I think we are all cute, but if anybody requests, I’ll remove the photo.

    These are great. Such fun and warmth. Good to see your pup isn’t relegated to the floor.

    1. Thanks, Dan! It was not meant this way: for a longest time he knew that only front paws were allowed up, but then the hunters came and once he was let up to snuggle that one time, he understood immediately there was no going back.

        Yeah, there’s no going back once they’ve been on the bed.

    1. Hhahahah, you do, Carol? In what way? Of my glorious windy hair? Of my parents? 😀 I know, they are cool. Surely not of the photos. Ohh, I know, of the dog! I’d be like him right now too. 😉

        Your photos and stories touch a deep chord in me. Yes, I am jealous of your family, you are so lucky to have them, and all your wonderful friends. You have a gift of life you bring to your blog that I love!!

      2. ❤ Nice of you to say so, Carol. All my life I've been trying to embrace the tendency of north Americans to express jealousy in this straight-forward way. In Slovenia, probably they are all jealous too but ashamed to admit it. 😀 Anyway, please, don't be jealous, just come over to my blog as often as you wish and we can have a party together.

      I guess the verve with which you express yourself makes me feel jealous, but not in a bad way. That was just my first reaction and I typed it out. Maybe others feel that way but do not express it. My mom was Italian and all feelings were expressed!! (actually Sicilian)

      1. Oh, yes, I’m sure it’s healthier this way. And I knew it wasn’t meant in a bad way. Might be that I’m in Italy also for this reason: to let it out. But also it’s possible that you were jealous of the grandmother in the last photo. 😉 (Joooke!)

  10. Some of the subjects you know, but others are strangers, right? How do you approach the latter? I’m always so clumsy doing it 🙂 -Verne

    1. Oh, no no, these are all very familiar, if not family than the beloved and friends. The mother in the lake with the son is one of my oldest friends, as is the One Who Isn’t There. The hairdresser and her grandma are our frequent travelling companions. I would have a problem zooming in on someone unknown like that. I include strangers as the backdrop to street scenes or to aid the perspective. Sometimes I see somebody really sweet or doing something interesting and my camera sneaks a peek (oooh, shudders) but I feel bad after that :D. I have never in my life asked permission to take a photo of a stranger (but some were clearly posing on their own).
