Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

I’m proud to finally introduce you to my editorial staff. I would have done it sooner but I’ve had difficulty getting them to pose together for a photo.

The editorial staff at Detroit Moxie.Frankie Doodle Davis, my editor in chief, is perched at the top. He has his claws and isn’t afraid to use them to slash my posts in half. He’s MY boy.

Next is Owl-y Bird. She’s the only girl and the baby. She doesn’t really like being an intern and takes it out on the rest of the staff by eating paper. Oh, and she entertains us by playing the piano. Seriously!

Then we have Stoney, the Director of Naps and Licking. He’s very committed to his job. He’s a big boy but full of love and fluff.

Sylvester, Stoney’s littermate, is on the bottom rung. His nickname is Silly but he’s very skittish. He only likes it if you pet him with your feet. That can be awkward. Yeah, he doesn’t really do any work.

Weekend Roundup

I'll be at the Berkley Art Bash. Pleasant Ridge is having their home & garden tour on Saturday from 10 - 4 here's a facebook link: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=125343594156340&ref=mf

By the way, does your editorial staff doing any freelance work? ...didn't think so!

Hey Becks, I've heard there's a baseball game at Tiger Stadium this Saturday. :P

I'll be at the Berkley Art Bash. The Detroit Film Theater also launches their summer season this weekend (that was the subject of my blog today).

Thanks Catherine. I was going to include the Pleasant Ridge Home & Garden tour but ran out of spots. Yeah, my staff thinks they're overworked as it is, don't think they'd be up for freelance. ;-)

Thom, yes! I heard some people might play a baseball game on the old Tiger Stadium field this Saturday. If anyone is in the area in the afternoon they might want to take a look-see. :)

Dominique, thanks for the heads up! Running over to MidwestGuest.com now to read about DFT's summer season.

I have to say, I love them too! And yes, they have a very fancy schmancy kitty condo. :)
