The Many Lives of Paris

Some places in Real Life are more tempting than others to try to replicate. I doubt that you'll ever find an SL sim that lovingly replicates Bugtussle, Oklahoma. (OK, maybe if someone wishes to honor Carl Albert.) Paris, on the other hand...who could resist the urge to merge with the splurge... er, to recreate the City of Lights?

I've seen three Paris sims so far, and I'm sure there are more. This most recent one (to me) is by far the most impressive: Paris Eiffel.

I promise I'll have photos, but to my great dismay I find that the Snowglobe SL client seems to have a bug that caused me great trouble for a while in the past--photos have stray spots. Watch this space.

when the Beverly Hillbillies (TV version) wanted to go to the big city, they would drive to Bugtussle-- but they were from East Tennessee, not Oklahoma. Grannie once claimed to have been born in Limestone, TN (which was about 10 miles from Greeneville, where I lived for a time. Davy Crockett was born in Limestone.), but Tennesee seems to have no Bugtussle-- so I guess they had to drive a long way in their Model T to go shopping in Oklahoma.

That's right! I'd forgotten about the Beverly Hillbillies and Bugtussle. Apparently Alabama has a two-word Bug Tussle.
