The Writing On the Wall and San Pietro Festival

The Writing On the Wall and San Pietro Festival

Posted by on Jun 30, 2016 | 15 comments

Quote from the Bansky show of graffiti in Rome.  A wonderful artist. Well, papa read me a sweet little article today about how people from small towns and villes and even just bumps in the road are writing each other online to tell about how they came to live there and what their lives and loves are like and maybe a little history of the place and some...

Haiku Kitties

Posted by on Jun 29, 2016 | 13 comments

Well, mama has got it in her head after having done those two quickie line drawings of me (yesterday’s blog) that she wants to start doing sketches in Haiku mode:  17 lines as in a haiku, but instead, 17 DRAWING lines.  Papa said with 17 drawing lines, mama, you could draw the history of the world, part II, but of course he was jesting and mama just...

The Long Hot Summer

The Long Hot Summer

Posted by on Jun 28, 2016 | 10 comments

Hot, sweaty, and snoozy, that’s me. Well, is this all there is?  Am I going to have to recline on this couch for the next few weeks just wishing for a garden or somewhere outside to roam?  Still, when the temperature is close to 100, who wants to go out gallivanting, I ask you. So if I am a bit boring every now and then, it’s because of the...

Soccer Tarte

            Ha, ha, ha–soccer tarte, get it? (I didn’t, but what the heck.) Well, that’s what mama is calling herself, but not exactly a tarte in the sense of, you know, a tarte, but in the sense that it makes for a good pun.  And mama loves puns.  Just get around her and anyone else making a pun and the duel...

Family Ties

              Three generations rarely together. Today papa’s son and family and papa’s daughter’s ex husband and papa’s ex-wife and the little anthros of papa’s son and papa and mama had a pre-birthday lunch for papa’s ex-wife, whom mama adores.  It was a hot but beautiful day on the...

Brexit Blues?

Brexit Blues?

Posted by on Jun 25, 2016 | 6 comments

            (I really look involved in all this Brexit stuff, right?) Well, being a French kitty with Italian and American ties like a maypole, I really don’t know enough about the UK to form any ideas about what just happened.  But I do know that fear played a good part in the Brexit decision, and a bit of racism, no?...

OOPS, Back to Square One

                (THEY ae going to see a Picasso museum because we couldn’t leave when planned, yesterday, but I sort of like the subject matter, no?) So, no change of plan after all because there was a soccer match that papa wanted to see between Italy and Ireland and frankly, we could have left yesterday...

Change Of Plans

Posted by on Jun 24, 2016 | 0 comments

              YAY! Well, not a big change but a better one, I think, because it means I can get out of this n0-pets place and onto the monster a bit early.  I think.  Papa’s on the phone trying to change things because it turned out that his tooth was fine and so we could actually go a bit earlier and see those...

More posts in two days.  Thanks for your patience while we navigate the seas of life.                       BUT GUESS WHAT? You’ll never guess because we are all flabbergasted about this, but when we got to the place where we were staying in order to catch that monster for Italy, a place we had...

Haste and Hornworms

Posted by on Jun 21, 2016 | 10 comments

Well, mama is running around, as usual, nervous like a sack full of turkeys, as papa’s grandpa used to say, but actually, she’s trying to catch white butterflies that, in California at least, just love to leave their little eggs on the tomatoes so that one day, blithely skipping out to the garden to check out the progress of say, Buffalo Steak...

I hope they remember to take my Urinary Care and my KIBBLE!!! Maybe I’ll pack that on my own. Mama speaking here: We move around a lot and I received this from a website owner who had some good ideas about moving house with your kitty, even though when we move little Loulou around, she just relaxes in the car, travels with us on the ferry, and then...

Well, here is a pair of wonderful glasses that mama saw in an amazing toy store in Montpelier, France while she was looking for something for those no-good grandkids that take up her time that should be spent with ME.  But have you ever thought about how many things are made with cats in mind, starting with Cat Woman of course, and the James Bond...

(Matthew Schwartz, photo) Well, is this a beautiful turtle or WHAT?  Mama’s nephew took photos of the turtles on the sand on Maui and mama found this wonderful video about diving with them in those amazingly emerald waters of Hawaii.  The music is pretty wonderful, too.  Very soothing and spiritual. And here they are all together on the sand.  ...

Well, mama and I are reading a wonderful book called Love in Lower Case, by a Spanish author, Francesc Miralles, and the character lives in Barcelona and in the very first pages, a cat walks into his life and he has always said that he HATES cats, but oh, boy, does it get better. Isn’t it great when you think you don’t really like something or...

Flowers In Our Little Village

Posted by on Jun 15, 2016 | 16 comments

Well, after the terrible events in America and in France (I will not go into that one), I thought it best to share with you some lovely plants in our little town and on mama’s wall (the bougainville) and try to bring a little joy and beauty into all of our lives, because I really cannot dwell on these horrors committed by lower-than-beasts and so...

Sahara sand that blows with the winds in our backyard! Well, there is a lot wind out there in my garden and leaves everywhere and mama’s tomato plants had to be tied up really well to their supports and I was about to blow away myself until mama came out and rescued me. Well, not actually, but it makes for a good image, no?  A flying Loulou! ...

TEARS FOR ORLANDO. WHY DID HE HAVE THESE GUNS IN THE FIRST PLACE? WHY DID HE HAVE A JOB AS A SECURITY OFFICER WHEN THE FBI WAS WATCHING HIM? *************** And on a lighter note: I am NOT giving up the period, EVER. Oh, boy, is mama steaming around after having read an article by the man who coaches the Shakespearean actors in England that the period—that...

Think about this. I would love to hear what you think. Okay, this is political, not for long, but I just have to say that when a certain unnamed Republican nominee has been cited for 70 lies in one speech (fact-checkers, news checkers, money checkers, tax checkers, donation to charity checkers and more), one wonders why the American people are standing for...

You’re gonna laugh.  I didn’t even know what a slow jam was!  And once again, Mya’s mama sent a winner. But, readers, of all colors and all political leanings, I just had to put this video on my blog, because whether you like our illustrious President or not–he has hutzpah!  Please watch as President Obama slow jams his term in...
