A Touch of Paris

I'm getting ready to leave for Paris tomorrow. At first I thought I'd show you pictures of my stack of clothes, my stash of over-the-counter medications (just in case) and my empty bag (I can never pack until the day before). Instead, I think you might be more interested in these things from my dad's time in Paris during World War II.

Daddy on the Streets of Paris During World War II

A Program from the Folies Bergere

A Postcard of the Eiffel Tower

Maybe it's signigicant that my 100th post is the last one before I take a little break for travel. In the meantime, to see what others have brought to Show and Tell today, go over to There's No Place Like Home where Kelli is hosting.

Hi Kathy! Now I remember! No wonder the name sounded so familiar. The hospital held their physician's Christmas party at the Pretiss Club last December. Have you been in it? It is such a beautiful place. I fell in love with all its furnishings. What a small world! If you ever come again, make sure you let me know. I would love to meet with you!...Christine
