                        MAMA DID WHAT? Oh, boy, mama’s done it now.  She sent out invitations to her vernissage to an email group, mostly friends in the USA, but there were some French friends in there too, and she mistakenly sent out the wording that she used to send an invitation to the...

            Well, I’m sacked out, too, because mama came home from the knee doc after he took out some liquid that was painful and here we are together, she with ice on her elevated knee and me, well, the usual. There seems to be this magic stuff called Synvisc that you inject into a knee that is having trouble with...

  Well, mama made me put this video from her cousin in here because it made her so HAPPY.  And we can use things like this nowadays.  I also think she was influenced by THAT BOOK (you know the one–I.Q. something or other) because of one of the questions: Reacts to music and rhythm (e.g. sitting on radio or piano, moving in time to the music by...

Oh, boy, am I going to have to take SATS, too? SO–mama finds this booklet on Amazon and she is a sucker for ANYTHING that has ANYTHING that resembles me on the cover and she BUYS it and it actually ARRIVES and she starts in on the questions and away we go… Thing like THIS: I have to say that the drawings are great, but when she goes to THIS: Is...

Well, Mya is heading out to the watering hole, too, I think.  I neglected to ask about DOGGY visits and how not to be rude to visitors who pass me like ships in the night, whatever they are.  Actually, I KNOW what they are, unfortunately… Mya didn’t even KISS me this time, but did follow me around a bit. But I want to thank all of you for your...

Macron Rocks!

I stayed up too late and watched elections. But, we are really happy here in France that the infamous Marie Le Pen has slipped into the sidelines after the young, vibrant Mr. Macron took this first vote by storm.  This, a man who quit his job as Finance Minister with President Hollande and said, “I’m going to run for President instead.” A...

Pondering my well-being and mindfulness. Well, mama and papa love our vet, actually even I love our vet, because she is gentle and kind and tells me how svelte I am looking (sometimes) and her shots do not hurt, and she always say how lucky mama and papa were to find ME, but mama has some questions about me that need answers from REAL anthros who have...

Well, that about says it!  The Earth goes on and on and on but according to Stephen Hawkings, that might be finite.  And let us all try to help her age a bit longer than whenever that might happen!!! I’m a bit late but c’est la vie…Just pretend it’s Saturday. I’m sure we can all do something, even small, on all the other days...

Well, I’m just resting up before the slaying of the dragon by our patron saint of Collioure. Well, today is the celebration of St. Jordi (St. George to most), who slayed the dragon and saved the life of the King’s daughter and so he did, right on our little beach and mama cried!  Have you ever heard of such a thing?  I mean it was just some...

Okay, Here is the ferocious feline grabing this ribbon/mouse and about to devastate it NOW.  So I can sleep! Almost there, my formidable claws will rip that ribbon to shreds in just a few more moments. And with the help of my fang-saber-teeth, there will be NO CONTEST. I have that mouse in my sights, I am about to slaughter cut it to ribbons to an...

Some of you out there have commented on my tummy and sleeping habits and so I felt that because of this spring fever that everyone around here seems to be afflicted by that I would give you an intimate look at how it affects me and what I do with it.  One guess… Well, let’s just start with this one. HEY, you guys woke me up!!! And just for a...

NO, NO, don’t make me shell fava beans!!! Well, broad beans are called fave in Italy and feves in France and mama has just picked a gazillion beans and is shelling them and plunging them into boiling water for 2 minutes and then into ice water and then draining and freezing them.  But guess what?  You can just shell and freeze them and when...

I’m taking it easy today.  That party was exhausting, even if I did only make a guest appearance and then snooze under the bed where there was PEACE AND QUIET, thank you. Well, mama copied this from an email and got all the extra stuff from Pinterest, I think, but the subject it THERE–Ellie, the poodle, in her Easter suit. I wish mama had found...

Well, what do you think?  It was NOT easy to find this outfit so I could play Easter Bunny to mama and papa and fill their baskets with candies and such.  And you know what? All these people here munching along like…well…rabbits, were not easy to put up with.  But I survived and now I am going to TAKE OFF THIS SILLY COSTUME AND SNOOZE.  Did...

Oh, boy, it looks like there are going to be a lot of people here on Sunday and I had better pick a GOOD spot in which to disappear.  Those little antros who were here the other night actually got UNDER the bed where I have my little resting place and they snuggled me and talked to me, trying to get me to go downstairs with them and PLAY and I just kept...

What is mama doing in there?  OH, fried artichokes…I think she’s going to freeze them for Easter Sunday.  But I wish she’d throw one my way before that.  Just kidding, I don’t think kitties eat artichokes but you never know from all the amazing kitties I have encountered on blogs.  Maybe there is an artichoke-eating kitty who dips...
