In Memoriam

I had to say goodbye to three little beautiful, but very different souls within 6 months and thought that a few words honoring my sweet companions might alleviate the huge sens of loss that I am feeling today after saying goodbye to the last one 24 hours ago.

Clicquot was adopted in 2005 at the age of 9 weeks. It was love at first sight, but she was a fragile one. From feline herpes to flee allergy – there was always something. About two years ago, her kidneys started failing and it became time to say goodbye. That last night, I blew THC on her little face, hoping to make her feel a bit better. She bounced right back and the doctors were amazed. However, we knew that the kidneys would not get better and they did not. She managed to last 4 weeks after we left the only home she has known, but then her little body gave up. She was surrounded by a sweet vet and her two mothers and it was very peaceful. Rest In Peace, sweet Clicquot, forever La Grande Dame. Saying goodbye to you yesterday was truly heartbreaking.

Nobody knows where Saladin came from. He started showing up around 2006 or 2007 and it took me a couple of years just to get close to him. One day, he just gave up and threw himself on his back, thus offering me belly and throat. I have never met a more affectionate cat, nor a more annoying one. The drooling in the ear at 4 am, the very loud meowing and the constant need for attention could be a challenge, but when he stared at you adoringly, my heart swelled up and we would spoon the night away. He was probably around 20 at the end, deaf and with a good dose of dementia, but what a loving soul.

MeiMei started showing up in 2010 with Saladin. He was small and friendly and I was convinced that it was a girl, as the two were very loving towards each other. He got the name which means little sister in Mandarin, probably not the best name for a little boy who desperately wanted to meet a mate in the spring. It turns out he was leading a double life as Chandler and I suspect he may have picked other restaurants, too, but I loved having him. MeiMei was a big lover of other critters and would wait for the raccoons, possums and skunks every night for dinner time. He sadly disappeared around June.

Thank you for all the love, my sweet fur babies. Let’s hope that reincarnation thing works! Namaste.

Missing Spring in Napa!

Who would have guessed in early March that this was the last visit to the Wine Country before we started Sheltering in Place, or SIP’ing , as I prefer to call it (no pun intended, of course)!  Spring had already started, but it pains me to have missed the gorgeous mustards and cherry blossoms this year!

Wine Hug
Please stay safe and healthy – we are all in this together!

Beach Blanket Babylon

snap 2019-01-23 at 12.25.42

“Beach Blanket Babylon, San Francisco’s hilarious pop culture musical revue, is the perfect night out with friends. Celebrating over 16,000 performances and seen by over six million people from around the world, this internationally acclaimed production continues to delight audiences at Club Fugazi in San Francisco’s North Beach district with its spectacular costumes and outrageously gigantic hats!

Beach Blanket Babylon follows Snow White as she takes a fast-paced journey around the world in search of her “Prince Charming.”  Along the way she encounters a star-studded, ever-changing line-up of hilarious pop culture characters, including Donald and Melania Trump, Kim Jong-un, Colin Kaepernick, Vladimir Putin, Lady Gaga, Wonder Woman, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Sarah Huckabee, Ivanka Trump, Serena Williams, Barack and Michelle Obama, Beyoncé, Kanye West, Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, Taylor Swift, Oprah, Prince Harry and Meghan, and the Golden State Warriors.”

If you’re going to San Francisco, do not miss this absolute gem in the middle of North Beach.  I must have seen it 15 times over the past 21 years.  Here is the link to their website:  https://www.beachblanketbabylon.com/

Bordeaux Trip #4

Outside Bordeaux – The Hourtin Lake and the Atlantic Ocean

Only 1 hour from Bordeaux, or a straight shot to the West from Chateau Mouton Rothschild, you will find Hourtin with its lake and the beautiful Atlantic Coast.  Not as populated or affluent as Cap Ferret or Arcachon, it is a beautifully peaceful destination for getting out of the City of Bordeaux.

 

Bordeaux Trip #3

Bordeaux by Night:

Spring Time in Scandinavia

I have never seen weather like this in May!  As a child in Stockholm, my mother would almost have to revive me after my swimming lessons in 16 degrees Celsius, but this year, everybody in Copenhagen and Stockholm was enjoying the weather and the water!
