Life meets theatre.
The two cow girls in the field across the lane look up as we return home. They seem absolutely fine . The old farmers early morning supply of hay has done the trick.
While we've been away it's been windy . Fallen branches littering the lawn . A panel on the driveway gates blown down. Madame Bay clasps her hands to her chest as if praying and tells us , with only a hint of exaggeration, the gusts were at least a hundred and fifty kilometres an hour. '' We feared for our lives M'Ongoose. We feared for our lives " . Then, to make sure we've understood the full enormity of what has happened, she makes a whistling noise and waves her arms from side to side. Life meets theatre - France profonde style. " My goodness. How frightening for you " says ' the font ' . Madame Bay nods silently.

Dear ANGUS: Thought you might like to know - your much-anticipated Chez Panisse in Berkeley had a fire this morning. They are canceling all reservations and bookings through March 23, with more updates to come. I just read about it, here on the Westcoast of Canada, and thought you should know. Welcome home! We are all thrilled about your new puppies BOB and SOPHIE. Cannot wait for your return from California........when the fun will begin! Best regards, and sorry about the news about the restaurant. Here it is:ReplyDelete
Sometimes you have to resort to mime when talking to 'foreigners'. Madame Bay just wanted to be sure you got the message.ReplyDelete
XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy
And I ask myself who is paying the old farmer to put the hay out every morning. Those cows are as fortunate as Bob and Sophie.ReplyDelete
Oh my, the two cow girls are looking really well,,,,makes my heart very happy.ReplyDelete
Madame Bay would do well to be an actress, I could just see her accepting her (French equivalent) SAG award for a great movie performance.
Now to find a repair man to fix the gate, who will actually show up when he says he will....smile.
Madame Bay's story telling ability is as vivid as her wardrobe.ReplyDelete
Home sweet home.ReplyDelete
Maybe Madam Bay should get a role on the next series of Downton Abbey. As a friend of the Shirley McLaine character.ReplyDelete
No place like home - especially when waiting for puppies and watching the cows thrive.ReplyDelete
I am in the camp waiting to hear what Madame Bay thinks of Sophie and Bob! I'm sure it will be a memorable meeting!ReplyDelete
Is it next week that you are going back to see the sweet fur babies? You are planning on taking pictures to share with when you get home :) that is a smile for yes.ReplyDelete
Ano snow at leastReplyDelete
If a family has pets, it has to make special arrangements for them before leaving for a family holiday. In comparison to traditional gate systems, the automatic driveway gates are more effective in protecting the kids and pet animals.ReplyDelete
