I got a few comments about the Eiffel Tower ornament on our holiday tree, so I thought I'd rerun a photo of it from ten (!) years ago. I found the ornament in the museum shop at San Francisco's Palace of the Legion of Honor back in 1998. I think I was there to see Picasso's "Guernica," if memory serves. It's a fragile glass ornament, so I try to be very careful with it.

We had a cut tree in 2006.

Today Callie goes back to the vet for a booster shot. She got a new version of her annual vaccine last month, and the vet said it would require a one-time booster after thirty days. In subsequent years, the booster won't be necessary.


  1. Beautiful! And I love the fact that you live in France and bought the Eiffel Tower ornament in San Francisco while seeing Picasso! I hope you were wearing your leiderhosen.

  2. That's even nicer up close.
    Ken said that Callie gets no rabies shot because no rabies in France. ?? I didn't know that. Good news.

  3. gosia, :)

    mitch, they were at the cleaners...

    emm, that's what they say, so shots are optional.

    1. emm, but required, obviously, for travel outside the country, especially the UK.


Tell me what you think!
