Hi Everybody! I really thought I had you all stumped yesterday with my Teaser photo. Some of you had OTHER ideas though and sure enough, two of you guessed it EXACTLY…..and several of you had the right country where the photo had been taken.
A little background…..my parents were on the SECOND stop of their honeymoon trip way back in 1990. They had Eurail passes that would take them across Europe and while they started out in Rome, Italy, their SECOND stop was in Venice!
This was one of several photos my parents took while cruising through the “Piazza San Marco” – or, as my Dad called it after they’d been there about an hour – “Pigeon Poop Piazza” because of the zillions of pigeons flying around there. They sold bags of seed for the pigeons so you could feed them and have your photo taken but do we have to tell you how many people who DID that wound up covered in pigeon poop???? Needless to say my parents didn’t go that route, but they did stop here in the piazza for an espresso and to people watch.
Two of you got the EXACT location where the photo was taken (woo hoo) and three of you guessed the right country (also woo hoo).
Zena of The Princess Tails (guessed EXACTLY!)
Easy of Easy Weimaraner (also guessed EXACTLY!)
Mollie of Mollie’s Dog Treats
The Guinea Pig Boys of Hutch A Good Life
Cody of CAT CHAT
Here’s your winning hug everybody!
…….Big Sammy Hug !…….
Now, on to the “fishing” part of my blog! My Mom’s very super good friend Trish Terrell, the author, just started a second blog all about her fabulous hobby of raising angelfish! That’s right – they are beautiful fish and she’s got lots of aquariums in her house where she raises them from eggs to babies to big fish. She also has four doggies who are all rescues and I think she’ll mention them in coming blogs but mainly this blog is about her fish. Miss Trish writes really good thriller/suspense novels and my Mom (and thousands of other fans) have read them and love them all – but in one of her more recent books called “Vicki’s Key”, the main character who is a CIA agent, is involved in raising angelfish.
They really are beautiful fish too – I didn’t know what one looked like until Miss Trish started this hobby and I have to admit, I wouldn’t mind having a big tank full of these babies all to myself (I hear you giggling – you think I’d be dipping my paw in there to grab one and eat it don’t you?!?!?!)…….WHO ME???????????? Well, anyway, I’m giving you the link to Miss Trish’s blog about her fishies just in case you’d like to take a peek and hear about them. The original group of fish were named after Fleetwood Mac (which happens to be one of my Mom’s all-time fave groups) – and the names Miss Trish gave her fish are kinda cute…….
Click HERE to visit Vicki’s Angelfish and check it out – and if you’re a reader of suspense thrillers – you might want to visit Miss Trish’s website too……the link is on her blog.
Happy Wednesday Peeps!!! See you here again tomorrow….
Kitty Hugs, Sammy 😀 😀 😀
