I finally found a computer that would allow me to actually see the pictures before posting. I am sorry if you got this message twice. Today, I had a problem in that the language was in Georgian. It took me awhile to figure out what to do.

Loved the market and limes pix. Know you are enjoying your trip. I just returned from a wedding in Arkansas and visit with my friend. Leaving Friday for the beach for fall break. Tell Walt I know why he wanted to help the teenagers practice their German! Didn't know if you knew Jeanne Coleman died very suddenly on Thursday. Heard it may have been acute leukemia which she didn't know she had. Was in the hospital only 2 days. So sad. Missing you both. Weather here has been beautiful but is cool and rainy today. R

I'm really enjoying YOUR trip. Almost feel like I'm there. Have forwarded the Armenian ones to my daughter-in-law who sent them to her father in California who came from Armenia. They are thrilled to see them!!!
