ON THE WAY/CROSS THE TRACKS















COMING OR GOING, DEPENDING ON YR PERSPECTIVE.

MHC'S DIGITAL CAMERA BATTERY IS MAYBE 7 OR 8 YEARS OLD, AND CAN'T HOLD A CHARGE FOR MORE THAN 7 OR 8 MINUTES, SO THERE WON'T BE AS MANY PHOTOS OF THE AMAZING W/LICHENS TRIP TO FRANCE POSTED UP HERE AS ORIGINALLY PLANNED. ORRR, NOT PLANNED... PLAN AHEAD, REMEMBER? HA HA.

but, THANKS TONS TO ANYONE AND EVERYONE WE MET IN TOULOUSE. CAN'T WAIT TO COME BACK/GO BACK. SUCH A GOOD TIME.

AND MON DIEU! WHO SHOULD BE ON THE PLANE ON THE WAY THERE BUT CAROL JACKSON AND JIM DJORLING! OH LA VACHE.
