A quiet place to read.

A quiet place to read



there’s nothing like a quiet place to read. i love being engrossed in a good book, something with passion

that just grabs me and won’t let go. a plot filled with surprises, like the sudden appearance of a tart lemon

with a twist, or a spicy avocado that becomes the villain that gives me heartburn.

i do some of my best reading right before dinner- to really put me in the mood. a juicy french tale

a lonely fig meeting a saucy tomato in a hot frying pan, ooh la la! the fireworks go off in my tummy!

at the moment i’m thoroughly enraptured with a romance between a smoked trout and a green cabbage.

coming from different lands and thrown together against their will, forced to mix with raspberry vinegar,

fresh raspberries and rapeseed oil,  i can just taste a gastronomically enriching ending. 




Egg salad…

Egg salad


i love playing the easter bunny and going on egg hunts and collecting a basket full of eggs. and i love egg salad sandwiches with lots of mayo and relish and mustard. but easter was over a week ago, and after a few dozen egg salad sandwiches

i’m ready for a break.

now i’m ready for some steak! hmmmm, a nice thick  slab of filet mignon with black peppercorns and horse radish that almost

burns the nose right off my face!


Sloppy seconds!

i know what it’s like when you’re hungry but dinner is over and all the dishes are put away. i always like something to nibble on before going to sleep.

nothing irritates me more than trying to sleep when i’m thinking about extra helpings of grilled salmon or vegetarian quiche or four-cheese lasagna

with roasted chicken and some yummy custard pie with caramel ice cream.

now i’ve done it! i’m hungry, and dinner isn’t for almost an hour..!


Laundry basket nap!

Fuddles yawns in laundry basket


there’s nothing like a nap in a laundry basket. i highly recommend it! fresh, warm, clean laundry is softer than a flower bed, and i can fall asleep in

just a few seconds. so laundry day is one of my favorite days. i wait in quiet anticipation for the first load to come out of the dryer, and as soon as the full

basket hits the floor i’m on it like a bee on honey!

speaking of honey, I’m excited about a sweet dessert tonight- coconut cream pie with whip cream on top and strawberries on the side and maybe a few cherries too!


WonderCon Anaheim!

Frans & characters poster


frans will be at wondercon in anaheim all day friday and saturday to draw and sign and chat with people.

he’ll be really busy there because it’s supposed to be really crowded. i’m sure there will be a lot of things

to see and do, but i just want to know what kind of food they’ll have there. i can imagine a big fat roasted

chicken slowly rotating over a fire. or a juicy hot dog on a stick with lots of mustard. or a beef kabob with

bell peppers and red onions.

it’s almost enough to make me want to go. but i’ll stay home and be pampered instead.

I saw a bunch of people on tv piled on top of each other. I wonder why- it looked really uncomfortable.  I don’t understand the things people do- they’re always running around doing stuff. I get tired just watching them.

people can learn a lot from a cat. it’s so much more relaxing to take a long nap, and then have something to eat, and then maybe wander around the house a bit before taking another nap.

the only things I like to see piled up are pancakes. a nice big stack of chocolate chip hot cakes smothered with maple syrup topped with a big glop of whipped cream and maybe some strawberries on the side.


Home on the stove range

On the rangei wish i could be a rancher on a big ranch with miles of grazing land for my cattle. all that yummy beef walking around! i would eat hamburgers every day, and steak and beef burritos and sloppy joes and meatloaf and beef stew and beef jerky and barbequed short ribs.

except for some catnaps here and there, i’d never stop eating! …hey, that’s what i do now…



Felix & Jessie-5Felix & Jessie-4i really dislike dogs, and i resent having to share my house with one. everywhere i want to go, he goes too! i just want some peace and quiet, catnapping on the couch. but he goes berserk every time someone comes to the door, barking like it’s the end of the world, giving me a heart attack!

i used to have this place all to myself. life was sweet- the days were long and relaxing. but for some stupid reason, my family decided that wasn’t good enough, so now we have mr. loudmouth. and he’s such a slob! you should see him drinking from his water bowl. just hearing him drink is enough to make me gag! i try to get away from him, but no matter how fast i run, he stays right behind! he thinks i’m playing games- he has no idea how i despise him! and worst of all, he never gets tired- he’s got limitless energy- i can’t possibly keep up with him.

i need to plot how to get rid of him, but for that i need a quiet place to think!! oh, it feels so hopeless..!

maybe some pizza will ease my mind. hmmm, four-cheese with mushrooms and peppers. i’m feeling more relaxed already…



Michelle Obama reads Fuddles!

Michelle Obama reads Fuddlesmichelle obama today read fuddles to a group of school kids! they all laughed at my adventures with the squirrels and the neighbor dog, and how i got lost in the dark, and how i found my family at the end. mrs. obama had a few words to say about my diet, but i’m not on a diet at all!

speaking of food, i’m twitching my tail just thinking about tonight’s dinner- swedish meatballs with thick creamy gravy sauce and sour cream and lots of butter! and i’ll probably have some butterscotch ice cream with almonds and chocolate chips for dessert.

happy april fools day!
