So, did you know I'm a closet Tour de France fan? OK, mostly Matt is because he likes to watch the riders. I watch it because I like to see France. And I like to see all the french companies advertising. Like Vittel (greatest water ever!!), Champion (love this supermarche), Credit Lyonais, CaisseD'Epargne, and more that I can't think of right now. And next Monday's stage starts in Pau!!! (you pronounce it like po) Which I am excited about. I served there for six weeks on my mission. I remember one year, they had a stage ending in Nancy, where my brother Marshall spent six weeks of his mission. Where we went to visit him twice. Anyway, they had an aerial shot of Place Stanislaus. Which I have been to. And it was just cool to see it on TV. Another cool thing about le Tour, is that occasionally, it has a few stages ending or starting in other countries. Two years ago, they had a stage that ended in Karlsruhe, Germany and Matt and several of his friends from the chorus rode down to see the race end there. It was about 35k south of us, and they rode there and back. It was one of the few things that he really wanted to do while we were in Germany. And I was glad he did it. So, now we watch each stage every day. Well, today we didn't because Matt was exhausted. But I'm sure tomorrow we will. And I will be watching next Monday too. The most exciting part of the stages are the end, when someone tries to break away from the Pelleton and people really start to step it up. And then they crash. But not every time. Anyway, it's fun to watch. Vive la tour!!!
This is my blog. I write about being a military wife. Which is pretty much the same as other wives. Except when my husband leaves, it isn't for a week long business trip. Sometimes I write about regular stuff. Sometimes I don't. But hey, this is me. :)
A bad day in Paris is better than a good day anywhere else.
