See you later



















Dear Marc, it's July and I'm closing up. I'm going to the Finnish archipelago to marinate in salt seas, feast on rye and cheese and pick wild strawberries in the forest. I'll try to make it to Ivana Helsinki's Helsinki store, too.

If you, or anyone else would like to know when anything new gets posted here on LTMJ, simply mail me at emi@lovegun.net to get a mail. Write "I want more" in the subject line.

Hasta la vista, baby.

ps. Standing in line before me today at the grocery store, was a small lady, perhaps 90 years old. She was a little crooked and kind of fragile, she looked somewhat like a small bird. She bought the usual - a roll of toilet paper, crackers, bananas, coffee, milk...and...a big slab of ostrich filet, which alone cost 14 dollars (even after the marked 30% discount).

It seemed almost kinky. Almost cannibalistic of her to buy another bird, in order to eat it. At the same time, I salute her. Who's to tell her now, at this age, what she should eat or not? Old people should only eat ostrich filet, and rinse it down with champagne. Old people rock. They lived the roaring 20's. When I'm 90, I'll treat you to some ostrich too. You'll be older, so try to stay healthy.

Have a great time at your Finish archipelego. Sounds like you know how to live well. Were you tempted to buy an ostrich filet, too? Thanks for the great visual. I can already imagine the little bird's dinner setting tonight, down to her little flowered napkins.

Nice to hear that you're coming to Finland! The Ivana Helsinki store is really nice. Have been reading your letters for a long time now but this is the first time I comment. Just wanted to say that I really love this blog and your style of writing. Hope you have a great vacation in Finland!

Denise you left out the Washington DC trip! I agree, you take so many vacations, and I could only dream of holidays every month. I am taking a trip to Florida/Georgia next month for 6 days, but really...so not fair. :)

Sadly, old people also lived through a world of war and later a world of depression...
