Heres Tiger.....


no no, not THAT Tiger!  This is a very nice Tiger.  He does NO filandering!!!
His family moved and left him behind, hungry and alone until my daughter took him in as her own.  Can you imagine our luck! We are very happy to have Tiger as a part of our family.

Gosh Lorraina, How many cats do you have?

Lorraina said...

I just have Pavel. My daughter Corinne has Seven, Abigail and Tiger. My daughter Colleen has Jersey. No dogs in the family anymore, :(
Oh, i also have 2 little blue fish, all that remains in what used to be a thriving fisheries. Well, lol, its a 25 gal. salt water tank but used to have an array of colorful coral and fishes. Over the years they all died off but the 2 Tetras live on, and on....and on.....

Lalala said...

Your daughters are Corinne and Colleen? You are obviously not first generation Asian. Colinne? Colllllen? Flied Lice? haha.

Tetras are so cute! Keep them alive.

Lorraina said...

lol, no, not first generation Asian. We did however travel together to China years ago; had to check out how the people can be so diverse as to make such fabulous big huge things as the great wall and yet to also make such fabulous things as embroidery with hair and writing poetry on a grain of rice. We are still in awe.
I don't know Lalala are you from China? Taiwan? Hong Kong?

OOps i made a mistake when i said i had 2 tetras. Thats wrong, they're damselfish. I dont know how long they usually live but i'm tired of looking after a 25 gal home just for them....i know that sounds mean but really, when it was full of colorful fish it was good. Now i'm wondering if they're ever going to die! Aquarium culture is alot of work. I thought about adding some more but heard the 2 will then die for sure and i'll be stuck with the new ones for more years and years.....

Oh MY GOD i should give up for today and just go to bed! I keep saying and doing the wrong things.
Now i remember you are from Taipei.
Sorry!

Lalala said...

Hahahaha, you can put them back into the ocean. I wonder if they will live in a "real world".

Yes I am fron Taipei. A very happy place where people eat like crazy.

Hope you are resting and drinking martini by now. LOL.

The ocean here in Vancouver is like Seattle, way too cold for these fish. I guess any disruption of their lives will kill them so i am stuck till death do us part.

I had a friend from Taiwan but not sure if it was Taipei. She taught me the wonderful art of pressing flowers and she brought me back 2 flower presses and books showing what artists do with the flowers there. Its beautiful and truly amazing! Have you ever seen this?

Yes, i have been resting all evening and didnt even go to the casino. No martini; just diet coke.
Now i'll go to the online casino and see if i can get lucky with play money

Lalala said...

I don't know anything about the flower art.... I majored in Oil paiting in college, it's embarrassing to say that there is so much arts back home that I have not even learned about.

online casino? haha, play monkey!

Lorraina said...

Please put some of your oil paintings on your blog. I'd really love to see them.
What kind of game is monkey?

Lalala said...

Putting paintings on a food blog.... hmmmm, I will find a way to put it in.

You said you wanted to see if you can get lucky with play money, and I thought you meant play monkey. So I had a visual of you playing with a monkey who's in a casino uniform.... ok, all crazy.

Lorraina said...

not so crazy at all - i do play a game called Cool bananas with an ape being the wild symbol. I think its supposed to be like King Kong but i noticed the ape is actually a female with large breasts bursting out of her dress. Its a fun slot machine you can play with pretend money.
Its at 888.com if you're interested.

Lalala said...

Sounds fun. I will keep that in mind when I run out of things to do!!
