40s actress home?

I can't remember the name of the Hollywood actress who owned a single family home on California at 5000N. It is on the west side of the street. I think she quit acting and joined a convent?

Found: Young gray cat with fluffy tail and white flea collar

Found a sweet gray cat with a fluffy tail. Young and small--very sweet and friendly and feeling lost. She's wearing a white flea collar. She followed my boyfriend home. He found her on Monticello (near Cullom).

    An update: I took him to the vet. He is not chipped, and tested negative for FIV/FeLV
    (whew!!). We've put up flyers, and rung a bunch of doorbells, but it seems like he might have been on his own for some time. We thought he was very young, but he is a mature cat just very underweight.

    He's safe with me for as long as he needs--maybe forever if we can (slowly) get him together with our two cats. He's so sweet. I'm taking him back to the vet for a full exam next weekend.

    However, I'll leave this post up for a while in case someone is looking for him. Please let your neighbors know if you hear anything! Thank you.

    Aww. Thank you for having him checked out and taking him in! He is lucky to have found such kind people.

Christ he's not even smart enough to shut the hell up before his hearing is he?

Seeking parking space

Hello neighbors, does anyone know how I can find out about parking spaces available for rent in the Margare Terrace section of Uptown? I live on Carmen and it's particularly hard to find street parking. I would be willing to pay someone to rent their spot.

  • Typo....meant Margate Terrace

  • Jeffrey Littleton 3rd Generation Uptown

    I believe the surface lot just west of Sheridan on Southside of Foster leases parking. It's close, but not technically Margate Park.

1 cam walker boot with air pump (size adult small)
1 mobility knee scooter
1 shower chair

I've heard that some physical therapy offices will take these and donate them to countries in need, but I'd also love to help local folks if possible. I've checked places like ALS association, Shriners, and other organizations that don't accept these items.

Does anyone know of a local nonprofit that can use these items? If not I still plan on asking my physical therapist if they can donate them.

Thanks!

Dog passed away in my alley

I was coming back from work and saw a dog who had passed away laying in the alley this morning between Monticello and central park, south of Leland . Looked like a terrier or beagle mix. Had nothing on me to move the dog. So i went home to get a blanket, went back and the dog was gone. Looked in the garbages and didn't see it. Anyone know any thing?

Very odd encouter tonight around 8pm with two rather LARGE racoons acting like gansters(wish i was kidding). One climbed out of tree on the South side of farragut and went into someones front yard bushes so me and my dog crossed the street to avoid the thug(he did stare us down). Smart right, or so i thought. As im walking and watching the south side of street, i hear a scrambling of claws on bark directly in front and to the left of me and watched in horror as his bigger and badder partner in crime LANDED RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY DOG on the sidewalk. I sceamed(Im a soprano screamer so glass was breaking somewhere), yanked my dog hard back towards me and watched as this bandit hopped in the air in fear(i think my scream scared him off his plan to eat my dog) and he bolted across the street to meet up with his cohort. At that point i wasn't sure how many more there might be so i yelled my dogs name and said RUN!! We took off like lighting(well at a fast trot), but my dog kept checking behind us to be sure we weren't being followed.....in all seriousness....WATCH OUT. This really happened, and a smaller dog could have been seriously harmed. Please spread the word. DESCRIPTION: Grey body fur, black stripes, black mask around beedy eyes, fat, sharp claws, working in tandem, north and south sides of west farragut, 2100 block(alley going West to Levitt).

    Like most taprooms, Half Acre's new spot in Lincoln Square (2050 W. Balmoral Ave.) prioritizes function (drinking) over form. Sure, there's some neon art eye candy, and the pint glasses have an appealing, brightly-colored logo printed on them. But it's meant to be a place to really delve into Half Acre's extended brew catalog.

It just stood there staring at us as we were abut 20 feet away. I immediately scooped up my small Jack Russell Chi and held under my arm. The fox walked away after about 3 minutes and continued southward on Rockwell towards Montrose. I called 911 and they said they would dispatch police/animal control.
So this is a warning to small pet owners as myself to be careful in this area if walking at night...do not take your eyes off your small pets or let loose if in this area!
