The Good Old Days

This photo of yours truly was taken in my friend Julia's garden 25 (or so) years ago by our friend, Allyson. I was living in Paris, working at the Chicago Pizza Pie Factory, and judging by the expression on my face, up to no good.  Julia and her charming French husband, Gilbert, used to have Sunday afternoon garden parties for us ex-pats.  Although I don't remember this detail, Allyson reports that Gilbert taught us how to open a champagne bottle with a sword.  I'm heading back to France next week to visit Julia, sit in her garden, plot my next outrage and drink champagne.  Now, where did I put my sword?
