(Cincinnati zoo photo) Above you see Harambe, the gorilla who was shot and killed so that he would release a three-year-old who fell 10 feet after climbing through the barrier  into area where Harambe lives at the Cincinnati zoo.  Lived, that is. I wish they could have used tranquilizers.  There are tranquilizers that can drop a hippo instantly, so this...

Well, they exposed me to THAT DOGGY again, Mya. Yes, THAT one above looking so cutesy-pootsy. She comes over here with her parents to dinner and wiggles around all over the place and when mama picks up a lemon that fell from our tree, she goes bananas, thinking it’s the tennis ball that mama throws for her sometimes and then mama get the ball and...

Oh, boy, what can’t we females do?  A story in today’s NYT touched me very deeply, because mama and I are always discussing why anthros can’t get along with one another even though they are from other countries and cultures, especially if they are from different backgrounds (!), and this story says it all.  Just imagine how it feels when...

Let’s Hear It For French Women

Unwanted attention? Oh, boy, I was impressed to read today that a guy in the National Assembly here in France was discovered to be sexually harassing some of the women in his office over a long period of time, and several of them have come forward to say that they will not stand for it any longer and that he needs to be ousted.  Which he was. Now, France...

Our little church tower at sunset. Well, I just went out and took some shots of our little ville because it’s so nice now that the summer appears to be happening and I thought you might like to see them. What’s nice is that it’s an old-fashioned little town with lots of older people and mama loves older people (now that she IS one, haha)...

  Well, I’m just here checking out the roses and making sure they’re growing properly.  I love to sniff them, but there was a little spider in one and it jumped right on my nose and scared the living daylights out of me! I’m contemplating him, as you see, but I think I’ll keep my distance.  Those little tiny spiders are the...

I mean, is this doggy cute or WHAT? Even I fell for this one. Well, I’ve been thinking. This little ville of mine is full of some of the cutest, most friendly, most interesting doggies you will ever see. Maybe because so many are here on vacation and everyone is very relaxed, including their canines (I mean their doggies, not their teeth) and so most...
