    OK friends, time for your therapy today! Let’s start in my favorite place away from home … A thief in Paris planned to steal some paintings from the Louvre. After careful planning, he got past security, stole the paintings and made it safely to his van. However, he was captured only two blocks away when his van ran out of gas. When asked how he could mastermind such a crime and then make such an obvious error, he replied. “Monsieur, that is the reason I stole the paintings! I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh!” Now my readers, listen carefully … See if you have DeGaulle to send this joke to a friend. I used it today because I figured I had nothing Toulouse!
