Affordable Sporting-Goods-Store-Folders in Paris?

While I was in Paris in April this year, I did not go to many bicycle stores. In fact, I think I went to only one bike shop. And, that too was an electric bikes only outlet.

I also tried to stay away from big malls and such. I made one exception and went to Galeries Lafayette.

There was another instance when I went to a mall. When we went to visit our friend Amir, he took us around to show us his stomping grounds. During this visit, I happened upon a Sporting Goods store, in a large shopping mall near the Metro stop at Place d'Italie. I wasn't looking for anything in particular, except I was curious to see what one of these French Sporting Goods stores carried. This store wasn't much different than a Sports Authority or a Dick's Sporting Goods, that we have here at home.

Just when I thought I didn't see anything that I would not have seen in an American Sporting Goods store, I happened upon a large collection (50+) of folding bicycles. And, these guys were on sale - €50 off the regular price of €299.
While I did not test ride any of these, just by examining them visually, they looked like decent bikes. Especially because these were folders, one might be able to take them places, much easier, especially in Paris.
I miss Paris!

It's almost Friday :)

Peace :)

Sand Burrs - Not a friend of Shaggy Dog!

Shaggy and I drove to Cedar Hill yesterday so I can get turn in my Texas State Park Pass voucher and get official pass from the TX Parks Office at Cedar Hill State Park.

We stopped at the Joe Pool Lake to check it out. It was a hot, yet beautiful day here in Dallas. Shaggy didn't appreciate the heat. He hid under the bench.
While this photo is not very crisp, I still want to show it so y'all can see the devastating effect the burrs had on Shaggy's face, which you can see in the next photo.

After we got done with the official business, we decided to go hike the Duck Pond Trail at the Cedar Hill State Park. Little did I know about the dangers of taking a Old English Sheepdog walking in a trail abundant with the infamous Sand Burr. The result:
Those evil things got all over his face and he started rubbing his face with his paws and the burrs from the paws got transferred to his face and it was just a really horrible mess.

I tried pulling them burrs off but in vain. There were way …

Out goes the Chow In comes the Basil and the catters are resting

So, we finally got some cooler temps in North Texas.
In fact, a bit too cold, too soon, for some :)

So, with the new colder weather, someone who has been refusing to stay out in the yard, doesn't want to come in no more. Go figure :)

In comes the Basil plant. Too cold for it, at least right now.
Who knows though? Next week it could be back in the low 80s or some such.
Either way it is fine.
Change is good too.

The catters like to eat and sleep.
Particularly, the seniors.

And, some tired looking Juniors.

It is an assortment this time

That's right. You read the title correctly - this post contains an assortment of photographs, not necessarily in any special order.

I will give you a minute to guess what the first photograph is of :) In case you haven't a clue, you can see my little blurb about it at the very end of this post.
I had the day off Friday, so I did rest a bunch and spend time with my family. Black Kitty took a nap with me and was even friendly after I trimmed his nails :) Sometimes, reflections can be very interesting. I love looking at reflections on many objects/surfaces, such as this reflection of a fence on a motorcycle's headlight.
Just in case. 
The reflection in the first photo is one of a church. The photograph was taken by clicking at the television, while we were watching a British Murder Mystery show. If you enlarge the photo, you can see lot more details.

It has been a great week. Hope yours was too.
