Happy Birthday. I have been inspired to read some, listen to some new music and not to be too naughty, all from you and that Oracle (who helps the Lakers, boo hoo).
Thanks.

Marie-Louise said...

It's lovely to have a friend in bed:)

Mary-Laure said...

MANSUETUDE - I'd love to know what new music you've been listening to (and what you're reading, too).

PLEASE SIR - it does feel great, because I feel I've connected with so many amazing people who inspire me.

MARIE-LOUISE - yes, especially a little friend who keeps my feet warm under the blankets, he he he..

Gabbi said...

Looks to me like little Benji was doing anything but sleeping :) Was he a puppy there I wonder? He looks so cute. I love your hat in this post also Mary-Laure.

BRAVO !!!!!!

Hila said...

I LOVE the Benjy post :)

Mary-Laure said...

GABBI - actually I took these pictures last year when Benjy was already 6 years old, so no, he was no puppy. You should have seen him when he was a puppy - to DIE for!
And you're right, he had more fun than sleep in my bed!

MICHIKO - oh I wish I could show you pics of the bride, she was so extremely exquisite and elegant...

SOLANGE - thanks for your very kind words. I love your bog too, you have such impeccable, poetic and inspirational taste.
Enjoy NYC and please do bring us back plenty of pictures!

kendalee said...

Congratulations on your Blogbirthday! And many, many happy returns!

So lovely to see the Oracle's playful side... although bedtime is a serious thing of course! Gorgeously cute pictures :)

Hello chère petite ML, bonne année et bonne entrée au milieu de ces chiffres obscurs qui nous propulsent trop vite! dans l'hiver en Sarthe j'admire les lumières de mer qui viennent de toi et je te vois comme une elfe légère sur les bords du Pacifique océan, celui qui fait SHHHH, SHHHHHHHH, et passe sa main tranquille sur nos années.
Les miennes qui se font vieilles chercheront la glaise et les falaises au coeur de l'Anatolie tandis que ton oeil photographe nous fera défiler la modernité de ta démarche américaine! OUF! j'espère que l'élève a bien compris le geste du commentaire.....
Je pose une abeille frigorifiée sur ta fenêtre ouverte. Marie V.

Felicitaciones! y gracias por el recuerdo, amo tu blog...ah! y a Benji claro

A lovely retrospective. The doggy photos are particularly whimsical . . .

I thought of you and the Oracle yesterday... about your "birds" post and then how strange that airplane went down because of birds. Seemed strange.
