AND TOTO, TOO ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!

  

Head for the Hills, folks!  Elmira Gulch -- the Despicable Spinster from "The Wizard of Oz" -- is alive and well and living in Santa Monica.  She surfaced this morning at 7th and Montana just in time to catch Rita in the act of trying to help a Homeless Dog.  The fun began when Rita arrived on the scene with Riley, a homeless Pekinese she wants to adopt as a companion for Max, her Fearless Poodle.  While Max knows how to sit quietly outside and wait for Rita when she grabs her coffee, Poor Riley -- a newcomer to Our Favorite Starbucks -- threw a Conniption Fit the moment Rita disappeared.  He barked, He yelped, He dragged a chair across the sidewalk ... all of which prompted Rita to come running, empty handed, to his rescue.  I went inside to get Rita her Iced Vanilla Latte ... and came face-to-face with Miss Gulch.  "So, you're getting her coffee, are you?," she hissed.  "I tell you, what does Rita expect, bringing a Homeless Dog like that around here?!?  Does she actually think it will behave when she runs in for coffee?!?"  And with that, she glared in Rita's direction -- as if to say "I'll get you, my pretty, and your little dog, too!" -- and flew out the door.

Your Elmira look sound alike is doing a pretty good Gene Simmons look alike from the side in your blocked out picture!  LOL  I think Rita is fabulous and so are you for helping her get her caffeine fix.  Poor little doggie is afraid its new mommy was leaving her!

be well,
Dawn

Doesn't she know that houses fall on mean ladies who don't like homeless dogs?  Good for Rita taking her possibly new pup around with her to see the sites.  California is SO much more dog accesible than Indiana.

I don't know what's going on in your neck of the woods Marty, but there seems to be a plague of severe acne!

Unfortunatly there are alot of bitter Elmiras types that manage to turn up and suck all of the energy right out of the room...Don't you wish they would all just get on their brooms and fly away?...Kittie

That was really nice of you to fetch her coffee.  I hope Ms Fussy didn't borrow Starbuks broom to fly off!  I used to frequent a Starbuks and it seemed like someone always would accidentally knock over a bunch of coffee cups and break them - so they used their broom a lot!
