Happy Bastille Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                 Darlings, you know how much I love Madame Defarge, so what better way to honor Bastille Day, than with a portrait of  her? Of course, the real portrait is that given by Blanche Yurka, in the 1936, David O. Selznick, movie.  Who could forget the cat fight between Yurka and Edna May Oliver?  Not until "The Turning Point," 41 years later, was this scene surpassed.

                                 So, whether you are lighting fireworks, or having an elegant French meal, have a Happy Bastille Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                 Allons, enfants!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
