LuAnn discusses Ramona's pull on Sonja and Carole's diagnosis of her name-dropping.
Welcome back my friends! Glad you could join us again. In this episode, you get to see my good friend Terri Gold's photography exhibition of festivals and sacred sites in Southeast Asia. She's photographed my family for the last sixteen years since we moved back from Europe ,and I encourage you to check out her website, TerriGoldImagery.com.
I was glad you had the chance to see Jacques again in this episode. No matter where we go or whom we are with, Jacques charms everyone. I'm very lucky to have him in my life.
There is no doubt that Ramona and Sonja are long-time friends who know how to push each other's buttons. I think Ramona tries to control Sonja, but Sonja is a free spirit and often goes her own way -- even when Ramona disagrees. They seem to find a way to make their friendship work even if it wouldn't work for me.
I'm so excited to go to London with the girls, and I was glad that Heather invited me to go along. I admire Heather's independence and how she stands up for herself and her decisions. This trip will be a lot of fun. I think a "Ramona free"-trip will be relaxing, and although I know that Heather is going to experience the wrath of Ramona for excluding her, she's a grown woman who makes her own decisions.
Carole was poking fun at me about name-dropping and I didn't take offense -- and I hope that people with Tourette's didn't either. Having lived in Europe for over a decade, the Borgheses are close friends of mine and I was just seeing if Carole knew them too.
Ramona's outburst at Sonja during her party was all too typical unfortunately. I know that Ramona counts on Sonja to take her side, but in this case Sonja stood up for herself and for Heather, which obviously made Ramona uncomfortable. Instead of being there for her good friend, Ramona made a scene and stormed off. Selfish.
Until next week, bisous!
