C'est triste mais c'est vrai


Hard headed Flea-readers may doubt my convictions regarding all things French as I bring France Appreciation Week @ The Flea to an early close. Au contraire. If anything, my love of France could fill a* book.** For example, how to do justice to Coco Chanel's Little Black Dress in the space of a regularly updated website with dated entries such as this "blog"? Non.

True fact: Pictured above is the flag of France during the Monarchy. Yes, a white flag for the king of France. Paris was a red and blue, hence the tricolour flag since the Revolution. So sayeth the internets and much to good to fact check.

Light posting and tweating for several days. An my apologies for any missed correspondence.

* Water-tight.
** Should the book prove to have been hollowed out after the fashion of those books one sees in films; the ones used to conceal a flask of whiskey, a Derringer or perhaps clues to the existence of the Matrix.

How many gears on a French Army tank ? 6.

5 reverse and 1 forward in case of an attack from the rear.

FOR SALE: 100,000 French Army rifles.

Only dropped once.
