    Loving the picture, Monika, can almost touch the soft fur..
    ahem!! Getting sidetracked… just came round to say hi, and saw you had a new Guestbook… and of course wanted to be first in t’BOOK….Yaaay!!
    and to wish you a wonderful Thursday…bye for now…Penx

  2. Thanks, Pen, so happy you came by.

    • penpusherpen says:

      and here I am again, Monica, pushing my face into the lovely thick fur… dropping by to wish you and yours a wonderful Christmas time and the happiest of New Years. I hope 2014 is a good one for us all. xxPenxx

      • Monica says:

        Hello dear Pen! Love it when you visit! Thank you so much for these beautiful wishes. I do hope 2014 is a good year for all of us. Thinking of you…

    Hi Monica,

    Yes I have been really busy of late and so I missed out on getting here first, but how wicked of Lady Penelope to slip a comment into your Guestbook before I got the chance… No chocolate pudding for her now… lol

    We can now call in at anytime and add whatever we want, well within reason I mean. Thank you for calling into My Gothic Realm and reading my somewhat nonsensical scrawls, you are always welcome my wicked friend. Have a lovely rest of day and a most fangtastic evening…

  4. I LOVE having you, Lady Pen, and my other dear friends come by — anytime. So much fun to hear from you. It scared me a little to create this new page, since I always seem to goof something up along the way. This time things went reasonably smoothly.

    • penpusherpen says:

      I felt the same, Monica… so I registered a new blog, (under the ‘my blogs’ link) and have a separate 2nd blog to play about with (themes, widgets..etc) no subscribers, and I can make mistakes and therefore learn what not to do…. and if I make an error…’trashing’ sounds so delicious…in fact there should be a great sound effect to go with it!! I’ve even started ‘talking to myself’ too, much, much cheaper than therapy. 😉 xPenx

      • Wow, what a terrific idea. That’s as creative as the other things I see you doing. I like the idea of a “trashing” sound effect. You mean you write comments to yourself? Love it!

  5. Dear Friends,
    We are getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving in the US. It’s a day (weekend) for getting together with family and friends and celebrating the blessings in our lives. I just wanted to let you know that I’m very grateful for you, your writing, your ideas and comments, and for having you be part of my life. Thank you!! Monica

    • penpusherpen says:

      Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours Monica..
      and thank you for sharing your writings and thoughts too…It’s always a pleasure to drop by Sweet Planet Poems, …. and strange to think of the winding path which brings people together, at a certain time, certain place…a connection through the ‘airwaves’…Wonderful technology I say!!.. 😀
      Glad to be part of your life, my friend.. xPenx

  6. Thank you, Pen. Wouldn’t it be great if you could drop over for dinner?

  7. andro51 says:

    Hi Monica, no you’re not cracking up and neither is WordPress ‘Castle of Blood’ was a Script that I had already offered here, it is I that goofed up… lol Though the title is still available to view if you wish to read it and is easily found with a little back tracking (It was published here on the 20th October 2010)… Thank you for asking me about this one and I hope that it is worthy of your time upon finding it… Have a lovely rest of day now my wicked young friend…

    thanks for dropping by Monica, and glad you enjoyed the photo’s of Bess. AS to Johnny Depp, well, I know that a phone call would be a miracle… 😉 , and I’m not holding my breath or anything,… sorry, went off into a daydream there!!… Loved Alice in Wonderland, and I think the whole production was spot on, capturing the total over-the-top madness of the fantasy story, (how could it not with Tim Burton directing? Love his dark and disturbing Gothic type films.) …and Johnny as The Mad Hatter, somehow getting across the sadness and vulnerability of the character through all that fantastic madness and over the top make-up … plus those eyes!! I have the DVD and I could watch him I mean of course, 😉 ….the film again and again…The large headed Red Queen, was glorious… and well played by Helena Bonham Carter, (she’s also married to Tim Burton, and I would love to be a fly on the wall in their house, must be magic!!) One of my top ten favourites I think. Did you enjoy it?..
    (I have a love of the strange films,….like Beetlejuice.. I know Johnny wasn’t in it…but Michael Keaton took the film to another level, and the premise of the story was fantastic. The scenes in the ‘afterlife waiting room’ take a numbered ticket, were a scream… )

