Say WHAT?!! Okay, I heard that he passed away last night, but for some reason, I thought it was the drummer of Boney M, not the SINGER- maybe they don't have a drummer, but I didn't realize it was HIM... WHOA!

This is some sad news as Boney M was from MY DAY- the days when Disco was IN like SKIN! It's a very sad thing to lose such talent, and it seems like through the years, we lose the talented ones pretty young- Well, he was 61. To me, that is still pretty young! R.I.P. Bobby, you will be remembered in the hearts of all your millions of fans... RAH RAH RASPUTIN!

Rosa Bonheur in the Park Buttes Chaumont, Paris

I just LOVE this little cafe and was thinking about it yesterday. If you're in Paris in the springtime or summer time it's a lovely spot, afternoon or evening to have a drink or to nibble on something.

Here it is back in the day... Still looks the same!

My Mom's B-day...

If you have ever lost a loved one, due to any circumstance, you will know exactly what I mean by this... Celebrating that person's life on specific dates. Anniversarys ARE important! They also us to honor and commemorate this person's life.
So, in honor of my dear and beloved Mom, who most of you here know just from my blogging... I am going to celebrate her special day, her BIRTHday. It's a very special date because NOT only was it the GLORIOUS day on which she was born... but if there was NO her-- there would be no ME! So, I am of course, VERY grateful of my Mom's birth, naturally!
Though I don't really look a lot like my mom (I share some of her traits and mannerisms, of course)... I have a lot in common with her and I owe a lot of WHO I am as a person to her!

So, THANKS Mom... for being born and for birthing me (and my two brothers, too.. of course).
I wouldn't be here without you and you have contributed so much to my life, as well as all of those whose lives you entered... We will ALWAYS remember you and love you 'til eternity!

I love you very much, my dear Mom and think of you very often, especially on this special day of your birth--- way back in 1941.
Your one and only daughter..... Leesa
