Thank you, George Plimpton

So, I’m messing around with the some pictures and trying to make the house a better, more colorful reflection of who we are and I find this great photo from a party at George Plimpton’s house. I framed it in a great black glass frame and set it aside. A few minutes later, space identified, I go to get it and can’t find it. Being who I am, I start calling it, “George? George? Where are you George? George Plimpton, where are you?”

Suddenly, here comes PD James running as fast as possible. He practically skids to a stop, looks up at me and meows. His eyes are all lit up and he reaches for my hand with his paw. Seriously. I’m not making this up.

I asked him, “Is your name ‘George’?” He meows again and is almost dancing around my legs.

Wow. His name is George. It’s not Tanner or PD James or One Eyed Pete or James or Peter. It’s George!

I let him leave the room in a bit and then called, “George! George!”

Here he came… running down the hall as fast as his little legs would carry him.

When you rescue an animal you do your best to name them properly but you always wonder what they were named before… in their first homes. This is the first time I have ever actually found out.

His name is George.




  1. That’s awesome! How cool is that? I bet he’s so happy now!
