Le Tour de France....et fini.





Every summer we look forward to watching the Tour de France.  It all started, for me at least, with the 7 year winning streak of Lance Armstrong.  My husband is an avid cyclist...and in another time I was too (I like to call myself a former radical chic) Anyhoo, the Tour comes to a close today, congratulations to Alberto Contador.

We will now be back to our normal programming...ie trash tv in the evenings.   Since the Tour de France has been associated with the color yellow, I leave you with some yellow inspiration.  ENJOY.

BTW: When I go to France the next time this is the Tour that I have in mind. Le Trip.  A guided antique tour by Jill Mitchell. Wouldn't THAT be fun????


Have a great week.
