News From My Neighborhood

1) Krista tells me that the neighbor's cat is pregnant. I'm not surprised. I have often seen her hanging out on the corner with shady characters, smoking cigarettes.

2) The ice cream man is back. The tradition among children on our street is to chase after his van and try to get him to stop, especially when you don't have any money. Today I heard his music blaring and one of the Ukranian girls from next door shouted "LET'S CHASE HIM!"

3) You may recall that we "adopted" a cat. I neglected to update you by saying that she never returned after we fed her. Current theory: she was actually a he, and beat feet as soon as he figured out what was happening with the neighbor's cat.
