Have I mentioned my husband planned our trip and each day before we left the hotel, in addition to patching my heels with moleskin, I was asked, "Do you have the itinerary?" Today's itinerary would take us on the ten cent tour of Paris via bus 69. Bus 69 has no A/C and we still … Continue reading Day Three: Does This Bus Go to the Cemetery?
Day Two in Paris included excellent food, war, and hyenas.
I'm going to try to blog each day of the trip to Paris and Versailles for my own sake as much as hopefully someone's reading pleasure or at the very least, travel-tip assist. Let's see if I can remember each day over the next week or two it will take me to think back and … Continue reading ADVENTURES IN FRANCE AGAIN. FINALLY.
It's been awhile since I wrote anything here. It was easier to find things to post about while going through my cancer and radiation treatments. After that, nothing really seemed worth writing down.

There was one little troublesome spot on the edge of the tissue margin - like so close to the edge … Continue reading ONCE MORE WITH FEELING
