Today’s entry for Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge comes to you all the way from France.  So pour a glass of wine (Burgundy, please); assemble a plate of pâté, Comté cheese, crusty bread and some slices of melon; turn on today’s stage of le Tour and get ready to say, “Mon Deiu!”


At the Tourist Office in Mélisey, this guy is dressed for le Tour, which will end at La Planche des Belles Filles on Monday.


Spotted in Beaune, outside the Dali exhibit.


Inside the Hospices de Beaune or Hôtel-Dieu de Beaune, a former charitable almshouse in Beaune, France, founded in 1443 by Nicolas Rolin, as a hospital for the poor.

    “Mon Dieu!” Janet. Couldn’t resist that… 😉

    These are great odd balls for this week. I really like your first shot. 🙂

    • Yeah, that first one is funny. A few days earlier, it didn’t have the shirt but Tour fever has hit and the stage that goes nearby is tomorrow. We’ll be there somewhere!

    Great pics! I like the silver on the bottom. Hope you are having a great time! 🙂

  4. I think I might be related to that first guy. Fantastic photos! Hope you are having a splendid time on your vacation.

    • Lisa, we’re having a great time and I’ve been taking lots of photos. Today we’re off to catch a stage of the Tour de France and praying that it doesn’t rain, as it has every day since we arrived.


  5. Yikes these are odd… hehehe
    The first one is exceptional. I like that one. I have a Dali Museum I visit from time to time in St. Petersburg, Florida. It has lots of unusual art. Nice entries for Cee’s challenge.
    I didn’t have burgundy … cabernet sauvignon worked real well.
