My friends

It is not always easy to post on my blog because Dave and Alanea keep me very busy.  I watch everything.  I thought that I should post some pictures of my friends Chester and Cargo.  Dave will take some pictures and I will post them next week.  It is fall in the Var, cloud and sun 10 to 15 degrees but damp cold.  Not like Toronto cold but the kind of cold that goes right through to your bones.  Christmas is coming and my auntie Jane's birthday is November 29.  Dave bought new shoes or around the house stuff because his other shoes are for the gym.  Chester is at his house and doing very well.  He is a swimmer with a special life jacket now.  Cargo just likes to chase a frisbee in the ravine in Toronto.

Dave in England

Wow Dave went to England for a few days and did a bunch of things.  I cannot easily go to England because for various silly reasons but that's OK for now.  Dave saw the poppy exhibit at the Tower of London, he met Chester the baby Schnauzer, he walked around Guildford and London, drank Coors Light beer and best of all he spent time with Brad and James my friends and Oscar's family.  Dave said the new house is great and that Chester has taken over completely.  When I meet Chester I have some very funny stories to tell him.

Alanea's birthday

Today is Alanea's birthday October 23.  I got up early to eat my breakfast with Old Dave and then I got a nice present ready for Alanea.  The present is a ceramic Seahorse or as the say in France a Hippocampe. I sometime go with Dave and Alanea to The Hippocampe restaurant on the port at Frejus for lunch and that's where Alanea got the idea.  Dave found the Seahorse, which he named Trigger, at a big pottery place close to my house (Alanea with rename him).  I have attached a Seahorse selfie.  Auntie Sharon was here for 1 week and I took them for a nice walk on my beach.  My good friend Anne got a beautiful flower for Alanea.  Now I am resting because Dave will take me and Alanea for lunch to a nice restaurant later.  Uncle Georg sent a very nice birthday email to Alanea from Denmark today.  Uncle Alex, Auntie Tatiana and Stephan have invited us for dinner tomorrow night.  I am quite busy these days.  Please comment if you want to see something special on my BLOG and Jerry what's wrong with the Toronto Maple Leafs?

Interesting Life

I have quite an interesting life here in France.  People come and go, I ride in the car to places I can hardly pronounce but neither can Dave.  Alanea keeps working and going off to funny places with long names and longer history (Alhambra, Les Issambre).  One thing that never changes is that people are still having babies, lots of babies.  Despite the craziness in the world and all of uncertainty people still seem to think that they can safely and confidently raise a child.  I am only 12 but I turned out OK I guess.

One thing that Dave keeps saying is, "these little children will never know a world without high speed internet and by the time they are old enough to swipe a finger across a screen the whole world will have changed again".  Well I don't get too excited about kids really unless they are the children of my friends and then I really like them.  Dave brought back Toronto Maple Leaf Jerseys for our friends' babies from Denmark.  They had twin boys a few months ago and here they are at home in sunny Denmark.

Auntie Sharon's visit

I am very busy with Auntie Sharon.  Dave & Alanea took us to the beach yesterday and then they brought me home to rest.  They went back out and I slept on the couch while they went to Hippocampe a very nice restaurant in Frejus.   The weather has been good for visiting.  I am not sure what we will do today but I will post again as soon as I know.

Sharon's visit

Sharon, came from Toronto.  She came without Cargo her little boy, he is at the babysitters I put his photo on the blog to so everyone can see him.  Sharon came via London and she brought me

a nice new toy.  I will have a lot to post this week with Sharon here I am very excited and Dave is feeling much better.  Alanea is excited about having company (Roquebrune Sur Argens is nice but it is not Paris) but she is working too hard.

If Uncle Brad would send a photo of Chester I would post it too.

The Trauma or Why there has been no blog post since my birthday.

Dave has been resting a lot since August 17th because he had a little mishap while riding his bike.  Details are available but sufficient to say that he is much better after 3 weeks of TLC and pretty nurses patching up his road rashed sorry ass every 2nd day.  For those who don't know he broke his clavicle and scapula which is the most common cycling injury.  He is doing OK now except that today was the last nurses visit.  No more patches.
I went to the beach today with Dave and Alanea and took more pictures.  I love the beach and it sure is good to see Dave up and about.  Alanea has had her hands full with Dave but since he is in exile in his room we don't see much of him.  Alanea gives him good drugs to ensure that he stay out of sight.
More to come in a few days when I have more to say.
