Made It, Ma! Top of the World!

I guess I just couldn’t resist yet another allusion to film, this time from the 1949 classic White Heat starring James Cagney.

White Heat is the pawfect rainy day or blankets-on-the-sofa with an overflowing bucket of popcorn film. It’s got gangsters, fiery explosions, rapid-fire delivery of witty, snappy dialogue (which I really value bein’ as I’m a WORD dog and all) and a psychopathic killer with an Oedipus complex who learned everything he knows from his  tough-as-nails Ma. If you’re an armchair psychiatrist, you’ll lub White Heat! See it with a Furriend.

And speakin’ of furriends, Vivi, Doc and Howie here are still providin’ me with plenty of opportunities to show you

Well guys, there’s this…

And this! Panoramic views…

Of the city of Knoxville!

From inside…



Tennessee interstate 40 sign.

On top of the world! Or at least in Knoxville, anyway. BOL!
