Good News & Next Week's Program


























Late Friday night, I received the following text message: "Seche tes larmes: Teddy a un petit frere!"

"Dry your tears: Teddy has a little brother!" 

You can imagine my delight. The message included a photo of his petit frere looking perky and ready for adoption. The message came from the friend who gave me the late Ted who met his maker on Thursday. My-Reason-For-Living-In-France, the individual responsible for Ted's demise, is now in a quandary about whether his remains should be recycled into the paper/plastic/carton bin or the regular garbage. (We know he doesn't belong in with the wine bottles.)

We've opted for paper/plastic, if that doesn't work, we'll bury him.

If perchance you don't know what I'm talking about, slide on down to the post beneath for the obit.

Enough about Ted, we must move on. . .

On the calendar for next week:

Lots of surprises, news and views.

My pharmacy story.

On-the-street (I promise. I just couldn't drag myself out from under my quilt this week.)

Cherie may be returning from her extended -- forced -- vacation. Her huge fan base is clamoring for her pithy, snarky, insightful commentary on the fun-filled world of fashion and observations from the fast lane.  (At least three of you have inquired about her whereabouts and begged for her reinstatement.) 

If you have any questions for her, now is the time to pose them.

Footnote: You are all so adorable. Thank you for your kind words about Ted and moi meme.

Tish, your sentimental musing as to whither go the earthly remains of Ted made me LOL. Seriously.

So glad to hear that Cherie's on her way back. I've missed her so.

xoxoxo!

Such a dilemma, what to do with "that which was Teddy!" But seriously, you sound a bit more chipper. Looking forward to reading next week's posts!

Tish,
What a wonderful surprise, Ted has
a litle brother.
Please don't tell Cherie that we've been missing her. There'll be no end to her attitude. Shhhhh

I should think a burial with full honors is called for here.

So happy for the arrival of le petit frère. Looking forward to your stories, as always.

I think a a little shoe box burial (stylish shoes no less) and a send off with a clink of Pastis would be appropriate.

Poor Teddy. I would be so sad. By the way...I just know you are sick from that awful detox experience you shared with us. I got sick after a regular massage and you had all that...gook...to deal with..ewwwww. I have a little teddy/kitten never knew what it really was but still have him..name is Buttons. My dad washed him oh so many years ago in the washer and though I still do have him..he is kinda schmushed..but has been my faithful companion for 50 uh years or so!!!!

Dear Tish, how lovely you will have a new Ted! The not putting him out with the wine bottles made me laugh. What do you do with a microwaved singed Teddy? Have a wonderful week xx

Amazing how attached we can become to inanimate objects! But so glad to hear you will soon have a new Ted. As we are experiencing close to zero temperatures today, I'm wishing I had a Ted of my very own!!
