Wow, Preuilly is infinitely more interesting than my little bled.

I just love those gates. If they were mine, the dilemma would be: leave them as they are or attack them with a wire brush an hammerite paint. Wish we had a place suitable for a significant gate statement.

This gate is really beautiful. It makes me think of what could have been the gate of Sleeping Beauty's castle before Prince Charming dropped by.

Dedene: surely not!!

Jean: If they were mine, the gates would stay the same, I think.

CHM: Miss Havisham is the name that sprang to mind immediately I saw the gates!

Hi Simon & Susan,
It looks like there is a variety of activities going on this month in Preuilly.
I tend to think of the "lotos" first, when I think of the "canton". They like to do lotos in the countryside ! I see the posters up each time we go to the area & the anouncements in the Nouvelle République.

Have you & Simon already tried playing Loto ??

Hubby & I will be over in late March in Touraine.
We are looking forward to it !

We haven't done Loto yet. Last time I played bingo was at a casino in Puerto Varas in Chile.

Huge fun can be had playing bingo in a language you don't speak after a bottle or two of wine. Even though I had a groups of ladies of a certain age (we were all on the same tour, I was the only non-spanish speaking person) "helping" me, I didn't win anything :¬(
