My new leaning place

You may recall that I recently optimized my leaning.

When I want to lean to the left I go here……

and when I want to lean to the right I go here……

However, because my leaning place is static I always have the same view.

I have been thinking about this and have come up with a solution that provides me with a variety of views.

So when I feel like leaning and looking at a different view I go and find my mobile leaning place…….

That’s lovely little person….10 more minutes and we’ll move 10 feet to the left.

Dancing in the rain

Yesterday, the tall person, De and the little person went to Djansug Kakhidze Gardens, which are situated just off the recently renovated Agmashenebli Avenue.

The garden was opened last year and two beautiful bronze statues were recently erected at the entrance to the garden.

The statues are of Iliko Sukhishvili and his wife Nino Ramishvili, founders of the Georgian National Ballet. It is due to their efforts that Georgian national dancing and music has become known in many parts of the world. 

A performance by the Georgian National Ballet’s dancers in which the female dancers, wearing long skirts, appear to glide across the floor was an inspiration for writer Terry Nation in creating the Daleks for the television series Doctor Who.

Do you want to dress like an Englishman or woman?

On today’s walk we found this amazing shop in our neighborhood.

Being English, the tall person was obviously attracted to it because it proudly displayed the Union Jack flag.

Fortunately, De was with us and translated the Georgian language sign, which says, “High Quality Secondhand Clothes From England.”

Great! Now the tall person knows where to go if he needs a new bowler hat or umbrella.

Ultimate home security!

On my walk today I saw a remarkable example of enhanced home security.

This homeowner obviously takes security very seriously. In addition to barred windows he has also installed an impregnable front door. Nothing but a tank is going to break through that!

I wonder how the people who live in the house get in and out?

Hmm, I think I may have spotted a significant flaw in an otherwise perfect home security solution.

Barnaby says thank you!

Barnaby asked me to thank everyone for their get well wishes and lovely messages.

He is feeling much better today and we were able to have a chat about how he came to be attacked.

He said that he had met an adult tom cat in the street and went to say hello but the cat attacked him, scratching his ear and the top of his nose. He was taken completely by surprise and could not defend himself against the stronger cat so he ran home as fast as he could.

He showed me where the cat had scratched his nose. Ouch!

Toy car?

I saw this fantastic 1:1 scale model of a Soviet era Zhiguli car today. The detail was amazing.

It looked so real. It was hard to imagine that it was made from a plastic scale model kit.

I pointed it out to the tall person and he said it was a real car and not a model.

Hmm, if it is not a model car why does its number plate say it is a ‘TOY.’

Attacked by bigger boys!

My kitten, Barnaby, got out of the yard yesterday evening and didn’t come home at bedtime. We went looking for him but couldn’t find him.

We were all very upset and I went to sleep feeling very sad.

At 4.15 a.m. I heard a sound outside and immediately alerted the tall person.

When he opened the back door I was relieved to see my little Barnaby.

He was very pleased to see us.

He had clearly been roughed up and had a small cut beneath one of his eyes.

Tall person administered some first aid and then Barnaby curled up against me and fell asleep.

He has been very subdued this morning and spent most of the time asleep on his favorite red chair. I will have a chat with him later and remind him that the streets can be very mean and he needs to stay away from bigger boys.

Trending now!

Until the tall person pointed it out to me I had no idea that I have become a huge influence on trees.

Can you see any similarity between this tree and me?

Yes. The trees in my neighborhood have started to wear white socks, just like me.

The tall person said that my white socks must be a trending topic. He explained that trending topics become popular either through a concerted effort by users or because of an event that prompts people (or trees) to talk about one specific topic.

Wow! I had no idea that trees talked about me or were such dedicated followers of fashion!
