--------------------------------------------------------------------------











And now a singalong version, with special A2K lyrics........




Though we've got to say goodbye for the summer
A2K I promise you this
I'll drink a pint or two, every day in your honour
And then go and piss

Guess it's going to a be hot, dusty summer
With rooms full of emptiness
I'll send a post or two, when I find me a signal
And update you on the mess

We'll be painting in the sunlight
We'll hear the cows everywhere
I'll try to caption the cartoon
But A2K you won't be there

I have got to re-build me......a small farmhouse
So we can drop out and get ourselves fat
But first of all, we have to put a roof on
For me, the wife, dog and cat

Harmonica bit (you can use a comb and paper if you like)

Yes it's going to be a hot, dusty summer
In a building site near to Charolles
I'll send you all my news, when I can find a signal
And then play some boules.....

And then play some boules........

You S.O.B.
Is that how you treat your fans?
Merde.
I hope you drown at the beach in Calais.

@Lordyaswas,
Marvelous!
And so was Panz's grief filled response!


I see I need to write a poem
about how we'll miss yous
while you're off on a roam
away from us, away from us!

Good time while you search
in the land of fine cattle
for a place to perch
with rafters to rattle.

We'll wait to hear about the beer,
about the meals, about the land;
about the people, far and near.
Then hop on back, it would be grand.


Ok, ok, that was corny. So, are you two taking the animals with? I'm picturing it..
Go well.

@Lordyaswas,
I heard these good folks will be your new neighbors. Be sure to go by for a spot of tea.

@Lordyaswas,
Keeping the poetic theme going -

There was a young man called Lordy
Who decided to go abroady
We said "You'll be missed"
He said "I'll be pissed
On all those fine wines of Picordy"


Yes, I do know it's Picardy, but that didn't rhyme. Smile

What did we do to deserve a whole summer of the silent treatment?

@panzade,
Ha!

We are going by chunnel, so unless that floods we will miss Calais altogether. The dog will be with us and hates being left in the car on his own.
As you have to do that on the ferry, we thought we'd do the tunnel so we could all sit in the car and sweat for an hour or so instead.

Joys of being a dog owner, eh?

@Walter Hinteler,
I wish they grew flocks of Aberdeen Angus down there, as I am a steak man myself.

Charollais is great for casserole/bourgignon, but tough as old boots when it comes to steak.

Maybe I should start an import business.....British beef. That would be warmly welcomed by the locals, I'm guessing.

Ah! And on the way back, that's how you re-finance the stay. Clever!

@ossobuco,
"We'll wait to hear about the beer,
about the meals, about the land;
about the people, far and near.
Then hop on back, it would be grand."



The beer is cheap, the food is great
The land is rather hilly
The people count their cows all day
Their bulls all have a willy.

The country lanes, with hedges high
Reminds me of our Devon
With quaint old shops and time stopped still
I think we've found our heaven.

When roof is on, and windows in
The place should feel like home
With a herd of quacking chickens
And pond with garden gnome.

There's an owl up in the rafters
And dormice in the barn
I've got to master roofing
There is a lot to...ahem.... larn.

I pray for sunny weather
Until they fix the drive
'Cos it goes to muddy puddles
When the rainy days arrive.

But there is great distraction
With bread and cheese and sun
Plus good red wine and Tarte Tatin
How will we get things done?

More later, as I am flying about a bit today.

If not, I shall certainly be around for a few days and will pop in when either exhausted or sciving.

Laters..,,,
