Wine, Words & Wednesday, No. 74

I don’t have any words about wine this week.  I’m having trouble using my words this week. Strike that.  I’m having trouble finding my words this week.

So, I’m letting a picture do (most of) the talking.

I took this photo last summer in Normandy, France.  This was only one of many windows like it, remembering and celebrating the bond of friendship between our two nations.  But our friendship with France has roots deeper than Normandy — our friendship stretches back more than two centuries.  France was our very first friend (thanks again for helping out with our Revolution), and though we’ve had our differences, France remains our ageless ally.

Sometimes, it’s tough to know what to say to a friend who’s hurting.  And so we simply stand beside them.

Liberté, égalité, fraternité.
