June 7, 2018 – “Looking Back” Posted by Debbie Ambrous – May 4, 2019 These are old photos from 2005 when we visited houses with a realtor. We were primarily interested in a village house across from an auberge and a boulangerie. This is the charming stone house below which has hardly changed since 2005. A narrow wooden stairway led to two bedrooms upstairs.
The realtor showed us another house in the country which didn’t touch my heart, but I was amused to see old photos of Jim climbing into the attic. At least he made it safely down, so he could return home in good condition.
May 24, 2018 – “Kodak Moment” Posted by Debbie Ambrous – September 2, 2018 My morning started with a Kodak Moment, and it continued with more beautiful moments including a happy memory of my mama and her thriftiness. These are some of the left-over photos that did not fit into the story. I hope you visit the main page for the blog story. Photos below were shot in 2005 and scanned:
May 23, 2018 – “Ducks NOT in a Row” Posted by Debbie Ambrous – August 19, 2018 I rarely have my ducks in a row even with the best of intentions. I’m hoping this page will be an exception, and the photos will fall into place without any quack-ups!The photos below were shot in 2005 on film and scanned.
May 22, 2018 – “The Big Reveal” Posted by Debbie Ambrous – July 29, 2018 Very often I have “left-over” photos that I cannot possibly fit into the blog story. Of course, you know that “left-overs” are often the best! I apologize that I haven’t updated this page in ages. Initially, I intended to share photography from France here when the blog story featured photos from other areas.
To shake things up a little bit, these are left-over photos from the blog story on the main page “The Big Reveal” – warmed over just for you. Hope you enjoy!The photos shown below were shot over fifteen years ago in the autumn at Chateauneuf, a beautiful time to visit! Notice the comparison to photos of the auberge and the gite to the photos in the blog story in the spring.
Opp Fest in France? – Posted by Debbie Ambrous – November 1, 2014
I’m not saying there is an actual Opp Fest in France with boiled peanuts, pork skins, country music, Alabama crafts, antique cars and “Ya’ll It’s Fall” signs here and there. But when Jim and I are in France, it’s always an Opp Fest when we make an appearance.
Which poster would you select?
Jim’s Photography Part II – Posted by Debbie Ambrous – February 2, 2014
Do you like Jim’s photography of France? He will be signing autographs in our driveway just any day now. I won’t get any work from him with all of the autograph seekers coming ’round. I thought these pics were rather grand except for the last one with that lady in the hat rambling on the street. Thank ya’ll and come back again.
Jim says I am Jealous of his fabulous photography. I will show him! More of his work will be showcased in the future.
He loves me, He Loves Me Not, HE LOVES ME! – Posted by Debbie Ambrous -Jan. 11, 2014
Do you think that a proposal in France is more romantic than one in Alabama, Missouri, Florida or Panama? Would a “will you marry me?” cause your heart to beat faster in France compared to any other place in the world? Jim first asked me to marry him in the family room of my parents’ house. He asked again with a ring for my hand in Selma, Alabama, in my parents’ car. When I think of those moments and where I experienced them, I only remember the happiness not the location. I was out of this world, top of the world singing inside “HE LOVES ME!” Where was your proposal? Let’s change the question to the men, “Where did you propose?”
