Great memories! Bernhard was thrilled you used his images. I tried to respond back to you via email but again it keeps kicking back.

Let us know what you need so we can purchase our case of wine.

Regarding the next dinner, please count us in but it will most likely only be possible for us in August.

It was a pleasure meeting both you and Brian. We feel that a friendship has begun.

Emmys start next week so amidst everything else it will be a bit NUTS!

Stay in touch! Best Camille, Bernhard
