Yankees vs. Orioles, August 31, 2012

Mr. Softee pulls up at the open fire hydrant in front of the house, while I'm waiting for my friend to pick me up so we can get veggie dogs before the Yankees game

...he needed a quick refresher...
...and then he's off on his rounds.

After veggie dogs, it's a quick jog past the new Barclay's Center to Atlantic Terminal, and the D train to 161st Street in the Bronx.
