No joke, darlin'.
My favorite kind....

Speaking of which-

My beloved neighborhood girlfriend, Jenny the old Golden [aka Jenootka, to me !] spied me yesterday-
And obligingly dragged her owner across the street, so we could have some 'slutty dogtime'....

The BEST.

O yes, this is exactly it!

I've never seen that Courbet - it's enchanting, and so very French!

I've got to brag. We got a new puppy for Christmas, a golden retriever named Walter. He's a pistol.

Hey congratulations on the new pup, Bozo. I guess I know what will be keeping you busy for the next few months. Maybe Walter should meet Chaya's pal Jenny--or maybe not ;-)

Hi, Lucy! It's always nice to hear from you. Mary, I had never seen this painting either. I was a little suspicious because of that, but I did find it credited several places as a Courbet, and it sure looks like a Courbet, so that's good enough for me. Glad you like it.
