Where did all the French people go?

I have been lying on the couch watching The Golden Globes, while it seems like I was walking around Paris just a minute ago.

Actually I'm a little under the weather, so on the couch for most of the day is as good a place to be as any. I have also been reading "The Paris Wife," about Hemingway and his first wife, Hadley. When Katie and I were in Paris we stood in front of the apartment building where they lived, and it's so interesting to actually have been right there at a place that I'm reading about.

Katie went back to Brandeis today. I was going to go with her and do the traditional making of the bed, but Joe went instead. I was sorry to miss the trip, but when I have a doctor's appointment in early February I can go check out her new dorm and re-make the bed. (Only kidding about the bed.)

Our two weeks together in Spain and France were the best. What a wonderful opportunity to take a trip like that. I miss her already! But as she pointed out, she's in the same time zone now, and it will  be easy to pick up the phone and call instead of planning to Skype.

Here is a photo that was stuck in my camera when the battery died.

Vive la France!

What a wonderful trip! so glad that you had a fabulous time, and that you shared it with us...

next time, and there will be a next time, you and Katie might want to enjoy the company of my relatives -- a homemade meal or are parisian but Norman -- so the best combination...
