Tough Questions

 For nineteen of twenty-one days I searched

souvenir/tourist precincts  for some useful clothing

to take home.

paris_0496aI entered this shop without much hope,

as things always became tough when

the sales assistant asked my size.

 Anywhere form 2XL up was my usual reply.

3XL was always too small (and largest in stock),

even though I was wearing a loose 2XL shirt.

So it was with great pleasure that I found

a wind-cheater/sweater which fitted well

at I Love Paris on the Champs-Elysées.


paris_0514aThe second tough question we were all asking was

How do Parisians negotiate five or six lanes of traffic“,

apparently without any line markings on the road.

This was taken at the Arc de Triomphe.

It was never answered.

A Lapse in Concentration

A split second lapse in concentration

on Monday afternoon…


led to this paint work damage on my car.


Didn’t look too bad at first glance.

Second glance was a bit different though.


As was third glance….


As for fourth glance…OMG!!!

Car vs concrete…easy to see which won.

First quote $500.

Happy Christmas to the panel shops 😦
