Tomato Truth

Hey, you remember that just a few weeks ago mama was lamenting her loss of tomato seedlings and saying that nothing was growing properly and then she’d tear her hair and wail, “NO TOMATOES THIS YEAR–wah, wah” and all those things she said about having an empty garden for the first time in her life?  Remember that? Well–what do you think THESE are? Tennis balls? (And while we’re on the subject, wasn’t it great to...

A Chat (haha, get it?)From Collioure

Here’s what I think of that humongous thang on the sea that blocked the horizon the other day. But how lovely is this little sailing ship.  Nice lines, huh, and romantical looking.  All the passengers probably look like The Great Gatsby, whoever he was. Big improvement over that monstrosity, no? And hundreds of tourist anthros are actually swimming now in the warm-ish waters, as you see. Mama put in that  -ish…she likse bathtub temps after...

Home Stretch

OH, boy, a good morning stretch starts the day off so well.  I think stretching is really the best thing a kitty can do to start working on the roly poly parts, don’t you?  And make your anthro do them, too.  In my case, mama is the one who…er…sort of agreed with the V-E-T about my figgah…. Next, try letting out a big energy-releasing MYOW!!! Keep your muscles warm by stretching under some sort of...

Garden Guru II

Uh, oh, mama’s calling me to take some shots of our neighbor’s masterpiece. BEFORE – Late spring (naturally I did NOT take this today, haha. I have a stash of photos for all occasions). AFTER – NOW! THE GURU Well, I know you’ve seen this spectacular garden in other blogs, but each year is a marvel and it’s what I gaze at all day long, watching the rondoneles swooping down to get insects that hover...

Raving Ravioli

Hey, I’m just here minding my own business, practicing my rabbit kicks, and I smell something really good being mixed up in the kitchen. Uh, oh, mama’s making ravioli and I guess this was an unplanned Art Shot with her fingers reflected in the pasta maker, haha.  She gave me a tiny piece of dough but it’s not my gig. Now when she puts a little of that ricotta filling in my bowl, that’ll be...

Morning Musings

Okay, okay, which one is the fake Loulou?  Mama went to our open market early the other morning and saw this little critter snoozing at one of the sellers’ booths…this and THESE: Hey, they are awfully cute, no?  And mama actually bought one a few years ago for a friend who couldn’t have a kitty and so now she has a fake one as her little pet and she’s happy as the proverbial clam, whatever...

A Waning Beauty

Okay, okay, that’s it for the moon.   Onward and upward I always say, but er…not so much upward as snooze-ward. Around here the summer is really upon us and mama and papa walk in the early morning and see things they might have missed later in the day.  Like this HUMONGOUS MONSTROSITY that looked as if aliens are invading in a space thingy.  These are the ships that caused so much damage in the waters...

Getting Your Goat(s)

Dreaming of goats… Well, mama’s friend, Anne, sent this really lovely website of a photographer who did a series of really amazing GOATS! I know this is a kitty blog and does at times allow doggies to grace its pages, but these goats are remarkable.  Actually, we would love to have one around here to take care of the very few weeds and leave a little..er….calling card to fertilize the garden, but I’m afraid I...

REVOLUTION

REVOLUTION

Well, let’s hear it for Bastille Day.  Bravo for the French who revolted against oppression as the rich got richer and the poor got poorer.  Sounds familiar. But today we celebrate, even though the fireworks are next door in a little town 2 km. up the road.  But I think those planes are going to fly over with red, white and blue smoke, just like the ones in Italy on their special day in...

Butterfly Blues

I know, I know, you must be getting tired of these look-alikes, but mama really couldn’t resist THIS one. A Papillon (butterfly), see below, and mixed with who knows what, but that little devil is deception personified.  Mama said, “Oh, you cute little adorable thing, oh, you little mignonne doggy” and the doggy’s tale wagged and she looked as if she were going to roll over but that feisty little creature bared her teeth at...
