Parler Paris–your taste of life in Paris and France

Dear Parler Paris and French Property Insider Subscribers,

True Story — “Coming to a Neighborhood Near You”:

Visiting friend from Hawaii Gar Westfall stopped into a laundromat in the 13th arrondissement to check out the price of doing his laundry. There were about five young women there washing their own things when a tall, dark, good looking and well-built young man entered. Naturally all eyes were on him, but he did what they least expected.

In no time at all, he proceeded to undress…entirely…except for a T-shirt which came down only as far as his naval! Each garment went into the machine, he added the powder, the money and started it up. Then, he sat bare-bottomed on the cold plastic chair and waited for the machine to do its thing.

The young women tried to keep their eyes off him, but were having a hard time controlling their giggles! Gar went on his way, and now we’re sorry he didn’t hang around to get the end of the story for us to tell!

Stories like this happen every day in Paris — and it’s our goal to tell them!…These and all the others that illustrate what life in Paris is really like. Unfortunately, not long ago, more than 4000 subscribers were lost from our roster, mostly AOL addresses, due to what we believe was a blacklisting by AOL for reasons unknown.

Many of you wrote and called to let us know that you missed our regular twice-weekly missives and the fun stories like this one — for which we are very grateful!

Because of this unfortunate circumstance, we are in the process of moving our mailing list to another host server to ensure more reliable service and keep you reading 100% of the time! Therefore, we will try to resubscribe as many lost addresses as we can so that the newsletters will arrive just as they always did…but still, we’re sure many of your friends may be lost…unless you lend a hand!

I ask you to please send this message to anyone you think may been a subscriber at one time or to anyone you think would like to receive Parler Paris or French Property Insider!
