Having something to look forward to

December 2, 2020

The news just keeps getting worse and worse. So I try to have something to look forward to every day. The latest is Season 4 of The Crown. As you can see, our “guys” like watching this show as well. Sir Oliver loves seeing his fellow Palace Guards; Sir Angus loves seeing his fellow Balmoral […]

Some cuteness to brighten your day

November 18, 2020

The news just keeps getting more and more depressing. Between the election and the COVID, there doesn’t seem to be any good news. So, this week, I thought I would focus on something to make you all smile. We all need to smile more these days. As most of you know, Mr. Ken and I […]

Time for a new hobby

October 7, 2020

Sometimes I think this COVID thing will last forever. It certainly seems that way. Here is a typical day for me: Went for a walk. Ate a donut (in place of my usual whole wheat toast and organic peanut butter). Hey, desperate times call for desperate measures. Called to thank my friend Lisa, who had […]

Happy Sir Oliver Day!

September 9, 2020

With the continuing barrage of bad news these days, we must find reasons to celebrate. For us, we just finished celebrating Sir Oliver Day. It was a year ago on September 4, when we “adopted” Sir Oliver from the Buckingham Palace Gift Shop (that’s in London, in case you all didn’t know). So we had […]

Road trip!

So Mr. Ken and I decided to venture out to Rhode Island last week. I have a cousin who recently moved there and we are very close. We felt comfortable going to visit him because he has been staying at home, leaving home only to go for walks and to the grocery store. Since this […]

Comments Off on Sir Oliver and Sir Angus

There’s been more excitement at our house! I’d like to introduce everyone to Sir Angus, who is Sir Oliver’s cousin from Scotland! He’s part of the piper guard that protects the Royal family at their Balmoral estate in Scotland. Yes, he plays the bagpipes sometimes! Note his very sharp uniform including the official plaid kilt!

The adventures of Sir Oliver – Part 2

Yes, there are more adventures of our beloved Sir Oliver! 1. Sir Oliver watching his favorite show, “The Crown.” Sir Oliver is a bit homesick for London. He especially loves seeing his beloved Queen Elizabeth and his original home, Buckingham Palace. 2. Sir Oliver watching the little birds at the bird feeder. The little birds […]

The London adventure – Part 7

November 20, 2019

Oh no, another post about London. I’ve had to resort to posting mainly pictures this week since I have been swamped with my project work. (And Mr. Ken hasn’t done anything funny lately for me to write about.) I still miss London and wish we were back there. I have to say our trip to […]

The definition of fine dining

November 6, 2019

You might say that I am very much a traditionalist at heart. This was brought home to me by a recent dining experience. Every year, in October, several cousins gather with me and Mr. Ken to celebrate our birthdays. We always go to Longfellow’s Wayside Inn. This is the oldest operating inn in the United […]
