say what???

This morning while I was swimming I was thinking about the Notre Dame fire. Just random thoughts. Like how the work it will take to figure out how the fire started. Will it be more difficult or less since they didn't flood it with water. But, that it will be more difficult because the whole investigation will have to be done in French.

I've never been able to wrap my brain around speaking/understanding more than one language. And my place to start, of course, is an English speaking base so if someone speaks another language it is, by default a second or third or more language. Yeah, I know better but not intuitively. Language fascinates me but boggles my little pea sized brain.

Yesterday, I was on my way to watch something on Acorn TV and stumbled on a documentary series called A Stitch in Time. Each of the six episodes takes a different classical painting and delves into the clothing worn in the painting and even recreates some of it using the methods of available at the time of the painting. It's really fascinating. I watched three of the episodes yesterday and saved the other three for today.

I really should get out today. Maybe I'll Costco. I could use a chicken and I need butter but mainly I need gas. And a walk. So maybe that's what I'll do. I'll strap on my walking shoes, park by the gas pumps and walk the store, get my stuff and gas up before I leave. Also I could pick up a pizza slice for lunch. I'm liking this idea.
