I`m sorry I haven`t written to you for a couple of weeks but I`m afraid I was laid up in bed for a while Now though I`m up again and flying around as per usual.
I have bought some nice things which I`ll put on my shop in the next few days, some very old pinze-nez and old spectacles which look great on a desk with an old inkstand. I have even sold a few pairs to wear on stage for Am.Dram. fans.
As I haven`t been around a lot in the last few weeks, I thought I would show you some sights that are in my area. There are loads more of course but these are some of my favorites.
This is a lovely plaque which gives thanks to the American soldier who defended the Mayenne
bridge against the Germans on the 5th August 1944. His name was James Mac Rachen and was sacrificed saving the french people.
There are plaques everywhere and a lot of the street names are named after these heroes.
There are numerous Chateaux in the Mayenne area this is just one.
Again many old grave sites here, not as many as in Carnac in Brittany which does make
Stonehenge look insignificant.
One of my favourite museums - Tatin museum - which is full of unbelievable scuptures. Once is not enough to appreciate them.
What can I say - after all that sightseeing - a gorgeous meal in one of my favourite restaurants, which I must say are quite a few.
I prefer the beautiful countryside to the beach, although it isn`t that far away. I don`t like crowds so keep this lovely area of France a secret between us.
Thank you for your support and I wish you all a very happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year.
