L comes to town…

LP  came a few days before Christmas. She and Renee have been girlfriends since 1975.

 We walked the streets and visited museums during the days.

We put Lauren’s (Renee’s daughter) flowers on our “Christmas Tree.”  table.jpg and entertained friends of friends that neither of us knew who turned out to be great company.

We took the Metro (subway) subway.jpg               to a 2 Star Michelin restaurant and spent a lot of money.  2-star.jpg

 

On Christmas Eve we walked to the Eiffel Tower

We went to dinner at Allard, one of our favorite restaurants in our neighborhood (the 6th). We started with Oysters and Champagne

and then on to their specialty, duck smothered in olives.

We drank a superb Red Burgundy, and finished with a Buche Noel.eugene.jpg

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
