In between showers, I have been out and about, with our visitors family and friends.
I have managed to get out and about with my camera but not always managing to get pictures with blue skies. Here are a few shots from recent weeks.
Having a laugh with friends in Combourg
Coffee by Le château de Fougères
A visit to the Comice Agricole
A walk around the Mont Saint Michel
My post was short and I hope sweet!
At the time of the French Revolution (1787-1799), knee breeches ("culottes" in French) were the height of fashion for aristocratic men. The men of the general populace could not afford such impractical finery and instead wore the "pantaloon" (long trousers). When the poorer classes rose up against the government, members of the Revolutionary army used this difference in dress to distinguish themselves from the aristocracy, calling themselves "soldats sans culottes," literally, "soldiers without culottes." Almost immediately, "sansculotte" became a noun in both French and English.
