Lets face it. We can’t sit still! We have to move about, it’s in our ancestral nature. Well, maybe not? Most of my friends already know that we’ve spent lots of time in Europe, either traveling to and through it or living there. We know London very well and comfortable in Florence and Paris. During our 3 years in London we traveled to 13 different countries! AND the furthest we flew was a 2 hour flight to Istanbul. Yes, Europe is very accessible when you live in one of the major capitals.
Yesterday was a busy Sunday for us. We had to deal with the Daylight Savings Time change, which I think is totally pointless now. It was concocted to help save energy but that’s when we had the 1973 oil embargo. I think it should be done away with now that the US is actually leading oil production in the world. It messes with your internal clock and even the dogs were confused when it was 4:30 in the afternoon they wanted dinner!
This past weekend I was ‘invited’ to go back to South Louisiana. Lafayette, to be more precise. I grew up there, spent 36 years there. I used to know it like the back of my hand until my nephew was driving us to lunch and took some back roads that I sort of remembered. The country side in Cajun land is beautiful. The sugar cane is high and ready for harvesting. The change of color in the trees is limited to what we call ‘chicken trees’ but they are a blaze with colors of yellow to brilliant reds. The weather can be hit and miss there, hot and humid to cool and crisp. Thankfully it was just warm and not very humid. Nights were cool but you didn’t need a jacket.
