Sorry; No Fascinating Posting Today.
JE SUIS EN GRÈVE.
I've been looking for a totally useless, non-productive, self-destructive cause to support; and I think I've found one.
During this my one day strike (in sympathy with all UK Trades union members), I shall stay at home (I always do on Wednesdays), deprive the art world of any 30th November Cro genius, and if possible make a bloody nuisance of myself.
St Jude will be my hero for the day (he's the patron saint of lost causes), I shall refuse to walk the dog (unless he gives me those 'please daddy can we go for walkies' eyes), and I shall paint two large banners; one saying 'Down Wiv Everyfing', the other saying 'Up Yors' (both amusingly misspelled banners will be on sale on Thursday as genuine souvenirs).
I had intended to pitch a tent outside my front door for the day, but I think someone at St Paul's must have half-inched it.
If I can find it, I'll wear my red 'Junior Che Guevara Club' T shirt, and draw a 'Hammer and Sickle' on my beret.
I was hoping that Lady Magnon would have joined me in my day's protest, but she just scoffed and said I should 'bugger off and live in North Korea'.... Charming.... I'm not replying to her; silence is an important part of my STRIKE.

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 (except the obdurate and dictatorial) is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 46 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), plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away; we also have a Border Collie called Billy. 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!
