A Goodies Weekend: From My Beloved Aunt Judy

Inside the package from My Beloved Aunt Judy which awaited me when I got home from work Friday: this incredible carved frog. I collect frogs, but only those that look real, absolutely NO cutesie, cartoonesque frogs at all. Aunt Judy has sent me some of the best in my collection, and this one, I think, is the best of all. The color! I've learned that when it comes to me, My Beloved Aunt Judy is somehow psychic. I've been yearning for all things French, a return to Paris, my French magazines and music. And what does she do? She sends me a birthday card IN FRENCH, with French labels enclosed!
