I can see right up your nose from here
Thank you Lambert, for Corrente.
Lambert is an unusual host, because he encourages all sorts of far-flung "stuff". And, having asked about doing silly kitty posts (therapy), he said "we need more kitties". Or something like that.
As for the title....
Oh, wait. About the photo (via flickr)- this is Boo, Maine coon of Scotland, older sister of Dexter, Maine coon of Scotland. Same parents, different litters. Dexter is famous for testing curtain rods. And leaping out of upstairs windows. Title is caption to photo, from JW Maine coon human.
The phrase "I can see right up your nose from here" has a certain je ne sais quoi about it. I can imagine it coming in handy in many different situations, especially when one is at a loss for words.
I'll have to ask JW if this is a Scottish expression.
Meanwhile, unbeknownst to me, my Maine coon Tootsie got out my debit card (from my Credit Union) and contributed to the Corrente fundraiser.
I suppose that she used this link.
