    Happy Birthday Janine 🎈 🎉 🎈 🎉 🎉
    Wow that looks a wonderful birthday party. How lovely. Janine does look surprised. 🎁
    How memorable to celebrate with her children and grand and great grandchildren. Blessings of God.

  6. This is heartwarming. Family get together s are becoming few and far between, the family unit if spread out and so much distance separates. To see this is beyond beautiful as is Janine, Happy Birthday Janine.

    Wow! What a gathering! And what a cheese plate! That’s a nice hall, too. Truly blessings, everything. Is that the home that was refurbished a few years ago? The courtyard outside looks familiar. And one of the six must be the one who checked the library for me—thanks again!

    • The one who made researches to find the article of Gati from the colloque of Lille 1982& is Veronique ( at the left side of my wife Janine) . She commented above.
      Yes, Neil, it was a large cheese plate :abundance and diversity!

    Bonjour mon Ami MICHEL que c’est beau d être tous réunies pour l’anniversaire de ta fille , belle famille

    Ce jour
    je regarde le ciel et je pense
    je m’évade et m’envole dans le plus grand silence
    voir un monde meilleur
    Je rêve, je m’imagine que le bonheur est
    sans challenge,ni concurrence,ni vainqueur,ni vaincu
    Voir tout le monde avec le sourire
    Regarder les enfants , courir , sauter , s’amuser ,

    en cette période de Noel tout est beau

    Aimer toujours aimer quoi de plus beau
    sans le dire on peut le montrer , quel joli cadeau
    Je passe te souhaiter une bonne de journée ou soirée
    Gros bisous . Bernard
