Get a load of these cats. They're solid.

Here's a link to cheer up Lo.

An old sketchbook page which my little daughter (then) decided to add her own stuff. She did great drawings and diagrams.

The boob lady's husband  is painting his garden wall today. He is dressed in what the colonials called "whites", i.e, his shirt and shorts are of such dazzling whiteness they positively glow as if under U.V. light. There is not a speck of paint on him. Indeed, if you were to meet him you would gladly allow him to operate on you.

Yesterday, the town celebrated the first day of fiestas by curiously closing the main road and streaming the traffic off into the two small sliproads. The main road filled with the assasin mothers (because of their driving skills) and many, many water based games. It was quite curious, not a man is sight.
The struggling drivers heading South or to Barcelona, were not amused by the traffic arrangements. But the locals are in party mode. Fireworks tonight and Paco and Jan the Van opening things at midnight with wailing harmonica and guitar.
 Arthur will claw his way up the back of the sofa as always. Is there valium for dogs? Can't leave him alone on a night like this.

Only 34 outside...


  1. Rosie, my dear.....thanks for the jitterbugs and Pete Smith (I remember him). Believe it or not I was a jitterbug, not quite as frantic or talented as those in the was a fun dance.

    And you are a treasure.

  2. Love the little raccoon/hedgehog fellow with the little girl. Definitely children's book characters.

  3. Lo, glad you are feeling better.

    Tattered. The little hedghog fellow was from a family called the Googlies which I did for my small daughter and then along came "Google". I still haven't thought of a different name for them. They live in pine trees.

  4. oh, Those have so much character. My favorite is the confused woman in the middle. I start most of my mornings looking like that

  5. I look like that all day.
