The Next Mission

The Frog and I were surprised by Papa Frog to find that we'd already been booked for our first vacation within a vacation so soon. This Thursday we are off to the French-German border for four days. Strasbourg and Freiburg im Breisgau are on the visit list. I do happily have a memory disk reader now so I'll have pictures to share when I get back as well as stories. However, to those of you who have supported me through my pictureless days, you made me realize again the power of prose. So, sometimes in the future I just may happen to 'lose my camera' to play with the power of the written word.

See you in a few days! Coq au Reisling, Munster Cheese and Gewürztraminer here I come!

Hey Nerissa! *waving*

I found your blog via Cardamom Addict and I'm so glad I did. It is lovely here.

Riesling, Muenster cheese and Gewürztraminer are amongst my faves. Totally delish! Sounds like you're in for a fabulous time. I'll be back to view your photos and read your stories.

I agree with you about the power of prose. I am a sucker for well-written poetry and prose. It is so wonderful and refreshing to hear or read a piece in which (to quote a line from a Def Poetry performer) "...ideas kiss similes so deeply that metaphors get jealous."

Lucky you! And lucky us for getting to hear all about it!! Enjoy your trip and we'll eagerly await your return...

Wow, Coq au Riesling sounds wonderful - I'm used to the red wine version, coq au vin, so I'll be interested to read about the white wine kind!

lynne: glad to have you stop by! Well, I hope you enjoy my write-ups on the trip.

michelle: thanks! And I barely return before being sent off on my next mission. Ahhh... Sacrificing my thighs for blogdom! ;-)

Zoomie: You'd love it, I'm sure.
