My European Vacation

May 22, 2013

I’ve heard, from several quarters, a request for pictures of our recent sojourn through the heart of Western Europe. We took a river cruise from Switzerland to the Netherlands on this ship:


and the cruise was called “Castles on the Rhine.” Behold:


… a castle on the Rhine. Marksburg Castle to be exact. But the reason I’ve been reluctant to comply with this perfectly reasonable request is that, well, I don’t take many pictures when I’m traveling, and the things I take pictures of are somewhat idiosyncratic. If you click through, you’ll see what I mean.

He’s nice

January 5, 2011

We are acquainted with a certain Guinea Pig, who, in an effort to increase GP visibility in the World at large, and also, perhaps, thinking that there would be some VEGETABLES available as a reward, entered, with the help of his Twenty-Toed Giant, a certain Competition, held by the San Francisco Chronicle’s pet columnist, to celebrate the Holiday Season, to wit: the Second Annual Naughty-or-Nice Photo Contest.

Rowan is a guinea pig. Rowan is nice. Rowan eats his fruits and vegetables. Always.

We’ve reproduced our nibbly friend’s photographic Image, as it was published on the SFGate Website, above, but if you’re inclined to see the Original for yourself, you may go here. You will, however, have to scroll almost all the way down to the Bottom of the Post. Why? Because he (almost) won! In point of fact, he finished as one of three Runners-up, and will shortly be receiving a Gift Certificate to a GIANT pet supply Emporium. Congratulations Rowan! CARROTS and CELERY all around!

Happy New Year, Fire Hydrant!
