That’s Sunday for you

Right now he is at it again, just the pose is a little different. While Bestia relaxes on “his” sofa, let’s have a look at the recent activity on my blog. The past week was quite green, as is everything around me in April. There were: A look at surprisingly orderly Italian port city Civitavecchia; three…

Happy 4th birthday, Bestia!

Again a year went by and today celebrates my friend here. It came as a bit of a surprise amid running around, eating healthy with the visitor (still!) and editing too many photos, but today is Bestia’s birthday! He is older, wiser, calmer and more obedient. He has learnt that it pays off to do what…

Dog, moon, sis and minestrone

A few serene images from a few evenings ago and a reason why I won’t be going through your posts and posting my own so much these days. Our pack got bigger. And we’re busy eating healthy. And a spa on Sunday. Ahhh. It’s hard-knock life. Photo: © signature mmm

Three cool cats

Three cats want you to observe them fondly. Every cat gets three snaps. The first one is a neighbour just around the corner, a little bestia-weary, even though he wouldn’t hurt it. The second was caught in action next to the Orbetello lagoon. It looks it has found a shortcut (shortcat?) to the birds and the…

WPC: Easy peasy being green

Green is easily my favourite colour. Ask anybody. And dogs are my favourite animals. Something happened on this day in 1999, and some green things happened ten years ago. Let’s start with these. First of all, ten years ago I stopped smoking after twenty years and two packs a day, which is still the biggest…

To spring, poetry and donkeys

Today, in order to celebrate a few things, a donkey and a man. Not only did spring decide we were worthy of it once again, today is also World Poetry Day. If you are lucky, you are able to pay your coffee with a poem in certain places in Slovenia, courtesy of a shrewd sponsor…

Birdland

Welcome to the architecturally acclaimed bird sanctuary, nature reserve Škocjanski zatok on the Slovenian coast. I’ve posted images from here already, for example this one: In order to transpose the feeling I had those couple of hours in December as we were strolling around, however, more is needed. And as always, I wish to thank…

May

May I interest you in twelve images from last May for my calendar 2016? It is my birthday month, that’s why it’s probably my favourite. And the nature plays along too. ADD-IT: I’ve just realised that I only posted ten photos, rather than my usual 12 as I did for other months. Fixing that with…

Birds’ wedding planner

In Slovenia it’s St. Gregory’s today, the day when birds get married. More on this pagan holiday which we call “Gregorjevo” here. It’s St. Valentine’s Day, Slovenian-style. I had planned to post other bird photos, but today as I went to buy groceries by the lagoon, as one does, certain aviators demanded attention. They can be…

Happy March 8!

Throwing flowers at favourite women because it’s today. They are coming over too, my two favourite women, first one and then the other. Party! And now let’s see how spring flowers come rolling in around here. No matter how many marches it takes, before we’re allowed to be free. Photo: © signature mmm

Not for a man

The title is part of a joke which I shall post at the end so that you’ll have to read it all. I have never been a huge fan of comics, that is stand-up comedians, but whenever I encounter one I tend to give it a shot. The one I remember the most is Tim…

Beasts and full moon

On a full moon you can understand what beasts are saying, or so they say (okay, I’m saying it now). But it might be that they are just laughing at us. The last time I posted the full moon, we had a score to settle with a different kind of beast. It’s a work in progress….
