Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder
HA...did you miss me? I know I have been gone a long time, and really have no reason, just a bunch of excuses. The biggest being that life gets in the way. Saying so long to 2010 was sure easy. Bye Bye. Now that it's 2011 I hope to blog a bit more. Not that anyone comes to my blog, but on the out-chance that someone does come see me, it would be nice if I was at least up to date with the "gossip" of the Greater Saint Petersburg area... Went to Europe again this vacation. October we were in Paris, London and Amsterdam. Loved London. Not much to say about Amsterdam, and Paris...well an old friend once said that Paris is wasted on the Parisians. I now know what she meant. We saw everything we could in Paris. The whole city, as a matter of fact...from the top of the Eiffel Tower. Damn it was cold and windy, but I took pictures along all the sides that were accessible to people. My SO is NOT a height person, so he hung onto the inside wall. To his credit, though, he did venture once by me to see the soccer field all aglow...it was the size of a 4 postage stamp square from way up there. That was it. One look, a quick self-portrait photo of us two, and back to wall hugging he flew.