    • Monica says:

      Hi, Pen. I love seeing the film through your eyes! Yes, the Mad Hatter was glorious, and the Red Queen, too. I didn’t realize who she was until the end. Alice, too – so beautiful in blue. I will have to rent Beetlejuice. My only complaint – I guess I’m old-fashioned — is: why does everything have to be a battle? Couldn’t we just row down the river and dream? Best…Monica

    Have a lovely Wednesday my wickedly fine friend…

    just called by to say hello great site love all the wildlife and nature blogs xxjen

    • Monica says:

      Hi Jen, Just replying now – I feel kind of stupid. I tried to check out your blog, like I always do when a new person visits, and got stumped. Simpler to just say thanks for visiting and leaving your very fine comment!

  11. Monica says:

    Hi you two. Thanks for coming by and leaving such nice comments.

  12. andro51 says:

    I am just calling by to wish you a most
    wonderful rest of evening and excellent weekend…

    Androgoth XXx

    • Monica says:

      Hi Androgoth, So good to hear from you. Thanks also for your nice comment about my posts. I’m enjoying the give and take of our posts and comments very much.

  13. penpusherpen says:

    Thought I’d leave this in your Guestbook, Monica, hope it works, I find I sometimes still pick the wrong ‘link’ … no matter how much I practice… 😀

    I found it on Photobucket and ‘borrowed’ it…and here it is for you…now you’re an “accessory after the fact ” … 😉 hugs to you….. xPenx

  14. Monica says:

    Pen, this is great! Thanks – I love it.

    • penpusherpen says:

      Just dropping by to wish you and yours a Wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year for 2011, Hope Santa brings you all you could wish for…

      hugs from Pen ‘n Bess…..xx

      • Monica says:

        Gorgeous, Pen! I want to fall into that deep blue color. Wishing you and Bess warm and wonderful holidays and a fine New Year. (I guess the warmth will come from the heart – not the outdoors.)

  15. andro51 says:

    Hope you’re having a wicked week so far Monica, it’s still a tad cold here in the UK but I have my thermal gloves and hat at the ready so no problemo…

    Be good now it’s nearly Santa Claws time…

  16. penpusherpen says:

    hi there Monica,
    thanks for dropping by, and glad you enjoyed my little poem, and the marrow link!! I just couldn’t believe it when I found it…Marrow Rum?…and the rest!! made me laugh my socks off…(put them straight back on though…freezing around here!!)
    and I wish I knew how to send a direct link to JD, Wow, wouldn’t that be something?
    I’d faint with delight and total shock!! 😀
    take care my friend…. hope you had a wonderful Christmas, xPenx

    • Monica says:

      Hi Pen, I googled JD to see what I could come up with and found nothing but fan clubs. There has to be another way. Send a letter to him care/of his movie studio? You are very resourceful, so you will figure something out. I have the feeling he would be delighted with your prose and poetry. Happy happy 2011!!

  17. penpusherpen says:

    Hope this year is a good one, my friend, thank you for calling round ( that sounds great, as if we’re neighbours 😀 ) … and for your continued support and lovely comments.
    Happy New Year, Monica… Cheers to you and your loved ones.. xPenx

    I was here this afternoon, but had a quilting project to finish, so just pulled your address on to my desktop. It made me laugh to see your comments in my mail when I came back on later.

    You have been added to my reader, and yes, I do believe we share interests.

    • penpusherpen says:

      So it did work, Monica, BUT the only problem was my mobile didn’t have enough memory to let me see any photo’s…so I won’t be using again in a hurry…I definitely want to view all your lovely pictures… Off to watch The Manchester Untied FA Cup game against Crawley now….Come on the reds!!! 🙂 xx

  27. andro51 says:

    Androgoth XXx

    • Monica says:

      Yes, Androgoth – no problem. Thanks for making sure – I wouldn’t want to miss your postings. I’m sorry you felt the need to go private. Perhaps a perfect world would also have more of a sense of humor.

