I'm BACK!!!!

Hi everyone, I'm back from Paris and Thank GOD too just in time for all the rioting that started yesterday.

Anyhoo it will take a day or two too post pictures we have 420 pictures.

I can't believe how nice it was there but it feels good to be home. BOY I missed it here.

We stayed 1/2 blk away from the Eiffel Tower it was amazing I got to see that thing every day and up close. The french are nice people for the most part AND GREAT LOOKING MEN!! :

Hey there! Was it interesting being there during the election? Not sure if you're much interested in political processes, but I think it would have been pretty cool...

I LOVES me some Snowy! Welcome back. Leave it out front under the bushes okay? Or is that still too close for comfort? Cannot remember the exact stipulations of the restraining order.

Yaaaay! So glad you had a good time in France!! Too bad Mme. Royal lost, I think she would have been a good leader. Ah, well, yay for missing the riots! I was lucky enough to not be in Paris last summer (the place was BURNING)...so I'm glad you're safe. w00t!!

Riots are very scary, especially if you are the target of the riot. Years ago I was caught in a riot in Germany. An anti-American riot staged by more radical elements of the Green party. I can blend in. My German was good at the time, so I just worked my way away. I was concerned that my military haircut(stubble) would give me away. I still have a "Nein, Danke" anti nuke pin someone gave me at the rally somewhere.

No restraining order

But I'll leave it for you under the bushes.

When you have so many restraining orders and pending litigation, you get confused easily. Or at least I do. Thanks.
