I see us there, Deb, Teresa, and Jenn,
four sisters strolling through the Bois de Boulogne.
Family and pets, dear as they are, left behind
for a Girls Only trip to Paris.
My sisters, my history, my best friends,
won't you come along?
There they are, my 3 little sisters,
in a rare time together recently.
I'd prefer not to have been captured by the camera,
but yes, I was there too.
I love my little sisters,
but pardon me for sometimes wishing
that they weren't quite so little!

There, that's better!
Shall we go to Paris?
Stop in New York for a few days?
Stay at the Waldorf Astoria?
Shop at Bergdorf Goodman?
We'll need clothes for aboard ship…
Naturally we'll want to shop when we arrive in Paris,
but we'll need some frocks for dances mid-Atlantic,
and I hear that Pink is popular in Paris...
Shall I book us staterooms on the Ile de France?
Care to join us, ladies?
How many staterooms will we need?
Here's to wishing us all Bon Voyage!
[New posts coming Friday, God willing and the creek don't rise,
as we say here in Tennessee!]
