Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud.
No clambering on the furniture. Bob's pretty much got the idea. You can make up your own mind about Sophie.
We stop off at the Ascension Day market. The greengrocer's wife is setting out a tray of Sweet Potatoes . Here in deepest France profonde you rarely see anything American for sale. She's written out a sign 'Patate Douce des USA'. What the locals will think of this exotic import remains to be seen. At the equivalent of $2.90 a pound she's had no takers. I'm not sure it's a good idea to slice them in half. Bob and Sophie each get given a green bean. An act of kindness too unimportant to be recorded in a diary but too important to be completely forgotten.
