2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,000 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 17 trips to carry that many people.

About the header…

OK, I know, that isn’t me up there. I’m a busy bunny, you know? So from now on I am delegating tasks to others in my clan.

Here it is, everybody, PearlJ!

Here you see GreyJ her forming her famous move. Hi, this is 9J. I am sorry all the Js, Anita Maria and I have been away for so long. Anita Maria has just started a new job at a museum, so she’s been busy. We are all dying to some traveling again but this  may not be for the near future.

Everyone take care and hope to see you all again soon!

Taiwan Trip, 2013

Anita Maria took a trip to Taipei last month.  DutchJ, PearlJ, Wishie, and I (9J) went with her.

New Members Introduction Continued!

Continuing our new member introduction “series”:

CapeJ came to us from Japan’s Kiddyland.  Anita Maria’s friend from dance was visiting Japan and she brought her back.

CapeJ... the combination is quite nice, don't you think?

CapeJ… the combination is quite nice, right?

GrumpyJ, as you can see, is a Care Bear.

I think the color combination is quite nice, don't you?

New members Introduction ~ PearlJ and Kleine PearJ

These two came to us via eBay!

They are actually from this exhibition:

The Mauritshuis Gallery, one of Anita’s favorite museums, has closed for renovation.  Their masterpieces went on tour, and one of the stops was Tokyo (and Kobe), Japan.  To commemorate this occasion, Miffy is dressed up as the “Girl with a Pearl Earring,” the famous tronie by Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer. Hence, PearlJ (and Kleine PearlJ).

I think they should be called Griet (the name of the girl in the book Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier) and /or Pearl Jam, just saying.

Here she is - PearlJ in Hollywood Road Park

Here she is, our new Care Bear member ~ WishJ! She is sent to live with the clan by Anita’s Twitter friend from the U.S. She is of a beautiful aquamarine color and her fur looks and feels like corduroy.  She is vintage and she comes with a wrinkled tag on her left ear, which Anita still doesn’t want to remove. Welcome WishJ!
