Here there are 9 or 10 musical events all going on at the same time, outside my window is a stage for groups that are going to sing and play French chansons. Thank goodness for that, and I hope there is no last minute change in plan. Last year I had the right to listen to "rap" stuff, up to 0300hrs - quite a challenge, I can tell you. Not even the downpour put them off - I did try and suggest that the lightning bolts may flash into the electrical works, up the cables, to the microphones, and from there spring over into the gold and silver and platinum teeth fillings of the unfortunate young people. Wishful thinking on my part, and they couldn't hear my warning over the racket!
At least the rain had come, and I hope it will be the same this year.
At the moment, the Town Drum club/society is warming up. Where is the rain?
What village wants or needs a Drum Society?
Anyway, I'm listening to that and watching the u20 football world cup finals live/en direct at the same time. The Brits don't even know it's happening, 'cos their team didn't qualify! Same for the Dutch, I think, but it is qute amusing, and fills in the time up to the last group matches in the Confederation Cup later on this evening. I've no time for "Fete de la Musique" you see.
Amusing are the "young" boys (u20) only in the sense that I've just seen the referee doing "like in real life" playing Dad, and collecting all the waterbottles thrown around the place by the kids, and arranging them neatly in a corner of the goal.
Good lordy, these are maybe young people, but they know how to earn a couple of million a week!
Doesn't matter - in certain things, Mum and Dad have to sort it out. Collecting waterbottles, washing and ironing clothes/dishes/ etc etc. Youngster may have a couple of million a week, but goody - there is still the referee to replace mum and dad!! Dad whistles, but
|Mum's the REFEREE!|
|Dad helps out|
