    Love the header/metro shot and yellow and orange roses! A summery lunch on that terrace (wondering if that’s the same as La Paillote?) has been on our list for a while and your post inspires me to get there 🙂

    Bon weekend à Paris in the sunshine!

    I remember that WONDERFUL department store!! I agree with you, Linda, the bathrooms were lovely and very clean. Glad you guys are having good weather. It is very nice here – almost “fallish” – keep that “global warming coming,” eh?
    🙂 Take care and enjoy all. My love to Chris & family.

    I expect to see a photo of you in those black, super 👠 heels, Linda!

    Linda, I love all the photos. I have letters from a cousin who was in Paris after WWII. She could not find clothes to buy. What would she say about today! Also, you and Bernie must introduce “dinner in white” to Huntsville. Something for downtown to bring people to the Park.

    We love the home/gourmet store and always end up spending hours and more than a few dollars there! The spice store is especially wonderful. It’s a great place to pick up souvenirs to bring home.

    Have you and Bernie ever explored the basement of BHV? It’s the hardware floor and it’s amazing. A hammer for 65 Euros? And so beautiful I was tempted to buy it? How about a selection of cow bells? If you haven’t been there, you could take pix for us guys. (The ladies got all those show pictures, after all.)

      Yes, Jim, we love it and have already been there this year to buy leather cleaner for our white chairs. We’ll reward the men with something…good idea!
