Mardi (Tuesday)

First of all, this is my 100th post!  Woo- hoo!  Who knew I had so many in me?  Who knew you would still be reading???  Cheers to all of us!

Paris is three for three on gorgeous.  Today I celebrated with a picnic in the Luxembourg Gardens, a short bus ride across the river from me.  Green chairs and benches with sun on them were popular items.

Afterwards I wandered down some little streets in St. Germain.

If you enlarge this you might be able to tell that the store front is in mosaic.

I'll take one of everything, please. Including the fur coat. Thanks.

When I got home Wonderchien gave me the long face, as if he knew I had been to a park without him.  Nothing to do but put my coat back on and take him to Parc Monceau.  While there we saw a group of school children dressed up for Mardi Gras, all lined up for photos.  I hurried over and took a few.

After I took my pictures, a little girl yelled, “Madame, c’est sept euros!” (“Madame, that’s seven euros!” )  French kids are well-behaved AND enterprising!

The afternoon shadows were growing longer as we headed for home.

I hope you had a good Mardi, too.
