May 2017

The new Bacchus bike jersey-
from the Hungry Cyclist Lodge
  Merry month of May

I know that I say how fast the month passes, but this month  it really has. Or maybe  it is because I have been very busy. Busy is good.

I leave for Detroit  next week, so I am writing a very short summary of half a month. After Detroit I will travel to Ava Missouri to see my sister and nieces.

The presidential election is done and Macron is our president. The election was the 7th of May and Macron won handily....yeah. And on the 14th he as sworn in as president. The next round of votes for legislation are in June. It appears Macron is going to shake up the old politics of France a bit. He has picked people from all parties for minister positions. Very interesting, and people who are competent, what a good idea!

My photo club had our exposition over the weekend of the 6-7 of May. It went well and this year there were some very good photos. Competition is mounting
Exposition before anyone arrived

And then they came- we had 488 visitors in 2 days

The 3 winners by public vote
I came in second with the vote of the club. I am happy with that.
Happy with this photo
Continue to work on the TOUR DE FRANCE. Again, note 7th of July on your calendars and watch the Tour as it passes through Gevrey.  Nuits Saint Georges is the finish,  which is about 12 km south from here, but the route the Tour is taking is longer. The tour will turn east for a ride on the plain and then enter Nuits Saint Georges from the south.
Paper flowers and more paper flowers.....hope it does not pour rain that day!!!
Three jerseys so are photos of the Yellow and Green. We have one mountain jersey too (white with red polka dots).

Planted the garden, perhaps photos next month if it is pretty, just one now with the irises . But that task is done.
And yes the garden house is leaning. It needs to be
Also, I finished the articles for the Assoc Gazette due the end of the month - Flore and Faune  12 photos color layout, patois of the Côte D'Or and back cover photo.
On the 13th of May, the Assoc had a collection of old photos or post cards. Spent the day scanning old photos and old post cards.

On Sunday the 21st, it is our outing to Autun with 16 people. Then I will be off to the USA.

That is all from Gevrey-Chambertin this month. No recipe, keeping this month short and I need to start packing.
