Free Home Delivery......



I sort of miss the sight of these little red vans that zip around the streets of Paris,
 delivering groceries to la maison Parisian
  always driven by a handsome French man of course.

And in case you're wondering what a teinturerie is - it's a laundromat!

Great capture, I like the motion here and the beautiful reflections on that window shop!
*** after some days out and now back home here, don't mention about laundry because I'm getting crazy right now! LOL
Thanks for your always kind comments and visits,
hugs

The little van has a very earnest look about it! Such a lovely vivid scene, Dianne.

My daughter still gets her milk delivered to the door:) I love that..Not a cute red van though~

My grocery delivery man is not handsome. In fact I'm pretty sure he has a second job as a bouncer because he always looks like he's been a few rounds with someone. But then he is from Marseille, not Paris!

Great street scene and a handsome delivery man, too? Oooh la la! I could deal with that! Fun post, great capture as always, Dianne!

I have not noticed these vans either but now that I know there are cute French drivers... Hummm, our little soirée would have been so much nicer with a delivery (rather than schlepping up the wine and groceries) and perhaps he would have joined us! (hehehe)

Bises,

Grace- I've never yet seen an ugly French man - they're all handsome with the most delightful manners.

Hi Dianne! It seems that everybody is on holidays... Here it’s true, but someone has to stay... ;)

Ah, la R4... ;)

You are lucky to have handsome drivers, it's not the case here, lol ! Not right out of a horror movie but nearly.
