French Country

My life in France is not what I expected.




A lot of what I do over here is exorcise demons. What may look to you like an unassembled Weber grill is, to me, rewriting history. My family had enough money for a Weber grill. Let’s face it, even if you couldn’t afford a stove, you could afford a Weber. But I didn’t have the kind of childhood where my parents could stand each other enough long enough to plan the barbecue, so it never happened. In college I had a baby Weber but somehow it just wasn’t the same. Now, here in France, I have a full-on Weber grill, bought at the local garden store no less. I will assemble it. I will cook one thing on it. I will be happy. One more demon, gone. That’s all it takes.

  1. We will look forward to the descriptions of the wonderful meals prepared al fresco on the weber!

    Apologies for any typographical errors – sent from a small mobile device.



  2. Thanks, Gerard. Now I have to get that thing put together. Last week it was raining. Today it’s sunny and 32, which I think is in the 90s, and I’m thanking the stars I didn’t buy in the south of France, where I hear the temperature will hit 40. The grill and the deli will be seeing a lot of action.


  3. Hi
    am in south of france
    Is 38 at present
    The invalid and I are putting up terrace shading


  4. When you guys get done, come over here! I could use some help. My terrace shadecloth has completely rotted. I am afraid to open the awning. The way I am going, I’ll probably get around to replacing it just before I sell the house.


  5. SELL!

    NO don’t ….if we can stick it out so can you
    anyway think how le petit chien would be


  6. Sorry
    meant to say how confused petit chien would be
    sorry o v small mobile screen and heat and wine scrambling the brain


  7. No worries. The big house, the one under construction, that’s a keeper. But seriously, you didn’t think I was living there, did you? I see a new post coming on, one that will show the floor all ripped up. The place where I actually live is habitable. Patio — oh, excuse me, terrace, now that I’m in France — Weber, working kitchen and bathrooms, furniture: really it’s all set up. The thing is, I get bored with “all set up.” So I don’t know, maybe I’ll keep it as a rental. I haven’t really decided.
