This humble cottage could be a good home, except that I do not see windows.  Even a humble cottage needs windows so one  can sit indoors  while admiring the view.  I would use the row-boat to go up and down the river.  Picnics in the summer and skating in the winter.


Bastille Day:  Happy Bastille Day to the French

Today is Bastille Day, the French national holiday.  So Happy Bastille Day to the French.  The French Revolution fascinates me.  The Ancien Régime was destroyed and thousands of innocent people were guillotined.  But France rebuilt.
