We met this ginger gentleman some time ago in a McDonald’s
restaurant. He was sitting at the edge of the outdoor seating area like a colorful
When we sat down to eat, he suddenly appeared at our table
and waited patiently until we offered to share our meal. He didn’t beg or make
a fuss and politely declined to eat cheese and French fries. He accepted only
I was so pleased he was not keen on my vegetarian meal. However, the meat eaters in my family ended up with smaller than normal Big Macs! 😄😄
However, everyone was happy, especially our Ginger Street Cat guest.
Please grab a cup of coffee, and let’s get
to know each other better!
Although I created this website as a journal of my art journey and artsy lifestyle generally, I need to say couple of words about my family members in case they invade to my blog pages and occupy some part of it. Or at least actively participate in the stories, I’ll post here as I wouldn’t be able to restart my career if not their support.
CAST OF CHARACTERS:
The head of the family – Monkey aka Minkey
(a shortened version of Mini Monkey) who is actually a cat and not a monkey. We
rescued her from the street five years ago. She was dirty, hungry, and thirsty and
had a broken leg. We cleaned her up, fed her and fixed her leg and she has been
with us ever since. She currently serves as the boss of the household and like
all cats is a self-proclaimed princess. She was definitely put on earth to rule!
Minkey is the busiest member of our family.
Her responsibilities include the supervision of my artistic work. As an art
curator, she closely monitors my progress and ensures that everything is done
according to her exquisite taste.
Caucasian Shepherd dog Moses – a pretty girl,
not a boy as might be expected by her name. When she was born, her behavior
reminded me of the silly seal Moses from Vi på Saltkråkan by Astrid Lindgren,
so I named her Moses.
Moses is a large dog and scary looking but she
is a sweet and most loving creature who still thinks she is a puppy who can
still jump on your lap. She doesn’t mind that she is five years old already and
weighs nearly 70 kilos. Her job description is not too long. She is just
responsible for being lovely and cuddly for family members and scary for
My teenage son lives in his own self-proclaimed kingdom in a part of our house where moms, pets and cameras are not allowed. He has grown up quicker than I could ever have imagined was possible and I require special permission to take a photo of him. Well… this time I didn’t get that permission 😃
And at last my wonderful, very supportive life partner Mike Bear, who persistently supports one of my hobbies – cooking. He probably is only Englishman in Georgia who has actually tasted every single Georgian dish. His current size of waist is directly proportional reflection of this support.
That’s it for now. Thanks for getting to
know our family!
