There is a sense of a peaceful country village in this week’s picture from Sandra.
A place where everyone knows each other and rumours and gossip flourish;
well, everyone wants to know all about you, especially if you have secrets to share.

Village Hay and Bread
Marcel drives his tractor through the village, although there are shorter ways to his farm. He stops at the Boulangerie, and it takes ages to collect his bread.
Across the street, Annette rearranges the books in the window of the Librairie, all the time watching for Marcel.
‘Stop it,’ Carole shouts from the till, and then joins her.
‘He’s taking his time.’ Annette checks her watch.
‘Mary-Anne is probably busy with a bun in the oven.’ Carole laughs.
‘Don’t! She’s happily married.’
‘And, she has loved both brothers.’
Marcel appeared; Annette waved.
‘Yesterday, Jacques bought a shotgun,’ said Carole.
