I talked with my mom last week, and mentioned an article in the NYT about Chelsea Clinton‘s upcoming wedding. My mom knew most of the details, including the location of Rhinebeck, New York. The last time my parents were in New York state, they’d visited nearby Hudson.
Did you see that Astor Courts was built to resemble the Grand Trianon at Versailles? She wasn’t familiar with that detail.
“Oh, so you saw the article …?” I asked, thinking it had been reprinted in a Chicago paper. “No,” she replied. “I read it on some web site.”
Some web site. Interesting. Now I see where I get my fascination for celebrity magazines, gossip web sites and the like. I sent my mom the article this week.
