Well, my plans to update this blog while in France fell by the wayside. Too much happening, too tired, too difficult to get to the computer, and the very frustrating keyboard all contributed to my lack of posting. But just let me say that we had a fabulous time. Some of the things and places we visited: Auvers-sur-Oise and an Impressionist Museum and Van Gogh's rooms and the church he painted and his grave, the Louvre and Mona Lisa, Winged Victory, and Venus, Notre Dame Cathedral, Montmartre, Musee d'Orsay, Normandy and the D-Day beaches, the Memorial at Caen, the American Cemetery, Pointe-du-Huc Ranger Memorial, Mont St Michel, Aachen Germany, Brussels, and Bruges. I took over 900 pictures and here is one of them showing us with Linda from Belgium. Now I'm getting myself back into the swing of things at home and it's quite a letdown, let me tell you. If it weren't for all the pictures, it would just seem like it had been a wonderful dream.
My hosts in France were the most wonderful, gracious people. They did everything possible to make my stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible and I'm so glad that I had the honor of staying with them.
