Clutch! Redux

Rescued Pets Movement was a recent beneficiary of a grant from the Clutch City Foundation. The Clutch City Foundation was established by Houston Rockets owner Les Alexander as a way to give back to the Houston community. I was lucky enough to be included among some RPM staff members and volunteers at a Houston Rockets playoff game against the Oklahoma City Thunder–the Rockets won! I brought a Run As One T-shirt home for Tom, and I got a Clutch Bear to celebrate having fun at a great game. Thanks, Rockets, for all you do!

Follow the yellow brick road

On Friday, Timothy and I met our friends Ashley and Angela at the Bayou City Art Festival in Houston’s Memorial Park. I saw so much that I liked and admired–I love the way creative people’s minds work. But hands down, my favorites were the works of artist Amy Flynn. They are “found object robots,” or FOBOTSĀ®. Seriously, go to that site. Look at her photos. Look at her blog. She is AMAZING, and one day I will have some of these critters. In the meantime, how about a little Oz action?

Later that night, Lynne and Ashley joined The Houndstoothers for a cookout and some delicious chocolate cake baked by Debby. It might be someone’s birthday soon. I can’t keep up during birthday season.
