PAMELA’S BIRTHDAY!

June 19th is my friend Pamela Keilson’s birthday.  To celebrate, Pamela, Margaret Keith, and I got luncheon reservations at La Chevre d’Or in Eze. The three of us took the 82 bus from Nice to Eze, excited about spending the day celebrating Pamela life at one of the most gorgeous spots on earth. Needless toContinue reading “PAMELA’S BIRTHDAY!”

A TIME TO REMEMBER

I was born in 1937. This is true. I remember as if it were yesterday. A Gentle Reminder “Born in the 1930s and early 40s, we exist as a very special age group. We are the smallest group of children born since the early 1900s. We are the last generation, climbing out of the depression, whoContinue reading “A TIME TO REMEMBER”

A DAY BY THE SEA IN ANTIBES

On Saturday, June 16, 2018, two of my U.S. expat friends, Pamela Keilson (from San Francisco) and Margaret Keith (from Selma, Alabama), drove with me to a fun event by the Sea in Antibes, hosted by The American Club of the Riviera (ACR). Antibes is the home to Port Vauban, the largest yachting harbor inContinue reading “A DAY BY THE SEA IN ANTIBES”

A MEMORY IN MARSEILLE – JUNE 9, 2016

  On June 8, 2016, Steve and I drove to Marseille to spend the night so that we would be in town early the next morning to meet his Auntie Gloria and cousin, Erica.

RAMBLING….

Oftentimes, I don’t know what to write when it comes time for my weekly Jayspeak post. Today is one of those days.  It has been a difficult two years for me since Steve died.  I have succeeded in putting on a brave face and taken steps to rebuild a life in a country that isContinue reading “RAMBLING….”

JUST WONDERING……..

Often, from time to time, I read something that I save for no good reason.  Somehow, it speaks to me.  Not too long ago, I read this – probably on Facebook, and it spoke to me.  Today, I want to share it with you. I want to thank the author – Author Unknown – forContinue reading “JUST WONDERING……..”

AUGUST 2017

Nothing is quite like the month of August.  Someone should write a song – like Gilbert and Sullivan. Something like “It’s May. It’s May. The Lusty Month of May!”  ALL of France goes on “holiday”. The rest of the world comes to town – to eat, to swim, to sunbathe, to dance, to sight-see.  TouristContinue reading “AUGUST 2017”

THE BEACH AND ME

This week, I went to the beach in Nice. That is a big deal. It only took me TWO YEARS!! Well, that is not true.  Steve and I walked along the Promenade almost every Sunday and sometimes more.  I walk to the Sea on my Sea-trek’s.  I went swimming in the Sea while Steve andContinue reading “THE BEACH AND ME”

JAMIE’S IN TOWN!

Guess what? Jamie’s in town. My granddaughter Jamie and her special guy Aymeric are in Antibes! OK, that is a different town, but it is in the neighborhood. A bit of foundation: Jamie is my son Craig’s 24-year-old daughter. After she graduated from San Francisco State… …, she decided to spend a year in Paris beforeContinue reading “JAMIE’S IN TOWN!”

“CAPTURING BEAUTY”

Lo and behold, beautiful roses were everywhere! Here are a few of my favorites. Stay tuned.   FOR SALE ONContinue reading ““CAPTURING BEAUTY””
