Roses are Red

Hi everybody Dave did it he figured out the problem with adding photos.  Today is a great sunny day.  Dave and Alanea took me walking to The Ski Nautique which is beside Chateau Vaudois.  The roses are at the end of each row of vines.  I posted a similar photo last year.
Alanea and Dave are taking me on a road trip tomorrow.  We are going to Beaumes de Venise which is close to Avignon and Orange.  Dave is doing a big bike race and is looking forward to it very much as there will be lots of people and the race goes over Mount Ventoux.  He will get another jersey and eat lots of good food.  When the race is finished Dave and Alanea will relax.  I of course cannot relax because it is a big job to watch those 2.

May 20, 2012 a very dismall day

Today is a great day for blogging, in fact it is not good for much except blogging.  It is raining and very windy outside.  Dave took my picture too show everyone how rainy it is.  Dave put a big piece of wood in front of the olive tree to stop it from blowing over.  All of the planted trees have support and now that the olive tree has grown so much it will need support too.  Alanea is going to Greece next week so Dave and I will be home and making our own lunch.  When Alanea gets back we are going for a car trip so stay tuned.

Georg's Danish beer

Every time George and Birgit come to Les Rives they bring Danish beer.  Alanea drank this one when she was on the wagon.  It is Easter beer from Denmark.  I like it because it has a funny chicken on the front that is saying Kylle-Kylle which I think is the Danish equivalent of quack-quack and possibly a clue to why Michael Blomquist in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" was niknamed Kylle Blomquist but that requires more depth than Dave can muster apre Le Rose.  The weather is warming up and the pool is open.  Dave was cycling today because it is a holiday in France.  Alanea went to a Brocante (big garage sale) in the village today and bought nice things including goodies from the bakery which Dave ate.  I don't know about Dave, he burns 2500 calories in 3 hard hours of cycling in the Esterel and then eats 2 pasteries.  No wonder he looks like the chicken.
