The children from the primary school are given a start of the school day concert in the church. After that it's the turn of the folk from the Special Needs home. Difficult to say who enjoys it more. At each there is an unscripted and enthusiastic element of audience participation.
The young musicians may play in larger venues. They may play in venues that are more stylish and more sophisticated ( and hopefully pay better ). However, they will rarely play in a place where their music generates such simple joy .
Afterwards, the Salle des Fetes is opened so the second concert goers can have a glass of orange juice. Angus can't help but think everything has been set out with practicality in mind.
The male PON waits for their return. He is beginning to enjoy having a larger flock.
Bob spends the afternoon sitting on his stump seat, waiting. His disappointment is tangible. PONs, after initial reticence, are sociable dogs.
Sophie adopts an altogether more relaxed approach to herding.
So passes another day in deepest, deepest France profonde.
A fine lady. RIP. : http://www.theguardian.com/politics/video/2016/jun/16/labour-mp-jo-cox-maiden-speech-parliament-video
