One Potato Two Potato

‘ Jean gave us WHAT?  More potatoes? WOW! Potato salad here we come–2 pounds boiled new potatoes until tender, then mashed coarse with chopped sweet onion, cilantro, small bit of grilled red peppers (peeled–no burps, haha) diced fine, lemon juice, mayo, moutarde a l’ancienne (the one with speckles in it), little cornichons (if you...

It’s Jean-etic

Posted by on Jul 25, 2017 | 8 comments

  Well, if you say so.  But does that mean I am jean-etically deficient if I love attacking papa’s Levis?  I don’t think so.  I think it means I have originality and verve and can play with something other than that silly mouse mama keeps throwing in the air, up and down, up and down.  Doesn’t she KNOW that I KNOW that it’s not...

WHOA…I smell pizza cooking!!! I’m outta here… Hey, mama took the advice of a commenter to think about giving me some pizza because she said that kitties love pizza! I’ve never gotten any on Sunday night, only the tomato sauce! Well, actually, not even that because it has a small bit of onion in it and evidently we don’t eat...

Today the sun is out so I’m having a BALL, haha. Well, you might remember that mama put a goat site on MY blog one day, and I have to admit they were pretty cute, even really beautiful with their lovely sweet faces (what does a goat have–face, muzzle, mug, goat-ee?) so I thought I’d put in a funny about goats that mama found in the French...

Tomato Truth

Tomato Truth

Posted by on Jul 22, 2017 | 20 comments

Hey, you remember that just a few weeks ago mama was lamenting her loss of tomato seedlings and saying that nothing was growing properly and then she’d tear her hair and wail, “NO TOMATOES THIS YEAR–wah, wah” and all those things she said about having an empty garden for the first time in her life?  Remember that? Well–what do...

Here’s what I think of that humongous thang on the sea that blocked the horizon the other day. But how lovely is this little sailing ship.  Nice lines, huh, and romantical looking.  All the passengers probably look like The Great Gatsby, whoever he was. Big improvement over that monstrosity, no? And hundreds of tourist anthros are actually swimming...

OH, boy, a good morning stretch starts the day off so well.  I think stretching is really the best thing a kitty can do to start working on the roly poly parts, don’t you?  And make your anthro do them, too.  In my case, mama is the one who…er…sort of agreed with the V-E-T about my figgah…. Next, try letting out a big...

Uh, oh, mama’s calling me to take some shots of our neighbor’s masterpiece. BEFORE – Late spring (naturally I did NOT take this today, haha. I have a stash of photos for all occasions). AFTER – NOW! THE GURU Well, I know you’ve seen this spectacular garden in other blogs, but each year is a marvel and it’s what I gaze at...

Hey, I’m just here minding my own business, practicing my rabbit kicks, and I smell something really good being mixed up in the kitchen. Uh, oh, mama’s making ravioli and I guess this was an unplanned Art Shot with her fingers reflected in the pasta maker, haha.  She gave me a tiny piece of dough but it’s not my gig. Now when she puts a...

Okay, okay, which one is the fake Loulou?  Mama went to our open market early the other morning and saw this little critter snoozing at one of the sellers’ booths…this and THESE: Hey, they are awfully cute, no?  And mama actually bought one a few years ago for a friend who couldn’t have a kitty and so now she has a fake one as her little...

Okay, okay, that’s it for the moon.   Onward and upward I always say, but er…not so much upward as snooze-ward. Around here the summer is really upon us and mama and papa walk in the early morning and see things they might have missed later in the day.  Like this HUMONGOUS MONSTROSITY that looked as if aliens are invading in a space thingy. ...

Dreaming of goats… Well, mama’s friend, Anne, sent this really lovely website of a photographer who did a series of really amazing GOATS! I know this is a kitty blog and does at times allow doggies to grace its pages, but these goats are remarkable.  Actually, we would love to have one around here to take care of the very few weeds and leave a...

Well, let’s hear it for Bastille Day.  Bravo for the French who revolted against oppression as the rich got richer and the poor got poorer.  Sounds familiar. But today we celebrate, even though the fireworks are next door in a little town 2 km. up the road.  But I think those planes are going to fly over with red, white and blue smoke, just like the...

I know, I know, you must be getting tired of these look-alikes, but mama really couldn’t resist THIS one. A Papillon (butterfly), see below, and mixed with who knows what, but that little devil is deception personified.  Mama said, “Oh, you cute little adorable thing, oh, you little mignonne doggy” and the doggy’s tale wagged and...

Well, I’ve been rollin’ around on these kiwi leaves that mama cut yesterday.  You have to take off the long runners so the fruit will develop and not be robbed of flavour, whatever that is.  This kiwi thing is a new high, so to speak… I wish I knew what’s in this stuff.  Hey, now we know!!! I have to say, my nip bed looks pretty...

Well, mama says that we share something all around the world and it’s the sun in the morning and the moon at night and this is ours over the last few days…so beautiful coming up (or we, turning toward it!) over the Chateau St. Elme that looks over our little ville. So perhaps we could share other things as well… like good will and...

Okay, okay, here we go again with the Loulou Lookalikes!  Are you out of your MINDS?  I look like a French bulldog just about as much as I look like yesterday’s MOUSE!  Why is it that mama is obsesses with black and white DOGS (and kitties, for that matter).  What’s black and white and read all over? My Passport ID photo, haha. What? Mama wants...

So why are you sneaking up on me when I am about to GROOM my little body? Well, actually, my name is NOT Sheba and never will be, but since the only word I could think of with ‘bath’ in it was that one, I used it.  I suppose I could have used ‘bathmat’ or ‘bathysphere’, whatever those are, but I sort of liked the image...

Hey, mama’s been out walking around our ville and looking at the incredible flowers that are found on all of the little streets…so pretty.  I wanted to go but she forgot me outside and I’ve been trying to get papa to let me in for about…well…a long time.  I think it has been about 2 minutes so far and that’s a very long...