  35. Androgoth says:

    I am just calling by before I slip off the lid, no it’s not
    been snowing I was just… Well being a tad silly I guess,
    or eccentric could be a closer description? lol Right I

    Androgoth XXx

    • Monica says:

      Dear Androgoth, Thank you so much for this lovely message. We are in Hawaii, enjoying the water and more humid air – so different from home. In fact everything is different – the birds, the plants, the food. I look at the ocean and can’t forget how powerful it is – such beauty and power. And such fragility, too.
      Very best to you, my friend, and I look forward to catching up soon.

  37. Androgoth says:

    Are you Monica…

    I hope that you are enjoying your vacation,
    all that Sun bathing, swimming, partying and…
    Well whatever you like I guess? lol

    Just remember the Vampire code…

    Be Good Now

    • Monica says:

      Hi there Androgoth, Thanks for visiting and sending me your good wishes! Tropical lethargy is setting in, and I’m finding it hard to move. Perhaps it’s good that the return to reality approaches. Best to you — Monica

  38. Androgoth says:

    Just take in all the scenes of Hawaii
    though I am sure that your vacation has
    already been one to remember…

    Have a fine rest of holiday Monica

    Androgoth XXx

  39. Monica says:

    Hi Androgoth, I like that “Hawaii are you”! It was snowing when we returned – hard to make the adjustment. I hope you are very well yourself!

  40. jennyozzy says:

      • Androgoth says:

        Yes I did… Actually I should say so
        instead of joking around lol Well I
        am the Jolly Vampire so I do like to
        have a laugh, even when the joke is
        on me… lol Thank you for your nice
        wishes Monica you are a true friend

    Thank you for calling into My Gothic Realm Monica,
    I do hope that your eyes are a lot better soon and that

    lots of rain, hardly a ghoulishly hot summer but with your

    That other one was supposed to read ‘Have A Great Rest of Weekend’ but with my Anglo-Russian-Italian keyboard it was gaga… lol I hope that your nerves are holding for the wedding ceremony and wickedly excellent festivities to follow? Of course you are, though I would imagine that you have another twenty different outfits standing by just in case you cannot make up your mind on the day 🙂 lol Just kidding Monica and do have a lovely Thursday with lashings of wickedness thrown in for good measure…

    Be Good, Be Happy and most importantly Behave Yourself 🙂 lol

    Androgoth XXx

    • Monica says:

      This lovely message is most appreciated, Androgoth! I do hope my nerves hold out through the ceremony. As for the outfits, how did you know what was on my mind? I bought a suit when the weather was freezing, and now it seems way too hot! Can’t find what I want, either. Coming up soon – must behave.

  62. Androgoth says:

    I hope that your weekend

    Hello Monica

    Just popping in (regrettably, not for tea) to say I hope you are well – I see from Androgoth’s comment that you have a family wedding celebration on the calendar – hope it is, or was, fabulous.

    An indicator of early spring here this morning in the form of an attack of the hayfevers – nevertheless, it is the season I most love, so am looking forward to it, sniffles and all 😉


    • Monica says:

      Hi Bluebee, Your good wishes are most appreciated! Wedding is in 3 weeks – first Sunday in September. Things are hurtling along nicely. Enjoy your beautiful spring. Respite and rebirth. Fall is beautiful here, too, and then we know what comes. No choice but to enjoy it. Best — Monica

  67. bluebee says:

    Well, that is wonderful, Monica – enjoy this special time 🙂

    HI there Monica, just dropping by on this sunny Summer day,(Sunday is living up to it’s name 🙂 )
    to say how are you and yours?.. Hope things are ok, and I see from bb’s comment that you’ll be celebrating a wedding soon, lovely times, as there’s nothing quite like one for a full feeling of happiness and joy for the future. Have a wonderful time my lovely friend, lots of hugs. xPenx

  70. Monica says:

    Dear Pen, Thank you for this lovely comment. A wedding in exactly 2 weeks! I hope and expect that everything will be fine, all sides of the family will get along nicely. But there’s a lot of fretting going on, too, for reasons that have no explanation. Your good wishes are very much appreciated, and I look forward to enjoying your postings again soon.

