Cat's away Dave will build shelves

So Alanea went to Poland and Dave went to a Galette des Rois party on Monday evening held by the ASR Cycling Club. What is Gallette du Rois you ask.

Partial definition

The Galette des Rois or Cake of the Kings, commemorates Twelfth Night when the Three Kings arrived in Bethlehem bearing gifts for baby Jesus. A single porcelain fève (charm) is hidden in each galette.Epiphany's date is on 6th January but you can find the galette in every boulangerie in France during nearly the whole month.

Very cool, Dave found the charm in his Galette but gave it to the club Pres. tres politique.

Dave is having his 1st real life experience with French bureaucracy, more on that to come.
