At Christmastime 2011, I was staying 6 blocks from the Augustus St.-Gaudens statue I'd read about in David McCullough's book on Americans in 19th-century Paris. A recent broken hip and Lyme disease were preventing me from making the walk, however. I got my chance when cousins sent a car and driver to take me to the country, and the driver obligingly detoured on our way to the West Side At a traffic light, I lowered the back window and snapped the photo. The whiskers are endearing--and so real, vis-a-vis the statue. (I have two horses at home.)

Location: Midtown New York City, USA
