I was ready for bed by 8:30 last night, but Louise got me to buck it up for another hour…I was really tired. I don’t have any idea as to the reason, but it was really hard to make it past 9. Then, after falling immediately to sleep, I had to wake twice during the night and hobble to the toilet…I’m falling to pieces… I refused to get out of bed this morning until 8:45, and then it was tough. The big thing hanging over our heads is getting the laundry done. It really got behind. One of the reasons we stopped here in Antibes, is the wash machines. They are good and they are large. We had 3 washers going all at once. I don’t think we had any clothes left to wear except those we had on, and I wore them yesterday as well. Tomorrow I will be “sparkling clean”. The sun is to stay with us a couple more days at least, so we are going to take the train in Monaco for the day. We will be thinking of all of you. Today we met Mâirçad (more-aid) and Theo. They are taking time out of their lives to travel Europe for an extended time. They have a new ATV and caravan, two black labs, and are excited about their new adventure. Having owned their own business (a restaurant) in England, they decided to take this adventure while having the opportunity. Tonight is barbeque night, and I’ve been given the chore to put together the great “American” hamburger…let’s hope that I can hold up to my responsibilities.
