Our 1983 holiday with The Vachettes, in Fontaine, France, has been featured before. The batch of black and white negatives I identified and scanned today was of a tennis match between Arnoux, the husband of Marie-Helene Vachette, and my son Michael. I don’t remember the outcome, although I believe they were evenly matched.
Michael had youth on his side,
but, in putting him under pressure his French opponent demonstrated a certain skill.
Sam, looking hopeful here, probably got a game in as well.
With all four of us in varying stages of chest infections, there had been plenty of food left over from the Spice of India takeaway, to serve as our meal this evening. I drank another glass of the pinot noir; Becky chose rosé, and Ian drank cider.
Deuce and juice… The whole lot of you need to get better fast…
Thanks, Bruce. Witty as ever. I’m on the mend , but then I started it.
Don’t look at the starting bit, Derrick. Look at the finishing bit. You are the leader of hope! They should/shall bow to you! There’s hope beyond the virus, and you have shown them that!
Thank you, Bruce
Timeless photos. It’s always nice to have some at hand, as photos are great for reliving our most cherished moments!
Thank you Shana. That’s true, and they offer blog material when we can’t get out 🙂
Nothing like the whole family dropping like rocks! Keep up the good eating and drinking and soon all will be well. At least that’s my hope.
I’m probably now the fittest. We had a friend coming this week and have postponed her stay
Wine is good for you, so self-medicating with pinot noir would seem to be the way forward. Keep going and you will soon be well!!
Thanks Quercus. Improved today
Love Sam’s hair. Get well soon.
Thank you, Mary. A lot better today
Love these old black and whites. Get better soon! Have you had a cup of fresh sage steeped in hot water? Always helps me when I have chest congestion. Take care!
Thank you Ashley. I’m on the mend, thanks. Didn’t know the sage trick. Perhaps next time
Hope you all get healthy soon. And not keep passing it round and round amoungst you.
I hope so too. I’m not at all sure that I haven’t picked it up again. Thanks, Oscar.
Be well soon. Again, no fair getting sick in the summer!
Thanks, Laurie. getting there
Love this post, Derrick! Hope you are feeling better.
Thank you Amy. Getting there
