Like the sleeping cat and the lady at the grocery store, this is another photo I took in Ménerbes. I’m not sure if the name of the village rings any bell, but Ménerbes was the hometown of Peter Mayle. It is where he wrote “A year in Provence” and many other best seller books about daily life in Provence. I’m sure Peter Mayle would be able to invent a story around this photo.
Now I don’t have his writer skills, but this image sure tickles my imagination. It makes me wonder what it would be like to be ten years old, living in Provence maybe or staying with an aunt or an uncle. Is he hanging out with his best friend or perhaps the other boy is his nephew? Were they running errands for the lady next door?
Or did they pick a basket full of fresh cherries from their grandfather’s orchard?
Who’s to tell?
