    You two don’t look at all exhausted! Tell Chris hello for us, if he even remembers us old folks. Wish I could show him a pic of him and Jason as babes. Am sure they will fall in love with Paris as we did!🇫🇷❤️

    What fun you’ll have! I hope the weather stays so perfect. Imagine the smiles when no one is tired! Wish we had some of those bikes in H’ville. I guess there’d be a long line but wow to those too. Can’t wait to hear more.

    Andrew took a great shot of the Eiffel Tower! It’s hard to capture in all it’s glory. And Bernie’s shot of the Gargoyles is excellent. Exercise bikes are a great addition! Kudos all around!
