Today we have a special treat for Fun Day Sunday that once again involves a guest post by a friend of mine from across the seas–by April who lives in Switzerland. She and I have been planning her guest blog post for about a month. And I have been looking forward to it.
April has her own blog in French called April’s Violet that I highly recommend to you. My French is a bit rusty, but with the help of Google Translate I can read her essays and stories. Snap! And I’m having fun reacquainting myself the French language. Pourquoi? Parce que la langue française est très belle.
And I am positively hooked on April’s story, “Cruelle Splendeur”–a Guy of Gisborne tale that is up to Chapter 7 now. Here is the link for Chapter 1, in case you would also like to start reading it: http://aprilsviolet.wordpress.com/2012/03/30/cruelle-splendeur-chapitre-1/
To put today’s photo essay in context, April enjoys setting her 6 inch Sir Guy of Gisborne action figure in many different tableaux that tell a story–to humorous effect most of the time. You will recall that Sir Guy was the tragic anti-hero character portrayed to devastating effect by British actor Richard Armitage [portrait at right of Sir Guy is courtesy of RANet] in the BBC series Robin Hood that ran for three series (2006 – 2009).
And today, April has delightfully provided for us the English translation for her most recent Lil Guy Adventures essay–Little Guy takes some Holidays–that she shared on her blog last Thursday, June 28th. Her photo essay is definitely a giggle and sure to put the fun in Fun Day Sunday.
Enjoy and Cheers! Grati ;->
Little Guy takes some Holidays by April
Last summer, Little Guy was fed up with the moist air of Nottingham. He decided to spend a sunny holiday in Burgundy:
The comfort level was a little too simple for his taste, but he liked the view :
In fact, I’m not sure if he chose the country Bourgogne or the wine Bourgogne. Tonight, he seems to prefer the second:
He struggled a bit :
But he was rewarded :
As usual, he abused his good fortune:
And here is the result:
Of course, the next day, was Alka Seltzer and water only …
You will find the original text in French on April’s Violet’s blog here :
P.S. I/Grati can’t stop giggling! Lil Guy diving into the wine glass made me think about the Vicar Geraldine diving into the chocolate fountain. Ha! Thanks again for April sharing her delightful sense of humor with her friends across the pond.
