Preuilly Pool Opens Tomorrow


All going well with the annual maintenance, the swimming pool in Preuilly sur Claise should open tomorrow at 10:30 am. I'll be there.

It will be open on the weekends in June, then every day except Thursdays in July and August.

Tuesday morning when I popped down there to check all was well, the pool was full of water and the local plumbers were in checking the big community pellet burner (Fr. chaudière) which heats it.

They were both men I knew and who have worked on our house. Pascal has appeared on the blog a number of times and remembers well supporting our newly installed Italian custom made sink with a Traction Avant jack. The other guy, whose name I can't remember, is the one who did the gas connection for Big Berta.

I mentioned I had a photo of Pascal sitting on the floor doing  some braising, and his colleague promptly whipped out his phone and said 'Yes but do you have a photo of him looking like that?!' , showing me an image of Pascal wearing a house coat and bonnet and striking an attitude. When I enquired why Pascal had been dressed like that he was slightly sheepish and informed me that it was just a bit of workplace silliness...
