My neighborhood becomes the safest place in the world when the UN General Assembly is in session. They seal the mailboxes, remove trash cans (making it challenging to abide by doggy cleanup laws) and barricade streets (making it nearly impossible for Eloise to curb herself as is her normal practice). There were 20 police officers on my corner alone this morning!
This picture gives a good idea what it’s like. The little pug in the middle represents where Eloise would be if allowed – unless she’s flirting with the police officers. . . 🙂
