2001: Notre Dame


     
·       I was glued to my news yesterday.  Shocked.  Like the burning of the Liner Normandie, I was guessing this fire was worker started.  An accident.  My friend DeAnna has an apartment in Paris, and I bet she feels awful.  The same for Bobbie whose second home is Paris.   I know that everyone who has ever been there is posting Notre Dame photographs.  Mine are faded.  Old disc photos instead of jpgs.

·       My stitches are out.  At two pm, I go for my eye pre-op.  I’m still taking Advil and 1 aspirin a day.  I will ask what they want me to do…doctor’s orders here, doctor’s orders there.

2001 Notre Dame boat tour.                      

·       It was the day before Easter.  We wandered through the underground ruins fascinated as no one told us they were there.  We wandered in the church my mouth agape with awe; G’s camera silent.  The Notre Dame Choir was practicing for the upcoming Easter serviced.  I will never forget those moments in this magic place.

  • Gratitude’s:  My list is pretty endless.  I am so glad to be here.

  5. Wishing you only the best results. The burning of the cathedral was terribly sad. Thank goodness so many artifacts were saved.

  Tidy, much more so now.     Thread is mixed in with the books as are pens and those ever useful measuring implements.   My desk is a bit...
