In French, “les vacances”, in the plural, means holidays or vacations, any period when you stop working and go to the seaside, to the mountains, to Finland, to Canada, or to relatives’. The word comes from the latin « vacare », « to be without ». It seems related to vacuum “empty”.
I have been without Frimousse for nearly 3 months, and without RouXy for over 4 months. The place is empty. So are my days. Do I need holidays? Now we can go places since there’s no cat to look after, can’t we?
Blog de Frimousse, in French only, was started nine years ago, on July 7th. And on July 13th that will be 16 years since Frimousse moved to this place and met gentle RouXy.
On the picture this is Tigri, in the garden, on July 8th 2008. He was 6 years old.
