Mercredi maddness

Alanea went to Moscow on Sunday and returns tomorrow thank goodness for that because Dave is not as nice as Alanea.  Dave had his cardio stress test today and passed so he can take me for a nice walk.  Dave planted 3 trees at Auntie Tatiana's, Stephan and Uncle Alex's house today.  They were in St. Petersburg for 10 days and just returned.  Uncle Brad is coming on Friday, I want to ask him how he is feeling since my friend Oscar went to heaven.  I want to tell Uncle Brad to make sure that new little Chesteroo behaves himself and respects his elders (me).  This weekend is Easter weekend.  I think the neighbourhood looks busier.

Today, April 9th is Old Dave's Birthday

When The Beatles sang "Will you still need me, will you still feed me when I am 64" Dave was just starting to have sweet dreams, he still does, it drives Alanea crazy.  April 9th, today, Dave is 64.  Dave is still going strong despite numerous attempts on his life by fate and folly.  It is obviously God's will that he soldier on and someday, somewhere, somehow make a difference.  When Dave was injured and speaking to Dr. Galia about the difficulty that he was having coping with the long healing time, Dr Galia told Dave that he thought that he had survived "for a reason" and the best was yet to come.  Well Dave is now back "en forme".  He is so proud of Alanea for pulling off the nearly impossible task of relocating to a new country and getting paid by the Russians.  Mr. Putin should meet Alanea, the worst that could happen would be a short term Vodka shortage in Moscow.  Well it is 03:30 on April 9.  I am going to get into bed with Alanea and keep her warm while Old Dave finishes this posting for me.  I am feeling good after my dental work last week.  I have new food and cookies, I never work and the warm sun will be shining on me once again in a few hours.  I will post a picture of Old Dave later.  Maybe one of the girls at the fitness club will give him a kiss for his birthday.

2 Seniors

I got my new food yesterday.  The bag is very big but I will eat it all up.  Alanea ordered it and the nice man delivered it right to my door.  Alanea says I now get Senior food but I can still have cookies.  There is also a new toothbrush for the few teeth that I have left.  The other old bugger is Old Dave in his painting cloths pouring Rose from a box.  He will be 64 year old on April 9th and would like to remind everyone that 6 + 4 = 10.  This post is short because I am

going back to bed.

New table, nice restaurant and flowers for Alanea

I considered my limited options today for about 2 seconds.  I could stay home all by myself and worry about the crazy world or I could pester Dave until he took me in the car to Plan de a Tour outdoor market and wine cooperative and then a nice restaurant in Vidauban and then home to help put the new patio table together.  I was in the car faster than you can say ALLEZ.  Alanea bought nice flowers (5 euros K) and Dave chose the restaurant in Vidauban (32 euros).  I did not get anything at the restaurant but my picture taken with old Dave.  The table works and Alanea is happy with her flowers (and 5 litres of rose in a box for 18 euros).  A nice day sunny for a drive in the French countryside.
April 9th is Dave's 64th birthday.  The old bugger can still cut the mustard, especially now that Alanea bought a whole new set of sharp Swiss Made knives today (how much K, you have to ask LOL).
Spring time in the VAR.

What a world

There are so many things going on right now that I don't know where to start.  Normally I would write a little note and then post a few photos however the world appears to need intervention.  Since readers of this blog are seeking knowledge not content I ask that you stay tuned.  Send suggestions, I will consider all.

I do like car riding except when the roads are windy then I can get an upset belly.  This trip was good because Uncle Rick drove his car like a star.  I went to Milano with Rick, Karin, Alanea and of course old Dave.  Dave carried me when I got tired of walking and I did not get to go in the churches or the Last Supper by Leonardo De Vinci but Dave told me all about it.  Jesus was OK.  I did go to the Duomo, but stood outside.  I went to lunches at nice places and had gelato at KOKO.  Alanea went to La Scala for a lighted tour of the theatre while Dave and I walked around and looked cool.   The apartment was huge and I did not mind staying alone a few times while Dave took care of Alanea instead of me.  I share old Dave sometimes.  Here are some photos.  Milan is a nice place, very civilized.  Dave bought sexy Castelli bike bib shorts, he thinks they will make him look like a hot young Italian cyclist, Alanea just shakes he head at Dave.  I would go to Milano again.
