  • Anonymous - Thank you. Just…thank you.

  • Cary - You understand me! You REALLY understand me. That is a great feeling.ReplyCancel

  • Natalie DeYoung - I am a sucker for special needs animals. That is why I kept my husband’s pit bull – talk about needing a LOT of training!ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - OMG I can ONLY imagine! Those dogs are STRONG! We have a 3-legged girl kitty and once had a dog that I think was mentally retarded- or is that ALL dogs? HahahaaaaReplyCancel

  • William Kendall - Thank you, Cheryl!

    I think when we grow up with animals, there’ll always be one that makes a deeper impression on us than others. Mine was a daschund- cocker spaniel mix named Blackie. Sounds like Andy was yours!ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - Your so welcome William. My pleasure. We also had a cat named Chester Field King that was a hoot! They’re ALL my favorites! Love the animals I do 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Papa Bear - fantastic to see others who adopt four legged family members. The joy they can bring to your family is awesome.ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - It really is. They never really want anything from you but a little love and attention and they give such love in return. I wish more PEOPLE were like that! So happy to see you here Papa Bear!ReplyCancel

  • Haralee - Pets, who owns whom? Our hearts are connected.ReplyCancel

  • Sue - Love our cat Simba and little dog Anya. I could easily do a animal blog, but not as well as your featured bloggers that I think are fabulous.ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - They are fabulous aren’t they, and WE could not do what you do with your subject half as well. It all evens out!ReplyCancel

When entertaining at home, one must always consider the dramatic ending to a fine meal.A Forte, if you will. An appropriate Encore. (I love Opera. Can you tell?).Having grilled steak with roasted asparagus and baked potatoes? Finish with a slice of cake.Enjoying a classic pasta primavera with a green mixed arugula salad tossed in a fresh […]

* I am conducting a little experiment. On Monday’s I will be posting commentary on a Current Event of my choice by which I will proceed to rip someone a new poop hole. It may be fun. I might be sued. But I will always be entertaining.  So, welcome to… MONDAY MADNESS join the party! Here in […]

  • William Kendall - A peculiar city. The founders never expected it would become a city, from what I hear… all they were interested in was a trading post.ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - I don’t see how that’s possible, as it is in a geographically protected bend on the largest and busiest river in the Northern Hemisphere, which leads to the Gulf. Only a Trading Post- nah, I don’t think so.ReplyCancel

  • conniemcleod - Might need a Pimm’s Cup when I get home. Cheers!ReplyCancel

  • mooggeek - I like to tell people; if you don’t like what your tax money is paying for, pretend you’re paying for something you like. Don’t like welfare? Then all of your taxes are going to the military. Don’t like your tax money paying for a war? Your money is paying for education. My tax money is paying for what’s left of NASA and whatever it takes to keep Cafe Du Monde and the community around it from slipping into the ocean so I can have beignets when I visit.ReplyCancel

  • Petra - Years ago I wouldn’t have…but by now I completely get it that one would stilll make the deliberate choice to live in a risk prone area/city/zone. And don’t they pay taxes as well?? I’d in any case love to see that city by myself one of these days (and of course taste that gumbo!), inwardly crossing my fingers that It’d go down discreetly and not add to the tourist-kind-of-natural-disaster….ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - The Natural Disasters I speak of are of the alcohol kind. People come here and get really sloppy. The Gumbo is fine.ReplyCancel

Today, my friends, we celebrate the life of a great woman. The kind of woman that you all wish you could be- yes, even you Billy. (Remember to wink at Billy and initiate gentle laughter. Nod head in gesture of solidarity with great Aunt Bess).Cheryl began her life as the eldest daughter of a sharecropper.As […]
