    Jujy, I'm sorry to hear that your sons condition has worsened for the time being. I hope that he makes good progress and that you manage to remain stalwart. Your piece about the young men at the funeral is very moving.

    Just popping in to say HELLO to Foustie (squeeee!!!) and to give ((bear hugs)) to jujy54. It sounds like you're practicing the hardest part of all, in this process: acceptance of your son's condition. Good for you!

    Erin, knockout is right !. I am always a complete mess after flying long haul but she looked immaculate. Some serious stamina too considering we didn't finish up until late.

    Mike I started to reach for Jicky today but opted for 8 sprays of Mouchoir de Monsieur. I'll probably wear Jicky tomorrow .

    Good afternoon to everyone.

    I'm wearing Bulgari Black on a very hot day.

    So sorry jujy. What a difficult time. Thinking of you and your family, and your bereaved friend and hers.

    Hi Foustie, nice to see you!

    (((jujy))) sorry to hear your news. That is so very sad about that young man's death, too.

    Xscent; you did indeed look a knockout in that photo. Very hard to believe you'd just come off a long haul flight. Kudos to you!

    Jujy, I'm sorry you are going through this. My good friend has a son in the same condition. You can't force people to help themselves. It's a terrific burden. Again, my heart and prayers go out to you.

    Jujy, I am so very sorry your son's illness has gotten hold of him again. We have a close friend with advanced schizophrenia who has been in and out of treatment, on the street and in and out again, and it is sad but helping her doesn't do anything to help her, so we just feel helpless, I can't imagine your pain but do understand that frustration.

    ErinK, we went to Ana Maria Island, it's a little bit north of Sarasota. St. Augustine is very cool, oldest city in the U.S!

    Dear Jujy, my heart goes out to you. Having grown up with a mother with paranoid schizophrenia and a sister with Bipolar (and other things), I can very much relate to the fact that you cannot provide a place for him. Such a burden to watch those we love with these illnesses. Hugs dear and prayers for solutions.

    Xscent! You must be having mad fun dear girl! I must go look out for that photo, I have every confidence you will meet with the 'knockout' designation. Have fun times sniffing!

    I began my day with Flower of Immortality (from a sample). It was nice, but I don't see myself ever making a purchase.

    After the shower, it was on to Serge Lutens 5'Oclock Au Gingembre. Again from a sample (I'm trying like mad to empty as many of those .07ml vials I have!) I wasn't especially enamored with that one. (this is good, very good!(

    Now, I'm in a very simple Nag Champa perfume oil I picked up somewhere or other. It's making me smile so I guess it's a keeper.

    I'm of to Phoenix next to pick up the mother of my grandbaby! Grandbaby in tow! Yay!
    I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

    I'm wearing Daim Blond today. I even received two separate "You smell so goood!" compliments. I did not have to work late, so I got home just in time to watch Team USA beat Ghana in World Cup soccer! So exciting! Hednic, did I remember that you were going to be there? I hope you are and having the time of your life!

    Jujy, sending hugs and good thoughts for you and your son ...

    Xscent and Jon: wow! loved the picture and it sure looked as if you were having a wonderful time! You guys ARE knockouts!

    hugs to all ...
    I've trademarked the color bleu

    Jon, Thank you for the mini-BN meet up report and lovely pic! You both look fabulous and it sounds like it was such fun! I wish I had nude bicycle parades greeting me when I entered foreign countries!

    Xscent, you look beautiful! I could only dream of looking as wonderfully put together and glowing after sleep deprivation, a loooong flight, and a sniffathon! Hope you are having a phenomenal time in France!

    Also hoping that ClaireV and Evangeline are enjoying their trips as well! All these fab vacays and beach trips, photos, and plans are making me really crave a little get away somewhere… RHM, very belated birthday wishes! The pic you posted today is delish-- can I slip into that world? lol...

    (((Jujy))) hugs for consolation and support.

    Mike, I’m so happy for you! That sounds like a really perfect weekend. I just noticed I’m getting brown too, but it’s from the outdoor drudgery. This weekend I re-potted, sorted and placed potted plants.

    SOTD was “vintage” Dior Homme. I keep smelling something yummy and violet-y that must have spilled somewhere on my desk while decanting last night, so I think SOTE is going to scratch this violet itch… perhaps Violetta di Parma or maybe the simple but delightful Violettes de Toulouse.

    Hope everyone has a good evening!
