    The chair series has to be one of the most fun of all.

    We will have Pierre and Laurie in our hearts and prayers; I know them from the family tree! Unfortunately, soon we will all be knowing someone affected by the virus, and it will get more real each day. Blessings on all of the Verdiers and on you, Linda.

    What fun, The Chairs!

    So sad of Bernie’s cousins plight. We wish them well and hope they will come out of their predicament well and healthy.

    What a charming way to lift our spirits. Thank you for the delightful chair photos. Please keep us posted on Bernie’s cousins. What a nightmare! As for the donations…great minds. Bob and I discussed that yesterday.

    Linda, looking at the wonderful colors of these chairs has inspired me to paint some outdoor chairs in a different color. Prayers for Bernie’s cousins. I have seen the news about the ship. I hope Bernie gets good news soon.

    Bonjour! Thank you for your blog. It is definitely a comfort during this time. I am looking forward to it every morning as I have done in the past. The Parisian chairs are amazing.
    Prayers going up for Bernie’s cousins! I hope they are able to get off the ship soon and stay healthy.

    L&B, always love the chairs!

    Like your many other fans, I feel I ‘know’ Pierre and Laurie through your posts over the years, as you shared your time with them, in their beautiful home (and I remember an amazing ice (??) cake), on your outings in France, the trip to Norway! and the photos of them with the beautiful group at Bernie’s 80th in Paris.

    It is indeed comforting to know Laurie’s a physician. It must give them great comfort also to know you and Bernie are relatively close to Florida and may be able to have them with you. God bless and will keep them and you and Bernie in our prayers.

      Their ship did not make it through the Panama Canal. We’re waiting to see if they get put on the Rotterdam and it can maybe go through. Though it would be a wonderful gesture, I’m hoping that Laurie as a physician doesn’t volunteer to deal with the sick. It would be just like her!

    I still love the Paris bistro chairs and the precious couple who have taken me on their adventures in Paris! I am praying for Laurie and Pierre!

    Jim and I were hoping they were not on that ship! Oh dear! That worries me so much! I hope they can make it here. I know Bernie must be worried sick. Please keep us informed. I loved seeing all your chair photos, but am sad that they are all empty now. I just hope 🤞 things will have opened up and we can once again enjoy all those terrase this summer.

    Can’t explain it, but the chairs are even more entertaining and interesting than before. Who in the world would have thought pics of little chairs could be this entertaining. I’m sure you’ll keep us posted — Pierre and Laurie Verdier feel like friends after following your visits with them the last few years.

    The Bistro chair blog series was so much fun! It’s a delight to revisit it. Continued prayers for Pierre and Laurie’s safe return to the shore.

    Praying for Pierre & Laurie to have protection from the virus and get back quickly. Scary, scary situ. The chairs was a fun one 🙂 I much like the chairs above the leopard ones…perhaps because they remind me of the trendy farmhouse style that is so popular right now. All of the tightly woven wicker designs and some of the colorful and patterned metal ones definitely made it a great theme!

    VERY apt – empty chairs. Spooky. Love it, though.
