douze... treize...quatorze juillet est ici!

...so let me wish you:

Happy Bastille Day!

I was going to post a picture of the Eiffel Tower or the Arc de Triomphe or Notre Dame Cathedral or a portrait of Napoleon Bonaparte or Louis XVI or Robespierre or somebody, but the thought of having to choose just one takes too much effort in this Georgia heat and humidity. I found an interesting crossword puzzle with a Bastille Day theme but it was copyrighted, so ix-nay on at-thay as well.

Nevertheless, whatever you’re doing this quatorze juillet, do it with gusto befitting the day. (Hey, I made a little rhyme!)

Liberté, égalité, fraternité!

And Crêpe Suzette for everybody!

L'Angleterre est si loin derrière. Nous avons encore à adorer la Reine.

C'est dommage.

Non pas une honte. Je suis trop timide pour tirer sur les bâtards.

I didn't say it was a shame. I said it was a pity. At least, that's what c'est dommage meant when I learned French.

Je suis desolete.

We rushed to Papette, Tahiti on July 14, 1999 expecting a celebration of Bastille Day. There was no celebration. Does anybody know why? It is a French possession after all.
