This morning I wrote a long post (you know how long-winded I am) about how Saint-Aignan and the surrounding area has changed, for better and for worse, over the eight years we've lived here. When it was all written, I clicked the Publish Post button and headed out the door for a walk in the vineyard with the dog.
I just got back, and on my computer screen I found an error message. Blogger couldn't process your request, it said, or something like that. The text is gone and there doesn't seem to be any way to retrieve it.
That's never really happened to me before, so I have no idea what the problem was.
Anway, I have to get back to painting. Yes, I'm still painting. Door frames and facings, and the doors themselves. There are four doors and doorways that still need work. Each takes many coats of white paint. So I'd better get to it. I think I can remember the gist of my lost post so I'll write it again, maybe over the weekend.
