Donna's French Class

So here we all are...........Wednesday's children. Other days she teaches the much more intelligent and advanced students. (I would I know?)
As you can see, we meet in le Restaurant. I've tried to convince Francis that pronunciation would be much better if we could have a bottle of red served at each session!!

Still wandering around Sainte-Chapelle!!!

I have been trying to work on some of these photos in between the agitation of the film in the fixer! Couldn't resist showing you a few. Sorry that some of them are so big and take a while to download. It's all the detail.

Beautiful vaulted ceiling in the "gift shop". Tried to lay on my back on the floor but the guards didn't like it.

Down, down, down.........

More of the fabulous windows. Hard to imagine a people who could or would make such a place! We have started French language lessons from Donna F. and she has been teaching us some of the reasons why the French are so unique. Really a wonderful time for us!!
Harpsichord waiting in the corner. (for you?)

This kind of shows the tiny size of this place. It is really something different! 13th Century!
Enough for now. I am really loving this. People I meet on the street tell me that they have been looking at this and it really energizes me to keep doing it. I guess it is sort of like publishing......

Jon gets Married (par Deux) ?

Ahhhh, yes. The bachelor party. I had to weasel an invitation for myself but I guess they didn't mind too much. Of course, a North Idaho bachelor party ( a real one) consists of an evening of consumption! Beer, food, and bullets!!

Here Bug and Fred discuss the merits of various 9mm loads. Gotta have stopping power!

Jon blasts away with his latest toy. Nice machine. Very very loud!

Here he tries that Schwartzeneger trick of dual 12 guage shotguns. Mowed down several small trees! The wild west!

Time to remove the earplugs and clean the place up. Pack in, pack out. Off to the BBQ.

Kami and Chris wait their turn at the rehearsal. Pretty cute, huh? Yea!!

Finally the big day arrives. Weather near perfect. Good friends and amazing amounts of family from across the world! Jon checks on some stock quotes at the last second. Kami is looking for a light. I expect her to float up off the ground at any moment.

The happy couple. And they are.
We thank God for his love of us. And for Kami.

Jon, at his peril, makes fun of some detail on the wedding dress. Careful, Jon. That bouquet
is pretty heavy!

The wedding closet comes through for us. Nice.

Jon holds court. And they are enthralled. Amazing. How very wise these young people are nowdays!

Fun with Emma and Bea. They are pretty strong medicine. They love Kami and visa-versa...

The bunch of us...

And the Faux side. Toughest subject was the dog. They always are. Love these family gatherings.

Emma and Bea doing their part to mess up the planet. Sure pretty but what a mess!

All the formalities finished, Jon tries to convice Kami that she really can get it all in at the same time. Typical female, she resists. Go for it Jon.

Ok, just about enough you are thinking!
I have a few other adventures to display but school just started and now it is like the first hill of the coaster. When I hit the bottom, I may be able to think again.

Jon gets Married (part 1)

Our son Jon was married to beautiful Kami Miller (Kami LaMoreaux) yesterday at East City Park.
Everything went wonderfully and we all had a great time. Much more to show when I wake up from the huge party!
