As I reported recently, my usual travelling companion is jet setting without me. He reports from Paris that, being summer, the place is overrun with tourists which makes it tough for a little blue muppet. Not only that, the French, who abhor English, make no effort at all to comprehend a little blue muppet. He was pleased however to get to see the world’s largest Mecanno construction. He also wonders if the Poles will be more forthcoming.
We haven’t had a Grover picture for a while. Currently he is travelling around Europe without me. Recently he was at the refurbished Rijksmusem in Amsterdam. Grover was particularly taken by Rembrandt’s masterpiece the “The Night Watch” or more correctly, “The Shooting Company of Frans Banning Cocq”. One lady commented that it wasn’t nice to take a photo of a work of art with that thing. Grover didn’t think it was polite to call “The Night Watch” a “thing”.
