Highlights

My grandma has a new couch...makes the place look more homey. Sun Bathing Beauties....

Took a trip...

Made new friends...(This kitty appeared out of nowhere. I gave him milk and he stuck around all night. He was so ugly, it made him cute. I named him Charlie).
Charlie likes to entertain.

Are all these shots Florida? love your lviing room set up---drums as a end table!!! And your collection of plants are beautiuful--and comfy looking couch...Is that your back yard with the weathered looking stone table and chair---its waiting for some NYers to come eat on it. O and the hammock has my name on it ;) Who are the people? a couple look like Juniors children but the latinos????
Did u go and save another cat? Thats an awesome pic of you holding it.

Second take on the pics. These are photos of people and places you are flying away from. Your nieces in Jersey...And the latinos are from Hondourus? As is the stone table and kitty.
But the living room is yours? though why is Max there? the windows are too large to be Astoria --maybe a loft somewhere? And that is not Max. Hum...

The shots are: My Grandma's living room IN Astoria, Junior's children, Miami Florida BBQ (some of Anthony's cousins and cousins' kids) and the little wanderer whom I gave milk and attention to.

I am blown away by your photographic abilites. Oh my goodness! Everything is so gorgeous - and you're photogenic too. Must give credit to both your eye and the fabulous camera. Love love love all these pics! Did I mention I love them!

Gata said...

But I need to add...you know the Wayans brothers' new movie with the man pretending to be a baby? That popped into my head when I saw Charlie.

Wow thanx Gata. Little Charlie is a survivor, I didn't find his mother anywhere and I felt his tiny ribs. :(

I begged someone to take him in, but nobody here likes cats, except the kids.

Gata, how dare you make fun of Charlie! Yes, he has HUGE ears, but cuteness potential!

I find Charlie to have character. Of course I am one who finds beauty in weird looking creatures. Their addity adding to their appeal.
So I figured out the living room based on the tail end of the floor picture. I was thrown off by the large windows.
I agree with gata on your photographic abilites and photogenic self. I have a whole set of Le Sans Souci proofs to qualify that. Actually some of them cropped would be lovely. Especially some sepia ones I took and never shared. I'll post later---cropped.
Hey--I need a job preferably using the computer.
Do I take up too much space on others blogs?

Charlie is adorable though I think (unfortunately) I would have been afraid of him in person and would not have taken care of him. Ok, maybe I would have left some food but definitely would not have touched him. Strays have always scared me a bit.

Lovely pics, as usual.

I just realized what Charlie looks like: A GREMLIN!

He could be Gizmo's brother or something.

I just had to laugh at all the comments! Steph, you are not taking too much space, so don't worry. What are comments for?

Anyway, Charlie does look like a gremlin! I cracked up at your comment that said you would have been afraid of him...

Actually all the mothers there were screaming at their kids telling them not to touch the filthy animal. Ha ha ha ha....."Deja lo! Esta Sucio!"

I have become a crazy animal person. You know, the type that pick up scary looking creatures and insist on getting them food and water and finding them a home.

Well, I left Charlie right where I found him. I felt bad because he got used to people and was purring when I pet him. So I'm not such a crazy animal person after all, if I was able to leave him. Ha.

BonBon said...

NO!! You left him? After all that? Poor ugly kitty :(
Wow: lots of feedback from this post, Marie.
I like the pics too, and I totally would have played with the ugly kitty...but yeah, if you start picking up every stray cat you'll never stop; there's just too many. I had to stop at 3 and really even that's excessive for an apartment. I see cats all the time on the street and pet them and then just have to detach myself and walk away. Only the Kingdom will make all animals and humans ok...SIGH.
