I finally got back into Liberty Humane Society to see my kitties

Tiger took a nap on my lap when I tried to take his photo.


Duchess of Earl…

It has been a while since I posted anything, let alone pictures of some of the fine animals at Liberty Humane Society.  In light of news that one of my favorite dogs has been adopted, tonight seems like a good night to share…

This is Big Star.  She was just adopted after being at the shelter since late March.  Her new name will be Duchess & she will be sharing a home with a boxer named Duke (& probably some people). 

Here are some of my other favorites from October.  Most of them have been adopted but there are plenty more who still need homes.  I promise.




Mr. Pryor


Snow Drop & her mom, Smoochie, came in very sick.  When I first took their photos a month ago, I thought for sure that they may not make it.  So, while this first photo may not be the best quality, it reminds me of the moment I saw them again, looking so much better. 




For more photos of adoptable cats & dogs in any area, please visit  If you are in the Jersey City area, please find Liberty Humane Society’s facebook page to view more photos.  Even if you cannot adopt, there are many great events & volunteer opportunities, as well as a donation wish list.  Don’t throw out your old blankets & towels, bring them to your shelter!

I am addicted to Bejeweled Blast


So, I have a million things I should be doing but I don’t feel well so rather than going to bed I keep trying to make it to the top of the Bejeweled Leader board.  That’s all.

By the way, this is Destro.  You can come meet him at Bark In The Park this Sunday at Liberty State Park in  Jersey City, NJ.  Bring your dog. All proceeds go to Liberty Humane Society and help furry guys like this.

If cats are more your thing, stop on by to meet this guy.  He is too young for adoption right now but he may just be the cutest kitten in the world… ever.

A New Jersey Hour

I dropped off my 1.8 lens at Canon Friday for repair.  Despite receiving the wrong directions when I clicked “directions to” from their website, I had a very nice drive.  I was able to see some of the farmland area where my dad grew up.  It was quite sad to see how little was still there and how much more was in the process of becoming a part of one of the next great out of business shopping meccas.  In addition to being able to put Big Papi’s top down, the E Street Radio signal was coming in clear… all the makings of a perfect day, especially when they played “Growin’ Up,” “My Hometown” and “The Last Carnival” back to back to back.  I will admit that I may have had some blurry eyes when I took these.




The first two are Route 33, the third is Periner?? Road.  They are all west of Freehold & south of Jamesburg.

An hour away (in distance, not necessarily my actual time), is the famous Pizzaland from “The Sopranos” opening sequence.  I may have stopped there once a few years ago but I think the sign is more famous than the pizza. 


Proceeding on Route 7 into Jersey City, there is this bridge that I captured in last week’s SAPCC blanketed by a sunset.  Recent discussion of how much photoshop is too much led me to wonder if I had tweaked the levels too much.  However, once I caught a glimpse of this bridge in my rear view, I think I need to adjust the colors to create an even more beautiful representation of what I saw. 


Curses on that brown eyesore sign.  Maybe I should burn it out.


I just loved the bold colors of this Rims, Tires & DVDS store.  It fit with the hard lines & big contrast of the city mouse pictures.
