Callie the collie will be seven years old in a couple of months. And she doesn't even know it. Or do you think she does? Who knows what goes on in a canine mind. Here's a holiday portrait for 2013. I don't think she could figure out why I was taking her picture.
The news here in France mostly has to do with the weather these days. There's flooding in Brittany and there are avalanches in the Alps (two skiers were killed yesterday). We've been having heavy downpours of rain over the past few hours. The noise woke me up a couple of times during the night. I can hear a hard rain falling right this minute.
