Unknown neighbours; Lot-et-Garonne
I love these short films.This one may amuse you.
Here are some very typical old folks from 'down the road' (Lot et Garonne, 47). I rather like the old boy; he's thoroughly pissed-off with everything! Beware; early in the video it shows Madame killing a Chicken (1 min 50-ish), you may like to look away.
People such as these are everywhere hereabouts; it's simply how they are. I've spent the last 45 years in their company, and I can assure you they are some of the nicest, most generous, and helpful, people you could ever wish to meet.
Madame's smile says it all. She reminds me of my vigneronne.
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 50 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live between an ancient cottage in a tiny village in perfectly tranquil French countryside, and a bijou townhouse in Brighton UK. In France we have plenty of fruit trees, all situated amongst a view that takes the breath away, in the UK we have a handkerchief sized patio. 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!
