Monsieur Olivet is most humbled by the kindness of his friends
for he has just opened his surprise gift only to find....

...an airline ticket!

(destination? Where do you think Monsiuer is off to?)

  7. What excitement!! They are all bursting at the seams! The most magnificent place I have ever seen is the island of Corfu, so he might be going there! (However the view from my friend's porch last night was a close second.) Bon Voyage Monsieur!! (Is everyone going?)

    P.S. Love that orange-- and the flowers are blooming! And thanks for the Sunshine!

  8. : ) Monsieur is so happy that you've visited - thank you everyone! Nicola, yes, High Tea with the Queen would be brilliant! Nicky, Helen, Sab, Monica, we shall see where he heads to...and Mita, OH my, a fight? I'm glad you have made up, yes, he has missed you I know! : )
    And Krista, wow, Corfu...I must research that! If Monsieur doesn't end up there, I will try myself to get there! And no, unfortunately this trip is for Monsieur alone this time.

    Thanks for your kind words - Monsieur has missed all of you.

  10. Hi Shirley, welcome back! I have missed you so. Monsieur Olivet must surely be wanting to go to Ireland, after high tea with the Queen of course. I want to go with him! Are you sure he has to travel alone?

  12. Ooooooooh uh uh oooh I know! I know! It's not the zoo for sure!

    ...and the airline better not put him in the cargo hold. He must have a passenger seat!

    I love this. Look at their expressions. You are so happy Shirley, it shows.

  13. Oh my that lucky Monsieur! He must miss Grande Paris, maybe he and Liz are meeting for high tea and then attending a beautiful opera, no?!

    Best of continued luck with all your projects and so glad you can visit & post once in awhile! xoxoxo

  18. Oh, yes!! Monsieur Olivet is BACK!!! And what a lovely gift he's got too! Wouldn't it be wonderful if he could walk the glorious plains of Scotland and meet Nessy of the Lochness for a cup of tea and sweet delicious shortbeard? I've been there a couple of times as a child, and I tell ya, the place is stuck in my mind like glue! Those glorious mountains and spreads of calm water... so mystifying, Shirley! (^_^) oxoxox

  20. Well, that's easy! He's coming to America, of course. He's heard all about this fabulous gingerbread from some Trader named Joe. Better lock up your cupboards, Shirley.

    Cute, cute, CUTE! Look how happy his friends are! Ohhh, their happiness is infectious. :D

I have been under the weather for the last couple of days. Coughing now, but I'm about to go to bed and get some rest. I'm almost done with my book. It a whole long story that I will save for when I call you. It's a lot. Thanks for checking in on me. I so love and appreciate you for that. I'm still on the planet working hard. I on to the next book in a couple of days.
