And then -- there we were, looking down from the Chrysler Building -- a dizzifying experience.
We were all set to travel on to Paris with the gang -- but then we got an urgent message from the folks wondering why the Port of Mayemphis had called them about damages to the paddle wheel dock -- so we thought we'd better get home tout de suite to explain.
How did we get home? Why, when we learned that the koi family in Iowa was being threatened by our Heron-cam's koi-loving cousin, we sent out an all points bulletin to our own reliable HC. He talked to his cousin who decided to leave the koi and fly up to NYC to pick us up.

So, all is well that ends well: Gussie is doing fine after his surgery. When we explained that we were in a hurry to see a sick friend, the kind Port Authority dropped all charges. The folks have forgiven our impetuosness in causing the damages to the dock (we are, after all, terriers). We had a wonderful time in NYC celebrating Aire Ruby's anniversary. And, hopefully, we averted koi tragedy and set another heron on the right path.
And we have this wonderful souvenir, again, thanks to Asta, to remember the celebration by.
