If you want to reach the top of a hill on a bike, you must have a goal in mind. Upon awaking this morning, I realized that I had no reason to go to la boulangerie to get a baguette as we were having lunch with friends at midday. Oops. Now what am I going to do? I asked myself, lying there in my peaceful bed. Croissants quickly came to mind. That's it. We'll have croissants for breakfast with strawberries. And being quite interested in the DSK (Dominique Strauss-Kahn) affair, because I really want to see this guy go down, I will also bring home Le Dauphiné to read the latest on the scandal that daily enfolds like a soap opera here and in the USA. So with two worthwhile goals in mind I took off on my two-wheeler. *When I traveled with my globe-trotter father (known to many of you as James A.) he would often pull over at a glorious location and say to me, "Would you like to live here?" So this is to you, Dad.
