You may be shocked to hear that the sun doesn't always shine here in Périgord, and unfortunately we are having several days of rain just when we really needed sunshine.
So, what is a chap to do?
Well the boys go off on their bikes or play Ping Pong, I retreat to my crossword book, Lady Magnon reads novels, and Kimbo goes off shopping for fine wines, Oysters, and other delights; of course.
We are doing our best to ensure the future of the oystermen of Oléron, the vignerons of Epernay, and the Goose breeders of just about everywhere.
Someone has to do it, and, anyway, what else could we do; our weather has been dreadful.
