It's A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood...


Ed, Mary and their dog, Butta hanging out on their stoop old school style the way the old ladies and sometimes the old men did on Grand Street in their beach chairs talking to everyone reminding them hey you are in our neighborhood you are in your neighborhood I'm your neighbor so I'm gonna talk to you whether you like or not and sure enough just like the old days in old neighborhoods all over the city, everyone talked back with Ed, Mary and their dog, Butta.

And Butta got a lotta love. As she should.

There is a man on Sullivan who sits outside on a bench almost every day. I don't live in that neighborhood, but when ever I see him, he waves and we chat a little bit. He is the one person on my daily commute I can count on to be there and always be friendly. When he's not there, I worry. When I've been absent, he asks me where I've been. His is a recurring familiar face in a sea of transients and he makes me feel I am coming home.

Butta has to be the coolest name for a dog I've heard so far.

I actually think the dog's name is ButtER but I didn't put an E R at the end of Butt until like in my thirties and was in a play or something. Butta is what Butter is when you really luuuuuuv it. Or her and she was one luuuuuuuvable doggie.
