Le manteau rouge


Le manteau rouge
(The red coat)


As I stood in the rain, 
there was something familiar about this young French girl 
with her long dark locks and bright red coat...

She looked like a miniature of one I know well...


Joyeux anniversaire, Holly!

  16. Brings back memories of my own red coat that I had when I was eleven, but I was never near as cool as this little girl.

  17. To all, Holly enjoyed her birthday wishes today. I should have posted a photo of her at this age. She did not have glasses but had a red coat (even then) and a head full of thick brown hair.

    I was totally taken with her little pink lunettes. There are more shops to buy glasses in Paris than in any other city I have ever seen. The Parisians love their stylish glasses.

    Bises,
    Genie
