Resting now

Alanea is back from Canada and her trip to Russia is completed.  She did very well in Russia she is the only person in the whole world to sign a new client in Russia for the past year.  Mr. P cannot keep Alanea down for long.  At least that's what Dave says.  I went to the beach today with Dave and Alanea before Dave unceremoniously dumped me at Margo the groomer's shop.  If Dave thinks she is so pretty maybe he should go and have a haircut there instead of leaving me.  I must admit it tickles when she trims my dickie do.  I love the beach and Alanea has to pick me up or I won't go to the car, I really run at the beach but sometimes Dave has to protect me from big dogs.  I can handle myself but it makes Dave feel good to step up from time to time.  I will post a photo tomorrow of me with my new haircut, right now I am watching NCIS with Alanea.  There's a photo of old Dave in the village and a photo of Margo's car.  I like her but I don't like getting my hair cut.  That's me shopping at Castorama (the French Home Depot).

Happy Birthday Uncle Brad

Today is Uncle Brads birthday.  David gave me a little trim and a bath today.  I usually go to the village for a haircut, Margo does it.  I don't like it either way but if it must be done I prefer Margo over old Dave.  That's picture of Dave trimming my butt.  Alanea just got home from having her hair cut too, we do everything together except go to Russia.  Alanea is going to Russia next week.  I will be stuck at home again with Dave.
There is a big Harley Davidson convention in the village for 3 days.  I might go to see it, they sure do look cool.
It is very nice today 25 degrees, sunny.

Alanea is home from Canada YEA

Alanea came home from Canada on Tuesday, today is Friday May 1st and it is a big holiday in France.  I can relax a little today but I still had to go to the market in St Aygulf, The Grande Bastide for local vegetables and the Spar grocery store because Alanea likes the store managers.  They only open for the summer camping season but they cater to 3000 campers.
Alanea brought me my own wash cloths from Toronto so now my face will be cleaner than old Dave's face.  Alanea also brought me some special cookies.  I am happier when everyone is here with me.
Hello Cargo, I hear that you are quite a guy.

Life, love and technology

I love my life (but not when Alanea is away). I like my cookies but would give them up for a day if Alanea were here, Dave is a dink however his new phone technology is very cool.  He now knows how to take my photo and post it to my blog even though he uses android and his computer is a MAC.  Dave is not very smart so how does he figure this shit out?

Update and apology

It has been several weeks since I updated this blog.  Dave has celebrated his 65th birthday, the sun has started to shine ever day and it is warm not.  Dave is trying to stay busy and says that some days he feels overwhelmed and others he is looking for thing to do.  I am happy except that Alanea is in Canada until April 28th.  It has been suggested that I retire my blog because I am to busy or lazy to update it regularly.  Does that mean that if the olive tree does not have fruit for a year you should dig it up and pitch it in the garage.  I think not.  We will try harder, let me know if you are interested in anything specific.  I have posted a few nice photos.
Dave has a new Samsung Galaxy smart phone and it is much smarter than he is.  The camera is broken and the BlackBerry is 8 years old.  Now that he has figured out how to take pictures with the phone and download them to a mAC from Android we should see more blogs.
The 2nd photo is Alanea's jasmine, she is missing the best blooms.
The 3d photo is me in the new growth on the vines at Domaine des Plane.
Old Dave is doing selfie in the 4th.  Actually Alanea took the photo.
Now that Dave has a new phone Alanea will get an iPhone.

Sunshine, daffodils and me.

The sun is getting warmer and I really like to sit in the sun.  Dave and Alanea take me walking and I won't go inside so Dave has to keep walking.  With the warm sunshine comes the spring flowers.  Alanea has planted lots of stuff but the little daffodils are the first to sprout.  Soon I will go to the beach and run in the sand.  Alanea put a soft cushion out for me on the pink stones.  That was very nice but I can only sit while I can see or hear Alanea.  When she goes upstairs and out of sight I follow her every move.

Spring and the vines

Dave just got back from 4 days in Warsaw Poland were he met a few investment guys and helped a friend.  He took me to Domaine des Planes to buy some wine today and the vines are looking good.  Soon they will be full of new growth.  I will return and post a photo in a few weeks to show you the big difference.
