Wow. It's May. Van Brunt Street has finally greened and after a little rain I think the pollen is almost washed away. Alexis and I are running the Brooklyn 1/2 Marathon on Saturday- please cross your fingers for us that the scheduled rain will hit after 12pm.

Two things that should be celebrated:

  1. April 29 was the second anniversary of Lexacor's Red Hook Wedding Parade! Sadly, Pioneer Bar is no more, however a new establishment is moving in soon. I hope that the Brooklyn Ice House will live up to its predecessor. At the very least, I hope they open up the back patio.

  2. Irving has fur again. We are completely baffled. The cortizone cream that the vet gave us WORKED. I feel awful chasing him around the house a few times a week (and more grossed out than anything else about one of the areas that I have to put the cream) but the benefits outweigh the negatives. All of his fur on his armpits, stomach and butt is growing back in. If this keeps going so well, we might actually be able to buy a new piece of furniture without the fear of him ruining it.

Hooray on both counts!

Would you be willing to share the name of the cream that you got from your vet? I have a similarly patchy-furred feline who might benefit, and I'd like to discuss it with my vet.
