My step-son is in Rome staying at the apartment for awhile. He’s 21 years old and French. He speaks English with a heavy French accent and seems to have a lot of girls staring at him. He’s been pretty good actually, spending time with the old goat step-mother, his father, grandmother and aunt (who are also all here right now).

We dragged him through the Vatican museum, despite him saying he doesn’t like “old things”. But I suspect that dinner with the old goats was just too much for him. He doesn’t like his photo taken but I think he was pretty pleased with the one I took of him in the Pantheon. Shame he’s not very photogenic 🙂


Mon dieu! These old people are boring. I'm trying not to nod off.
