Frenchies Redux

I got an email yesterday from Simon, the 21 year old son of Dennis and Therese, who was visiting Seattle a few weeks back as his father and his father's partner did professional consultation with local fetal alcohol syndrome guru Ann Streissguth. He sent me some photos and an update on their whirlwind tour of the western United States and Canada. Unfortunately Carole is not pictured here, as they had given her their cameras and forced her to keep taking group photos until they got a good one. So here's the good one. This was taken at Ann's son's house during their Fourth of July party. I'm looking forward to the rest of their shots, especially the one of Simon proving that he could pick me up (outside O'Shea's Tavern, after having several pints inside.) And perhaps there'll be a good shot of Dennis and Therese dancing at the New Orleans nightclub.

From left to right: Anne, Simon, Dennis, Therese, Thierry and John

What a lovely shot...where does he live I wonder, with such a sublime outdoor environ?

Your post and link brought to mind recollections of a student of mine at the Independent Progress Center in Redmond back in 1989-1990. He was FAS (documented thru UW)and had a twin brother confined to Western State, but this kid (a really gifted drummer)at our school was in foster care with an amazingly astute and caring couple and he made huge strides while he was there. I wonder where he is today...he must be 31 years old by now.

Anyway, it appears you are enjoying a frolicking summer...are there no photos of you acutally taking dives into Lake WA? Let your blog mates post the numbers.

Was Simon trying to pick you up physically or socially outside O'Shea's? That wasn't clear in your telling, but makes a huge difference in the story!

The house was located near the area Genevieve lives. He was trying to pick me up literally, not figuratively... and there are no photos of johnbai diving. Nor should there be.
