If there were a mountain a thousand miles high and every thousand years a bird flew over it, just brushing the peak with the tip of its wing, in the course of inconceivable eons the mountain would be worn away. Yet all those ages would not be one second to the length of eternity. (Unknown) Knock the Ďtí off the word canít, and you can. (My mother)

Hi Hamish

Thanks for a lovely welcome.  Vanessa has also been in touch and mentioned a get together in the near future.  We are actually on the D40 between the 2 crossroads, Bez/Naussac and Peyrusse/Naussac. There is only one road on the D40 between the two crossroads, and it is a cul-de cac, leading to us.  Feel free to make a detour if you feel like refreshment after playing squash , or even before playing.  You are obviously much fitter than I.

I have seen most of the films from Pangol's stories and read some of his books (with a struggle, though my French has improved)  I have seen John de Florette/Manon des Sources several times, the end of the story always triggers my emotions.  Much of the story was filmed in Mirabeau in Provence, it is the Mirabeau village fountain which was used in the films.  My husband (French) has family there and we were married in Mirabeau.

I am looking forward tpo becoming involved wit the group, I am sure it's going to be very enjoyable.

Regards

Lesley
