Tuesday: Hili dialogue

by Jerry & Grania

Good morning, welcome to Tuesday. Today in history, the Beatles’ Rubber Soul album hit no. 1 in the UK charts in 1965. Here’s Norwegian Wood from the album to provide a soothing interlude in your day.

We are interrupting our usual programming for a collection of cute.

Panda has fun

Kittens being adorable

A passel of d*gs

Over in Poland, Cyrus is smitten with love for his blanket-mate. Hili is taking it all in her stride, as cats do.

Cyrus: I adore you.
Hili: With good reason.

In Polish:
Cyrus: Uwielbiam cię.
Hili: Masz powód.

Hat-tip: Charleen

    It’s a cat’s life and dogs too. 52 years ago that song and only 15 years old. Driving without supervision was just around the corner – watch out.

    What a brilliant song, and there is no chorus.

      It took me years to realise that the haunting musicality of the song is at odds with thee subject matter – it’s Lennon’s tale of an affair he had while married to Cyn, hence he makes the lyrics vague & surreal. The song was meant to be somewhat jokey, but with a sardonic edge to it – burning the girl’s place down because Lennon didn’t get his leg over [he didn’t burn the house down, artist’s licence].

      Just FYI, a Jeopardy answer/question recently claimed Norwegian Wood was the Beatles first song to feature a sitar.

    Love Bull terriers. They are very kind and loving dogs, and sweet with children. I had one (Pinkie) that was stolen, presumedly by ‘dog fight’ criminals (dog fights are illegal here too).

    That white d*g – I know exactly how he feels. That’s me, trying to get up at some absurdly early** hour of the morning.


    ** Like, when the hours are still in single digits.

    Did I miss something? Where is Grania’s review of the latest Star Wars extravaganza?

    Pandas seem to be the polar opposite of cats when it comes to falling – always landing on their backs.
