Can you believe this?  A word of cheer for the last days of the year. Do you realized, all of you wonderful bloggers out there, that you are actually keeping a daily journal of your lives, your loves, your troubles, your changing views, the histories of your families and so much more.  Mama has always lamented to me that she wishes she had kept a journal...

Well, twas the days after Christmas and frankly, I am BEAT and life is pretty anticlimactic, whatever that is.  Mama and papa went off with the small anthros to see something called The Art of the Brick by a man who makes all sorts of amazing things out of Lego plastic pieces and here are some of the things they saw.  Pretty amazing…...

Well, I am a kind of gladiator myself, or amazon, I guess I should say, as you can clearly see in this vicious, wild pose whilst playing The String Game.  But mama and papa actually met some gladiators in the piazza Rotonda in actual METAL SUITS and HELMETS (copies of gladiator garb) and you see below that my ham of a mama just had to have a photo (taken...

Do you think they’ll send ME the royalties by mistake, haha? Well, I think this about says it all for the day after Christmas, the origin of which no one seems to agree upon, but there are enough boxes in this video to have fun with! I think they stole my image for that first kitty–I’m going to talk to my agent about that!  Happy laughing...

Here is mama conducting me as I practice to try out for contralto in the group, Concerto Romano. Well, last night mama and papa went to a church nearby to hear a group, Concerto Romano, that they had heard a few years ago when the group was just beginning and practicing down below an apartment mama and papa lived in and last night the same young man who...

Well, Dezi mentioned baby pics and these are the only ones mama has of me when I was still a bit confused about finding my family and was barely able to realize that I was in a HOUSE, all warm and nice with FOOD and SNUGGLES and more.  I hope I don’t bore you with these photos so I’ll make it short. Mama wanted a kitty. Mama put out food in the...

Well, I’m just sitting here waiting for the sleigh bells but since there is absolutely no snow in this burg, I think I’ll have to use my imagination.  Plus mama forgot to turn on the lights on our little tree (emphasis on ‘little’, believe me) and I love the lights.  Mama aunty sent the funniest thing in an email the other day and...

Oh, boy, are they ever coming back from their walk?  I would go, too, but it’s colder than a St Bernard on a rescue mission out there! They did see more pretty decorations. And Palazzo Altemps where the two halves of a famous boy were put together again after having been in two distant places for years and years without anyone knowing they were the...

So are you all out there ready for the biggy? Well, mama has gone from this: to this: (Hey, we have a lot of birds and a VERY tiny tree!) But she is segueing into this: (Guess who chose the birdy paper…one guess.) And more of this. So we are pretty well on our way to finishing all this craziness and putting our paws up for a couple of days before the...

BEFORE (sort of lonely, right?) AFTER (Okay, okay, it’s a bit stuffed but mama loves her birdies–me, too) Now, moving right along, a friend in France sent a lovely ‘card’.  I found this was so, so beautiful and put us all in the mood for the days ahead.  We are just passing it on because it’s a place I am pretty sure I will...

I am EXHAUSTED!!! Well, today was PACKED.  Papa’s daughter was here for only four days so mama and he had lunch with her, then their little grandkid had a soccer match, and this, just before his sister’s 8th birthday party!  What a day.  And I am hoping they brought home some of those goodies that are always on the table (of course, what I...

No sleighbells yet?  How long do I have to wait for this guy? Maybe I’ll just listen to the street musicians until then. Rome’s bagpipers from the Abruzzo, minus sheepskin pipes!  These guys look as if they could really jam, whatever that is. WITH sheepskin pipes!  Yes, that instrument was once a sheep. Well, these guys (and gals, I think)...

Do you think you can go there and ask for a tummy rubber?    Translation:  Lulu On My Street — handymen, housecleaners, a helping hand, and good humor to go with it. Well, this is really a wonderful thing that neighbors are doing in the Marais in Paris.  There are kiosks, little stands like a place where you buy newspapers and such that help...

Now, see, this is a rare picture of an artist actually WORKING.  Thanks to me. I meow and meow and meow until she opens the door to her studio and WE go in to WORK. This, instead, is a picture of an artist NOT working at all but instead hanging out with ME, which is what she is doing here during these holidays when there is all the time in the world to pop...

Here’s something to get your teeth into. Well, not exactly your teeth but your paws.  Is this cute or WHAT?  Mya’s mama sent it and I think we kitties should ALL be in that video! Speak of the devil, haha, Mya’s mama is an amazing painter, as you will see below, and mama likes this one in particular because of the little critter the kitty...

Guess what?  It’s that time again.  PLUM PUDDING TIME.  Papa’s favourite, and because none of the Italian family really wants plum pudding, mama has made them as a surprise for papa.  Eight, to be exact.  Yesterday.  And some for gifts, of course.  No human anthro can eat eight plum puddings without keeling over! Well…maybe one anthro....

Well, as you can see.  I did my job.  Mama’s feeling much, much better.  Of course that beef broth I made for her didn’t hurt either, with a little leftover chicken thrown in for good measure, along with some fennel, zucchine, potato, carrot and celery.  Oh, and a little tiny hot pepper, always good for colds. So now we are almost back to...
