Nous avons une belle, nouvelle petite-fille


Benaut a une belle, nouvelle petite-fille et William a un nouveau cousin.
Ce soir, dimanche, nous serons à Sydney pour montrer William, son nouveau petite amie, et pour assister au début de Sydney-Hobart.

Sydney – Hobart est une course à la voile partant de Sydney chaque 26 décembre et se terminant à Hobart, pour une distance d’environ 630 miles. L’organisation est assurée par le Cruising Yacht Club of Australia en collaboration avec le Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania. Depuis sa création en 1945, sa popularité n’a cessé de croître pour devenir l’une des plus importantes courses au large, attirant chaque année de nombreux maxis européens et nord-américains. Le record actuel est détenu depuis 2005 par Wild Oats XI, avec 1 jour, 18 heures, 40 minutes et 10 secondes.


Benaut has a beautiful, new granddaughter and William has a new cousin.
Tonight, I will be in Sydney to show William, his new little friend and to take him to see the start of the Sydney to hobart yacht race

Well I think that Santa is spending way too much time there in Australia to be bringing you all of these lovely gifts this year. I hope he doesn't forget us in the other hemisphere, although he can leave the little ones with you and your family.

I'm sure you are great grandparents!

Glad to see someone loves to shoot photos of boats as much as I do. Lovely.

That's it...I'm moving!
Screw a white Christmas. I want to spend it in the sun.

I showed my friend, Graci, the picture of Madame with the Pavlova and said, "You see that? See how great that woman looks? That's it--we're moving to Australia! I want to look like that when I'm her age."

She asked what is was about Australia that I thought kept Madame looking so good.

I said, "Hell, I don't know. Maybe it's living within driving distance of the ocean. Maybe it's the koala bears. Maybe it's speaking Australian--you know, calling people 'mate' and having a 'bloody good time.' I think we should move there and find out."

Love, Monica

A new little girl in the world....it doesn't get much better than that at Christmas.

Kate said...

Yesterday (Sunday, Dec. 23) the NewYork Times had a huge, informative article on Adelaide in their travel section. You might be interested in it; it was fun to read. Congratulations on the new granddaughter, and they are truly very grand! Happy holidays to all in your family circle.

Gypsy said...

Kate, I believe if one clicks here, you'll see the article you mentioned.

Marie said...

La petite-fille semble occuper beaucoup de votre temps, M. et Mme Benaut ! :-)

encore un cadeau pour le grand-père d'Adélaide ; il semble plutôt gâté avec ces petits enfants !!


Joyeux Noël à toi et toute ta famille

Rich said...

May you be blessed in 08

cheers to you!!!

Michael said...

I'm just beginning to wonder if we need to send out the rescue choppers to the Sydney to Hobart yacht race. Are you lost at sea?

M.Benaut said...

Non, non et non, Michael, nous sommes retournés. Et nous les avons manqués, de tous nos amis dans Blogland, en particulier, vous, mon bon ami.

I now have to catch up the time I lost in Sydney, by posting the previous week's shots.
Christmas was so hectic that I had no access to my daughter's computer.

Today, the temperature in Aldgate is 40°c - and in my study. I think it is probably hotter !
They tell me that tomorrow will be hotter. Crikey !

December in Adelaide; no worries. I hope Paris is being kind to you, et Eric and that it's not too frosty !

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also [url=http://twitter.com/iuyjopg]Viagra Sales Market[/url] you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://ojagamu.freehostia.com]Viagra and Analogs[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
