    The Bastille Market was one of our favorite places even though when we went it was pouring! I have a beautiful purse from there. Happy to hear Apple could help you; I enjoy reading your blog each morning. Your fashion photos were fun to see and I covet your dining experiences.

      I remember our rainy soiree at the market. As you said, it was still fun!

    Linda, what a fabulous post — I felt I was with you, Bernie, and the Bilbo’s so thanks for letting me tag along! Unfortunately, at the same time I was reading your post — Monday, 8/2, at 7:30 a.m. — I was watching footage of rioting in Paris about the Vaccine Passport issue. Ugh. I hope it wasn’t a big as it appeared on screen just now.

    The news from Alabama and Florida is tragic, as you know. But new vaccination rates are up, so that is some hope. Right now my arts and arts/education colleagues and I are scrambling to undo in-person events, etc. The schools are all over the place about masks. Your photos from Paris are a respite, for sure!

      No riots around us, thank goodness! We rarely have the TV on which is such a nice break so we haven’t seen much about the rioting though I know it has become pretty bad. They have moved the start of the vaccine pass now to August 9, from August 1. Who knows? It may get moved again.

    Bring some of those classy masks back! We’re fully remasking. Found out last night our Amy has COVID. And their schools start back tomorrow with no system mask mandates. Thank the Lord Huntsville city is requiring. So scary here. I’m even having groceries delivered again. So glad you all are having such a wonderful time. Saw pics on the news of protests there.

      So sorry to hear about Amy. Was she vaccinated? Hopefully, it won’t spread to the rest of the family. There are protests here but we have managed to avoid them. We’re being very careful as well. I presume you are home?

    Remember, it is August. Those folks are all en vacance!

      Yes, perhaps. We’ll go back in September and note the difference.
