Earthquake in Amatrice

Mama and papa are really upset about the earthquake in Italy.  So many dead and more buried and the little towns around the epicentre, devastated. All of the family are fine, however, and were not near the disaster even though not terribly far away.  Very nervous-making to have everything shake in the middle of the night. No blog today, only prayers for the people of Amatrice and surrounding towns and hamlets and hope that there...

Something Fishy

YAY! Fish for dinner. “Loulou, that is not YOUR fish, that’s OUR fish; your fish is in a packet and all chopped up nice with gravy and ready to eat.  You don’t want to have to remove all the bones, do you?  It took me finding a really nice waiter to teach me how to get the filets out of a bony fish, and you don’t have ANY bones in your pageot.” Mama tells...

Gardens (and neighbors) of Delight

Well, you remember when I took this out in the garden saying hello to our neighbour, M. Riere, and he was just beginning to prepare his soil for spring and as you see, it was a chilly day in the late winter and zilch is growing except for a few leftover little whatever they ares and so I thought I would show you what that same piece of barren turf looks like NOW: And as...

Burkinis and Bikinis (La) Mer Musings

These ladyanthros look as if they have just done some diving–what’s not to like? And whose business is it anyway? La mer, being ‘sea’ in French.  I don’t want to get too into politics here, but mama and papa and friends were discussing the burkinis on the beaches and everyone has a very strong opinion pro and con for the French decision to ban the burkini. Personally, I think it’s silly.  Freedom to wear...

Another Dog Day Afternoon…

Here’s one mama just picked out outside the supermarket.  She is incorrigible and will talk to ANYONE with a funny dog. Okay, okay so show us the cutsy pootsy hat again, mama.  ANY doggy can wear a hat.  At least he chose one for doggies. PAPA PETTING MYA. Is he out of his mind? MYA-SITTING ON MY SCRATCHING MAT!!! A bulldog puppy.  Lordy knows what he’ll do when he grows up! This one just gave...

A Bolt Out Of The Blue!

Wow! I’ve never won anything! Well, I am pretty excited about this.  Dezi and Raena had a contest for Fly Fishing and I won a Pawlympics medal!!! Even if what I caught was not really a fish (or a fly), but I supposed you could stretch your imagination to think of it as…an eel.  A very skinny eel. So THANK YOU, Dezi and Raena Belle.  I am so excited! Hey, in the next Pawlympics, just...

CULPRIT APPREHENDED

IMPERSONATOR, THIEF, THIEF! And he doesn’t even eat the whole tomato, the little s…t. Excuse my French but mama is on a tear… Well, not exactly apprehended. Have you ever tried to catch a Pi bird, much less scare one off? Lotsa luck.  They will steal your jewelry right off your fingers if they could!  And they do, if you leave it lying around or anything lying around in the garden–off it will go! And...

Yummy Tummy

Well, a good friend on Maui sent me a raspberry for my tummy and I don’t know what the heck you would want with raspberries on your stomach and all over your fur, especially RED berries!  What on earth did she mean?  Come to think of it, she sent another raspberry a few blogs ago when I was stretched out, but mama never delivered them to me. I’m not big on fruit anyway, but thank...

Shadow Subtleties

Well, you know how mama loves shadow pics and this one is of mama’s stepdaughter and son and friends traveling across the great USA on a road trip over the last few weeks.  A good pic, no?  I’m wondering who is out there on the end of that cliff? Anyway, the photos she has sent are just marvellous and it shows what a great country we have especially in that part of the US.  She...
