MRS. MARGARET BEAUMONT'S GARDEN

Today is 30th. November. In the past month Ruth has written 50 000+ words of her novel, with the working title as above. It's (inter alia) the story of 3 women of different generations living (and dying) among the politics and war of southern Africa over a 30-year period.

The book is a wilful teenager at the moment. When it grows to adulthood it will be an enthralling read.

What a woman Ruth is!

THE START OF THE SKIING SEASON

 Oh, no, it isn't!

REHEARSAL

Here are some shots taken of the Krama Singers' last rehearsal before our performance on the 6th. July in Labatut church. Who would then have foreseen our triumph on the night?
 
 
Actually Ruth took some photos and a video of our performance but I somehow seem to have deleted them. Shame!
 


CLEANING THE MOUNTAIN II

When I published "Cleaning the Mountain" some months ago I said that I wished I had had a camera with me. Well, a short time later I and Ruth went for a walk in the Pyrenees on part of the route at Luz Ardiden that I had helped to clean and we took a camera with us. These are the result. We particularly liked the sheep hiding under the digger out of the sun's heat. And on the way back, we did see some marmottes.
 
Oh! This season's ski discount card was actually paid for as a reward for cleaning the mountain. (See Part I)
 







HAPPY DAYS


A few shots of a some months ago to remind us what summer was like. (Not that it's that different now!)
