Bonne Route! Buon viaggio!

Well, that was something!!! Here I am, resting on mama’s leg, exhausted from little anthros’ snuggles. Boy, I should hire out these little darlings–I was brushed, snuggled, talked to endlessly, regarded with love and admiration, and at times, pushed to a limit (Wake up, Loulou, I’m here, let’s play, do you want to be brushed, do you want your malt paste, do you want to go outside and run, do you want this or...

If Peter Piper Picked A Peck Of Pickled Peppers…

I was just sitting here in my St. Vincent scarf (a new design comes out each year to wear during the festival) when the doorbell rang. Oh, boy, our Garden Guru has done it again. On the doorstep were THESE, in the lovely orange bucket that Jean Riere manages to fill and give away to us weekly! The most beautiful, shiny red peppers and the little piemientos de Padron (the city from which they originally...

The Big Bangs

Post-St. Vincent. And a good time was had by all… Well, mama’s fireworks photos weren’t all that snazzy, but she says the bangs were BIG (earplugs in most ears) and the show, spectacular.  Better than all the other years she and papa have seen it. I snoozed. But I was sorry to miss the little 7-year-old being taught to dance by his sister, around 13.  Mama says he was the highlight of the evening.  She...

Strike Up The Bands

WOW! It’s a hot time in the old town tonight! Oh, boy, is the music all around this little burg today!  Actually the music was heavy around Wednesday and there was an all-female anthro band that mama said was really amazing…a tuba, clarinet, horn, drums and trombone! Then there is the lady who makes animals out of balloons (mama said one popped while she was making an animal and she just blew up another in...

Adobe Aggravation

I am SOOOOOO FRUSTRATED that I just had to attack my mouse to let off some steam. (This is the photo I am trying to save to Adobe) So here’s the question:  does anyone out there try to ‘save as’ photos from emails and have the choice of where to put the photo, as in Pictures, and then you click on ‘Save’ and the picture does NOT, as it always has, save to Adobe, which...

Windy City and Patron Saints

I’ll probably stay  home and play with my elastic and avoid the crowds!  And the HUGE winds that may not allow the fireworks tomorrow night.  Hey, better for my ears…. Happy August 15th!!! Well, there is a lot of hustle and bustle around here for the holiday of St. Vincent, patron saint of fishermen, for whom Collioure celebrates the middle of August (Ferragosto in Italy).  So whichever town you are in, things...

Snuggle Attack!!!

Snuggle Attack!!!

Who the heck is this?  They’re all over the place and all over me.  But one is a great tummy-rubber… Oh, lordy, another one.  Couldn’t they put me in a more…er…flattering position. These guys just bill and coo over me (hey, I’m not a tourterelle!) and then expect me to TAKE IT ALL!  Actually, mama does love to have someone show her my feet…er…paws. Uh, oh, they’re all going out to dinner!  And leaving...

Eskimo Kitties

  Uh, oh, I have to get to my computer—I wanted to get this one in asap! Well, recently, a very nice man, Wang Beezer (Wang last name, Beezer first name but in China it is reversed), sent Loulou information about a very snazzy kitty litter box (designed by a friend of his)  that mama felt was beautiful and efficient enough to put on my blog and so I’m doing that because I was smitten, too,...

Caught In The Act

Cacacacacacacaca….chatter chatter chatter. YES, at that blurry thing in the background next to MY watering hole!  He’s always here! Or she. Whatever. I’m going in. My cacaca holds no water for that tourterelle, haha. OH, NO, now THEY are brushing me over and over.  Well, can’t be such a bad visit after all.  Malt paste reward at end of this ordeal… Hey, they’ve moved from pulling it to grooming it. Not a bad...

Belle Fille et Fils

Cleaning myself up for the guests… Which means stepdaughter and stepgrandson, who arrive today for a few days with all of us and for whom I pray this weather will straighten up and fly right, whatever that means. IT”S COLD. 18 degrees, which is in the low seventies, I think, and not warm enough to swim or be without sweaters at night and mama is really ticked off. She is a HOT mama. Give her...
