Yesterday she and I were having trouble communicating. We switched to Spanish. Hey, presto! And then we baked Chocolate Meringue Cookies. Outstanding. I'd give you the recipe but it's in French.
Up until way-late late night, trying to navigate the Statute of Liberty web site. Whomever designed it must have been paid by the word, and the number of pages they makes you go through to order tickets. And then we find that any tickets to get into the monument have been sold out for two months. (But if a politician showed up and wanted access, welll.....) So we are bringing them TO but not INTO the statue. I don't think they'll care. (And if they do, tough!) Then its a casual drive through downtown Manhattan so that she can say she's been there -- oh, Friday afternoon outbound traffic, yum -- and out to eastern Connectidotts. Where I crash into the nearest bed.
On the bright side, her family has invited us to visit them in France. Way cool.
