Esther the Chihuahua is ready for her close-up. She and her buddy Angus (also a Chihuahua) belong to my friend Little Ginger and her husband, who hosted a Memorial Day shindig to which I came very late (packing, you know). But it was lovely to relax a little and devour a brat under the fulsome moon and the party lights in a cozy nook behind their turn-of-the-(last)-century rowhouse. There are maybe eight narrow houses in an L that share a prettily landscaped backyard that is tucked away in the middle of the block. You would never guess it is there. It reminds me of Parisian courtyards, a green oasis in the middle of the city.
