This confirms my suspicion that all French men are poofs. They wear silly hats, do their own shopping, then stand around nattering like women Smile

Nice sharp BW on this shot Jo. Witty? .... mais oui.

Great candid Jo.

They were clearly waiting and hoping for THIS to happen ;o)

Seems a bit too sharp to me Jo (but commented that on the previous photo as well, so beginning to believe it's rather my screen than the photos), but it's a funny little scene.

Allez, salut maintenant!

You don't see many French men wearing berets these days. I like the contrast between ancient (berets) and modern (supermarket trolleys) in this shot. Further evidence of the destruction of traditional French culture is that neither of them have a Gauloise fag in their mouth. C'est triste, n'est pas?

Well, living in the Maritimes I've always known that old men are far worse gossip's than old women! Gotta do something when you can't fish!
