Klaus Barbie was known as the butcher of Lyon.
Here in Cluny my hairdresser is on the rue 4eme Battaillon du Choc.
It was the name given the the battalion formed after the D Day landings from the Free French Army and the local Resistance.
We have a memorial for all the Jewish people who were sent to the camps.

If age is just a number, well two really in most people on SF’s case, then why can’t I swap my numbers around ?
Would love to be the age of my swapped numbers again :open_mouth::rofl:

(Ann Coe) #51

Oups, well you are still a spring chicken Mandy ! :laughing: :hatched_chick::baby_chick:


(Bill Morgan) #52

Would make me a ‘toy boy’, instead of me, having, ‘a much younger woman’. :rofl:


(Ann Coe) #53

I had a toy boy once … his batteries kept running out ! (groan) :roll_eyes:


(Bill Morgan) #54

Sad to feel so full of despair … at any age…

Aretha Franklin seems to have been around forever… yet only 76… hope she comes through this…

One of my favourites…

This is so sad. She’s an incredible singer. This performance is mesmerising.

The blond woman is Carole King who wrote the song.
