We had the wettest May 17 ever (i.e. since they started measuring precipitation in 1893). A French colleague of mine who arrived just a couple of months ago was wondering if everyone had been drinking before the parades (he himself had started with a looong breakfast and some champagne with some friends and admitted being a bit tipsy), as everyone was happy and smiling and cheering, even if it was pouring down...
In other words you have many reasons to celebrate!
I've been celebrating with friends and family;
A lot of volunteer organizations are having cafes and other events on May 17 for fundraising and I've spent most of the day during the parades working in a café.
Later I joined the family for dinner.
I hope you're having a great day as well!
Hipp hipp hurra!
Thank you! I just got home from town (have been out of the house for 12h now and need to rest). A nice day. Do you celebrate as well?
Happy Birthday Creak's, hope you have a funtastic day!
Thank you very much, Linda!
As far as I know, all my family and friends are safe, but we are all in shock. And it is good to know that people all around the world cares. Once again, thank you!
Hey figure I check in to see if you are doing any better?
How is it going? Long time no chat.
Car is going well now that it is repaired. I haven't been reading the thread, what happened to your knee?
Aw, gosh, Creaks.... A belated thanks ... I've been about other things, and just now logged in here to see your message. For the record, it was a fun day.
EEE!!! I'm buying a brand new 2010 hyundai accent hatchback tomorrow! If everything goes right I should have it by the afternoon.
