Umm- was this a Bordello?

It started with a lovely seafood lunch, topped off with a chocolate mousse.
The walk up the hill offered a chance for some views:

And some shopping:

Some of which was in a Bordello:

Actually, it was a very stately house that was a single family home (palace) for many years until the family couldn’t afford the upkeep.  Part of the house was used as a movie set for two years – a French film for which the set designers created the nudes in the entry way and double stair case. Of course, dievca had to ask if it was a house ill-repute.

And a final walk through a park with ancient trees, Magnolia and other:

And a final beer for the way home:

It’s Friday, something to get the party started…


and finished quick!
Keep those Tums (Rolaids, Antacids) available.

dievca knows about Milwaukee’s Beast from $2.00 pitchers in College.
The next mornings were really rough.


Searching for the Key

Master’s drinking beers at a double-header
and dievca is drinking one beer, pondering Life.
Who is having more fun?
Definitely Master…

dievca is just…wandering in her mind.
Trying to decide what she wants.
Enjoying the silence.

The heat is back. Not quite as bad because the humidity is much lower. Still its hot enough to strip down and drink a beer. Modelo in dievca’s case.  The Carlsberg can was too large. dievca has to work in the morning.

dievca is in the “zone” pondering what she wants out of Life.
No answers are coming forth~

Life is rather like a tin of sardines – we’re all of us looking for the key.

Just say, “No”.

If a family member offers you one…

Just say, “No, I’m Good – Thanks.”
(and laugh like heck!)
