Urban Fur: Jolson’s Revisited

As I stated previously, the Mister and I are taking a staycation. and No staycation would be complete without a visit to Jolson’s Fine Wines & Spirits. He, so as to acquire some grappa and raki. I, so as to visit my favorite brick shit house of a cat: Chupi.

Chupi the stare nys

He even got up close and personal for the camera!

Chupi up close and personal NYS

Is it just me— or does this handsome fellow sport more than a passing resemblance to Jaws? If Richard Kiel was a cat, anyway.

Here’s a profile shot.

This yawn shot came out rather hilarious. Eventually Chupi’s aide de camp, Bagheera, graced us with his presence.

Williamsburg Photo Du Jour: My Kind Of Hero

My Kind of Superhero nys

This hitherto unknown superhero was going about his grim business this afternoon in front of 101 Bedford Avenue. I have no reason as to why his special powers were required  and quite frankly I do not think I want to know. I am simply happy to know the Cesspool Man exists. Why not come up and see us in Greenpoint some time, my new favorite superhero? I can think of a few locations which need your special touch. Now if you do not mind I am off to invent and ignite the “shit signal”. I’ll leave it someone who is musically inclined to drum up a theme song…*

Props/Credits: go out to the Mister for spotting this gem. Ten years of being together has clearly educated him as to what makes the “missus”  happy. HINT: it ain’t flowers. I wonder if there is— dare I say— a Mrs. Cesspool Man or even a Cesspool Woman? Hands off folks: the latter sinecure, if vacant, is MINE.

*However, I have the following to recommend (a little ditty based off of the Candy Man”):

The Cesspool Man can because he mixes it with sludge and makes the world smell good…
