N is for Nicole

Of course, I had to devote N in the A-Z challenge to my awesome wife who has inexplicably endured my company and my landfill car for a decade.

Nicole is my rock and the person who has always been there for me etc. but I don't want to be too gushy being English and all that.

Still it does seem a long time since we were last in Paris and I ended up trying to unsuccessfuly eat that over expensive bar tab.

Fortunately a return back to the city of eternal love and extortionate bar tabs is beckoning again in the summer. I can't wait.

In the meantime I'm thankful to Nicole for keeping me on the straight and narrow, most of the time, and for slapping me back on to it when I slip off it.

I'm short of ideas for 'O' BTW.


  1. Awww such a sweet post, David. :) Your wife is very pretty!

    Congrats on the upcoming trip to Paris this summer. I'm envious. Hehe.

    PS. If you google "twitter icons" the first site that pops up is Twitter Factory. That is where I found mine. It is pretty easy if you follow their instructions. :)

    PPS. Are you on twitter?! Why are we not following each other?

  2. Wait a minute... you can't be the same guy who wrote "Castle", "Pyramid", and "Cathedral", right? That'd be toooooo weird!

  3. The good old English reserve, yep, great heritage I fully relate. Is Nicole American? O = outrageous bar tabs (and outrageous pricing in general, or the Olfactory delight of those delectable pastries) I'm already looking forward to your posts. Sue@JumpingAground (Alliteration & drabbles)

  4. Aw...very sweet post! I love the picture--your wife is beautiful! You're a lucky guy! I hope you have a wonderful trip this summer. :D

    "O?" Hmm...how about orange, octopus, October, Ontario, olives, ostrich, ozone, or office? ha ha! ;)

  5. A beautiful sonnet(well not quite)for a beautiful lady...liked this and the fact that she slaps you back on track. Enjoy your trip :)

  6. You're a very good husband to write this post. Plus, yeah, N wasn't easy! What a sweet couple, and Nicole has beautiful cheek bones. I'm guessing you've noticed.

  7. Great tribute to your pretty wife David. Sounds like a beautiful relationship too.

    How about a poem "Oh Nicole" for O?

  8. Lovely post for a lovely lady :-)

    Enjoy your trip to Paris with your lovely lady, I'm sure she's excited about having an entire letter devoted to her :-)

    Happy Blogging! And good luck with 'O'... I'm still noodling that one out myself....

  9. Mushy mushy :) That's quite expressive for an English guy. Sure you haven't been in America long? ;)
