A diverse offering twixt the interesting, the unusual, and the amusing.

Wills and Kellogg hadn't been to this particular fête before, and they loved it (even thought Wills is a veggie). The tables were all lined up outside the small medieval church, a dreadful mobile disco blasted 'Viva Espania' every few minutes, and enough grilled lamb cutlets were served to feed several armies.
We didn't stay for the dancing as everyone was tired and we had to get up early the following morning for our own village 'Vide Grenier' (Boot sale). Photos later maybe.
I apologise for the quality of the pix... It was one of those nights!..... And, no; I didn't buy anything at the 'Vide Grenier'.
We went with friends to the Scallop festival in Whitianga; a charming
seaside town in the Coromandal District.
Had a great time...5000 people, lots of wine...

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 45 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), a Border Collie/Black Lab' cross called Bok, a cat called Freddie, plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
