"Well?", said my daughter-in-law to my son while we walked back to the garage under the Casino through Avenue des Beaux Arts in Monte Carlo. It was time to drive home again after the one-day- holiday we spent together in the Principality. "Not even a small souvenir like this to remember a lovely day?", she asked. She took his arm and put her head on his shoulder in front of the window. "Not that I particularly like these...", she sighed, "but they are surely a girl's best friend...!" "I am your best friend", whispered my son while dragging her away from the window. "You do not need any other!"

Your blog is the first one I'm viewing since I've registered. :). We in Russia sometimes say "hope, you have a lucky leg" and I'll succeed in blogger :)
Congratulations on being a 'Blog of Note' on Blogger! Of course, you've been a blog of note in my book for a long time. I've enjoyed your posts and pictures from Monte Carlo!
I can't believe how much time I just spent viewing your blog. I was so captivated and drawn in by the beautiful pictures, I found I had to go through them all, all the way back to your first post. You are certainly gifted with the camera!
Nice blog! Keep it up! http://pixofamerica.blogspot.com

Have a great time in Greece!
I could spend my whole life in the Azores watching ships and yachts! I loved them since I was 1 probably:D! Lucky you to be there:)
Your son is a quick one. I'm afraid I would have tried to rationalize my need for several best friends had it been my husband who was so clever. Very cute.
that is a truly lovel anecdote.
Fantastic !! This is so lovely..Great..Unseen Rajasthan
He sounds like a very smart young man.
You are missed when you travel, but you always return with photographic gems. Looking forward to it! Have a wonderful time.
very lovely photo.. thanks for sharing!
Your son is absolutely right! You may be interested to know, Diederick, that two days ago the police surrounded a car in Casino Square and arrested three men - they've been searching for the Pink Panthers for a while - jewellry thieves, of course. A day or so before that they caught someone trying to break into another jewellers via the roof - different thieves - and this was opposite the police station. Audacious!
Enjoy Greece - looking forward to the photographs.
Thank you too, Basma Awad!!
Thanks Johnny, although I was in Monaco, not the Azores, which I hope to visit one day.

Something for a film, Jilly!! My son would have loved to be there to film all this!! We'll be in touch again after I come back from Greece. Ciao!
Fantastic news to hear you are named Blogger of Note. Many congratulations, Diederick.
Well if my wife saw that, she'd definitely wait thre and tell me... "honey, that's what I'd like for my birthday or anniversary or may be on valentines day :-)"
How true! I think when I said something similar to my husband while in Monte Carlo I just got a large laugh!
A nice posting. I like your blog. Thank's.

Hi, I have a new blog called Bring My Name is Earl back. In case you may have never heard of the show, It's about a man name earl who gets hit by a car,gets divorced by his wife, and ends up in a hospital. He then decides to change his life by doing more good things and starts to belive in Karma. It's a very funny show that got cancelled and it would be awesome if you could please follow at: http://earlshallreturn.blogspot.com/
With enough followers and comments we might be able to bring back Earl!
That was a sweet yet funny little story about your Son and his wife. Thank you for sharing it! Kudos to your son!
The story is so well told, well done! And congratulations to your son for not letting his girfriend corner him into feeling guilty!
I'm sorry I failed visiting your blog for a while, I'm just catching up with your visit to Menton and meeting Jilly. Isn't she the most delightful person? I love her. I hope you manage to visit Avignon next time!
COngratulations for being Blog of Note last week. The same happened to my blog a few days later. A nice reward for our hard work, eh?
Enjoy your time off, I hope we get a new post from you soon. It looks like Arona Every Day is not quite daily these days... :-)
Beautiful pictures. What a beautiful thing it must have been to see.
