Golf, golf, golf - only started playing 5 years ago and completely hooked. For me it’s most definitely 50% golf 50% social - great mix of people from all walks of life and all nationalities. Something I can do just about anywhere in the world - happy days
Fun, whatever happened to it? Too bloody knackered most days to even think about it, but apart from taking the dog walkies, or going to watch CA Brive with mates, it’s watching a movie in front of big telly with a few cold beers.
I am getting a new shed built and going to start building a bit of simple furniture, that may be fun???
can relate to that, Mark, my tabac is open 6 and a half days a week and I’m often too knackered too, I’ve just surfaced from my sièste to takle my second days work (no cycling today but I’m not grumbling as I managed to get out for a 3hr training ride yesterday before getting back behind the till to finish the day)
Just come in (19.00) after cutting and clearing a large fallen tree on the chemin on the “rural” way to the village. Cold, dirty and smelly, but got about 3m3 of firewood. Just about got enough strength left to open a couple of bottles of beer☺
As I have a tendency to break bones if I fall down… personally, I don’t do too many of the foot-flinging movements… but it is an absolutely wonderful dance and my hubbie and I are thoroughly enjoying ourselves…
I’m in Bordeaux city and have been running a small English-speaking theatre, film and music club. We have put on several short plays in a little tea room / bar / restaurant here in Chartrons. Also playing a lot of music ( guitar and singing ) with another English girl vocalist and occasionally a French guitarist friend in said bar and wherever else anyone will give us a drink and a snack for payment. We do shows on 60/70/80s classics. I’m developing the inclusion of bilingual songs too where the lyrics are translated … both ways as it were. Eg Leonard Cohen’s “Le Partisan”. I’ve also started exhibiting some of my photos … some old film based ( ‘argentique’ ) b&w ones and also some modern digital ( ‘numerique’ ) colour ones. Had one exhibition last September and another coming up after Easter. There’s a couple of clubs / associations here that have a good social program and mix of natives and international migrants … Bordeaux-USA Asso and the ICB ( International Club of Bordeaux ). And am currently also finding out more about the ‘Internations’ organisation which also seems to have a great mix of folk. Oh and cycling as much as possible ! Oh again … and trying to improve my French !
And we need fun.
Fancy talking about joining in on my event for May 14th?
there is no payment…but, I think lots of fun and money going to help
cats and dogs.
We have an interesting mix of people involved…and my number is 0557474233.