  71. bluebee says:

    Hello Monica

    Saw the reports in the NYTimes this morning about the quakes across the States :-(, including your part of the country, so just wanted to say hope all is well with you under the circumstances.


    • Monica says:

      Dear Bluebee, We did not feel the quake to the south here, but my son called from NY to say he had left the swaying 40th floor of his building and was now at home. How did he get there? The subway! Thank you so much for asking – all seems to be well. Best to you, my friend.

  72. Androgoth says:

    I am just calling by to wish you a
    wickedly fine weekend Monica 🙂

    Hello, Monica – I do hope that all is well with you.

  82. Monica says:

    Dear Bluebee, My one-track mind is running along a wolf track, as you may have guessed. I’m trying to decide how to be focused, effective, and patient – a tall order! Other than that, I have just returned from seeing family, friends, and the opera in NYC! So amazing! Very best wishes to you, dear friend.

    • bluebee says:

      I thought that may be the case, Monica – patience is a tall order, indeed, when it comes to these things.

      How wonderful to have been to see family in NYC and to have been to the opera there! I am envious 😀 Which one did you see?

      Glad to see that you’re OK

      • Monica says:

        Hi Bluebee! We saw Faust at the Met! Rene Pape was Mephistopheles, with a voice that’s deeper than deep and a very natty dresser to boot! Singing that the golden calf is still worshiped, he turns water in the office cooler to red – wine supposedly, but it looked like blood. Then he proceeds to ruin Marguerite utterly. 4 hours of glorious singing.

    I hope that you are getting ready for Santa
    and have already popped your stocking on
    the wall ready for filling with all of your most
    wanted gifts 🙂 Well be good or you won’t be
    getting any… Pressies I meant cheeky 🙂 lol

  84. bluebee says:

    That’s sound likes a wonderful modern take on Faust, Monica – what a hoot! Well…as much of a hoot as Faust can be 🙂

    • Monica says:

      Bluebee, it was. I wish I had had my camera along to take pictures of the hall and the cast at curtain call. (People all around me were doing that.) That Rene Pape was a force to be reckoned with.

  85. Androgoth says:

    I hope you are getting ready for Santa Clause
    Monica? 🙂 Yes get your stocking up and be a
    very, very good girl or else? 🙂 lol

  86. Monica says:

    Dear Androgoth, Thank you my friend for your visits and holiday wishes. I hope your holidays are as excellent as you could wish for! I’m having trouble accessing, not just your blog, but my own as well! The blogless blogger – now that’s sad.

  87. Androgoth says:

    An early Christmas Pressie for you Monica 🙂
    I do hope that you are being good, well at least
    trying to be anyway 🙂 lol

    A very Merry Christmas to you Monica 🙂

    • Monica says:

      Hello Androgoth! Thank you and Merry Christmas to you! Santa squirrel is a very cute fellow – how did you (or another?) ever get the shot? Have wonderful holidays, my friend!

  88. Hello Monica, my friend.
    Are you well or have you gone to ground in a creative spree?

    Take care. x

    • Monica says:

      Talia, you are amazingly intuitive! I am well, have also gone to ground on a creative spree. Soon to give birth – I hope you will like it. And I hope you are also well and thriving.

  89. Androgoth says:

    I hope that you are enjoying a wonderful weekend Monica 🙂 😉

    What a wonderful webpage. Enjoyed the pictures and commentary. We were so happy for your Beverly Hills visit with Trixie. It was so nice of you to brave the freeways to see us. Thank you so much. It was such a pleasant visit including the piano concert. Look forward to seeing you again, but not so long between visits if possible.
    With love,
    Bill Feuer and Miriam

    • Monica says:

      Dear Bill, You are so kind and gracious! It was a wonderful visit and, yes, we can’t wait so long between them. Love to you and Miriam and happy birthday wishes to you! Love, Monica

    It has been ages since I was last here Monica
    but I am pleased that you are still on WP and
    posting, I thought that you had left this place,
    hence my surprise to see all these new posts 🙂

    It is very nice to see you again Monica 🙂 🙂
