But he's not wearing a cowboy hat! Still having trouble getting him to remove that raccoon hat (that's why he's always hanging out by the garbage can at night). I will be traveling solo. Tail end of trip will be staying with you and Rob. :smiley_simmons:

Great! Last note was that I was traveling solo. I don't think I would be good at that in another country. I get pretty lost in my own back yard as it is. And we must go to the Left Bank to hang out with the other writers! :thumbr:

"...a young man goes to Paris
as every young man should,
there's something in the air of France
that does a young man good,,,"

Jacques Brel (this is from memory, I think I've got the verse right:thumbr:)

Sounds good, but a further verse "an old man goes to Paris as every old man must, he finds the winds blow cold and his dreams have turned to dust..."

I've read that Brel's original verses were much darker than the English translations. But hey, a virtual trip to Paris - strolling the left bank, having wine at a little outdoor café...Hmmm.

"I'm coming, dear"

Virtual it will be, darling. I can taste the wine now! But why am I in the corner while you are talking to two men.???? Oh, that's right. They're your business partners. ;)

Ah mon cher, as we sit in this sidewalk café I remember when you were a shy young French girl in La Resistance and I was an American spy. We used to meet at a small bookshop on the Ru La Fayette; and the night you lured the German officer into out trap. You were magnifique! And the night we hid in a hayloft in a small farm on a chilly night outside Nice. The next day the troops landed at Normandy...

Well I knew French girls didn't shave, figured you were just extra hairy...Really, that was seriously funny. I actually got the idea from the photo, as it had the look of the 1950's. I thought about ending it with him saying "Too bad we discovered," I said, pulling the Baretta from my coat, "that you were a German spy (phitt-phitt)"

Was that you sitting on the right? :icon_cheesygrin:
