    Glad to know they’ve delayed the passport requirement till the 6th. And so glad you got to hear the concert in Saint Eustache. That will give us time to get that done. We arrive late tomorrow and Thursday will visit with our young friends and their two beautiful children before they uproot and move themselves to Brittany. Bitter sweet for them to be leaving paris but they need space to raise their children and will be near his family.

    Thanks for the fashion! I wish wedding gowns would follow that trend and become simple (and modest) again. Some of the casual looks remind me of the sixties. There are people here in the States writing about the wonderful example that France is giving us– show your vaccination proof or you don’t get in! Kansas has been doing pretty well, but our bordering states of Missouri, Arkansas and Oklahoma are NOT, so are passing their cases over to us. So frustrating. We will enjoy watching the wrapping of L’Arc.

    Glad you introduced your waiter/friend. I saw on an episode of Rick Steves the other day that tipping is done a little different in Europe. The wait staff is paid a wage that covers their service, therefore tips are much smaller.

    I loved the fashion photos! It is nice in these uncertain times you were able to connect with two of your Paris friends! In case you haven’t heard Huntsville City Schools are requiring masks now. I think it’s wise. I have a plan as to how we handle people who contract COVID due to not being vaccinated. Each town will set up a large event tent and fill it with cots. In the summer fans will be provided and in the winter space heaters. It will be staff by doctors and nurses who are unvaccinated. Each patient will get a do it yourself COVID kit with thoughts and prayers.
    I hope the rain doesn’t keep you in too long.

    Loved your fashion photos, as well as connecting with friends. What an interesting art project that is happening at L’Arc. Can’t wait to see the finished product! Hoping the COVID spread doesn’t negatively impact your plans as you move about Paris. Rain, rain, go away🌧
