Actually, it's Sniffers Row. This one is Cerberus.

All bundled up

... for a trip to the neighborhood market. Hats, gloves, jackets.

And how cold was it?

Winter in San Diego. :-)

The Grandpa Bob on the Bus

These Boots

... are made for walking.

(We're not above the obvious joke here.)

A Ring Round the Tree

"And the Tigers were very, very angry, but still they would not let go of each other's tails. And they were so angry, that they ran round the tree, trying to eat each other up, and they ran faster and faster, till they were whirling round so fast that you couldn't see their legs at all.

And they still ran faster and faster and faster, till they all just melted away, and there was nothing left but a great big pool of melted butter (or "ghi," as it is called in India) round the foot of the tree. "

I'm sorry if the reference is offensive. I just saw the girls running around the table and thought of the tigers running so fast around the tree that they turned into butter. That and that they had pancakes for dinner that night with the melted butter, and "Little Black Sambo ate a Hundred and Sixty-nine, because he was so hungry."

The One with Lightning McQueen

In which we get a new car and pandemonium ensues.

Elaine: "Would you like something to read?"

Passenger: "Do you have anything light?"

Elaine: "How about this leaflet; Famous Jewish Sports Legends?"

I thought that I had blogged this back when it happened, but I guess I left it to a Twitter update and some photos. Melanie, Grandpa Bob and I went to a Men's Club event at Beth Am (where guys I play soccer with are on the Board and in the Men's Club) to meet and hear from Igor Olshansky. He is defensive end for the Chargers and is a Ukrainian-born Jew. We had a great time, Grandpa Bob especially. Melanie enjoyed the spectacle and the ice cream.

I bring this back up now as Mom just found this in the current issue of Hadassah Magazine, The Jewish Traveler: San Diego:

Igor Olshansky, 25, the only Soviet-born player in the National Football League, is a member of the San Diego Chargers’ defensive line.

A bit more local coverage is here. Brian Davis, pictured in the article, is the "Commissioner" of our Sunday soccer game.

Two Little Maids

Two little maids from school are we
Given these hats by Cousins Jon and Marcee
Back from their honeymoon in time to see
Two little maids from school

(With apologies to Gilbert. As for Sullivan, sing along here.)
