    Sorry mom 😜 Was that “statue” alive? I bet Bernie is right about the “banner” – it looks like their scrub pants. Nice gesture. See you soon!!

      Yes, the statue is a mime. He is alive, doesn’t move or speak. Great concentration to stand like you about to fall off the pedestal. If you take a photo, it’s customary to leave a euro.

    It sounds like you are settling into some of the routines you and Bernie enjoy. It is indeed odd to view your photos without the busy scenes you are familiar with. Depending on that darn Delta variant perhaps people will begin to venture out later this summer.

    The green has been fun. You’ll see it show up in some of my drawings soon. The lovers are fun, too– one pair had matching shoes. Bet you are getting excited about your family’s arrival.

    Natalie, hope ur visit is super! Linda, it seems to me the pictures of these lovers were easier to capture since they’re out in the open with less crowds. Lovely 💖

    Parisians are really creative, love the watering can with flowers and grass to make it look like it was watering the pot below.
    Does the colorful posts on the wall have any significance?

      Melanie, we dont’ know the answer about the multi-colored posts but they are cheerful. There is a high school directly across from the ones in the picture. This is not the gay district so I don’t think it has anything to do with LGBTQ.

    The watering can was great. Looked like you caught one couple from 2 different angles. I wish you could get some of them to wave and say hello to your friends around the world. I hope Bernie and you are enjoying some the the incredible exciting finishes in Le Tour.

      Actually, most of these folks are French because there are very few tourists. They do NOT like their picture taken so I have to be super discreet.

    The flowers and watering can has to be one of my all time favs. So creative. Natalie should be there soon!👏🏻

    I agree with Bernie on the flags/banner. At first I thought they were scrub pants! Maybe green should have been your theme since there seems to be plenty.
