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 6-8 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.

garden

“Dear PoPville,

Just wanted to pass along a pretty disappointing photo. The Carter G. Woodson Park was recently completed in Shaw at a cost of over $1 million. It is a beautiful space and a great addition to the neighborhood. However, after every storm, a sizable portion of the park floods due to poor drainage. Many of the new plants are already showing damage. It is a shame that the landscapers didn’t anticipate this problem. Hopefully, it can be fixed soon and the park can live on for many years as it was intended.”

Ed. Note: When I first saw one of these giant puddles in Petworth years ago, I was confused too but was told it was perfectly normal that it was just a rain garden intended to collect water like this. Isn’t this same thing?

A little bit more info for those who were looking after not seeing anything on the MPD twitter feed.

From MPD:

“The gunshots you heard most likely came from the 2300 block of 11th Street, NW. We had a shooting in that block, during which two adult males received non-life-th3eatening gunshot wounds. There were no arrests, and the case is still under investigation.”

Looking for an accountant in DC!

“I’m a recent first time homeowner, and soon-to-be first time wife, getting married at the end of the summer. My fiancee and I are looking for a qualified, yet affordable, accountant to advise us on various tax issues for our 2015 taxes. For example, whether to file jointly or separately for the year, various condo-related questions, etc. If anyone has a good referral for someone who is well-versed in these issues, please send him/her my way. Thanks!”

A reader writes in with this disgusting/disappointing note on Friday:

“A cyclist spat on me today. I’m a tour guide and I was standing next to the vehicle while my guests were slowly coming to get in, something I’ve done literally hundreds of times before. Directly behind the Jefferson Memorial there is a stretch of Ohio Drive that people often use for loading/unloading. I was standing on this sidewalk next to one of several vehicles in the road when a cyclist on the sidewalk rode toward me, simply turned his head and spat on my face. He didn’t look back as he sped away.

So heads up maybe there’s a serial spitter biking around.”

Ed. Note: In a perfect world, one caught spitting in someone’s face would be punished severely. In reality this chump will never get caught nor punished. Sadly, lowlifes like this have been witnessed using all forms of transport – so let’s not focus so much on the bike – but I hope we can all condemn the action itself.
