60s Schlock

Well, here I am trying to keep my balance in the back seat as we head toward home and New Year’s Eve and the fireworks and all the townspeople in the streets dressed in 60s costumes!  Personally, I did not want to wear that afro mama bought me or a headband so I am staying HOME where I am quiet and sane and not out there with all the crazies...

No, this is not yours truly as a youngster…but it made me smile so thank you www.123rf.com. Well, as the year draws to a close, I thought I’d put out some of my favourite pics to finish off 2015 with some chuckles… I may drool, but I DON’T snore! Strung out EEEK…a mouse! Ha, ha, ha, that was a good one! Couldl you turn off...

Now where did I leave my tooth crackers? Well, it’s that time again and I am really going to try not to throw up on mama or anywhere in the cabin on our trip back to my garden and familiar territory. These holiday trips take a lot out of me, that’s for sure, and I’m pushing five! Still, to be with the family was really nice, even if I was...

Santo Stefano Day

Well, in Italy it is the feast day of St. Stephen and mama’s favourite carol, Good King Wenceslas, pops into her head and she has asked me to put a link to the music because the words are so timely and lovely, especially during a season in which so many have so little.  It’s a beautiful song to help end the year with joy in our hearts. I love...

  I’m taking notes on this great article! Well, I read this article in the NYT about another way to counter the terror of ISIS, and found it most interesting.  There has always been great worth in knowing one’s enemy, and I think I am really going to have to take a look at the Quran and see for myself what it says. Then again, even in the...

Are those sweet eyes, or what?  Sixteen years old and still like a puppy! Oh, boy, my friend, Mya in France, sent the most BEE-OU-TI-FUL video of the last living 9/11 rescue doggy, Bretagne (which is pronounced by all, Brittany, but which, in French, is really bruh-tan-ya but who cares because in any language she is so sweet, so kind, so responsive and so...

We are all aware of what she represents. A friend of mama’s, Cathy Salter, sent this link to us recently and if you have time to read it, please do, as it is very relevant to the immigrant influx that Europe and the United States is experiencing. Here is the site in case the link does not work. Much to be learned here....

A holiday smile for you No, I am NOT sending out eggnog to everyone who reads my blog, but I would if I could! Even I love eggnog (without the Jack Daniels, thank you) but mama isn’t a big sweet-eater and so we don’t make a lot of it around here. I just thought some holiday photos would be nice to gaze upon, and when I heard about he store that...

Nobody Knows The Truffles I’ve Seen

So is mama going to let me lick this bowl?  No way, Jose.  She barely let me lick the spatula and then she grabbed it away too soon because this stuff is not food for kitties. Only a teeny-tiny bit every now and then.  But what can I do?  Mama is making truffles all the time and I have to sit there smelling the dark chocolate melting with the cream and...

When you see the amazing skill that went into the statuary and the artifacts at the Palazzo Altemps from early civilizations--Roman, Greek, Etruscan, Syrian and so many more--it is unimaginable that anthros of the same human race would want to bomb the bejeezus out of places that have been graced by such incredible art and beauty....

Well, I did a blooper, forgive me. It was Everycat who told me about Zuckerberg and I thank them for the info. Sorry about that. And if you want to warm your heart’s cockles and feel the holiday spirit, just take a look at these enchanting animals who love one another unconditionally. Would that we could all do that with our lives.  Maybe we can!...

Well, I never!!! First it’s a Chihuahua and now it’s a polar bear!  Right in the middle of the Corso, one of the main shopping streets of Rome!  What is mama going to find next?  Actually, it was papa who said, “Wow, you have to get over there and take a picture” to mama and she thought at first that it was real and so she sort of...

Ercole in Italian or Ercolino, as his mistress calls him, Little Hercules. I am so offended that I’m not going to post tonight. THIS Yoda impersonator is what mama has been visiting all...

Tangled up in the red tape of Republican vs Democratic dissention in government The following is my response to an excellent It’s Noodle post: As always, I agree with all you say and I have written previously about the having of guns and the semi-automatic weapons that seem to grace the closets of too many Americans, weapons that can become automatic...
