Pepe's first ride on the Staten Island Ferry. He was one happy monkee!
Pepe and I are both baseball fans. To celebrate our mutual birthdays I planned a trip to Staten Island to see the Staten Island Yankees play. Pepe was wearing his Yankees uniform -- Build a Bear Workshop has a complete array of monkey-sized sports uniforms -- and I had my Yankees shirt. Alas, no selfies of me in my navy blue.
Scooter the Holy Cow, had a black cape to join the festivity.
The game was really fun and it's always a treat when your team wins.

We rode the ferry back to Manhattan after the game. I've ridden the ferry many times, but the view never gets old. I hoped for a clear night and pictures of the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline. The skyline was totally hidden in fog and this was the best photograph I got of the Statue of Liberty. Initially I was disappointed, but I love the light behind the Lady in the Harbor. This phrase from "G'd Bless America" came into my mind the moment I saw the picture.
Somehow it is the middle of July. How this summer is flying by. Just ten days from now I will be traveling to Connecticut for the wedding of my childhood friend's daughter. I've had a long checklist and now I'm down to the final items. Dress has been altered, hair appointment is made, transportation is arranged. Next stop -- joy, laughter and a few tears of happiness. And yes, there will be pictures.
As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care!
