I really enjoy our random questions so bear with me again this week. Every morning one of my favorite things to do is ask my daughter what she dreamed about last night. Most common answers are cows and horses and occasionally dogs. Sadly I can’t seem to remember my dreams too often anymore so I wonder about you guys. Do you still remember your dreams in the morning? What was the last dream you remember? I was walking by a homeless man who was sleeping and I couldn’t get the thought out of my head – I wonder what he was dreaming about. Anyway, I’m super curious – what was the last dream you remember having (good or bad)?

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 2 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.

Lorenzo Sanders is a clerical assistant working for the Mayor’s Office of Religious Affairs. He was hired in 2012 under the Vincent Gray administration and was a holdover in the current administration.”
