It's an ill wind .....
A bit of excitement in the night. Sophie manages to get into the library. The door closes behind her. The library is very dark and she can't get out. At 3:09 Sophie alerts the world to her predicament. Moments later Bob hurtles into the bedroom to let me know his sister is in need of assistance. Shortly after the family diva records her gratitude at being rescued by turning on her back, waving her legs in the air and screaming in delight.
The demonstrators are still out and about. We've discovered that on these cold mornings they don't start blocking the roads or setting fire to old tractor tyres until 8:00 am.
The Police are on one side of the road ( there are also CRS riot police but I opt not to take a picture of them ) while the protesters gather on the other side by the roundabout. The protesters have just started to paint rude slogans about Monsieur Macron on the motorway slip road as we drive by.
Another two croissant morning. The bakers business is way down because of the blockade just along the road. This mornings batch isn't selling. The PONs get double curly helpings. It's an ill wind .....
To cheer themselves up on this quiet morning the bakery staff have put up the Christmas tree.
A weathered steel house in Colorado. In two minds about the steel. Looks good but you wouldn't want to sit on it in a Colorado summer: http://projects.archiexpo.com/project-257697.html?token=c8cf3c6149901fa63849c28ec45749292a8720a8#utm_medium=email&utm_source=insight&utm_campaign=50-architectural-projects-20-11-2018&utm_content=photo&utm_term=PROJECT_highlight
