Dear world,
I heard that this weekend a big festival was going on Castroville, California to celebrate artichokes. That is a bit far away from where I live, but I am always up for a celebration. So I asked Mom what an artichoke was, so she brought one home. Now this is one weird vegetable. It looks bizarre and I have no idea how to eat it. Rosy says it must be good since Marilyn Monroe was the first Artichoke Queen in 1948. How does she know these things?
Love always,


  1. Hi Bear, Hi Rosy

    I just came across your blog and have been reading for the whole afternoon since the beginning. I must say I'm so impressed with the number of entries you have. They're short but interesting. You're very witty. You probably take after your mommy. Haha. Anyway, I hope that you don't get any more ouchies. Maybe you need to take a little bit more care now.

    Looking forward to reading more of your adventures.

  2. I fink probly Rosy noes bowt Marily Monroe cuz dey r bof divas! :) Dat artichoke look prickly to me. Do you get to eat it?

  3. That is only about 20 minutes away from me! Thanks for posting about this! Wouldn't it have been cool to see Marilyn as the queen of the festival

  4. The artichoke sure looks interesting. We have heard the heart of the artichoke is sweet, but aren't all hearts sweet? what do we know? we're just dogs....
