A day at the brocante. A link to find "brocantes" in France: Brocabrac A few basic things about going to the brocante in France: Go as early as you can. Bring a bag to carry your finds. Have cash. Remember to say, "Bonjour" before asking the price. Small 1900s baskets for poker chips. I did not buy them, they were 15 Euros a basket, they were slightly bigger than the palm of my hand. An upright bouquet of flowers. My friend bought it for her shop. Tons of dealers and buyers today. The weather was agreeable. Two men caught my eye as they walked by in harmony. Larger than a basket ball, a buoy that we bought for Cassis. The glass museum. Linens galore. A truck full of demi-johns. Boats, seascapes, Provence... Household wares, that feed the imagination. Please check my online shop for more. Brocante online.

Sacha is filming refugees in France. He wrote on F.B.: "Two little boys sit on the Dunkirk camp's playground. In the background are two of the many box houses families sleep and cook in. Today we met with people from 4 different countries. What struck me was how nice everyone was always, smiling and offering food. @sabs83 #refugees #asylumseekers #survivors #kids #peace #calais #dunkirk #europe#france #refugeeswelcome #help #humanity #love #refugeecrisis #noborders#humanrights #freedom #migrantcrisis #againstracism #noracism #camp#documentary Continue reading

Glad you are okay. Yes, coughing in a public place brings on stares. I was hacking and hacking, but it hurt too much so I stopped.

The manager was a jerk and understood his own ego restaurant needs. Living in the country has its pros and cons. Gina drove amazingly well under the pressure and in unknown landscape. I keep thinking of Aunt Velma. xxxx

Poor farm boy!! I do eat slowly. I have been told that many times. But a bone is a bone is a bone.

Yann said in an emergency dial 18, and write cards, and hope for helpful people to be by your side.

Funny you should say that (one the marshmallows would never last in my purse) because I think walking up that hill dislodged the bone.
