One of the things that I had forgotten about Seattle is what a total disregard the people here have for the weather, especially in comparison to the people in Grenoble. It’s overcast and cloudy here with more than occasional sprinkles, and 51 degrees, but I have seen quite a few people wearing shorts.* The kids are going to love it; Eddy is going to suffer.
*not to mention that nearly nobody is wearing a coat- usually just sweatshirts and/or vests.
A thief in Paris planned to steal some paintings from the Louvre. After careful planning, he got past security, stole the paintings and made it safely to his van. However, he was captured only two blocks away when his van ran out of gas. When asked how he could mastermind such a crime and to make such an obvious error, he replied, “Monsieur, that is the reason I stole the paintings. I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh.”
(See if you have De Gaulle to send this on to someone else. I’m sharing it here because I figured I had nothing Toulouse).
