It’s May 8 and that means “la petite Poune” fabulous miniature Gardencourtisane is celebrating her birthday today. Pounie aka Martha Gabrielle was just 3 as she stood here, all apple-cheeky and smart in her dufflecoat, on the N. shore of Mississquoi Bay in Venise-en-Québec, QC. Palais du Hot-Doge vapeur in background? Kate and I were scouting locations for the cover of our French Record and Pat D. drove the old Ford wagon out onto the ice transporting the 2 of us, Rufus, Pounie, Sylvan, so Randy S. could get a few shots of us among the ice-fishing shacks that dotted the bay. The ice was thick and it was all perfectly safe (we’re here) though we did not convince Gaby (not here) who was along on this excursion à Venise. She stayed on the shore with tiny 1 yr old Lily.
Many happy returns of the day dear Martha. It was wonderful to sing with you and the gang this past Sunday May 3 to celebrate fellow Taurus Pete Seeger’s 90th at MSGarden. You’re in good company.
Les gentils courtiers et courtisanes de Gardencourt.
