Six weeks . . .
Fred and I are moving in six weeks. I can't believe how quickly time is passing. Luckily, most of our items are packed; however, there still is a lot to do. Most importantly, we want to spend as much time with our friends as possible. Tonight, we had dinner with Meriem and Dimitri, the couple who introduced us. We barbequed (we're trying to get as much in as possible, as we suspect we won't be doing much of it in Paris). Meriem suggested bringing a hibachi grill with us to France. Dimitri did not think it would go over well with the neighbors. Fire hazard. Eventually, we'll have to get one as Fred is looking forward to cooking hamburgers and hot dogs for all of his French friends. Having been in the U.S. for five years he's learned to enjoy many of our customs, earning him the nickname among his countrymen as "le Americain".
