Happy Bastille Day. Or as it's called in France, le 14 juillet. The U.S. flag is called "the red, white and blue," and the flag that symbolizes France has the same colors but in a different order: blue, white and red — bleu, blanc, rouge.
The sun is out this morning and even the prospect of a restricted diet for three days and a hospital visit isn't getting me down. By Friday, it will all be over. Time to go out with the dog. We had good friends over for a nice Sunday dinner yesterday, and we have other friends coming over for a pizza extravaganza next Saturday. That frames things nicely.
