Anyway, irony aside, evidently we are losing our skills at conversation, and along with that, perhaps our skills at thinking about what we are saying or might say and how we would say a specific thing to a specific person, such...

Well, today is Monday and I think since mama is working in the yard with no help so I had better get out there and dig for her, maybe claw some bark off the arbousier, take a swipe at the mauvaises herbes and in general, move the garden along toward winter when it will sleep contently, like me, under a blanket of nice warm manure. The garden will sleep...

Getting back into the EU will be more than difficult, because most of the voters for independence do not seem to realize the steps that must be taken to become a member of the estreemed EU and the requirements that must be met in order to have good standing with the EU...

Summer’s End

Well, mama is a bit sad because today she picked one of her last tomatoes and just look at the difference between her little pipsqueak and the last of her neighbor’s jewels. And not only that, it’s time to pull up most of the exhausted plants in the garden and where will I snooze? In the asparagus plants? No way, Jose, because I would itch all...

. Poor little flowery car…what is your future now? Oh, boy, is Volkswagon in deep …er…trouble. Can you imagine the company’s stock going down 40% in two days?  Not to mention the stockholders, workers and anyone associated with Volkswagon and the debacle. What a sad state of affairs for you anthros. Is this just another indication of how the...

Guantanamo

Guantanamo

Posted by on Sep 22, 2015 | 2 comments

A disgrace, mama says. Over fifty men who should be walking free have been kept in captivity for years. Others have had no trial. The Republicans feel that we should have the right to keep terrorists imprisoned forever. And don’t wish to discuss alternatives. Obama promised to close Guantanamo as one of his strongest platforms. With due respect to...

These little babies are what mama is looking for–but in FRANCE! Well, mama is running around like the proverbial chicken with its head removed because she cannot find tiny jam jars anywhere in which to put her hot pepper jelly that will be her presents for many people during the holidays. Why is it that all the great products one loves and has used...

Pretty hunky, eh? Be still my heart… Well, you know how I’m always talking about the kitty in the big shoes and how it’s my favourite story and so on, and I’ve just found out that the magnificent chateau that inspired the story of Puss in Boots is actually empty and can be explored by anyone wishing to visit. The Chateau...

How Do We Get To Where We Are?

How Do We Get To Where We Are?

Posted by on Sep 17, 2015 | 4 comments

Well, how do we get to where we are is a good question. I got to where I am through sheer kitty luck because I was bound for the wilds and if I look feral to you, you’d better check your prescription. I hung our with those cats for awhile, but that’s not my idea of fun, scrounging or begging for food from complete strangers, trying to keep...

Inspiration for Buona Forchetta Hand Made Breads! Oh, boy, something so wonderful happened this morning when mama and papa were out for their walk and stopped by a little bakery that they don’t go to that often, but this time, they did and there was a fresh fougasse and lovely large loaves of country bread and a very nice man behind the counter. So...

September Song

I just love Willie Nelson… Well, mama is playing Willie Nelson’s version of that lovely song, even though it is a bit melancholy and misty and sort of a grey song, to me. And I’m just a four-footed creature who doesn’t think much about season changes. Well, with exceptions…I seem to be…er…filling out in places that used...

Domenico Lucano and friends Mama just realized that Friday passed by without a sound from anywhere, or at least no sound from her papers, TV news or even her brain, for heaven’s sake. 9/11 Yes, Friday was September 11. Perhaps it is best we do not dwell on it when we are trying so hard to welcome those who are oppressed by the people who instigated...

Wow, what a tennis match!!! Perhaps mama didn’t register the date on 9/11 because she was watching Serena as she met her match in Roberta Vinci, the darling Italian tennis star who upset the world yesterday in The American Open. It was funny, mama said, but even from the beginning of the match, mama thought Serena did not have her usual poise and...

Mama can’t believe these kids came to our little town to leave the gift of their voices.  Families here were the hosts and next time, one or two are staying HERE with ME! I’m practicing my myows right now… Well, the story being that mama and papa came home from a concert the other night of chorale music by a young group of singers called...

Kitties can smile, as you see above. I smile often, especially during a snuggle. Well,  don’t exactly stalk mama and papa but I do follow them around a lot. Also on one day, the cleaning lady because I was so sad not to have THEM around after they took off and left me sola.  Take a look at this wonderful website that the mama of Mya (a doggy!) sent...

Lest we forget, oh, bigoted, right-wing racist president of Hungary, perhaps you should read this article and rethink your policies!!! Can you imagine if the family of this genius had been left to sink or swim, attacked upon reaching the safety of a shore by masked gunmen keeping them from landing (as asylum-seekers were in Greece) or turned away to drift...
