Cowart's Common Room
YOOHOOO!!! Did you miss me darlings ?

The Loufoque household has been away for a glorious sun filled brief but busy holiday, keeping Middle and youngest occupied whilst eldest is swanning about Italy in the school hols.

We have, and I promise you I am not joking ,over the last 3 days witnessed An amazing performance of theatre at Versaille featuring several muskateers, and a band of gypsies on horseback from the Carmargue. Then a spot of rape and pillaging by visiiting vikings with their longboats, enough doves released to keep Faith happy for ever, no tto mention vultuyres buzzards eagles adn somthign called a serpent bir din French adn goodness knows what in Englsih. The over throw of the vile English invaders by a band of brave French knights in armour, That was a bit toucha dn go for a while. Several christians being fed to the lions in the Colliseum and much much more. For those who may scoff I have loads of photographs to prove it so will bore you rigid in due course with a blog.

To top it all though, Jacko and I nearly caused a nasty traffic accident when we were forced to perform an emergency stop today in order to photograph this genuine road sign on our way home!!!

So her we are home again and I bet you never even noticed we had been away had you? Ha! what have you lot been up to then? Anything exciting?

Fennie's Avatar And all parts played by the inhabitants of the Loufoque-o-sphere. Mde Grognonne, Loic, Jacques - in and out of drag. This will be a blog exotique, no doubt - an oeuvre worthy of Alexandre Dumas (whose final novel I learned the other day has just been discovered lying in a trunk). I will await it with trepidation and baited breath.

Unpeuloufoque's Avatar Ha how come I never find undiscovered works of art in my trunks? Fennie had dinner in Clisson last night and thought of you!!

Jackofall's Avatar How on earth did the elephant breathe, Fenny?Shocked

Having done the boring homework, which proved to be far from boring, I know what you lot have been up to, and why we, deservedly, now have a Head Girl - amen to all that and let gone bys be gone by.

LittleBrownDog's Avatar Hi there UPL & Jackofall - hope you all had a glorious holiday and were none-too put out by the emergency stop.

OF COURSE we missed you!! And looking forward to hearing all about what you've been up to (missing nothing out, of course!)


Posted by: LittleBrownDog on 25th Apr 2008 at 07:58PM

Of course you were missed! Hope the vikings didn't upset the Breton sardine fleet!

Posted by: HimalayanBlue on 25th Apr 2008 at 09:17PM

Withy Brook's Avatar You were lucky to be away, upl and Jacko. Wish we had been with you!

Milla's Avatar I didn't miss you for one second because, most seriously, you seemed to be here!! Aaargh. I mean, you HAD been properly absent, maybe pretending to make tiles ??? Twisted EvilBlink and then you WERE here and now you're saying you WEREN'T?? I mean we have been most fearfully busy with dog choices and being caring and stuff and the weeks do fly by once you hit 25 (sigh) but have you really been, like, PROPERLY AWAY??

Posted by: Milla on 25th Apr 2008 at 09:34PM

Unpeuloufoque's Avatar No dear I knew dutifully reading thru postings on PC front page..well as far down as I had energy before washing dirty clothes and emptying suitcases beckoned ..was a bad mistake...and I have really and truelly been preoperly away..have car full of sand, pebbles and shells to prove it plus 2 very tired bosy with sunburnt noses to give as evidence. Oh and masses of photos!!

Posted by: Unpeuloufoque on 25th Apr 2008 at 09:39PM

Jackofall's Avatar Do you seriously think, Milla, if we HAD been here, we would NOT have attempted our own distinct and separate efforts at oil-throwing on these turbulent waters?

Posted by: Jackofall on 25th Apr 2008 at 10:00PM

Jackofall's Avatar As it's only 2 days that we were away (a week is a very long time in blogging politics) - how much older than 25 must you be?

Posted by: Jackofall on 25th Apr 2008 at 10:04PM

Frances's Avatar Watch it, Jacko, I don't mind owning up to my own 62 years (especially when folks ask me who colors my hair and I toss off ... it's natural) but sweet Milla (she may not go for that sweet bit) is allowed to keep her years on this earth to herself.

Oh, Milla will most likely tell all.

I have said welcome back to UPL; please let me add a welcome back to you, too.
