Far from perfect, but enjoying life as a non-perfect and flawed individual at 60 years young. I'm still wondering what I'll be when I grow up!
The characters in my life's screenplay include my better half.
He is a refined Frenchman who grew up in Paris and summered in St. Tropez.
I grew up in Long Island and summered in Long Island.
I am not refined.
My three grown children are also a big part of my life.
For their sake, they happily live where their careers have taken them! But I can still mother them from a distance!
I write about the mundane. I write about deeply shallow issues. But whatever I write or muse about--it'll always be a bit on the humorous and positive side!
It's all good!
Have a good one.
Thanks Julie! XOXOXO!!!
Have a lovely time Catherine. I’m just back from Norway and you know what, I couldn’t manage to post either. Actually it was quite nice to have a break!!! And we won’t forget you 😊 xxxxxxx
Welcome back Penny. I MISSED YOU! I was thinking about you a lot during your trip and I cannot wait to read all about it! I’ll have to find Wi-Fi hotspots so I can read. But yeah–I think it is nice to take a break and vacation from everything!!! XOXOXOXO!!!
Have a wonderful time. I am hoping to take my first trip to France next spring and reading all your fabulous posts have me so excited and motivated to make this happen (just need to save my pennies).
Hi Nancy! Thank you! Oh..I’ll have more posts for you to read when I return! I’m actually thinking of one right now–it’s based on why I’m bringing my loafers to France……XOXOXOXO!!!
Have a great time, be safe, and I can’t wait to read all about it! And I’m sending some hugs as well, because I know it will be a little different and a little sad this time. Xoxo
Hi Lori! Thanks..it will be different–and I’m kind of feeling a bit weird that we won’t be in Paris but Bonaparte wants to plan a “Paris only” trip back in the fall!! XOXOXO!!!
Bon voyage! J’espère que vous avez une vacance formidable!
That’s the extent of my French at short notice I’m afraid (and I’m not 100% sure I’ve got the accents in the right place!) At any rate, have a grand time and relax – look forward to all the updates when yore back 🙂
Merci mon cherie Haylee. Oh, I plan on being the queen of relaxation! XOXOXOXO!!!
Haha, never mind writing in French, I should really check my English spelling! *you’re 🙄
How could we ever (forget about you) ???
Have a great time , soak up the sun – just not too much … and you’re tanned already 😉 as it is – enjoy the views ( including Delon on the wall 😉 ) , eat well (remember French food doesn’t go to your hips or behind 😉 ) and just relax 🙂
Turtle Hugs back atcha! I’m definitely looking forward to some well-needed Delon. …and sun! XOXOXOXO!!!!!
Hope you have a wonderful time. Have a safe journey. xx
Thank you Strawberry!! XOXOXOXO!!!

In the words of the Mickey Mouse Club:

I thought y because i love you was Donny and Marie Osmond… oh my days a blast from the past. Of course I was told by my eldest sister as I was far to young to remember. *gulp* 😍😜
Safe travels and have a wonderful time with your family. Look forward to hearing about all your adventures!
thanks Martha! I’ve already started writing- it’s raining and I’m hungry!!!💗💗💗❤️❤️❤️
You already know that I love your perspective on whatever happens! That’s what’s so much fun. Good, bad, ugly, you’ll write about it and I’ll love it! In the meantime, you’ll be resting/refreshing from Retail Hell. Yay for you. We’ll hear from you soon!!!! XOXO

Silly lady! Just enjoy the time away, we’ll be here! And don’t forget me when in duty free!
Now how on earth could we forget about Catherine the Great! (Oh wait! I think that name was already taken. Oh yeah. She was a Russian Empress. You related by any chance? 😉 ) (See! Cheryl DOES know some history! She didn’t dress as cool as you, though. 😀 )
I as a new virtual friend will use your away time to read everything on your blog. Don’t you just love the salon for connecting us all. X happy travels.😇
Good luck in France. (I won’t forget about you!) 🙂
