Paris Again!

Hello from the rainy Philadelphia suburbs!

It is a lazy Sunday.  Rainy and grey outside but cozy in here on the couch between the two snoozing cats that live here at the Chateau Working Stiff.  I am toying with the idea of baking cookies later. Who knows – I may even have some cider!

Several days ago, I wrote a post about the London leg of the trip to Europe we took this summer.  Over the past few days, I have completed two slide shows of the Paris leg of that trip, and have loaded them to YouTube.  The only reason for the two shows rather than one is that I broke it up in an effort to avoid putting viewers to sleep!  Please find the links below and enjoy the tour. read more

Sunny Morning in London

Greetings again from London!  We have been zipping around the city for several days doing some touristy things and some not-so-touristy things.  I think at this point we are mostly adjusted to the time change but it is still a bit hard to get up early in the morning.  Mrs. Working Stiff has been very pleased at the very fall-like weather here.   One note to myself for future visits would be that it would be good to bring a light jacket or sweatshirt even in July or August.  Also, the need to bring that umbrella is no joke! Fortunately, we packed (and used) two of them. read more
