Lucy has a new bike, bought at a vide grenier (car boot sale, literally ‘empty attic’).

The local sausage is called Toulousain and it comes in continuous lengths. You cook it in a spiral.

When you collect eggs from hens in a barnyard, they come in different sizes. [Note the archaic microwave in the background.]

    Otto is living the boyhood dream there. Operating a real excavator while wearing your dinosaur pajamas.

    I was so focussed on the digger I didn’t realise he was in pyjamas!
