(no subject)

Took till nearly the end of August for me to register that there are no nightly fireworks because there is no Ex(hibition) this year which means there will be no air show either, which last I am grateful for.

Weather has gone warm and muggy again after that brief and intermittent cool down last week. Autumn will come eventually, but meanwhile my joints hate me.

Jean de Florette is all about brutal murderous peasants, so I went searching for something more congenial and am now reading Arsène Lupin. His vocabulary is, oddly, more obscure than JdF's in spite of the latter's all landscape all the time.
