It's been a long time since my last post.  The weather here hasn't been very nice with all the wind and rain, it is difficult to get out and do anything let alone take any photos.  Things are going well for me and I am still very happy in France.  Despite the language barrier, I am improving with each French lesson I take.  Some people think I should be fluent by now and perhaps they are right.  However, I find it difficult to rememberr all of the conjugations to verbs and so I stumble around in conversations most of the time.  I'm looking forward to the holidays.  Christmas is just around the corner and so there will be many Christmas Markets to attend and lots of shopping to do.  I don't know why I even bother.  No one ever writes to me or bothers to send me anything.  Still, it's about giving and not receiving.  Until the weather clears up a bit, be content with this bench.  Asseyez-vous.058 La Saline, Equeurdreville
