Icons Of Cherokee Street

On Cherokee Street 5

Seen on the walls and windows of Cherokee Street during the parade and festival. The portrait of Nelson Mandela is new since I last stopped by, possibly put up after his death. So beaming, so charming for a man who faced such harsh challenges.

The second image is harder to understand. It's the window of a home. What's the relation between the word Jesus and the elegantly dressed boy?  Is it a heartbreaking memorial or just two things important to the homeowner? We'll never know.

I like your movies around Madeleine and the dogs. Great dogs to keep so calm with her. I agree with you about the remark about japanese and european coffee. You are absolutely right.

Can't get past that adorable video. What a beautiful temperament the dog has and such an enchanting grandchild.

Love the Mandela mural but terribly distracted by the mega cute video.. what a little darling, gosh how fast do they grow up Bob.. this family dog looks like he/she has been there done that many times before :)

I'm not too keen on dogs licking babies but I'm sure it's good for their immune system and I have to say dogs make fantastic playing buddies. Madeleine is obviously having such a great time!
