R.I.P. Qui

Sadly I must report the loss of our fish, Qui. I found her/him floating in the “pond” this morning. He was fine yesterday. The cause of death is not known. Sad to loose him/her. We are trying to decide whether to get another. Qua and Quo are doing fine.
We had friends over for dinner last night. We are still working our way into entertaining upstairs here with no kitchen. I decided three salads would be nice since it was hot outside. I did all the hot cooking, rice, toasting pine nuts and coconut etc early in the day. Then later I assembled what could be done ahead of time. The last minute stuff was just before our guests arrived and I took all the salads up on my cart on the elevator to the 3rd floor. It all worked out perfect. Our guests have sold their home here and are leaving for a new life in Florence. The are ever thoughtful and brought a beautiful, shade loving plant for us. We will miss them 😢

Tonight we had a nice mozzarella di bufala with the amazing new tomatoes.

Ciao for now!

    Hi Allen. We’re practically neighbors now! I’ll send a friend request. Or you can to me. I have a couple questions about your apartment.

    Hi Matt, thanks. The cars have never cared about fish. We had her in Alexandria too. It’s a good thing for Qua and Quo.

    Nancy , I’m going to be periodically renting my place at Via Allende 2 next to the coop. It’s a 3/2 but we’ve changed it to a 2/2. One bedroom has 2 single beds in a room with an AC unit and the other bedroom has a queen. The other AC unit is in the family room. Fully furnished of course.
    One bathroom has an enclosed shower and the other a bathtub. Laundry machine.
    If one of your friends or visitors need a place to stay let me know. You’re welcome to go see the place at any time if you’re interested as I can have my friend meet you.
    You can also find me on Facebook
    Ciao Allen Liberato

    Condolences for your loss. I’m sure Qui will be missed. What do the cats think of their new housemates?
