Pay no attention to that bush, moving around over there by that tree, it's just a bush. Nothing to look twice at. Nothing to be alarmed about. This looks like it could be gravy. I smell varmint poontang, and the only good varmint poontang is dead varmint poontang. FREEZE GOPHER!!!

    • Great to hear from you Cathy and Ric. Glad you are following us. We spent two days in Portofino and had a wonderful time. It is so beautiful. At night, after the tourists go home, the harbor is lovely and peaceful. I love your idea of collecting plates from restaurants you visit. That is so cool. By the way, please accept my condolences on the loss of John Bruch. He was always so kind to me. I loved the big bear! –Norm
