Hello to all my faithful readers and friends on this beautiful, warm and sunny Thursday! Well, here I am, back at home again. It was quite a reunion with my little Muffin! I’m sure we were both just as excited to see each other. She did not want to leave me, just kept wanting more attention and love, while also purring non stop! And I am quite certain she is looking forward to helping with my blog once again. Especially the award posts, she just loves those.
I guess you probably know by now that I thoroughly enjoyed my little holiday!! But it’s worth repeating anyway. It was just fantastic!!! And to be in such a place on my birthday, well, that just made it even better. And my beautiful guide and wonderful friend, Ilona, made this holiday and birthday even more special for me!
So, where was I? Well, actually I already mentioned it in Part 3 of my vacation posts. I really can’t be more specific than saying the name of the city, which I did. But, I will be posting a poem shortly that will also let you know where I have been. I know that many of you have already guessed it right, and I am sure that the rest of you will know after reading the poem. Yes, I know. I’m a terrible person. I just can’t help it.
When I left yesterday morning, it was hot and humid. And that was right at the start of the day. Talk about Nice!! The taxi driver, on the way to the airport, said he prefers the cooler temps of winter. You know, getting down to 12 or 15 C. I said, that’s a nice spring day back home. He asked if I was from England, I said no, from Canada. In winter I said, it can get down to -40C and sometimes even colder. He turned aroung and stared at me. Nearly hit a guy on a motorcycle!
There are a lot of motorcycles in that city, small ones. The streets are also very narrow and parking is almost non existent. So small motorcycles are a good choice for sure. Especially in one area of the city called old town. It really is a fascinating section of the city. Very narrow streets between buildings. Really they are more like sidewalks, but people do drive cars through there as well. If I went into that section by myself, I would get lost for sure. I would still be there wandering around. Never to be heard from again. But at least I would be warm.
Muffin and I would be very happy living in Nice! Hey, I found out they even have chipmunks over there. Maybe not around the city, but in the country at least. So Chipmunk Appreciation Day would fit over there too. Does this mean I might move over there? Sigh. Unfortunately some things are just impossible to do. But it is a wonderful thought anyway! It’s good to think about wonderful things, joyful things, right things, positive things! Instead of always looking at things from a negative viewpoint. The more we think about the positive things in life, the less we think about the negative. A lot of people try to get rid of negative thoughts. But they forget it needs to be replaced with all those good and positive thoughts which help to make us feel so much better.
In case you’re wondering, I won’t be showing all of my pictures right away. I want to save a lot of them for winter use. When the temps are around -30 to -40C, it will be great to use these pictures and remember those Nice hot days.
Well, guess it is time to close this off once more. Thank you everyone for joining me back here at Steve’s Country. Hopefully I will get back to daily reading of your posts and getting my posts done as well. Until next time, enjoy the remainder of your week and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
