1, 2, 3 … y ‘en a un de trop.

C’est pas toi, c’est l’autre.

1,2,3 c’était mieux à deux

les yeux dans les yeux…

mais pas deux sans trois,

Je  veux  vivre sans toi.

1,2,3 mon soleil était toi

Je suis perdue.

3, 2, 1 c’est trois fois mieux toute seule

sans compte à regler

Et puis de deux perdus

Dix de retrouvés

1,2,3…..3,2,1.

The Boathouse

The idyllic days spent down at the boathouse,

preparing the rigging,

checking the sails,

pottering about.

THE GATE HOUSE

He rarely left the Gate house,

preferring the Rolls, the Bentley, the Daimler to the Family.

He only barely put up with their presence

while chauffeuring them around the country side.

So naturally he quickly became the prime suspect…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

BIRD HOUSE

The quail quietly tiptoed in and made herself at home.

Squatter’s rights she then declared.

And just like that, she expropriated his inheritance,

leaving him in exile on  St. Helena.
