Happy #museumcats day. This holiday is my favorite because I am named after the Getty Museum in California.
My humin says this is because I has the same colors in my furs as the Getty Gardens—desert browns, dappled sun, dark shade, travertine, smogs, white stone, and pretty bronze. But I think the real reason is that I has impeccable taste in arts and belong in a villa.
Anyway, I read every new post on the museum’s blog, the Iris. And I sneef and re-sneef all of their tweets. You should, too! thegetty
Happy #MuseumCats Day!
We have a few feline-related records in the holdings of the National Archives, but this one is a perennial favorite.
Also sort of a two-for, as we can get a head start for International #BeerDay on August 1!
I’m really over this roomate crap. I just want to live alone. In my own place. Just Neville and me. And a dog. Maybe a bird. And a horse.
I’m just over drama 1000%. If I lived alone there would be no drama. I would be a million times less stressed out. I wouldn’t get nauseous every time everyone comes home. That would be the life. This crap is physically mentally and emotionally exhausting.
Selfish sonsabitches. Over it.
Sorry… Rant over….
Day 67 - Eleanor’s Childhood Trips to Switzerland
Between 1899 and 1902, Eleanor spent three years at Allenswood, an elite boarding school for girls near London. During holidays she frequently travelled throughout England and continental Europe visiting friends and relatives, including a trip in 1900 to St. Moritz, Switzerland.
From Eleanor’s autobiography:
As the summer holidays came nearer my excitement grew for I was to travel to Saint-Moritz in Switzerland to spend my holiday with the Mortimers.
My first view of these beautiful mountains was breath-taking, for I had never seen any high mountains. I lived opposite the Catskill Mountains in summer and loved them, but how much more majestic were these great snow-capped peaks all around us as we drove into the Engadine. The little Swiss chalets, built into the sides of the hills and with places under them for all the livestock that did not actually wander into the kitchen, were picturesque, but strange to my eyes with their fretwork decoration…
The hotels [in Saint-Moritz] all bordered the lake, and the thing that I remember best about my time there was the fact that Tissie and I got up every morning early enough to walk to a little café that perched out above the lake on a promontory at one end. There we drank coffee or cocoa and ate rolls with fresh butter and honey, the sun just peeping out over the mountains and touching us with its warm rays. I can still remember how utterly contented I was!
