Polka dots & mung beans

More & more the
backyard is beginning
to look a lot like
the Vegas strip with
casinos, hotels &
restaurants. The hustle-
bustle factor drives us
all. Our pedigree
Samoyeds—tutti i nostri
cani discendono da linee
di sangue prestigiose
determine the rotation
speed of a merry-go-
round in the one corner
that still has green in
it; in another, a small
band of sushi sous-chefs
watch a rerun of the
Giants-Redskins game. I
settle down in a comfort
zone somewhere amongst
the slot machines. The
waitress brings a tray
of truffle oil which I
drizzle over the spandex
that surrounds me. Kids
capture it on video,
will add the music later.
