Vive La France

I am sure I have already mentioned our wonderful Museum of Fine Arts but bear with me while I again commend said institution.  The MFA hosted the French Film Festival this last two weeks and what a production.  The selection of films was terrific.  My favourite was The Dandelions, a sweet poignant movie centered around a shy little nine year old girl.  And did I say how comfortable the seats are!  After the movie we couldn't leave without popping into the exhibition called Hippie Chic.  Nothing unusual, perhaps because it is of my generation that it seemed so ordinary.

July 4th

That all American holiday.  We do so enjoy it.  This year we spent the evening at our friends condo on the Esplanade.  We ate dinner on their roof deck as we watched the fireworks on the water.  What a great place to view the action from.  We avoided all the security precautions put in place by the city.
