Birds of a Feather?

Posted by on Jun 30, 2017 | 21 comments

Do you think those guys are going to agree on ANYTHING? Well, our French president and out USA president are meeting for fireworks for July 14th. And there should be plenty to go around. At least the food will be great!  Lucky Trump. Bastille Day here is really quite wonderful with the most beautiful feu d’artifice (artificial fire=fireworks) over...

Dreaming of a home for Sabrina… Well, mama’s really close friend sent her a lovely present for next month’s event (no, she’s not telling—birthdays are like any other day around here, wonderful, so no need to celebrate), which is that mama was given the care and feeding of Sabrina for one month, but the organization will keep...

Lemon Bonanza

Posted by on Jun 27, 2017 | 12 comments

I was resting and now I am awake and I am NOT squeezing lemons, okay? Now, probably all of you know about freezing lemon or lime juice, but mama had never done it, preferring to just squeeze her stash as they dropped and use them in cooking for pasta sauces or limoncello or chutney (my favourite because I love to smell it cooking!), but after talking with...

Happy Jan Day

Hey, we didn’t know it was Jan’s birthday at the Funny Farm! Happy, happy birthday, Jan. I’m sure those furries around you are taking good care of you today.  Just blow out the candles and have many more birthdays to make us all happy.          ...

Loulou, your papa is SO smart! Oh, boy, is mama happy.  You won’t believe this but she has been asking EVERYONE, including Apple (!) for YEARS how to choose certain photos from her IPhone for transfer to her PC and NO ONE knew how to stop the automatic download that goes so fast that by the time you click the STOP button, you have downloaded a...

Yes, We Have No Tomatoes

Posted by on Jun 24, 2017 | 12 comments

…la, la, la, we have no tomatoes today! Well, the garden may as well look like the dirt above even if this is at the beginning of last season.  Mama planted six tomatoes and the heat wiped them out (along with a helper who is just learning tomatoes from weeds…) and they looked like THIS last year. This year they look like this: Sort of...

Kitties Who Ke ke ke ke?

Posted by on Jun 23, 2017 | 15 comments

Well, am I about to speak or what?  Probably or what… I may have put this in before but someone sent me another site on how kitties speak and I can’t find the email! So am using this one. I’m trying to find words to vent my peeves at being abandoned.  Also to talk to birdies. Evidently when I’m out checking out the birdbath and see...

National Selfie Day?  Well, here’s mine, doing what I do best. OH, NO, not more culture! Well, for the life of me, I have no idea why they chose ‘vulture’ for the word to go with ‘culture’ other than it’s the only one that rhymes, haha. But, mama and papa (who are back, by the way–more on that later) sent me some...

Welcome Mat

Welcome Mat

Posted by on Jun 21, 2017 | 10 comments

Maybe I should put the mat outside THIS door to use after stamping around in the garden dirt. I think you are supposed to put out something like that when whoever it is went away comes back or maybe for a new kitty or doggy moving into your neighbourhood but I couldn’t find one around here. I think it’s actually a real mat for wiping feet, etc....

LISTEN UP, YOU GUYS! Well, THEY are on the way back and here’s my plan for THEIR return so I hope THEY are reading this. Or else. Clean my outdoor watering hole because the riot we had on Sunday may have, er, muddied the waters a bit. Wash food and water bowls spotless and fill with the appropriate ITALIANTREATS you have brought me (ciambelle,...

Juneteenth And Freedom

Juneteenth And Freedom

Posted by on Jun 19, 2017 | 14 comments

I’m thinking a lot about today and how very important it is. Well, today, the 19th of June, Juneteenth, is a very special day in the lives of former black slaves in Texas and the southern states in 1865, as you will see on Wikipedia. But as a tribute to and celebration of this very important day, mama wanted to you to hear one of the songs that is...

So are you party animals out there ready for the big bash? Maybe fete, but also fate, if I may say so. First of all, it’s Papa’s Day and Happy Papa’s Day to papas everywhere.  I sure am happy I have mine. So is mama, I might add. It’s just lucky that some of my friends were in town to help me have this little gathering before THEY...

Well, you may not be interested in this, but mama has prism vision, which sound kinda nesat, but which means seeing double, which means if she watches the Roma soccer team matches, she sees 44 players on the field, instead of 22, which means 88 gorgeous legs, HAHA. Not funny, I know, but if you have double vision (weak eye muscle–comes sometimes...

Do I look nude to you? Well, actually, I am the only one who can really say I am not…er…exactly dressed, when I eat, but neither am I totally nude.  With this heat, to eat in the buff would be a pleasure!  I’ve never understood why I couldn’t start a business for kitty suits that unzip and can be put away until winter. ...

Well, I’m counting the days.  Six to go…I think I’ll send them one of those Return Envelopes (a BIG ONE) so they can get back without paying postage, haha. BUT, oh am I having fun with my Kitty Whisperer.  She sent mama a picture of me on the guest bed (NOT MAMA’S BED, heh, heh) and I just know mama is grinding her teeth over that...

TOO HOT TO TROT! Whoa, mama says it’s about 85 where she is and here I am basking in coolish weather and no smog, no cars, no TOURISTS blocking the streets and wandering into the taxi lanes without looking.  Maybe Rome is the new California, haha.  You walk where you want in California and if cars don’t like it, they can lump it. I...

Well, that’s a word mama uses for anything that makes her heart go pitty-pat.  As in some of the incredibly darling photos on other blogs, which, if I could, I would publish here, but there are just too many. And then there are some that really puzzle me.  Raena Belle on Dezisworld seems to have BLUE whites to her eyes!!! I guess that’s just...

Here I am being THIN. Or trying to be… Well, they say you can’t be too rich or too thin (I like that part, haha, it’ll never happen to me), but you can be TOO NICE!  This darling doggy was just too sweet to be trained to find criminals and such, unlike his long line of brilliant criminal-finding family, and so wound up being even more...

DO NOT GIVE ME POLITICAL NEWS UNTIL IT’S OVER!!! I’m too stressed as it is by the weather changing. Well, headlines are full of many surprises in political spheres and I’m not going there…aren’t you relieved, haha? I just wish to thank everyone for their concern about my new distant friend, Bolt, and assure you that he will...

Merci. Grazie. Thank you. Well, first mama wants thank all of you who are sending such sweet comments of concern about little Bolt.  He is in a safe place for the summer and in the fall will probably get a nice big protected garden cage with a little corner house when he can get out of the rain.  Did you know that turtles hate rain?  Maybe that’s why...
