The Queen is here

Yes, Queen Elizabeth is in Paris, and I nearly saw her…

Well, bb and I happened to be sauntering around the 6th arrondissement and chanced by Luxembourg Gardens and lo and behold, half the darn thing was roped off.

“Ahhh”, I said knowingly to bb, “the Queen…”

And, yep, as we were leaving we got caught in a crowd looking through an archway into the courtyard of Luxembourg Palace. We could see sharply dressed military men doing their fanciest steps, and photographers running around to get pictures.

I didn’t see her, not being much of one for gawking, but bb thinks he did, “If she was that little woman wearing pink…”

A nice Spring day here, a bit cold, but lots of sun between the showers.

I am sitting down to tea, a nice little tarte aux pommes we picked up and a favorite old book I’m halfway through.

Such a nice day.

I am a misanthrope. No one ever believes me, but this seems to prove my point.
