Frolicking Swans of the River Rhein

Without a Monday, we cannot look forward to a Friday! Good Morning. I have set upon doing my mundane Monday to-do-list with the notion that only in four days time its week-end again. To my horror I realized that i was wish my week away, and in so doing, wishing myself a few days older. OH NO!! not going to do that at all. Yesterday I read an intersting post on my FB which stated that when you are stressed you should eat puddings, they apparently have more in common than we think - they are both a result of the conundrum SERTSEDS! Did you know that STRESSED spelled backwards is DESSERTS . . . get eating if you are stressed, maybe the desserts will tide you over. Anyway - my head is all over the show this morning, but in my run-of-the-mill Monday, I present to you my hubby frolicking with the Swans in the River Rhein. My friends from Belgium were quite astounded how weird and adventurous my hubby is and that maybe spending a night in the German Jail did not seem at all daunting, or maybe if he ventured a little deeper he would be in the French region. It was his first picnic along the river Rhein, and his first glimpse of a wonderful wedge of swans. have you done something weird lately?

He does look like he's having fun. I'm always doing something weird. I don't know what it was though off the top of my head.

It will soon come to you and then you can tell us - almost like your great hats that you love to wear.

@Inlemay Oh yes, my hat. I do love wearing my sock monkey hat. Though it will be a few months before I can wear it again. I am wearing a hat right now, but it isn't a funny hat.

Good Morning John, I loved it, I turn to 'sweets' when I am depressed or stressed, I dont put on weight luckily as I burn it off before it hits the tummy, ha ha but I have to watch the sugar levels in my blood. Age is a bugger!

I'm intrigued to know why your Belgian friends thought your husband shouldn't be doing that? It seems quite natural to me.

there are signs that say - Do not venture into the water, Entering the waters is Prohibited in French and German. Ha ha ha - but enter he did and frolic he did, and the swans just loved it, he fed them for hours.

@valmnz if he had a fishing rod near he would have fished as well - and the sign says NO FISHING - he was putting the European laws to test

I love that photo, I've never had the pleasure of frolicking with swans but then I'd be afraid they'd want to bite me.

They did take a run at me when he eventually came out. Nasty creatures in a way

Great discovery and isn't it interesting how a variety of sweet treats without chemicals added can uplift the worst sensations of depression ?

Yep Monday is the beginning of the week and Friday is the last day of the week. Eating desserts will not help in losing weight for anyone. What a lovely photo of your husband in the River Rhein with the swans. I can't think of anything weird I have done lately.

Those swans must be pretty tame. I wouldn't think a person could get so close to them.
