What do you get when you mix a birthday with Monday afternoon English class? Champagne and cake, of course! It's France! Today is Christiane's birthday and in honor of the occasion, Josiane brought chilled champagne, real glasses and a lemon pound cake she made to class this afternoon to properly celebrate. I didn't have my camera along...darn it! So, you'll have to trust me that we had a good time toasting our friend. How is Christiane celebrating her day? By attending what is shaping up to be a contentious meeting on a local school issue in Cajarc this evening. That's what happens when you're the assistant to the mayor in a tiny village. Bon anniversaire, Christiane!
