Huck Finn Postscript

While mumbling over my garden harvest lunch and smuggly playing hooky plugged in from afar, a real life Tom and Huck- French style, pulled up in their canoe. Arnaud and Mathieu had set off from Agen along my long village for a three day paddle writing a short series of articles for the local SudOuest daily. I was the second 'river gypsy' they had met. I broke out the little 33cl beers we like and we 'talked story'. Before they left, we exchanged e-addresses and e-pictures.
Funny little world along this long winding canal.
