Paris – The Eiffel Tower

Surgery today.

Just a quick note to say thank you for all your comments recently and for thinking of me and my silly old shoulder. I’m heading into surgery this morning for the repair so I’ll probably be away from here for a few days. I have posts scheduled to go up every second day with my…
