Sigh, To Be Twenty-something Again

Yesterday, the weather was lovely so I walked over to Montmartre where they were having a harvest festival. One of the nice things about Europe is that they appear to think that alcohol is a major food group.

This vendor featured beer, attractive young people and loud rockabilly music.


It looks like the graybeard in the background was also hoping to suddenly lose a decade or two off of his age.


For those of you thinking that these are not the best photos I’ve ever taken, you try to take good pictures while holding your third glass of champagne. I’m multi-tasking – dammit!

  1. Oh, you are telling me that alcohol ISN’T a major food group???
    (Puts glass of red wine down to get some peanuts…) ;o)

      Red wine! Well, now that’s health food.

      • Phew! I was getting worried there. Thanks for clarifying that!
        Sounds like you had a good time anyway and the photos do convey the spirit of the day!

      If I was at home, I’d try to do a French version of “My Plate.” Wine for the fruit, cheese for the dairy, charcuterie for the protein. I haven’t figured out what to put for the vegetable, however.

        Figs or fig jam, perhaps a nice lavender honey.Some toasted almonds ….sigh
