thanksgiving, france.


Today we are celebrating Thanksgiving despite the fact that it is a Monday, and we are in France.  Marie, Alina & I were able to gather all sorts of food stuffs for the occasion....  We even got a jar of homemade cranberries from a very kind woman, because we found out that the only store in this town that sells the berries is closed today!  I made the pumpkin pie & it was pretty experimental, so I hope it comes out alright...  We are in a lovely little village called Angers.  Lace curtains & good spirits for our two days off.  Been drinking tea all day.  Enjoying the rest.

When will you be playing in England again? I saw you at The Green Man festival and became an instant fan. Your Dad is a great guitar player!

Angers is a city, not a village, for french people at least :o)

150 000 souls are there :)

In france, we'd said that a village is no more than 1500.

Having a good year in cities or in french or foreign real villages ;)

Alela, I've seen you on stage at Chalonnes (near Angers).It was a marvellous set.After the show, I've shown you some LP's I've brought:Joni MITCHELL,Laura NYRO,Gene CLARCK,The TALBOT Bros... maybe Sandy DENNY,NewRiders of P.S (I don't remember all).I invite you to come again in Angers. My son organizes "unplugged"set in a small concert hall (excellent sound) and I promise I'll find you a jar, even we're not Thanksgiving !!
Keep on singing, Alela, as your mother told you.Ooooh Oooooh
