magic jake and the cardboard fish

Summer is already rolling by like the careless thunderclouds up above but the air is free and our spirits higher than ever. Music and soft warm breezes dance daily through our souls and hardly a cloud was out of place this past Sunday when I was awarded the privilege to take a spin to the Point for the Three Rivers Arts Festival with 3 lovely ladies and our magical friend named Jake.

While the smell of melting asphalt and the slow paced saunter of summer dwellers in Oakland is a relaxing way to count the hours, spending the afternoon with quirked-out friends, dogs of all shapes and sizes and abnormally large cardboard fish will win out on most occasions.

So Sunday afternoon, we caught the bus and hit the shaded streets of downtown Pittsburgh for some unique art displays and festival food to die for. Sliding alongside myself and the ladies was our brah Jake, who displays a witty and tripped out persona that rubs off good vibes almost instantly upon his arrival. Reaching the end of the artist's tents at the fest, we found an eerie scene of eclectically painted aquatic life sprawled out on the sun-parched grass. We rescued the poor little guys and picketed our fishy friends all the way back to their new home in Lacy's front garden (people actually asked what we were on strike for!  "Adopt a fish," we told them, obviously!"). Jake skating down the sidewalk with his fish held in front of his face might have been the most magical moment we witnessed all weekend, and without a doubt the best finale to a hot day on the front lines of the Three Rivers Festival scene.  
if magic jake doesn't put a smile on your face, check out baldy in the back picking out his new special fish friend!
