Gone to heaven

Walking from the Marais toward the Ile St-Louis in Paris yesterday, along the rue du Pont Louis-Philippe, I noticed this shop.

"Look," I said to my friend Cheryl, "we've died and gone to Heaven."

"Well Heaven looks a lot like Paris," she replied.

Walt says it might be as close to heaven as any of us will ever get.

  1. Don't tell me that you could still drool over pastry after the lunch we had!!!!

  2. "Heaven" on a street named " Allee des Justes".
    Sounds right :-)

  3. aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh.... heaven it is :)

    I'm still reading your blog, and Walt's, every single day:)) While you were away in the Ile d'Oléron, I amused myself with browsing through your archives. Such fun! Your kitchen looks fabulous. Your yard looks delightful! Your dog is so cute. Your adventures are such fun to follow :) And, I'm now on summer vacation (shorter than retirement and not as much fun as retirement to Saint-Aignan), so this will be a lovely way to start my days.

    By the way, after your post some time ago about the wild-growing orchids, I was walking in the English Garden at our FABULOUS Missouri Botanical Garden here in St. Louis, and I saw what they called a wild orchid :)


  4. Claude, I took that picture BEFORE lunch!

    Judy, hi. I think I walked through the botanical gardens in St. Louis one time, about 35 years ago. It was great.

    The beaver, yes, just perfect.


What's on your mind? Qu'avez-vous à me dire ?
