Drunk Bee in Paree!


I’ve recently returned from Paris and one day as I was eating my jambon and fromage omelette with fries (that’s ham and cheese for you English speakers) and sipping a beer for medicinal purposes, this little bee decided to keep me company. If you’ve ever walked on cobblestone streets for days you’ll know what I mean when I say you need a beer for medicinal purposes. It numbs your poor ole feet pretty well. Keep that in mind if  you travel to Europe. It works.

Anyway, this bee was really jonesing for some of my beer so when there was a smidge left, I let him in the glass. He had a grand time sucking up the suds. In fact, he couldn’t seem to stop and he needed some assistance in getting himself out of the glass. Of course, once he was out, he lolled around on my plate in a stupor. Do you think he was drinking for medicinal purposes, too? Were his little feet aching like my big ones? I think I found a soul- or is that sole- mate? 2014-08-20 13.55.10 2014-08-20 13.59.39 2014-08-20 13.57.45

Summer Travel Plans



I’m taking the younger son to Italy. My older son went to Europe with a group of students between his junior and senior year of high school. When I suggested that to the younger one, he said he wanted me to take him as he didn’t want to travel with a bunch of nerds. So, I guess I’m cooler than a nerd. Although, that might not be saying much.

The spouse and the older son are hiking the Appalachian mountains the month before I head to Italy. Ugh. My idea of roughing it is to stay at a Motel Six instead of a Hilton. Who are these people?
