They Said

I am wife depenbdant so I am behind a day so there are 2 posts: “Au Revoir Netherlands” and “They Said”

“Come to France”they said

”Come for a walk” they said

”Weather’s great” they said

”Fine  temperature” They said

”Take the train” they said

”In Paris” they said.

“It’s cheap”they said

”It, fast”they said.

 

They said,they said….. or so they said.

 

And what do I said?

”I came to France” I said.

”It’s 115 F in the shade” I said

”Sacre Blue” I said

“Or tabernac” I said

“So I get to Paris” I said

”For a king’s ransom”  I said

“At Le Gare de Nord” I said

”I took the metro train”I said

”Busiest in France” I said

”Packed in like stale fromage dans le croissant” I said

”Had a baguette”I said.

”Like biting into concrete”I said

”Tastes like parched papier” I said.

”Waited for a connection to Vezelay… for 3 hours”I said

” Not fast” I said

”15 hours later I arrived in Vezelay” I said

”To walk up 700 meters to my hostel”I said

” So ma sewer. What do you say to that?”I said

“SACRE BLUE” was all they said!

“Tabernac” was all I said in my best Quebecois.  Lucky for me that they couldn’t understand me

  1. Hello Mr. Morrison.
    I recently finished reading your book, Kurofune. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Very informative with an interesting story line. It moved me deeply at times and I appreciate the time you spent researching and creating it. I can only guess at the amount of work involved.
    Many thanks and may you stay healthy and keep writing.
    All the best,
    Derek Townsend

  2. Dad, Jeannie and I are thinking of you. We wish you all the best on your first day today. Love you! Kick some ass!

  3. With all that heat and walking you will be a mere shadow of your former self when you get back home. You may need to take a break and bulk up before coming back, do they serve Poutine over there?

  4. John,

    Cecile and I are enthralled with your journey. Cold beer must take on a whole new meaning in the devil’s anvil heat you are experiencing.
