    Wow! That video is so heart wrenching! With all the drama in the US, we seem to have forgotten the war against the Ukrainian people. We really enjoyed our leisurely day with you and Bernie. Sometimes, gals just need a little gal time! Thanks for the dance pics. It was fun!

      I think the video of you guys dancing was too long. The other was pretty short. I left you some messages on FB Messenger.

    How fun to be able to take in the fun and frivolous around you, as well as the heartbreaking. I love the pictures of Jim and Peggy dancing in the street! The sunglasses reflection in your glasses was my favorite of today’s photo collection.

    Wow. Those little “dead” children with flower crowns at the lead of the event and the empty scooter really got to me.

    But glad you had such a lovely day in Paris. Those perfect times restore the soul.

    Yes, the video was heart- wrenching. Charles uses a genealogy program begun by some 20 somethings in Kiev. He has communicated with them and they have sent pics of themselves and how they have had to adapt to survive as well as keep their business going. Their stories and what they are going thru are as gut wrenching. They appreciate knowing they are supported around the world. I keep a bouquet of sunflowers tied with a blue bow on my mailbox. Just a little way of showing we care.

    The video of Peggy and Jim made me want to get up and dance! As always, I enjoyed the photos. The demonstration about Ukraine is heartbreaking, especially with the children lying on the street.
