Chris, love the photos (still laughing about lunchtime at VO from a couple of weeks ago). Are you shooting film or digital?

Would love to stop by -- am just a bit too far away! Recently had the pleasure of spending an afternoon at Boules and Bersa in Stockholm -- definitely recommend it.

Michael, As much as I love film, this blog is all digital.

Reverend Dick, Bocce is somewhat similar, but Italian and I think the rules are different. Plus, they drink grappa or some such thing.

Border line dorky, yet curiously compelling.

I passed on the wicker baker basket because I wasn't sure I would have a good place to store it when not in use. The photos remind me I could have figured something out.

I really like what you (or whomever) did with the rear fender on the basket bike. Looks good yet very practical.

Again, not a credible francophile photo without the lung darts. I have a bunch of wooden boat friends, and they all smoke pipes or cigarillos. I may have encouraged some of them....

OK, Francophiles, look who's getting Americanized in the worst way: http://www.nydailynews.com/real_estate/2009/10/05/2009-10-05_french_fried_as_mickey_ds_invades_mona_lisas_lair.html

You guys play petanque? Too bad our Dubuque team can't challenge you way out on the coast.
