979. His shared inherited by Peter O'Malley. In 1998 Fox Entertainment bought the Dodgers. In 2004 McCourt buys the Dodgers. In 2012 Guggenheim purchases the Dodgers after bankrupt proceedings.

My niece Melinda Plumbridge is an artist extraordinaire ... Here are some of her latest projects:
