Willamena's backyard, Central Park, is celebrating the 150th anniversary of it's design this year.
Instead of a bouquet of helium balloons --that would only get stuck up in the trees anyway-- the Central Park Conservancy and City Parks & Rec joined with AeroBalloon to offer rides in this large helium-filled balloon through August 22nd.
Visitors go up, up -- up 30 stories -- but not away. The balloon is tethered.
See more pictures here.
Willamena hasn't gone up- she prefers to stay grounded. Actually, she's always trying to get at the core of the park. She'd dig her way that direction if she had her way.
You can go skyward everyday 10am to 10pm until August 22nd. The location is Cherry Hill, on 72nd street. It costs 25-dollars for adults and $17.50 children.

In honor of the opening of The Dark Knight, Bat Mena explores some of her favorite caves in Central Park.
But wouldn't you know it, she finds green slime in her watering hole, and now must be a news hound to find out what joker is responsible.
The full story of The Dark Dog is COMING SOON.....

The new Mino was supposed to be used as a collar cam today, but instead, it caught some flames as Willamena's apartment was starting to fill with smoke.
Outside people gathered to watch as numerous crews fought this apartment fire.
Back inside the apartment, you can see firemen putting out hotspots.
And ouch. Look at his poor flooded terrace.

Mena's new Mino is smaller than my Blackberry. It weighs less than a large Milkbone. You Can imagine it's a little different to shoot with than the 30-pound monsters I've carried on my shoulder.
So last video we were leaving Central Park to sit in Alternate side parking. It was too hot to sit in the car, so we sat on a stoop near our car.
Here is our little video. (Soon these will be all edited and polished, so enjoy these rough cuts while you can!)

Willamena loves getting an extra walk at night because it isn't dark yet. She also likes hanging out in Central Park with a blanket and picnic during free concerts.
But since this is the time of year that The Dog Star, Sirius, shines the brightest, we get Dog Days, which begin July 3rd and end August 11th.
If there was an XM star, and it happened to shine during either flower blooming season or snow shoveling, Mena would try to promote X-treme Mena season.
