Lunch at the picnic table. From left to right: Olivier, Jacques, Eric, and Jean-Marc.
Braise gets a trim... It took scissors to get some of the burrowed in burrs out...
More burrs. I'm afraid Eric will have to throw the now-torn scarf away (look at all those burrs on the table), but he insists it will still protect him from the cold back home in Brussels. The men's positive attitudes and "ever-smiles" never ceased to amaze me. Many thanks to Eric, Olivier, Michel, and Jacques for adding color and joy to what would have been a bleak weekend without you!
