              Fee Fi Fo Fum . . . Filoli!

While I enjoyed a nice afternoon nap on Wednesday, the Human and her friend drove down to a WWI-vintage country estate on the Peninsula called Filoli*, which is now part of The National Trust for Historic Preservation. They toured the fancy old house and wandered through the formal gardens, which are filled with . . . um . . . some things the Humans call Art. Uh-huh. Okay. Why not?
Like this for instance. We think the name of this piece is Worst Nightmare of the Trout Towne Tabbies, mwah hah hah. Apparently the actual title is "Searching," and it can be yours for $6500.  Anyone? Anyone? 
Right. We didn't think so.

*The rather odd name of the place came from three words in the original owner's credo: Fight for a just cause; Love your fellow man; Live a good life. All right, we can cosign onto that.

My human is a fan of rather twisted and unusual art... she is not a fan of this.

Ah, um ... hmmmm. Here I am asking myself how come the Human has time to spend on trivia such as old houses and gardens and art when she's only in the past few days told you that she hasn't got much time to spend with you until the summer vacation. I mean, if her friend wanted an outing and to view gorgeous things, then an invitation to your place would have been perfect, wouldn't it? Yes, the Human might have needed to invest a bit of time in cleaning the place up, but that wouldn't have killed her, would it? Whip up a batch of scones with jam and cream for afternoon tea and her friend would have thought it was all good.

Our mom used to visit the Filoli Estate with her dad and step-mom. It is so beautiful she says. She even has three small, stone cat statues from there in our yard. We think it would be a great place to live with all those gardens to roam around. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy
