Life goes on and I am happy

Alanea, Dave and I were outside looking at a brilliant new star shining brightly in the sky for my friend, see below the 2 photos.  It is dark earlier and the sun does not come up until 07:30.  The time change has thrown my breakfast and dinner schedule off and Alanea thinks that I have gone crazy.  Dave took a few photos while he was riding on Sunday, the vines a sleeping.  Dave is taking a TESL course from a language school in England.  He is always doing something, gardening is too hard on the old guy but he will work for Alex and the

Webbs.  I almost forgot I went to a Danish Christmas Fair in Mandelieu.  I thought about my friends George & Birgit in Denmark.  They are going to be grandparents of twins.  Maiken and Jens will be busy and Iben will be the best aunt in the world.  How cool is that?

Alanea's big birthday trip

We went to St Margherita, Ligure in Italy for Alanea's birthday.  It was very nice but the sea was stormy.  I have been there before but this time we stayed in a hotel at the other end of the town so that we could walk to Portofino.  Portofino is very nice but I liked St Margherita better because Dave could take me to the wine bar.  I had bread and cheese.  Alanea really had a nice time.  She gets younger everyday unlike that Old Dave.  She has a new iPad with my picture on it, how did the people at Apple get my picture?  The iPad is cool but Dave is still fighting to keep the old FrankenDell alive with duct tape and other life support.  He has the screen propped up with pave stones because he removed the hinges after the screws pooped out.  OH boy
that Dave is a piece of work.  The computrainer (and Dave) in the garage (Lance in the background, LIVESTRONG).  Now he is studying an ESL course.  If he tries teaching me English I will send him to French class.
