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.

Valentines Day and spring is coming

Dave is going to Poland tomorrow Feb 19 and Alanea is smiling for some reason.  She said that we will eat popcorn and watch shows on TV.  I have a few photos of Valentines Day Champagne and my new friend Lang.  Dave got the trophy at the cycling club annual general meeting for showing up.  Dave will bring some photos of Warsaw home for me to post next week

San Remo for me

Dave and Alanea took me to San Remo in Italy on Friday until Saturday.  It was very nice and we ate a lot of food.  San Remo is an easy drive Dave says.  The total round trip was only about 250 kms.  I like going because I get to walk everywhere and I went to the home of the Nobel prize guy, that's me and Dave at the house.  That was interesting.  We saw a big Russian church, there is a lot of Russian influence in San Remo.  There was a big bike race going on so Dave was quite interested but worried about the speed of the racers with dogs and kids running around.  I was on my leash eating gelato with Alanea. On the way home we stopped in Bordeghera just before entering France.  We ate lunch and bought some big jugs of wine.  Spring must be coming soon but it is cool outside.

Mid January laziness

As January drags on my walking outside is later in the day when it gets warmer.  It is funny weather here because some days it is 15 degrees in the morning and other days it is minus 4.  The sun is getting warmer and it will soon be February.  Every year is different.  I like February because it means new life here is the south of France.  Things start to grow but not me, Alanea says I am fatter.  Alanea took a few photos today when we were out walking.  Dave is back to his normal dorky self whatever that means and Alanea is busy blogging stuff on Linkedin.  It is nice here but humid, I let my hair grow like Ringo when it is colder.  Dave and Alanea's fitness club is having it 1st anniversary today and Dave might go check out the cup cakes LOL, if Alanea goes I will go too.  Alanea went to the live simulcast of the Opera last night with a nice lady named Jehan.  Dave introduced them, she is a neighbour and a Chemical Engineer.  The Opera was called The Merry Widow but Dave said The Hairy Widow and Alanea gave him heck.  That Dave will never learn to shut the heck up.  If you want to know something let me know.  I wish Uncle George would come here.

New Year 2015

We stayed home for New Years eve but our neighbours Auntie Francoise and Uncle Heinz invited me (and Dave & Alanea too) for dinner on Tuesday before New Years eve, they live in Switerland but have a nice house next to me.  We went for a nice walk to the vineyard Domaine des Planes and were surprised that Mimosa flowers were blooming on the trees.  We walked on the beach one day and watched the surfers so it has been pretty good.  I like walking but I think that I am having some trouble hearing as good as when I was younger.  Dave carries me when I get tired but most of the time I walk.  Uncle Brad is coming to visit on April 3 for 2 days.  Alanea bought a Gallette du Roi.  It is a round cake with a prize inside.  Uncle Heinz got the prize.  Today is January 3 2015.  I am looking forward to having a wonderful year.

Christmas 2014

This my 13th Christmas with Alanea & Dave.  I am very happy with everything  Here are some nice photos.

The weather has been very good, cool but sunny for the past few days.  I have to wear my hoodie jacket that Alanea bought for me.  Dave takes me everywhere and we get an early start every morning.

January 1st will soon be here.  I hope that the weather stays sunny because Dave said it can only get warmer.  The Mimosas will soon be blooming and that is another photo / blog post for sure.  This year they flowers on the trees should be brilliant / brilliant.

Alanea just received the NCIS New Orleans ornament today in the mail from her sister in Toronto.  She went there on vacation 2 weeks ago.  Holy Creole Christmas.
