What makes me think that I took the last two photos in the small town of Mennetou-sur-Cher is that among them is this one, which is definitely of Mennetou. The old center still has part of its medieval wall, including a couple of portals like the one in this picture. And there's a plaque on one of them that says, more or less, Joan of Arc slept here. She set the example for George Washington to follow centuries later.

One of the portals in Mennetou-sur-Cher, May 2006.

You might be surprised, but our weather sucks. Summer has taken a holiday. A long holiday. The weather is not really unpleasant, and it's certainly better than sweltering in extreme heat and high humidity. But it's still a little weird to be sleeping under blankets and wearing fleece jackets in early August. At least here where we live. Oh well. This, too, shall pass.


  1. The climbing roses seem to be a common look around town. Beautiful. Do you suppose George Washington slept there, too? He slept around.
