Another Busy Day

SUMMARY: Mostly business today.

Spent the day in a meeting again, but this is a good kind of meeting (yes, there really is such a thing). Still, it was a long day with lots of ideas jammed between my ears.

Right after we adjourned, we went out for dinner at the jazz bar named Upstairs--written upsidedown--which means that it was downstairs (really). And just like that, my day was done and already it's past my bed time.

I did get out for a quick walk at lunch, just me and Mr. Camera. Saw more dogs but got no portraits. The old buildings around here are so different from the so-called old buildings in California, but equally as interesting as any of the row houses in San Francisco.

There is art everywhere. This statue crouches below a skyscraper not far from my hotel. It makes me look up nervously every time I walk by.

Here's one of those "are we in the U.S. or are we in Canada?" scenes. The Frenchman in our group says that, in France, the stop signs stay "Stop", not "Arrete." And France is supposed to be fanatic about the purity of its language!



  1. You look so professional when you're not running in agility clothes :) We don't ever dress that nice anymore - love that!

    Looks like you are having a grand time. Going to catch up with the rest of your trip.

  2. OMG, is that a *black* sweater you're wearing? And what? ...Can it be? Not a *single* dog hair on it? Ah, the benefits of being sans chiens for a few days. :)

  3. And black pants, too! You don't know how much time I spent in the hotel room monday morning removing dog hairs from my *clean, fresh-from-the-dryer* sweater and pants. Jeepers!
