I froze as I rounded the bar, my Julia Childs' pillbox hat was moving! It seemed to float an inch or so off the floor and was heading straight to me! It had to be her, right? Gulp! And then I heard her.."Su-Surprise!" and with a grunt and a heave Mossy threw the hat off to the side. Oh, Glory be! It was an outfit that perfectly duplicated mine until you got to the feet. Julia Childs stood below and in front of me, a gnome that is, dressed like Julia Childs. She had on the classic pumps, but unfortunately the hose she wore were hot pink fishnets! I slapped my hand over my mouth, just in time. I feared what piece of clothing I would lose next, if this laugh escaped.
"Your her" I cried instead. " By George (or rather Julia), you've done it! Mossy beamed with pride and began to strut for all to see (this would be me). My last glimpse of the wee Julia for the day was a memorable one for sure! She had slipped outside and stood on the porch railing. Below her as if she were holding court, six doves listened quite intently. What was she saying? I thought as I cracked open a window. Yes, there it was again. In a lilting screech she did her best with none other than Julia's greeting, Bon Appetit! And to you, Bon Jour!!!!!
