Miss Kiri Kat Comments on Coronavirus

No question about it.  We are living through difficult times on many levels; but our Miss Kiri Kat doesn’t quite see what all the fuss is about. 

I’ll let her explain it to you in her own words. 

“So what’s all this I keep hearing about a Coronavirus thingy?  Isn’t a virus like a “bug” that you catch?  I know how to deal with bugs when I catch them.  Been doing it for years.  I just pull off their legs (not tasty) and eat their bodies (quite tasty).  Result – one tasty treat and one dead bug.  Problem solved.

Three Operas, a Rabbit Hole and an Exploding Toilet

This year the Gregorian Calendar Gods added an extra day to the month of February in honor of my birthday.  What a wonderful gift -- the gift of time -- the one thing we never have enough of, like shoes and perfume.  Of course, some people think it happens automatically every four years, but don’t you believe it.  In any case, I hope you made the most of that extra day. 

Following a pre-Birthday dinner celebration featuring my favorite widow, La Veuve Clicquot, chez Anna and Novis we all went to Bistro La Minette in Philadelphia.  The fois gras was delicious and that small wine glass in the picture was a special indulgence of Sauterne – not easy to find outside of France, probably because Americans don’t seem to have developed a taste for this very expensive dessert wine.  They don’t know what they are missing.  My husband and I love it and order it whenever we can find it.
