Susan I know you are lying in the hospital with a spiking fever. I hear you may not be going home till Monday and have one last chemo treatment to endure. Here is a picture of Susan in her wig after her hair fell out. Tres chic, no?
Well if you have followed either of our blogs, hers is Susan's mini homes and is listed in my side bar, you know we spent Christmas in Paris this year. I have been telling her about the detective novels of Cara Black. Cara is a San Francisco native who spent time in Paris.
Her female detective, Aimee Leduc discovers a mystery from each arrondissment in Paris (well not all 20 yet). I am reading "Murder in the Bastille", and one police officer is housed in the Marie in Place Leon Blum, our metro stop.
There are many wonderful comments like how the crosswalk we used to go to the market once housed a guillotine and the cobblestones ran red with "aristo" blood.
And how the 11e is being corrupted by le caviar gauche who are turning workshops into lofts, like our hostess' place.
But what brings me to writing this post is one of the characters is a
craftsman who works with antiques. He just complained about the new breed of wood workers from the Charles Boulle ecole. The school our Boulle founded. Did you know Charles Boulle created the chest of drawers????? Too funny.
Charles Boulle mean nothing to you? Read Susan's and my last posts! (ok mine is about 6 ago).
These books come in audio version at my library if it is too hard to concentrate and read. They will just have to be our vacations for now until we return to Paris again. Funny how "Boulle" keeps turning up. Especially for you at les marches puces!Cheers! CM
