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.

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.

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.

From Rifugio Martina to Monte San Primo (Bellagio)

Monte San Primo. Agile hikers aren't the only ones to climb up here in summer because the tell-tale aroma of ovine and caprine droppings invaded our nostrils long before reaching the top. Our intent was to go up then return on the mainly forested trail (right side of photo) that commences behind Rifugio Martina, but the ascent is so steep (average 14% grade) that I wasn't too keen on going back down through the bug-infested environment again. The top photo was taken looking back at S. Primo as we descended to connect with sentiero 1 and continue on a loop trail to the starting point. For those who may have ended up here for trails near Bellagio, take a look at this site to see what the fuss is all about and tell me that ain't gorgeous (scroll to bottom). Unfortunately, it was a hazy experience for us this past Sunday and thus the wait continues until a clear weekend comes along. In the meantime I've set our hiking goals to explore more of the area that is just 30…

Hiking in Parre (Bergamo) and its famous Scarpinocc

We're expanding our horizons (and stomachs) to include the province of Bergamo, specifically the mountains and valleys up north where cheese, pasta, polenta and even the language take on a flavor all its own. From what we've experienced, the vast Bergamo Alps is still largely untouched by foreign tourists as most everyone heads directly to Lake Como from Milan. Depending on your view that may be seen as a good or bad thing, but we hope to reveal some of the beauty on these pages. But first, what is this scarpinocc? I can't recall exactly how I first heard of them, but when the MotH and I walked into a pasta shop and asked if they had any to sell, we were told that the best place to go would be in the village in which they were made famous - Parre. Scarpinocc are a filled pasta (grana, bread crumbs, cinnamon, nutmeg) that resemble those medieval, pointed shoes worn long before rubbah slippahs and sneakers were conceived - think elf footwear and you should have an idea.…

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…
