    Courtney would love that place. That’s why he thinks his dad is so uncool. Next time I’m bringing my bib overalls since it seems they are definitely in style. Love the picture of that cute little family at La Tour Eiffel. (Did I get the spelling correct)

    Your friends’ daughter looks like une vrai fille Parisienne with her darling red dress and stylish shoulder bag and ballet flats!

    And you and Bernie are definitely cool 🙂

      Isabella is precious. She is only 9 years old. We started yesterday about 9:30 and we left them at 9:30pm. They were still going strong and going over to where Michelle studied when she was here years ago. Isabella never whines or fidgets. She is fully engaged with Paris trivia questions and has a book on what she’s supposed to see and discover (like a scavenger hunt) to all the places we go. She doesn’t talk a lot but listens to EVERYTHING. And if there’s a crepe with Nutella, she’s on it!!

    Light fixtures and yellow chairs were the highlight photos for me. Although I did enjoy the upside down pants and shoes display.

    A store like Merci is usually a great place for a dude to do some serious girl watching while looking totally bored. Little girl Shore was in her French colors – did the picture of the flag before her and her dad’s picture just happen or did you and Bernie plan it?

    Loving ALL the picture you have sent! The flag in the breeze, Merci (wish I had been with you there!), Bernie’s relative (and there really is a resemblance) and people/faces. Thanks for always giving us a lift!

    Hello to Bill! We were in L-14 together; missed him when he left HSV. Love the yellow chairs! Plan to share this w/young friends living in Germany and traveling. Your blogs are a daily joy. Merci

      Hi Susan, I’ll tell Bill hello from you. He’s a wonderful father which warms my heart. How is your son? I’ve been holding him in my prayers!
