This trip came up on rather short notice!

Have flights...not easy to get what you want. I hate all airlines!

Have cat reservations and car sitter (hybrids need to be driven or batteries go dead).

Don't know who might be in Paris during this time..never a bad time to be in Paris!

Will go and put my packing together..packing very light!

a bientot...

Joan

We'll miss you again! Pack warm clothes---it's snowing there tonight. Just had an email from a friend with a picture of snowy rooftops.

I knew I would miss Jim and Pat..not warm enough for you!! I did look at the weather today and it is chilly! I looked at some extended weather and about the 1st it gets much warmer. It will be fine.

Cathinjoetown..maybe not the best time to go to Toulouse??

Lisa - nice to hear you will be there when I am there. Going to try for Reed again? I just emailed Catgherine to tell her when I arrive. It will be a Monday and she is not open on Monday so thought myabe she would like to join me for the late lunch hours beginning at 2:30 at Cafe Constant. I arrive at 11:15 so that should work out well.

a bientot..Joan

Joan, what can you tell me about reservations at Reed? I just read several glowing reviews and would like to dine there when I'm in Paris in July. I'm wondering if I need to make a reservation far in advance or if I can reserve when I am there (we have two weeks).

I'm looking forward to reading your next trip report!

Will miss you once again, as we are going very end of March or early April, for a month, and not spending time in Paris except at the very end of the trip. Sorry...

Yestravel: Would be nice..lunch, or something?

Mellen: well, we do have Groundhog Day celebration in 2014..counting on you to be there!

Debra, here is Catherine's e-mail address: [email protected] She has been receiving a lot of nice reviews, and in July might be busy, so think it might be a good idea to send her an earlier e-mail..just to be sure.

Denise...yes a slave to new job!!

I am packed now. Only 1 small bag to check and my roller laptop that has room for toilet articles and other. I had put clothes out on bed and when it was full, just quit packing! Trip insurance, pick up euros, call cc companies and get cat prescription..made inter-shuttle reservation, and that is it!!

a bientot....

Joan,

It will still be cold in Toulouse, temps this coming week are highs of 6 to 8, lows of 1 C. I wouldn't rush down if you'll be back in warmer weather, as I'm sure you will!

Wish I could get up there but we're in the process of buying some land adjacent to ours so conserving our cents or centîmes!

Have a wonderful stay!

Too bad you can't make a short trip to Paris. I see A/F has some that they call mini fares within France..you might check..

Joan,

We are absolutely going to try Reed again. I will e-mail Catherine when the time gets closer. We are staying in the 15th and will eat at a neighborhood place, Pizza Flora, that night. I will try for Wednesday or Thursday maybe. We cannot wait. We had to cancel our trip last March so this is extra special for us. Have fun and I can't wait to read your reports. They keep me in Paris when I'm not there.

Joan - that would be great. I have an email address of yours from 2010 when you were helping me with some reservations. Is that still a good email?

@lrock - I wanted a reservation at Reed for my upcoming trip in Feb. I sent an email and didn't hear back from her for over two weeks. Since I hadn't heard back after a week or so, the person we are renting an apt from called the restaurant for me and got us a reservation.

Pizza Flora looks cute!

My 2010 email address is probably good..is it charter?

Surprised that Catherine was so slow getting back to you. I will tell her!!

a bientot...

Just had an email from Catherine Reed..I had told her that I was arriving on 2/11..she is closed on Monday so asked if she would like to meet me at Cafe Constant at 2:30..they begin their late lunch period then. My flight arrives at 11:15, so that should be great! Also told her to ask Catherine Constant to join us if she sees her. Need to drop her a note that I will be returning soon!

Things are jelling....

a bientot...

Does this mean you never went to Toulouse. Tried to get feedback on your last query, but never had an answer

Please enjoy yourself for us,
