Hubby is back in "Jet-Setting Artist" mode. His plane tickets are confirmed. He will fly away next Monday, on the pretext, or out of necessity; depending on one's point of view, that he must leave himself plenty of time to prepare for his next Art Show which opens June 20th. in Mende, France.
I concede that it will be a great show; a combined exhibition of watercolours, by hubby, and photographs, by a fabulous landscape photographer J-F Salles; both of whom love the bucolic and unspoiled countryside that is Lozere.
But here's the rub. This is a region where hubby spent a few summers when he was a boy. This photo shows you his cohorts, whom he has rediscovered since we bought and renovated an old cow-barn in the region. These "Bad Boys" rampaged around together when they were all fourteen and fifteen. Not a milkmaid was spared their attentions, from what I have heard, and they are proud and feisty and looking to get into more scrapes I am sure; totally ignoring the fact that sixty years have gone by.
I shall stay here and run our "bread and butter" business, fielding international phone calls about
My work time is much more efficient when I am alone and not bound to interrupt my train of thought because the Holy hour for eating has come around once again.
I shall arrange to treat myself to horse-riding mid-week, with no recriminations, for who needs to know but me and the horse? I'll hang out with friends, without having to translate for anyone and I will surely have more Blog-time!
Whatever the opposite of Jet-Set might be, it works for me!
