one of the most beautiful towns on the French Riviera
Sign outside a shop on Avenue Edourd VII.
An eye-catcher. Lots of kids I know want to write with the teeniest stubs possible!
That's too funny Jilly. I suppose this is one of those quaint little French shops that sells only.......les crayons???V
Pencils hanging like sausages! Fantastic!:-)
perfect quote, jilly. you're as sharp as a tack!
Um, yes. But Laurel's peer, the Great Groucho, also observed that "Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana."
Avenue Edouard VII...;Never seen Jilly. I'm so nostalgic when I read the name of the street...I'm so attached to Menton !Next time I'll take a walk in MY street, I'll walk my head in the clouds.Is the joke about "lead", la mine du crayon ?
Catherine, GREAT to see you here. To explain the joke - it's a play on the word lead/led which is pronounced exactly the same - especially to confuse French people!You'll see the 'lead a horse to water' is one use of the word lead and pronunciation.(verb to lead) Then you have 'pencil must be lead' which means TWO things in this case - yes it's the interior of the pencil which is 'lead'- a noun, but it's also a play on the word led ... from the verb 'to lead. Hope I've explained it clearly.
Catherine, of course I forgot - it's YOUR street. So sorry.
Fun photo and a good quote.
