Monday 09 10 2023 This was the very tasty meal that I missed and these are my new banisters, so I’m not living dangerously any more!


Sunday 24. 09. 2023 My friend Chris Watson took this great picture from the roof of the National Gallery.

The Round Table

Friday 15. 09. 2023 Today we discussed Sir Gawain and the Green Knight! This is what makes Franglais so special.

Franglais Extra

Friday 08. 09. 2023 Had a great Franglais meeting at the Charleston and then we all went on to Philippe’s for a very tasty pot-luck lunch. A mixture of Venezualan, Breton and French dishes. Extraordinaire!

Art Sale

Thursday 07. 09. 2023 I have some small paintings for sale at Mimos’Art on the rue René Gosse here in Clermont. It will be interesting to see what sells.

Chez moi

Sunday 27. 08. 2023 Got home last night around 8. It was the Fête d’Eté so we went downtown after dinner. A great fête with a very good rock band. Cooler here than TO.

Let’s Dance

Tuesday 15. 08. 2023 This was Jason’s birthday present to me. We went this evening. It was a great show and I knew all the songs!

My 82nd Birthday was spent at Clive’s cottage with the family.

Happy Birthday Grandad
This year has been hard but I’ve been so grateful to not only to have you in my life but in person with me, from going out to breakfast, to our dinners, whether at Nana’s house or at ours, your conversations have always kept my mind at ease. The conversations I have had with you have been stimulating to say the least. I didn’t know how much I needed not only a grandad but a Peter in my life, not just as a grandfather. I feel as if our conversations have molded my views on the world from art to human rights. I feel so grateful and full of love and life to have you in my life.

I will forever make funny faces at you during dinner and giggle at your jokes. And I will forever appreciate everything you have done for me as well as taught me.

Happy Birthday Old Fart
I love you so much

96 and still going strong

Had a great visit yesterday to Charis and Graham Cotter with Laurie and Erich. Graham is an amazing character full of stimulating conversation. He is 96! His house is full of books and paintings.
