Question answered

Beef jerky is carrpachio. Yuck! Tonights menu starts with "Ocean plate". No thank you. I opted for fresh bread, local cheese and a pastry from VInnies "best bakery in the world followed up with apple and, naturally, chocolate. Food fit for a Queen.

Today VInnie took me up to Courcheval. The Weather was perfect, the views stunning and with fresh snow last night the slopes were crowded. I felt guilty about taking him away from his beloved skiing.

At dinner last night I got into a conversation with a lady from the West Indies. She had come over to lose weight because the themal waters here have special properties. Unfortunately she stepped off the plane and collapsed with accute bronchitis had to spend 5 days in hospital. They now say that she is not well enough to take the mineral water treatment.

She has been widowed for 4 years and said it doesn't get any better with time. In an odd way this pleased me because I wouldn't want it to although I do hope to be able to deal with it and allow myself to enjoy life.

I don't suppose it gets better with time but I think it must change slightly and get more manageable.
Glad you are having a good time. You deserve it.

Nuts in May

I am sure you will always mourn the loss of your husband but I think you are the kind of woman who can still enjoy life and the beauty and good times it has to offer. I bet your husband would want it that way. I am so glad you are getting out and about!!

Beef jerky seems to exist all over the world. I understand the strips of beef are marinated and then left to dry. I used to see strips hung out in the open in villages in Egypt and I assumed it was for the mangy dogs that roamed about. I agree with you - I wouldn't like to eat it - the drying meat was always covered in flies!

Oh, gosh, poor lady from the West Indies! I'm just getting over bronchitis myself and I feel for her!

I'll pass on the beef jerky, but hand me a slice of that apple pie, would you? ;)
