two gratuitous pictures from paris. if anyone can tell me what they think the red box is i will put you on my cookie list. i originally thought it was some sort of old cigarette machine but my mother-in-law says that typically, back in the day, cigs were sold at tobacco shops or cafes so now i don't know what the heck it is. hmmm. guess i will have to fly to paris today and take a better look.
