just photos around Roma








The Pope giving his blessing on Sunday after Mass. 




One of the girls standing in the light coming from a stained glass window across the church.




This last photo is all of us, taken by the bus driver.  The woman in front who I said looks like she's doing a Stevie Wonder act, is Aunt Jean, and she really just didn't smile for us - oh well.  She's such a hoot.

Having a great time - seeing the Pope today for a special event at the Vatican for Ash Wednesday.  Gotta run - miss you all so much.

Referring to the photo of the clothes out to dry, it reminds me of a photo I took somewhere in Europe of tennis shoes sitting on the window ledge within the court yard of the hotel we were staying in. Funny how something so basic can make us want to grab a camera.
