The market, mercifully overcast but still hot, featuring a living statue; Mary from Monazels at lunch (no snap of Gracie whom Mary is addressing); the health centre, taking shape; and a nice pair, hoho, grown by Bob.

The medievialists reported this from time to time, always some sort of portent. Cant remember what it signifies.

The simple life can't be beat :)
Further news; Humbert, who many of the artists here know, says hi to everyone. He wrote en route to Chad, where he expects to be for the next few months. Didn't have time to get round to us all and say goodbye.
Further further news; the English Library is relocating to Quillan, by the Pink Palace, not Esperaza as previously reported. Not yet, anyway.

We'd had a tourist day, Rennes le Chateau (Church and all that), Alet les Bains (Abbey, church, coffee at the Jardin buvette place, quick visit to Maria's studio), Rennes les Bains (Will and Marvis pizza) - beautiful weather for it though ennervating at the hottest end of the day, so we siesta'd till dinner.
This is the life.

Here are Andrew and Maggie Baldwin, staying with me this week - an out-of-focus Claudinne, Jean and New Kelly. Another good party. The band were very good. The heat is back in force but the nights are cool and pleasent.
Thought we'd do the vide greniers to help stop noticing the absence of our bunny. Started at Quillan where we squandered to great effect; new bed cover, silk rug, bone carved fish and a frock for when I loose some weight [oh yeah].
The plan was to do St Julia de Bec, St Ferriol and then Autugnac -nice round trip.
If the sweet couple who run the Authentic restro in Esperaza hadn't stopped, we'd still be up a mountain wondering how to change a tire.They lept out and just did it, using madame as a lever to jump on the thing that turns the bolts. So grateful :)
