P.P.S. I'm sure Paddington and The Calvinator would have fun together.

I'm really proud of the work we do at Legacy. I wouldn't work if I didn't think we were making a difference in the lives of people. Not everyone gets that opportunity. So...
I'm always happy to have the opportunity to show people around and tell our story.
On Thursday, Hakeem Olajuwon and his brother T.J. came to our Montrose location for a meeting. I gave him a tour but it turned into a paparazzi frenzy. I now know what it's like to be chased. Our employees were thrilled to see him but all the buzz interrupted my tour and I went from tour guide to handler.
This photo isn't of me but it is a photo that I snapped of Hakeem The Dream with some of my coworkers.

...including the armadillos. Seriously! I don't make up this stuff. Look at this armadillo.
It is the largest armadillo I've ever seen and you too can see it if you go to Goode's Armadillo Palace on Kirby Drive in Houston. And while you're there, get some barbecue at Goode Company. It's some of the best in town!

Saturday evening I had tickets to see Evita at Theatre Under The Stars. It's been awhile since I've seen the stage production so I was happy to go when it was suggested by Tall Todd. Before the show, we met a couple of friends at Batanga for adult beverages and tapas.
I parked closer to the theatre and walked over to the restaurant. On my way, I cut through Market Square and snapped these pics.
Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of meeting the legendary Betty Buckley. And then, at the end of April I met another legend...Bette Midler.
You'll recall me posting some photos of the evening that didn't include Bette. Even though the photo below was taken on April 29, 2014, I'm including it as my Pic Of The Day because I didn't receive it until Friday and this is my blog and I can make my own rules. :-)
I've posted the photo on my Facebook page and have received several comments...mostly about my shoes, the fact that we are coordinated and she hanging onto me. Isn't THAT what BFF do? Just askin'.
Hyde Park Gallery has just opened a show with works by Jim Seigler. I went to the opening on Thursday night and wasn't sure what to expect.
The collection of work is a variety of watercolor, acrylic, ceramic, ink, etc. and it expands several decades. In his remarks, the artist stated that every piece of art has a story. And guess what? On June 12, 2014, you can hear him speak. The gallery will have an artist talk on June 12.

I saw this display of pineapples at Whole Foods at it made start humming a show tune. Imagine that! And what show tune might that be? A Pineapple For You. If memory correctly serves me, it was a background song in the movie version of Cabaret. Most stage productions will include it.

There is construction going on on the former site of Café Adobe. It's directly across the street from St. Anne's. It's been bothering me because the crane hovers over Westheimer.

It started off like a normal day of the week. One thing was different and that was taking The Calvinator to doggy daycare for grooming and play time.
And then I received a phone call a bit after 3:00p. The Calvinator was receiving a bath and he collapsed. He was being rushed to the vet.
I arrived at the vet's office and he was soaking we and swaddled in a blanket. At point, while we were waiting to see the vet, I thought he had died.
Blood work was done and he received an ultrasound; fairly normal readings. Could it be something neurological? A stroke? Old age? We may never know.
By the time I got home and got him settled, I was spent! Yes, spent!
It was either going to be a Martini or a foot long Coney, tater tots, and Cherry Limeade.
What did I do?
On Tuesday morning I got this wild idea in my head that I wanted to go to spin class. So at lunch I started gathering my things and I couldn't find my shoes. I had just about talked myself out of going when I found them.
I showed up for the 5:30p rhythm ride class with Kelli but it was Brice. Fifteen minutes into class I was sweating like a whore in church. I didn't think I was going to be able to finish class but I did. And then the leg cramps started.
