    She sounds perfectly delightful. Where was SHE going – and did you take a photograph of her? Anyhow, glad you arrived safe and sound.

    I didn’t take a photo, sadly! But I have her address. She was going home to Abbeville, after visiting one of her daughters up North. She was getting off at the next station after mine, although it was something that started with J, not Abbeville itself. I’m blaming the faulty memory on lack of sleep.

    what a lovely story! 🙂

    I’ll bet she has made a new best friend, too. I hope she hasn’t supplanted any of your other 80 year-old ‘friends’.

    She must have been a really special 83 year old if you gave her a chocolate bar. This post made me feel all warm and fuzzy. I’d feel warmer and fuzzier if someone gave me a bar of chocolate, however.

    She may be my favourite 83-year-old, but she has nothing on the 80 and 89-and-over-year-olds I know 🙂

    And how I wish I had someone to share it all with! If only you were here, you’d be getting so much right now. As it is, I’m forced to eat at least two different types each day. I was out of control in New York. I believe $70 is a far underestimated amount spent on the chocolate, but I refuse to actually go through my receipts and count it all up.
