Just when we were despairing that Discover Paris! co-founder Monique Wells might never get the recognition that she is due, we woke up this morning to a mailbox full of messages from friends in the U.S. declaring that they saw her on 60 Minutes last night. What a surprise! We rushed to our computer and watched the 60 Minute video segment and indeed, there she is at the U.S. Ambassador’s reception that was held on May 25, 2012 for two-time Pulitzer Prize winner David McCullough. Monique had approached Mr. McCullough and asked him to autograph her copy of his book, The Greater Journey — Americans in Paris.
To top things off, when we closely examined the video segment, we spotted ourselves standing together while we listened to Mr. McCullough’s talk. In this photo he lets out a cheer because he had just kissed British-American film and stage star Olivia de Havilland, who was attending the ceremony. Oh, lucky man!
