Hey, was that the telephone for me? I thought I heard the phone ring a minute ago and I was so excited.  Sometimes when mama is away, she’ll call and leave a message on the answering machine and I hear her voice and get all excited except then I go looking all around the house and can’t find the body to go with it! So she calls and says,...

Well, don’t look at me.  It was mama’s fault that I didn’t write for two days.  My record was pretty good up to the point that mama forgot to write me a postcard from her trip to see her aunt.  And since I have a forgiving nature, I’m going to share with you the cards that FINALLY came from mama and papa, even though they do not...

MAMA DOES NOT LIKE CROWDS! So why isn’t she here with ME! I AM NOT A CROWD! Well, mama wrote me a litter…er…letter saying that she forgets how cordial and polite people are in Texas and what a pleasure it is to do business with southerners and how nice it is, too, because the weather is WARM.  So maybe mama and papa will have a little bit...

Rear-ended?

Posted by on Sep 24, 2014 | 1 comment

I have a nice tush myself. Actually, mama suggested that title for this blog, but I think it should be, “Rearin’ to Go!”, haha. You do not know how happy mama is that the fashion section of the NYT has cited nice, voluptuous, round buns as the NEXT fashion look.  “Oh, boy,” said mama, “here we go.  Now maybe all of my...

WONDER WOMAN! Well, this morning on her IPad mama found an article about Amy Cuddy, an amazing young woman who suffered a terrible accident early in life and was told she could not finish college because she had lost mental abilities and she was unwilling to accept that.  She now works at Princeton, got her degree (s), taking a bit longer than the others,...

Mama’s packing to go see her brother. I hope she doesn’t take my new nap robe (her nightgown)! Okay, now this is a doozy: Mama and papa were invited to a drinks party by a neighbor and 1. they thought it was only drinks and 2. it was a huge gathering of lots of friends to celebrate the good health of one of the party-givers and so turned out to...

Well, anthros have dropboxes and kitties have litter boxes and in mama and papa’s world right now, there isn’t too much difference, if you get my drift. Papa is trying to send some docs from his IPad to mama’s IPad and neither one of them can figures out how to do it. I just know, deep down in my kitty brain, that it’s easy as...

YAY!!! The cleaners are here to make mama’s atelier sparkle again after the electrical pop! Well, it didn’t really sparkle but I’m sure it will now that they are taking out all of that awful BLACK GREASY SOOT from the almost-fire. That stuff is not what you want on your nice clean fur!!! Fortunately, it’s black and so am I so I...

NICE doggy. THIS is why I went on strike!!! IS THAT MY PHOTO??? ONE GUESS. Well, I guess you’ve been wondering just where I have been and why and what the heck is going on with my daily observations, but I have to confess that it was NONE of my doing and I’m blaming it all on the Roma, mama and papa’s favourite soccer team. Actually they...

Monterey Bay Pipe Band (mama’s brother’s band) Hey, we kitties know what’s under there… Well, mama is not entirely sure (about the referendum, that is) and has Scottish friends who say yes and some who say no, but it seems to me that if Scotland secedes from the UK, there might be hell to pay.  Bankers are worried, the UK is...

Can you imagine someone SLAPPING this cutie… Oh, boy, is mama in a tizzy.  The other day she was walking along the sea walk where there is a little park that says, “Keep of the grass”, and lo and behold, a couple were out there with their Labrador puppy (where they shouldn’t have been in the first place) and mama saw the woman of...

Picnic on the Grass

Picnic on the Grass

Posted by on Sep 13, 2014 | 0 comments

Well, you may not believe this, but this is one of the little streets in my town that is laid with REAL grass every year to celebrate a painting called “dejeuner sur l’erbe”, which means a picnic on the grass (see below). And everyone comes in whatever the theme is, which this year was “Wine and Paintings” or something like...

Uh, oh, mama is in the kitchen again making those little round things that have stuff on them–cheese, spreads, pate’, you know the stuff, but this time, she appears to be spreading caper butter on those tiny crackers and then (to me!) a GIANT slab of smoked salmon.  If I sit here looking hopeful, what do you think might happen? Probably...

A Soupçon of Summer Soups

Posted by on Sep 11, 2014 | 4 comments

Well, when mama makes soup, it’s not just a little taste as the title of this blog implies. She puts everything but the kitchen sink in some of her winter soups, but since it’s not anywhere near winter yet (I cross my paws!), she decided today to make three different cold soups to finish out the summer and once again, I’m in there...

Frankly, I’m pooped after that freezer ordeal! Well, sorry about last night’s shorty blog, but finding all the freezer stuff in puddles was NOT fun. Fortunately, there are those of you out there who leave such nice COMMENTS (like those guys at http://jansfunnyfarm.blogspot.com/) that make me feel a whole lot better than when I saw that light...

Well, not exactly–more like burned freezer. But in that seared atelier you saw on the previous post, there just happened to have been mama’s little freezer where she kept all of her summer tomato sauces, frozen mangos for ice cream and things like…well, plum puddings for December and leftover osso buco from a few dinners ago that would go...

Strained, smooth beet soup with avocado Okay, okay, sometimes beets are right up there with liver on anthros’ hit list, but I like BOTH, just not together…unless it’s beet ravioli with butter and sage, and then afterward, seared liver, still pink in the middle. Num, num. Liver–I’ll take it any time, any day, fellow...

So there are two very good eaters in this house.  Well, three, actually.  But the other two are pretty adamant about eating balanced menus and not a lot of red meat and hardly any butter or saturated fats and lots of pasta, whole grains, fruit and vegetables and olive oil and practically no sugary desserts (except mama’s ice cream, which is mostly...

Mama, may I watch that video again, please? Today, I am going to send you to a website that mama showed me, sent to her by her long-time friend in Santa Barbara.  It was so, so beautiful that I really wish to pass it on to any readers of my blog today.  Your heart will hum and your view of the wild wolf will be expanded.  I think, too, that you’ll...

Looking for new material…hmmm. I really want to write every single day, you nice readers out there, but today was a bit confusing because of the electrical incident in the atelier and I’m going to have to put off until tomorrow what I should have done earlier today. But you know, sometimes my deadline cuts into my snooze…what’s a...
