A very dark Friday

Balloons in the colors of the French flag in front of the Eiffel Tower

On Wednesday we made an impulse purchase. We now have a beautifully marked Ginger and White Kitten. About  15 minutes after we got him home we had a call from London. A family emergency. We have all had them. We hurredly packed and set off immediately for the 200 mile trek.

This post was going to be light hearted. All about our new found friend who travels well in the campervan and how we are going to train him to accompany us as we move around the country. That  will come but events in one of our favourite holiday destinantions overtook us and I feel compelled to comment on the tragic , murderous horror in France. Again.


This man, is of course, John Lennon. He met a violent end himself and I wonder what comments he would have made about the current violence if he had lived. I visualise him on a Saturday night “chat show”, annoying all the politicians and telling some truths. I think that he would have the bravery to put into words what so many of us feel. Please watch the following on You Tube and listen and try to understand the lyrics. I think of all my friends from Chantilly and Senlis at just one of my previous employers. A family run, French oil company. I just hope none of them was in Paris last night.
