Feeling Miffy about the 4th


It’s that time of the year! Time to bust out the red, white and blue and celebrate the July 4th – the start of the Tour De France.

This year Le Tour starting in Utrecht where Miffy (seen above sporting a “king of the mountains” jersey) is a cultural icon.

The thought of seeing giant Miffys in various jerseys popping up here, there and everywhere is actually more of the reason I’m tuning in.

Sorry, TDF, but I just don’t find the group of riders or the route very interesting this year. Seriously, how many times can I watch 150 sweaty men in spandex climb L’Alpe d’Heuz?

But Miffy? Awww, I could look at her for hours. I can’t wait to see where she turns up!
