Allons, enfants!

Happy Bastille Day to all français and 
fellow francophiles!  Here's my
Parisian offering for this special day!


  1. Thank you so much !!
    It is so nice of you !
    Yesderday night, when driving back from some friends, we happened to see, from the motorway, at least 20 fireworks, all villages and towns were celebrating the 14 juillet, it was quite nice and a little moving to imagine all those people having a good time, and lots of fun, along with the "bal des pompiers" !
    And there will be more fireworks tonight !!

  2. Ooh, pretty! I didn't like the pyramid when I first saw it but it's since grown on me a lot. {Same could be said by many Parisians of the Eiffel Tower back in the day. ;) }

    Happy Bastille Day back at you, Alexa, Marylène and all. Enjoy!

  3. Marylene -- pas de quoi! Wish I could be there for the fireworks—and especially for the bals des pompiers. I love that tradition!

    Shell -- no wonder the pyramid has grown on you, since it does come to a PT. (And most New Yorkers hated the Trade Towers, btw.)

  4. Oh, doh - I was so excited by 14 Juillet that I forgot the obvious.

    Pointy-topped doo-dad!!! Merci beaucoup, Alexa!

  5. The pyramid has never looked better! Happy le 14 juillet to you all.


Thanks, merci, grazie, danke, hvala, gracias, spasibo, shukran, dhanyavaad, salamat, arigato, and muito obrigado for your much-appreciated comments.
