    Joyeuses fêtes et retour du soleil! Those are lovely. I like the fact that there are also small, elegant bûches for two or three people at that pâtisserie.

    I also loved the dog and horse, but I’ve been a critter-lover since my earliest memories. Respect to service, first responder and assistance animals, including the brave Diesel, who is buried in a longstanding animal cemetery in the Paris suburbs.

    Greetings to Monsieur Pseu et le Jeune Monsieur Pseu, and so happy that the latter has found a spot with young people with the same requirements and is able to flourish.
