have a great weekend...

For the Friday photos today, I'm sharing some vintage French postcards my mother recently gave me.  You can click on them to enlarge if you'd like a better look...


It reads - "The main street in this town - notice how narrow the  streets are, especially the side walks.  We usually walk in the streets the way you see the people doing as the walks are too narrow for two people to walk on".



 It reads - "We parked our machines here and the Lieutenant gave us half an hour to see the town".


  

It reads - "I have promenaded here myself several times".

Have a great one and I'll see you on Monday.

These are so cool, Jeanette! You should have the photos enlarged, especially of the backs, and frame them, I think that would look so amazing! XX!

I thought it said "I have proudly evaded myself here."

That's probably a huge Freudian slip!
