Staircase at Millau

The other day, upon a stair
I met a man who wasn't there
He wasn't there again today
I do so wish he'd go away.

Salle de Bain's Avatar You always capture such lovely tonal shades of colour in your photos Fennie...

Have you climbed that staircase? Where does it lead?

Fennie's Avatar Gnome indeed! This isn't Switzerland. But something has been polishing the stairs. No, because I didn't climb the staircase because I wasn't sure where it did lead. I've half an idea it might have led to the sixteenth century and I didn't want to miss my lunch. And there weren't any fairy folk to ask. Maybe they had gone to lunch too. I'd be grateful, Salle, for your assistance in persuading Rosie of the realities of the little people. I fear she is a sceptic. Can't you post some pictures of fairy forts or something. Ireland has such a richness.

Oh, I think the sixteenth century would be delightful. But if you went, you'd probably give everyone smallpox, or something equally distasteful. Best that you hung around for lunch, even if it means admitting you're "out to lunch" instead of at home for lunch. Not to worry: lots of us are "out to lunch" these days.

And yes, I caught sight, briefly, of a couple of "little people," but not for long enough to demand their pot of gold. Which I could most certainly use at this point. Sigh!

Frances's Avatar Fennie, I applaud your willingness to post a photo of a beauty of a staircase.

Hoping that you are now feeling well, and that all those labels are well on their way to the customers who ordered them.

Fennie's Avatar No, Camilla. Don't think so. Always thought it was by that well known writer A.N On.Very Happy
