Geeze, I am really opening myself up here. But, my mind…free flowing at 4:45am this morning. Daylight savings time robbing me of deep sleep. My mind flitting about as I try to go back under before the dogs and cat commence begging.

My mind settles, for inexplicable reasons, on Coupe. A car. A coupe. Coupe? Is that French? Coupe de Ville? More French. DeSoto? That’s got to be Spanish. Chevrolet…hmm? French again? How did those names originate I wonder? The cat leaps upon my twitching toes…I am awake! I said it was free flowing.

Ok, Louis-Joseph Chevrolet was not particularly French, but Swiss is close enough.
