Our liberty once again challenged. And it was not tourists sites, this was an attack on the french.
The world mourned with us. But also came the realization that this is a world problem. Other countries had been attacked too, not long before the 13th of Nov.
And the question is who will be next?
How sad that our world today is so fraught with hate. And it is within our countries, as well as from outside our borders.
So this month I will be brief,
I returned from Chadron Nebraska on the 2nd of November. Last month I said I would have a couple of photos.

I have continued to work on "the book". Took some photos of the inside of the church here in Gevrey (for the book).
The church (église) was built in the 13th century. It was built on the site of the 9th century church that had been destroyed.
Went on a couple of walks this month, butnot many photos. I am onlytwo photos. The season for flowers and even fall colors is over. I went to the top of the cote (the cote is the hill west of or behind Gevrey), for a walk in the woods. Have to admit this was also to take a couple photos for the book!
On another walk I thought the horses in the field were pretty,but this was near Arcenant.

We had a nice Thanksgiving here. Ended up with 6 at the table. Not a lot of Thanksgiving decoratations for the table here in France ( go figure).
The leaves are all dead, so no fall leaves to decorate the table. So the table decor was sparse. Found cotton balls. Keith thought it was kind of funny, cotton balls to decorate for Thanksgiving!
We started at 12:30 and talked until 5:30. No football here to interupt a good dinner. Had a large turkey (have to order way in advance) and it was perfect. All the trimmings, even found cranberries and made cranberry sauce. Always enjoy a nice dinner with friends. We added a touch of France, this year a little foie gras for an amuse bouche and we also had a cheese course with some very good s cheese that I had not tried before. So many cheeses to try and so little time!
BONNE FETE TO ALL
Quick add to this: many years ago my mother made a lettuce christmas tree with cherry tomatoes and other appetizer goodies. I found this on "Dishin with Didi" site, closest I could come to the same idea. Not that hard and very pretty holiday presentation.
