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. These are the ships that caused so much damage in the waters around Venice, Italy and now they are banned, I think. I hope.
This thing is about 15 stories high and filled with tourists that this tiny burg cannot handle. They are not stopping, I’m sure, because there’s nowhere to dock, thank heaven. But we probably look pretty cute from those decks!
One of mama’s “Living Shadows” series…oh, boy…she’s off the deep end, that’s for sure. And to think that papa POSES for these things!
One of several little markets in our town. Bottom row, second from left, pimientos de padron from Spain. Tiny little sweet peppers that you sauté whole in a hot pan until charred on the outside and then sprinkle with coarse salt. I mentioned this the other day but this year they are SOOOOO good. Not that I eat those things but I love smelling them as they sizzle.
Uh, oh, the remains of a fougasse, the bread that inspired mama’s bakery. Can’t imagine who tore off that other part and had it with fresh peaches…
SO where is MY breakfast, huh, huh?
