Adorable! I love it!

sissie said...

I think it's the accent and the eye contact. Looks like that ole gent has all he can handle.

Love it.

My favorite thing is when I'm on the metro early in the day, and see all the spiffy French men going to work. They take such pride in their appearance... and oh, those scruffy beards and pointy shoes! Ooo, la, la~

Francy said...

I agree. The accent really gets me! Great photo!

Darling as can be....I had a little 80 something français charm me in Eze, France one day; he was a merchant in a tapestry shop and we were chatting and then he suddenly gives me a tapestry pillow, on the house! I said in French, "WHy are you giving me this lovely pillow, Monsieur?" He softly said in his lovely language, "Because you Madame, you are adorable!" Iwill never forget that "FRENCH" moment. Ahhhhhhh.....I was feeling like I was in an Audrey Hepburn movie!!!!

Have a magical day chèrie! Anita

Frenchmen can charm the pants off a nun.
I love the European Frenchmen, can you imagine how they responded to a young southern belle her first time far away from home.
We also have our Cajun Frenchmen here at home, that have had me swooning a time or two as well.
ooo la, la...mon cherie' ooooo la, LA! Nobody can kiss your hand better than a Frenchmen. I have chill bumps just thinking about it.

i just can NOT resist an elderly man,
especially if he still has a twinkle in
his eye!

an elderly french man would just up
the ante!

Hola Mimi, I just received your nice comment, and will go and check my mail. Here in the central and south part of Chile is earthquaking almost everyday since the huge earthquake but no one has been to harming as the big one, thanks for asking.
I really love to see elder man and woman like them walking in the streets so lovely together.

Oh, I love this picture!:-)))It feels like life long romance...French men are charming and elegant. The accent always melts my heart!:-)))

Obee Designs said...

Bonjour my dearest Mimi,
I hope you are having a simply lovely day!
I just love cute little old men. There is something about them that is so cute! I am guessing little old FRENCH men are just that much cuter.......old la la HAHA!!
Actually, this photo reminds me of my dad. He got to the point were his walking wasn't very stable so he would hold onto my mom like that. His sister was single and always around so the three of them would go places together. They were like the Three Muskateers. Seeing this photo of these people from the back makes me think it could be MY three amigos. It is so neat to see a picture like that because it just goes to show that human nature, no matter where you live, if you have a way about you, it is VERY attractive, no matter the age. I understand, though, French men are just a little sexier!!!wink wink :)

I hope you are having a wonderful day. Try to stay away from the old French men, though...or not :)
XoXo
Gail
P.S. I know, I owe you an e-mail! You have been on my mind, my friend :)

A Refocused Life said...

Great image. This guy has ladies on both arms - he must be quite the charmer.

Green Monkey said...

I don't know what it is about French men but the last time I was in Paris I followed one, for no reason other than he was mysteriously SEXY (not to mention half my age). He climbed out of a vintage mini, a cigarette hanging from the right side of his mouth and his scarf, swung to the left. wispy brown hair, heartbreaking blue eyes... yummie
