Tonight we're off to Paris for 5 days. So Sad! I'll tell all about how wonderful the food was, how beautiful April in Paris is and what Casey thinks of the Mona Lisa when we get back.
You would think KZ would be excited about the Eiffel Tower but no---he wants to see the Mona Lisa and go to the Picasso Musèe. He was totally fascinated by the multi-colored eyed lady and the weird cats in the Picasso museum in Barcelona and so Picasso is his "favorite artist." Although he also fancies himself as a Michaelangelo and Leonardo man. What can I say?
And then--there is the food court at Les Galleries Lafayette that we must investigate--according to friend, Ann.
So, we will eat and walk and look and have fun. Not a bad life!
God sometimes gives us unexpected gifts. Our gift has been a grandson who enlivens our lives and makes retirement very different than the one we anticipated. He is a special joy. And that's "Casey." In 2006 we fulfilled our dream of living in Italy for a year. It was every bit as wonderful as anticipated. This blog begins in 2005 as we prepared for that experience. Since then we have explored many places together. That's the "Travel." And finally, I am a person of opinions--spiritually, politically, on just about anything and that's the "Other Stuff." Welcome to my blog.
