A fellow named Dave writes about the above-depicted fellow:
Miss Heather -
My neighbors found this little guy in front of the 7-11 on Manhattan Ave late Saturday night alone and crying. Very friendly.
I recently emailed you about another cat entirely (turned out to be my neighbor’s cat who had escaped onto the fire escape). I did get some responses as a result of your post however, and have reached out to them to see if they might be interested in fostering. So far no luck. In any case, hoping to reunite a family or find a temporary home. If i didn’t already have two of my own fellas I would happily take this guy on myself.
as an aside – I was walking home along Manhattan Ave on Saturday night, and popped into the deli on the corner of Manhattan and Nassau. As I was inside, a bus screeched to a halt outside. The driver jumped out of the bus, ran into the deli and loudly asked the purveyor – “Hey, you got Mentos?”
If anyone knows to whom this fellow belongs— or would like to provide this fellow the forever home he richly deserves— please contact Dave via email at dmblenk (at) gmail (dot) com
Otherwise, thank you Dave for the Mentos anecdote. That made my day!

To preface: I am a very fortunate person. I have by any account a good life. I have a roof over my head and a husband who loves me. So much so he purchased me a new “smartphone” recently. He knows me well enough to know NOT to tell me how to use it. Thus when I noted I was getting WiFi notifications he offered to help me dismantled that bit of “intelligence”. I refused. Because the WiFi networks hereabouts are so darned interesting.
Once I showed him this corker which hails from Banker Street and Meserole Avenue, he understood.
The Grey Catsby can be found in Greenpoint. But as a rule, male genitalia/innuendo seems to be quite popular.
I cannot tell a lie: these made me erupt into peals of adolescent laughter.
Whereas this one struck me as being wishful thinking. Let’s face facts…
The I.T. and Internet world are ostensibly a man’s one— and if Dagobah exists it probably inhabits some hitherto undiscovered nook or cranny of Greenpoint. If I had to hazard a guess, I’d say the Nassau Avenue stop of the Crosstown Local. It’s been rather “ripe” lately.
But last— and hardly least— something for all you uber-geeks out there…
From (where else) Greenpoint!
Where Kayaks Probably Ain’t The Only Things Being Launched…
I had some trepidation about posting this. However, I reconsidered my stance when I thought about the MTA’s exhortation to its patrons:
If you see something, say something.
Well, Saturday night the Mister and I saw something. Now I’m saying something.
Our Saturday night started as many do: a lively debate about dinner. Such things happen between a vegetarian and recalcitrant carnivore. It took some time, but this matter was settled. Afterward the Mister wanted to visit the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory— because he needed a strawberry malt. Alas, we were six minutes too late: 9:06 p.m. I suggested we swing by the Manhattan Avenue Kayak Launch so as to view the aftermath of this insanity. He agreed. That’s when we saw the above bus. We found this curious.
We proceeded to the park proper. NOTE: I am using photos taken the next day so as to better illustrate my story. If I was psychic, I would have had my camera ready and pointed. Hell, if I was psychic I’d be playing the lotto as opposed to operating this site. But alas I am not. So here we go.
This is the Manhattan Avenue Kayak Launch.
This is fence which was damaged by an aspiring U-boat. WOW.
1. Indicates where a trio of park goers were sitting and sipping coolattas Saturday night.
2. Indicates where the Mister and I were standing.
The Coolatta sippers inquired as to why this fence was in a state of disrepair. I told them. A lively discussion ensued. Then something really weird happened.
The bus driver charged with said bus exited the Kayak Launch with a female companion. We were all perplexed by this. We saw neither hide nor hair of either of them. We said nothing.
Me (to the Mister): She’s eating Mentos. “The Fresh Maker”. I think he just got a blowjob.
The Mister (to me): I think you’re right.
The bus driver parted ways with his female companion and commenced his rounds. I later saw him on Manhattan Avenue. I was tempted to shout:
How was the blowjob?!?
But bus drivers— especially those of the B43— get enough shit already. Let’s just say I’ll be watching the Kayak Launch more closely now— and you should too. Lest you are wondering, gentle readers, this kind of thing is not unknown here. Case in point.
