I’m obsessed with these old Dick Tracy comics.  I love that Detective Tracy is always up against a well-dressed bad guy.  Criminals and Detectives should be this well dressed nowadays.  These are all from the 1930’s – 1950’s and I found them on Ebay.  I also love the artwork.

I spotted this gem of a book in a Paris bookshop window.  This book is not to be confused with “The Indecisive Moment”.

After a fun morning of shopping dans La Grande Epicerie, I made and enjoyed this wonderful sandwich at the Jardin du Luxembourg.

Baguette with proscuitto.  I'm adding the salted beef.
