I hope they used strong glue!

On my walk through the neighborhood today I explored several new streets and found something very unusual.

Imagine the surprise of the family who live in the big house when they came home and discovered someone had attached a little blue house to their wall!

I hope they used strong glue!

I met Jack today

I saw Jack on my walk to the bread shop this morning. He was sitting by the kerb enjoying the lovely warm sunshine.

Jack works for the tire man and is very strong. Tall person told me that he can lift 1.5 tons. I’m not surprised, he spends most of the day ‘pumping iron’.

I wonder if this is how Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger began his career?

Hmm, perhaps Jack will also become a Hollywood action film icon and politician.

Jack’s boss was not in his tire shop but with Jack guarding the tires I knew everything would be safe.

Enjoy the sunshine Jack and daydream about Hollywood!

You will get square eyes!

I saw something very strange on my walk through the neighborhood today. I pointed it out to the tall person and he said it was an old TV set.

I stayed there for a while and watched a wildlife program about a black dog with square eyes that liked to eat straw but I think the dog was tired because it didn’t move. I wanted to change the channel but the tall person said if I watch TV all day I will get square eyes. Hmm, like the dog on the television I suppose.

I can see my house from Eugene’s house!

You may remember that there is an old abandoned American jeep in my neighborhood. I call him Eugene. I haven’t been to see him for a while and suggested to the tall person that we go and make sure he is okay.

Eugene lives on a sidewalk at the top of a hill on the other side of the valley from my house. He doesn’t actually have a house. He’s the rugged outdoor type and prefers to feel the sun and the rain and the gentle breeze on his olive green skin.

Anyway, he was snoozing in the sunshine when we got there so we didn’t wake him up.

As we turned to head home the tall person said that we can see our house from here and sure enough there was our house on the other side of the valley.

It’s in the center of the picture. If you look carefully you can see the white door that leads out to the toy room balcony where I sit with my kitten, Barnaby. You can also see the tall tree that stands behind my house. Tall person looks for that if he gets lost when we are walking in the maze of narrow lanes that make up our neighborhood.

Barnaby! Barnaby! Can you see me!

No answer.

Hmm, I think he is asleep on duty.

The baker takes a break from E.R.

We went to the pet shop today because Barnaby and me needed more ‘fuel’. Tall person said that we were both running on empty. That might explain the strange gurgling noises I heard in my tummy this morning!

Anyway, after ‘re-fueling’ we walked further down Marjanishvili Street because the tall person wanted to take some photographs of the beautiful Russian Orthdox church.

Whilst I was waiting for him I noticed a man sitting on a bench. He was dressed all in white, which is probably very comfortable in this hot weather. I have seen people dressed in similar clothes on TV and knew that he must be a medical man, possibly a surgeon.

Wow, he is probably in the middle of a life saving operation and popped outside for a quick break.

I wonder if the man he is talking to is at the head of a queue for operations. He looks very healthy though so perhaps he just stopped to chat with the surgeon.

I pointed the man out to the tall person when he returned from taking photographs of the church and was very surprised when he told me that the man is in fact a baker and not a surgeon.

Hmm, if he is a baker why is he masquerading as a surgeon? That could be very confusing. I’m sure people in need of medical attention would be very surprised to be prescribed a loaf of bread.

Invasion of the green hairy caterpillars!

On this morning’s walk I was surprised and slightly alarmed to see that my neighborhood has been invaded by hundreds of giant green hairy caterpillars.

I mentioned this to the tall person and he said that they are catkins, slim cylindrical flower clusters, that have fallen from the trees.

Ah, so they are not the larval form of members of the order Lepidoptera (the insect order comprising butterflies and moths).

That’s a relief!
