That Voo Doo that you do so well...


So my younger daughter was attending a family dinner at a friend from Cal's house this weekend. The friend came here from the Middle East when she was 13 years old.

My daughter was asked, "What does your mother do?" She replied, "She collects doll houses'"

"What is that?" they asked politely, "we do not know 'dollhouses'."

"Oh", she said,"they are small versions of houses and she has a little doll that looks like her she takes pictures of".

"Oh," they asked after a pause,"Like Voo doo?"

In the Conservatory of Flowers, Colette is not sure what she thinks of this Carnivorous plant. The pockets are taller than she is!






Colette enjoyed a cable car ride.




She liked the exhibit!





She thought the Castro Movie theater was clever, showing MILK, of course.
She really liked Pac Bell Park where the Giants baseball team plays.






Then it was time to go.







It was "just another day in Paradise" as the song goes, and she was thankful.

Like Voo Doo. That's so funny. I never thought of doll houses that way. A different perspective is always good. Who is the big Colette? Very well done. Loved it!

Well, let's just say Big Colette says it all... me. CM

Brilliant! So Colette is your alter ego, your mini you - and you can fit in with the model houses as Colette, and with the life-size plants as CM! (Well, maybe Colette is CM too - what is her last name?)
Love these scenes, and glad to know that we're seeing you (or your back view) too!
