So what’s going on with you? Today was the last day of the French Open and Stella and I were out the door at 6am this morning and high tailed it to get back from our walk by 7am. Nadal was playing Ferrer, so I really expected Nadal to win. Which is also his 8th French Open Championship! Broke a record. It was the first time that Ferrer got into a final at a grand slam. Congrats to both of you, you both are champions!
But before I leave I must tell you the whole story…………….

Anti same-sex marriage activists protest during the 2013 French tennis Open final match at the Roland Garros stadium in Paris on June 9, 2013.
About two weeks ago, France's first same-sex wedding was broadcast live on television. The politically charged ceremony was held under tight police surveillance -- a stark reminder of the months of bruising opposition to the new same-sex marriage law that French lawmakers passed earlier this month. Several rallies involving thousands of protesters in Paris failed to prevent the law's passage.
Police had to use tear gas to scare away a small group of protesters who gathered near the ceremony.
Crazy people in this crazy world……………..Love is the answer! Take care and have a good one……………:)
