Wishing you a peaceful easter weekend

*Yawn* *grumble* *nose in the air*. It wasn't easy convincing these two to agree to an easter greeting photo shoot. Just to get them wearing the ears without pulling or shaking them off was a 10 minute battle of I'm not having any of that *BS*. But the way to a dog's cooperation is through the stomach, and eventually, two dishes of pear chunks was enough to grant me this Kodak moment.

Happy Easter from me, MotH, Maddie and MisterB

Kat - he's always giving me that stink eye when he doesn't like something. I know my dad is going to laugh when he sees this because that's the same thing he said about Mistah's pics! :-D

They look sooo funny. I may have to try this with my cat Rocky. Somehow I don't think he'll cooperate.
Oh your poor little dogs..I would run away ha ha ha :-)

Happy Easter, hope ;you have a lovely weekend. It is wet and cold here at the mo, so not good :-(

Such sweet dogs! Look like they were enjoying a nap in the sun and you woke them up to put the bunny ears on. LOL! Buona Pasqua to you and yours too my dear.

Did I tell you we just booked our 10 year anniversary cruise? We'll be starting in Barcelona, stopping in several ports in France as well as Florence and ending in Rome. I'm so excited that we'll be back in Italy again in JUNE! Would be awesome if we could somehow meet up while I'm there. I know they're a little bit far from you though.

ROTFL!! Those pics are priceless. They must think "What's she up to now?" when you whip out your camera and come towards them with props like this. Those dogs are hilarious and you also! Happy Easter.

Buona Pasqua!

And a happy Easter to you, MotH and the kids, who, by the way, are adorable in their ears. Complimenti especially on the pic at the bottom, which is worthy of Fame. Also glad to read about the progress you are making On Your Own with Mr. B - sounds like your ideas are more sensible than the trainer's!
oh, Rowena, I just want to reach out and hug them. hope your Easter weekend was peaceful also! I spent mine in Kona...nice to see sun again!
Rowena... said…
jmisgro - with Cinco de Mayo coming up I may have to figure out a way to make sombreros for the dogs. :-DDD

Fern - MisterB is a definite WORK in progress. We'll make a gentledog out of him yet!

Connie - Kona! Lucky you! Easter just isn't the same without sun. So nice that you had a peaceful and sunny weekend.

Fun in the sun and snow at Alpe Giumello

Why do weekends with perfect weather always have to be so short? This past Saturday and Sunday was the one that anybody with a pulse has been wanting for a long time, the weekend with ZERO rain, no snowfall and nothing but blue skies all around. We had the intention of hiking around the base of Monte Muggio, a 3-hour loop trail that begins from the parking area at localit√† Alpe Giumello, but ice on the trail made it a dangerous gamble. If we had been able to get to the very top of Monte Muggio it would have afforded us a spectacular panorama with Bellagio jutting out in the middle of the lake.Even if a good, long hike was out of the question, there was plenty of wide open space to go for a stroll. We walked the dogs out on the flat plains on the eastern side of Giumello, all of which were covered in a thick layer of packed snow. In less than 30 minutes time we had built up enough of an appetite for a quick lunch at Ristoro Genio, a cozy little bar and restaurant serving hot meals…

In the news: from blogosphere to printed publication

It's just a little thing really, but when a staff member from a periodical for Italy's Alpini requested permission to reprint one of my blog entries, I had no idea how surprised, and I have to admit, a little bit sheepish I'd feel after seeing my Tasi e Tira article taking up half the space on page 12. I just received my copy in the mail. The entry was posted over a year ago but through the vast reaches of the internet it goes to show what nice things can happen when you try to immerse yourself in a culture not your own. Perhaps the word "immerse" is rather modest as I like to jump right into the middle of things and get up close and personal. What tickles me the most is that this blog started off as a way of amusing myself (and expanding my knowledge of the country's cuisine), but getting published...whoa! It's like icing on the cake!

Good day for a hike: 2500 feet, 23 km and 7.5 hours

A hunk of bread, a wedge of aged sheep's cheese, a couple canteens of water and some fruit. I regret not being able to share a more thorough and detailed trail description but this was more for practice and not for the lofty views. Ever since the movie The Way, we both had to know what one 20 kilometer day (12+ miles) would feel like if we were to embark on, at most, the 40-day 800 kilometer Camino de Santiago in Spain. That's a lot of walking. I think I would get real skinny if I missed a meal.Lecco's mountains are covered in so many up-and-down trails that all you need do is get to any village above the lake. We started at an altitude of 670 meters and walked up another 762 to the top of Monte Tesoro in Valcava. That's a height difference of 2500 feet, 8 kilometers and 2.5 hours at a steady pace with Maddie and Mr B in tow. From there we made a loop trip back down, stopping often to munch on vittles and to take a look around. Altogether a total of 23 kilomete…
