Above is Andree being surprised in some way by our mayor, Georges Reverte - very good of him to come especially after having to turn down the band the night before. He enjoyed them and was sweet about having to curtail the music, had no problem about last night. Its all about neighbours and their odd desire to sleep :)

Alas, at some point in the evening Yuseff, the boss there, got a text from the mayor - who lives next door....after that the band went acoustic
There was a certain amount of excitement when the bit that held the drums together went AWOL but the drummer Mr Tom (as opposed to my nephew, the singer Tom) improvised quite brilliantly. Astonishingly good.
People danced and wiggled their bottoms
We're in La Depeche and l'Independent

Photographed this off the tele; we have made Esperaza TV!!!! (channel 70 in these parts) Mostly it broadcasts the school dinners. Which are brilliant BTW.
and here is my neighbour Michel standing for election in the regional round... as he says, the roots of democracy.
Chez nous we are waiting for my nephew and his band who are arriving from Paris, maybe to play at the Artists a Suivre - their arrangements are at best ramshackle but hoping to see them :)
My nephew Tom is bringing his band here, so I know they are playing in Paris at the moment and not Manchester. Any comment from me will be trite but in Esperaza this morning everyone I spoke to expressed concerns for Manchester and England; very sweet.
