Height of Laziness
If you suffer through this posting, you will discover that we are at the height of laziness today. Without a question true and the proof follows.
|First Signs of Spring - Charleville-Mezieres, France|
We have been anxiously anticipating Spring this year. Seems that Winter has been long, wet, cold and windy here in the Ardennes this year. Probably not that it has been such a terrible time, but more that we weary. Some say that there was no Summer last year and, so it has seemed at times.
However; signs of Spring have arrived.........just ahead of the freezing cold and snow of today. Daffodils have begun to bloom! Hurrah, Hurrah!! The photo above is of the first we have noticed.
|Not Enough of These in France|
Memories of France
We hate to say it but.......anytime we shall see dog poop on an American sidewalk we shall instantly think of our four years in France. Sad to say but true all the same. Seems to be one of the plagues of this country........not that we can think of others.
Anyway we have been encouraged recently. Not because we have noticed a decline of nasty sidewalks but because we have noticed others sharing our disgust for this frequent occurrence. Near our Chapel/Meeting House we have noticed anti-dog poop signs stencil painted on the sidewalk in several places. While cheering that on, we also found the sign pictured above - a nice new one at that. Perhaps a new French Revolution is in its infancy..........at least we can hope.
|Non-Coq Girouette - Charleville-Mezieres, France|
Just kidding..........just too lazy to sort through photos to find a true coq worthy of our attention. This one sits on our living room coffee table. A Christmas gift from one of our members. Yes, the members know we love churches and coqs. This one will come home with us.........after all we want more than dog poop to remind us of France.
