Hi Jo,

Well, this was a fun read. I love raspberries, too, and just had some yesterday. Yum! Never been to Paris, but would love to go. Been to New York City, and loved visiting it, but wouldn't want to live there.

Glad your teenager is doing so well back home. I bet he loved his new room decor. And doesn't he get the summer off from school, like kids do around here?

Have a great weekend!

Hugs,

Renie
