It’s been a windy weekend. But Flat Richie sat it out over on the continent, well looked after and entertained by Squirrel who has hosted him for the last week. Befitting for Flat Richie’s last holiday before he returns to me, Squirrel pulled out all the stops and took him on a big excursion. She wrote it all up for us to enjoy, too. I have tried my best at translating the French original and hope Google Translate has not got it completely wrong. There is a fantastic crop of images to go with the log, and I will try my best to put them into the right places in Squirrel’s report:
FR arrived on Monday February 3, 2020 in the morning (too bad, I watched TS at home), in the arms of our usual postman, directly at the pharmacy. This man had merit because the Sarthe river was on the road.
On Monday evening I opened the package and I quickly chose, without hesitation, 3 excellent gifts:
– the tea bags (Welsh) yum yum, thank you from my husband, and an image of Francis Dolarhyde alias Red Dragon pasted on it (great for keeping the page in the UV book).
– a very nice cotton bag (organic!) from Zagreb, intended for shopping at the bio co-op)
– a wooden box with a brooch of yellow roses, engraved with the inscriptions: Gaskell’s Jewelers Helston – “I found it in the hedgerow.” Not only am I addicted to brooches but also to N / S …
Well done my friends, very good choices.
Wednesday I worked.
Thursday I went to the 24 Hours of Le Mans museum.
– two Citroën 2 cheveaux cars which have been around the world. Jacques Séguéla and J.C Baudot

Sunday I took pictures inside and outside
No visits due to storm Ciara.
Wow – what a stop. I would imagine that a visit to the car racing museum in Le Mans was a massive highlight for Flat Richie. A great report, Squirrel, thank you for all your efforts. It is so lovely that you actually gave us a glimpse of the place where you live and took so many pictures of Flat Richie everywhere. Hehe, did you get a few funny looks in the museum for posing a book in front of all those exhibits?
As for the gifts – oooh, that brooch and box sound fabulous. What a lovely idea!
So, once again – many thanks for such a detailed, illustrated report, Squirrel. I loved reading it, and I am glad that you had such fun with Flat Richie. Stay safe in the storm for now – there may be more on its way to you.
