Well, guys, I'm off to Paris for the weekend.
Bring us stuff!
Yeah, bring us stuff!
They've got lots of good stuff in Paris! Sackfuls!
We stayed with our friends Letitia and Bruno, and their miniature cat Kikou.
Then we had dinner with all sorts of cool people who make movies and write books and travel all over the world.Was there any food left???
Did you bring us any?
On Sunday we had a picnic in the park. It was a tiny bit cold still for a picnic, but it was nice.
Did you bring us any???
Then we went walking around and saw lots of great stuff.
That's it?
Noshing with statuary and you're done?
And of course I brought you a present.
I knew he'd bring us something!
What is it?

It's a book! About primates. Letitia wrote it herself.
A book?
He brought us a book?
I don't get it.
*sigh* you rats never want anything but food...

What's up? been looking all over for you.
We wanted to watch the France-Italy match.
Don't worry - I taped it.
I spent the day exploring Neussargues!
Noose arts?
Neussargues. It's a nice little town. We took a train and had a sandwich and went hiking.
Sounds like a lot of work.
Except for the sandwich part.

Did you save us any?

No, we ate it all. Hiking is good exercise.
We went up and down hills and across fields and all over.
If you want to walk around in the mud, just go in the back yard.
Save yourself some trouble.
But we saw a castle!
Up close?
Were there dungeons?
Was there jousting?
Were they torturing anyone?
Noooo, we only saw it from a long way away. It was kind of a ruin.
Well. Shoulda stayed in the yard.
You rats have no sense of adventure!
Got any more pretzels?
