Tuesday is my shopping day. I always set off from home before it's totally light, in order to be at my nearby supermarket (Leclerc) by 8.30 am opening time.
Yesterday morning I didn't notice that an escapee horse from next door had dragged some invisible green plastic coated Sheep wire into the track, which I subsequently drove over and snagged beneath the car. It took me ages to untangle it. Plenty of hoof prints and poo all over the garden, including up at the barn. Luckily only a small amount of damage to our young fruit trees. No word of apology.
Then en route I came across the above; some poor soul had probably hit a patch of black ice and slid into the arms of a roadside Walnut tree. If the tree hadn't been there, he or she would probably have ended up on his or her head.
I had planned to buy foie gras yesterday for my Paté making, but there wasn't any. My big Charcuterie day has therefore had to be put back for a while. More anon.
