Bon Anniversaire! Notre Dame's 850th Birthday

As we all should know, a true lady never shares her age.

And a true gentleman dares only to ask.

But let's put it this way, when you make it to the ripe old age of 850 years (or 5,950 dog years....) you are most certainly allowed to brag!


The first time I visited Notre Dame she was cloaked in scaffold and tarps, being treated to a very in-depth facelift.  Hey, when you reach her age you're allowed a little maintenance. And three years ago, I visited her again.  This time, over the Christmas holiday, she was standing tall and proud, no heels needed.

I can't wait to visit her again.

So join me in raising a glass to the one and only..... Salut!
