Pictures as demanded

First, I was gone for Valentine's Day so I missed my usual opportunity to mock.
To make up for it here is a bouquet for you all.
See how much I love you? I give you the very best.


Here is a picture Thing One used for his poster in World History in their treatment of Fascism.


Here is Notre Dame. I got to see Notre Dame, isn't that AWESOME?!?!

This next one is Sacre Coeur. Walking up all the steps to this church make me think I was probably going to see Jesus quite soon. Holy cow, it's a long way up.


This is the inside of the Orsay Museum which was once a train station. It is gorgeous on its own and THEN, when you count all the Monet, Manet, Van Gogh, Morisot, Renoir, etc. etc. it is one of the most beautiful places in Paris!
Mr. Logo was spoken to quite sharply for taking that photo. I hope you enjoyed it.
Here he is at the Moulin Rouge. Last time he was in the area he went in for a show.
Next, you have the Champs Elysees as seen from the top of the Arc de Triomphe.
As you can see, we brought our NW weather with us.
The stairs in the Arc de Triomphe.
For reasons that defy understanding Mr.Logo decided he need a photo of my ass as I went up to look at the winged victory.
Who knows...
Rue Cler is the home of a really yummy pastry shop where I got a Napoleon.
This is some sidewalk art we found.
The English language book shop on the Left Bank.
You knew I had to go there!

Thank you for the flowers and the photographs, however, you may keep the fascism. I am not in the market for any blunt force trauma just now.

LOL, Doug.

I was going to say: oooo, ahhh, what a lovely trip you had! Art museums are devine, and Orsay looks particularly, extraspecially devine...was the bookshop reasonable?
The sidewalk art is making me tell you to see Exit Through the Giftshop, if you haven't already:)

Thank you for the bacon bouquet, how thoughtful!
Thank you for posting pics, I have not seen Paris since 1979, you were not even born when I went to Paris!
