Have the fruit and vegetable sections at the supermarket suddenly become more colourful ?
Angus has to ask 'The Font' what the red beans are.
Even the lettuces look festive.
The Old Farmer has put up two new strings of lights. A swathe ( blue and yellow ) now runs from the cottage across his courtyard to the garage. A second set ( red and orange ) have been added to the garage gutters. For good measure a security light has also been added to the garage door. The Rickety Old Farmhouse must look very staid when compared with this vision of supercharged cheerfulness.
The roofers have finished work on the Salle des Fetes. Voting in the second round of the regional elections can take place, in the dry, on Sunday. The village has always voted Socialist. Last Sunday 61 of the 67 souls on the electoral register voted in the first round. 32 voted for the extreme right Front Nationale.
Our builders finish. They don't clear up afterwards. What a surprise. Cement dust and PONs. Wonderful.
