Praise the bridge that carried you over.
For Bob and Sophie a day for playing ball and chasing blackbirds . In the afternoon Bob sits on his stump seat watching passing pilgrims and wishing the villagers would barbecue some more sausages.
On the motorway a long convoy of riot police returning to their barracks. They've been out in Toulouse to deal with the rioting after Algeria lost their World Cup match. All the vans have little chimneys on the roof. Why ?
A lost dog poster on the town hall notice board. It's been put up by the retired couple in the modern house at the edge of the commune. The dog's been lost for more than a month now. The fear is that it's been stolen for medical experimentation. An all to frequent occurrence. Not knowing if its alive, kidnapped or ín pain must be awful.
'The font' returns from a committee meeting of the Beautiful Bye Ways Committee. This year the pottery fair will be a one day event. After twelve months of neglect a rather alarming crack now runs down the front of the kiln. The committee don't think this will interfere with it being fired up. 'The font' is less sure.
