I'm winding down now. Here's one more slideshow of some of the statuary on the west-facing façade of the cathrédrale Notre-Dame d'Amiens, built between 1220 and 1290 — 800 years ago. Amiens is a medium-size city about 70 miles north of Paris, in Picardy and near the English Channel coast.
Weather report: our high temperature yesterday was above 90ºF, and it was at least 90ºF up in our loft space by about 7:00 p.m. Our thermometer up there read 32.8ºC (91.4ºF). I've been busy watering potted plants this morning, because it's supposed to be even hotter today that it was yesterday. Oh, and good-bye July.
Here are two two selfies I took yesterday to show me at age 71 and also the new glasses I got last week and this week. The older wire-framed glasses are new lenses in frames that I already had been wearing for a few years.
The newer plastic glasses are new frames and lenses. These frames make me think of glasses I wore back in the 1950s and 1960s, when I was a kid. How about that pandemic buzzcut?
