The mayor?

2008 - The village of Turquant.

Could this handsome fellow be the mayor of Turquant? We noticed this strange creature sitting by the front door of the village hall while we were having our aperitif on the small terrace of l'Hélianthe.

It's a clever arrangement of flower pots with a bush growing out of the head. The tri-coloured sash could indicate that this is the mayor or another village official. What do yo think? Is this a prank, the work of a great creative mind or an inventive municipal gardener?

Bonjour Martine,
Can't post on Safari.

Right now I'm on Firefox instead of Safari to see if there is any difference with the posting. I'll try not to go through "Preview" and see what happens. I'm not sure if having a Mac makes any difference.

Back on Safari.

That's what I tried to say when on Firefox. But COULDN'T post.
It seems to be a vicious circle.

Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Too complicated!

chm: I'm really sorry to read this. I'm afraid I can't help you :((! Apparently your Mac and my PC are not the best of friends!
Does this mean that your giving up commenting all together? I hope not. Martine

chm: of course I meant : ... 'you're giving up' ... instead of 'your giving up'. Sorry !!

Hello Martine,
Set ups of blogs whose bloggers are located in France look mostly the same, but are quite different from yours.
The process to post a comment is mostly the same also.

Do you think their blogs are French and yours is Belgian? Which means quite different?

I'll try posting this and might give up altogether if it doesn't work. Sorry if that happens.

The problem is the verification word. It doesn't appear with the box "Post a comment" as it does with the French blogs.

I had to click TWICE the Preview to get that verification word without which you cannot post!?!?!? That isn't right!
