You might be enlightened to learn how the French look at conditions like ADD/HD.  I find this as fascinating as those sights and smells you brag about, Lol.

So I guess we're not really pushing forward with the discussion, but instead rambling aimlessly with irrelevant jibberish.

I'll contribute:

Sounds like its the idea of pawn shops rather than pawn shops themselves that creep you out, if you have never been inside one.

I've never been to a pawn shop either.  I did sell some 14K jewlery back to a local jewler once, some earrings I had that didn't have a mate anymore and an old bracelet that was all knotted up.  Pawn shops creep me out...

"But momma told you to trust yourself... Why are you passing that off on others?" Jambles, to whom is this question addressed, and what is in relation to?

That seems like such an odd question to ask someone.  In my whole life, I've never been to a pawnshop.

Neither have I but if it was a famous one on TV, I probably would go in just to see. My friend who doesn't frequent pawn shops stopped into Pawn Stars shop when he was visiting. He wasn't able to see them though as they tape at 5am.

I just remembered; the bike was Peugot. :D

So I am pondering this thread, which is oddly amusing in various ways. I guess we must conclude that it is all right, admirable even perhaps, to have visited places like Disney, the fly-over states, the ports called on by cruises that leave from the East Coast somewhere and the places where one's in-laws reside, assuming it is somewhere that could not be deemed glamorous by any stretch of anyone's imagination. But it is a huge no-no to have gone to France. How about Germany? I see some ambivalence there. Italy is probably out too, since David resides there, but might be OK if you are either there on a cruise and only stop for 1-2 days or you are only there to visit the ancestral village outside Bari. It is downright fascinating on a slow Saturday.

What if you lived in Germany, right on the border and your best friend lived in France, so you biked there nearly every weekend for 3 years?
