Saint Valentine's Day

Alanea & Dave took me to lunch on Feb 13 and I was good in the restaurant but not good enough to go to dinner on the 14th.  Dave said that because it was Valentine's Day Alanea deserved to have a nice dinner without my hungry face looking at her.  I am always hungry.  So away they went to their favorite restaurant in St. Aygulf called Pizza Napole.  They were the 1st people there but it filled up very fast.  Dave brought me home a piece of steak in his pocket just like Gramma Silcox used to do for Big Pally.  She always brought a lot of meat home for Pally, Grampa's 105 lb Labrador Retriever.  Dave said if I am not careful I will get big like Pally.

Late winter in The Var, France

The weather has been cold here but today it is warming up, 12 degrees.  Alanea and Dave took me for a walk to Domaine de Plane winery today.  They 1st drive 2km to the Bastide where Alanea buys local produce and then they leave the car while we walk 4km to the Chateau.  Along the way we saw the Mimosas blooming.  After my walk they took me to lunch at a nice place in St Aygulf, Pizza Napole, where I had some steak.  On Monday I went to the lake where I walk around looking at the birds flying on the water.  Alanea says they are making nest to lay eggs.  Tomorrow is Valentines Day so Dave has to be nice.  Long day for Dave, LOL.
