Sunday Sunday Sunday & no funny cars in sight

We left the USA in 1980 but I assume everywhere still has the "Sunday Sunday Sunday" advertisements for Funny Car Races at their local race tracks...

Speaking of funny cars... some people think the Citroen 2CVs are funny looking. I think they are COOL! Saw one recently in the US Import Supermarche parking lot at Sandy Ground, St. Martin, FWI. I like the Ferarri sticker on the windshield :)

The Citroen 2CV will be celebrating its 60th birthday in October. France is celebrating the 60th anniversary of the 2CV with a special exhibition of the car at the Cite des Sciences et de L'industrie in Paris. This would be an interesting event to check out if you were doing a French canal barge cruise (cheap air fares for Sept/Oct 2008)... Hey, I try!

Tropical Storm FAY was not even a Tropical Depression when it passed over us. Late Thursday afternoon we had some lightning and thunder which Willow did NOT like. She was pretty nervous and wanted to hide but just couldn't stay put in one spot. Buffy was a bit worried but not much... She is the Slayer, after all :)

Speaking of which, they did find another palmetto bug (a 2-inch or larger cockroach looking bug for those of you fortunate not to know) the other night and brought it down below to play with. Why must cats do this? Yuck! I hate these bugs. Fortunately we very rarely have them. I had to chuck this one outside before Willow brought it into the bed to play with. Even dead they are gross.

We have good WiFi today so we are taking advantage of doing web stuff. Where to begin???!!!

I have added two new French barges to our web site: ENCHANTE and NAPOLEON plus I have done a bit of blogging and adding to our Charter Newsletter. Whew!

Yesterday we went for a swim. The water was so clear and almost flat. Just perfect! The water temperature has gone up a bit though which is not good hurricane-wise, but it was still refreshing.

Oh, I have to look at and check out the new FEIN MULTIMASTER. This is definitely one of our favorite tools and we have heard that they have made an improvement for attaching the various blades. So here's the link so you can check it out, too: CLICK HERE!

Back to work!
