more gifts from the earth

Part of today's loot.  How beautiful are they?

There were several empty spots at today's market. My Bread Guy(*) is one of the vendors who are already on vacation. I miss his bread and I sincerely hope he is having a wonderful summer.

(*) My Bread Guy sells cheeses, sausages and bread, although most of the time I buy just bread from him.

A few weeks ago when I went to the Friday market, I didn't intend to buy bread because I already had a loaf at home. My Bread Guy was reading newspaper behind his cheeses, and I was going to quietly pass in front of his booth -- when he briefly looked up from his newspaper, caught my eye, put his newspaper down and walked toward the bread. Then he smiled and said "Bonjour."

This was a major milestone for me. A local vendor now considers me a regular customer!

So of course I had to buy a loaf, although I really didn't need to. And I ate a piece as soon as I got home.

It was good.
