It rocks!


Hey everyone. Thanks soooooooo much for your nice comments yesterday. I'm still in the hospital but everything is fine, I just don't know when I can be operated on ;-( Will I have enough photos to keep up? I don't know, but in the meantime here is one that was on my laptop and that I never posted because I never managed to find out who made this piece of art (I found it in the new part of the 13th arrondissement I already told you about). I still don't know, but since I have no other choice, I'll post it today ;-) If ever someone knows among my readers I'll be happy to edit this caption tomorrow... After a good night sleep (well... sort of!). Again thanks a million. Update: Someone knows... A big thank you to Alex who posted in the comments:  "The sculpture's name is "Rocher dans le ciel" and the artist is Didier Marcel". Merci Alex! And yes, I did not even realize how appropriate this was, considering the situation LOL

  2. I'm not sure of the artist, but I believe this work is called "Gallstones on Toothpicks."

    2. Thank you Alex. I take it he was not thinking of gall stones when he did that!

    3. He he he indeed it was probaly not what he had in mind Eric but it was really of circumstance. I'm glad to read that you are feeling better and you've started to take pictures again (a notre plus grand plaisir!). Take care...
      Thank you Michael, I did my homework :-D

  9. Hi Eric, I hope they are taking good care of you in the hospital! I posted to my blog from the hospital last fall, after a stomach operation: a picture of my IV fluids bag!

    Nice picture, and I'm sure you have a few more random shots hiding on your hard drive, but if you can't post for a few days you know we'll all be waiting for you when you get back on your feet.

    Best wishes from Colorado!

  10. Gallstones on toothpicks (excdellent Mrs. V!) or Rocks in the Sky, you always have just the right PDP, Eric. Hope you are well very soon.

  11. Eric… PLEASE get well soon.. We miss you already !!

  12. I believe you can ask to keep the gallstones after the op., to make cufflinks or something similar. Yuk.
    Having them mounted on silver toothpicks would be much more tasteful. Don't you agree Mrs V.?

    On second thoughts...........

    1. Oh, I wish I had thought of that when I had mine out. I had twelve gallstones. I could have had a complete set of cocktail picks.

    2. You could have made a necklace with that lot. ;-)

    3. LOOOOOOOOOOL On second thoughts what?!

    4. When I had mine out, my sister, a nurse, went to the lab and said Dr. So and so said we could have them. I kept them in a little lab cup on my kitchen window sill until they turned to dust. A souvenir, sort of.

  13. I agree, posting photos when you're lying in a hospital bed is above & beyond the call of duty! However, IF you're just bored out of your skull, I agree with Taipan Lalo (above) - most of us will never see the inside of a French hospital (not that I'm complaining about that!) so if you sneak a couple shots of what it looks like I'm sure it would be most edifying!

    Best wishes for a prompt surgery and even faster recovery!

  14. Quelle photo et quels commentaires exquis ... ! Eric, j'espère que ce n'est pas trop douloureux... Si j'en juge par ton humour même dans cette situation, je pense que le moral est quand même bon et ça c'est une marque de fabrique qui devrait suffire à t'épargner tous ces tracas. Mais bon, faut bien que tu te reposes un peu... et un petit séjour en maison de santé, ça va aiguiser ton appétit à la sortie ! Moi, ce matin, j'ai plutôt cru à d'horrbles fleurs fossilisées sur la photo, mais des rochers dans le ciel, c'est plus joli :) Bon courage et tiens nous vite informés de ta convalescence que je te souhaite rapide et facile !
