A List of Random Things

A proper post after I've slept, but for now, randomnity!

Things I saw in Stuttgart that I forgot to mention:
- graffiti tags with written next to them, in English, "follow us on Instagram!"
- much graffiti in English
- many, many t-shirts with English writing on them, some more sensical than others
- black pigeons (they kinda look like chimney sweeps)
- not a single crow. Not ONE. Though we did see some in a field outside the city going OM NOM NOM on some crop or other.
- not a single man with long hair. I'm wondering if this contributes to Fishy's American vibe.

Random things I have seen in Paris:
- graffiti of a fetus (graffetus?)
- loooooooooooots of graffiti. SO MUCH GRAFFITI.
- many t-shirts with English writing on them
- THREE men with long hair besides Fishy! The ratio is improving.
- four crows by the Seine (that's it so far for crows. What gives?)
- the most unfortunate URL ever (I got a pic, but the business name is Mer de Sable. If you don't get it, ask your local French speaker.)
- at least 4, and possibly 5, different branches of law enforcement: gendarmes (their badges said so) with handguns and pepper spray; soldiers in camo with machine guns; RATP (transit police) with dogs; police (their badges said this) making what looked like a traffic stop; and some uniformed gents whose badges said officier de something I cannot now remember and google isn't helping but it was something I'd not seen before.

And now I'm going to bed.

If he's carrying around a backpack, that'll do it. (The American thing, I mean.)

RATP are metro (subway) cops. When I was doing subway busking 35 years ago, they were the ones I had to watch out for. So I used the obvious mean name for them. (Please excuse) rat pee. They tried to bust me once for immigration, but luckily it was the one time (out of many) they actually stamped my passport at the border crossing, so I was legal.

Too bad someone didn't tell them that they should use hyphens.

Happy Birthday! I hope it is wonderful and full of love and joy!
One day is never long enough to celebrate, remember that from this ol' lady. The older I get the longer I seem to celebrate.
