Time to dine with mon amis in Paris... oui oui oui... VIRTUALLY celebrating the NEW YEAR at Le Pré Catelan...

after a lovely stroll around the grounds...

then on to yummy foods... dessert and main courses...





lunch went on and on and it was dark by the time we all emerged...


Merci Beaucoup for a FABuLOUS day with the Invitation Only girlees!!!

Dearest Fifi:

It was my deepest hope to be curled up on one end of your couch as we laughed and sang in the New Year while sharing many sips of many fabulous things with all the people who want to see us fluttering about. My hopes were dashed when a certain situation (some say situations and you may read that however, I assure you the papers are incorrect and their sources are of the sorted and untrustworthy type) arose and I was detained and prevented from flying to be by your side. I suppose I was not actually detained as the inspectors were very kind and provided me with my every wish as they sorted things out. Other than the locked door and guard, I was free to move about as I pleased. That can hardly be called detention as the suite they had me stay in was quite lovely and the room service divine. There was an issue with a passport stamp and a recent visit to meet with a certain person who may or may not be of the highest standing. Judgment is such an interesting thing, isn't it Fifi? One person's criminal is another's charming host.

Please send me a picture of you on New Years Eve so that I can Photoshop myself right into your party and it will just like we were together! Isn't that just the most brilliant invention ever, Fifi? One can now Photoshop people right in and out of their lives! I wonder how many lovely pictures are hidden away or torn up because of the other person in the picture. I have fixed many perfect pictures of myself this way.

I will be landing at LAX the day after next and I will have my driver deliver me straight to your door. Oh, Fifi! We have so much to catch up on. Maybe you can organize a small intimate event so that all the people who have not seen me in ages will have the opportunity to do so. I know how much my state side friends have missed seeing me. A grand party is just the thing to fix that!

Sincerely,
Petunia who has missed her BFF terribly and knows the cure to all the unpleasantness in the tabloids will be cured with a sip or ten of something lovely the day after next.

FiFi, I love your imagination...and talking all the way through lunch until dusk is lovely. Ladies can certainly do this as you know. Thank you, once again, for being with our international group. Each and every one of you contribute in such a special and different way. Looking forward to our February post...which could be about Valentine's, right? Sending love, my precious friend....
