Warren takes off.

Hey there you are, Warren. I've been looking for you for days.
I've been playing hide & seek with the rats. I think I may have won, but I couldn't get the door open to find out.
Ah, yes. The rats did seem rather satisfied with themselves recently.
That's better. It's a good hiding place, but it's freezing in there!
I'll bet. Nancy's starting to pack for the trip to Washington. Let's get a good spot.
We should be comfy in here.
Where's that package of dark chocolate eggs from Easter?
I though it was in the cupboard.
Not there. Have you rats seen the dark chocolate eggs?
Who, us? Chocolate eggs? No, never saw 'em.

Darn. Oh well, we don't really need more chocolate after all.
Time to go!
Bye, everyone! It's been a great vacation here in France.
Leaving already? OK.
Finally they're gone.
Break out the eggs!
Mm, these things are great!
Good call to hide them behind the catfood.
Hey, who's that at the door?
No fair! They're back!

Uh, hey, you're back...
Yes. Paris is closed because of some volcano in Iceland.
We're stuck here until Monday.


What have you got there?
Oh this!
Um, I guess the chocolate eggs got sort of accidentally put with the catfood.
Those cats. Can't trust 'em!
They seem to have eaten them all, too.
Bad cats!

Maurice in Marseille

Another weekend, another adventure! This time we're off to Marseille in the south of France, with friends Luiz, Mev, and Laisheng.
The big new bridge at Millau. The opening last year was cause for lots of celebration around here.
Finally in Marseille, it was only a little bit rainy. The train station is quite elaborate and nifty and has these great pedestals just waiting for a posh rabbit to get up on and have his portrait done.
Some of the statuary is quite dangerous.
I wanted to go for a boat ride, but my companions didn't fit through the gate. Aww.
Laisheng is my friend.
On Sunday it didn't rain at all, so we took the tram, and busses, and walked walked walked all over the city.
We discovered more dangerous statuary.
The statue guy was pretty good at keeping the statue bears at bay, but then he dropped me in a puddle and I got all soggy.
Took me all day to dry out.
Laisheng likes cars.
He posed with Porches and Ferraris (on the road we passed a Ferrari once!) and even a Lambourghini.
After all that walking we were so tired we went right back to the hotel and slept like logs.
That's it for Marseille!
