You disappeared, Tor. No posts, no visiting...I'm glad to know you are okay, and that you gave yourself a WONDERFUL trip to Paris...! It must have been so good to be back in places you knew so well...! HAPPY RETIREMENT, my dear.

I knew you were retiring so I figured that you would be taking a trip somewhere, and I was right. Good for you.

Have a terrific day. Big hugs to you both. :)

I learned something new, you lived in Paris before I was born.. Wow! I love the views from high above and of the Eiffel. And that is the most wonderful Retirement present! My wish right now is to take Cammie with me when I retire..

:) Love the post, keep it coming!

Ahhh Paris in the spring, how lovely! And while you were in Paris, I was on a short vacation in England.
Aren't we lucky that we can travel and see the world?
