A Feast of Doors

I’ve always been fascinated by doors…. especially old ones. France is a doorhound’s paradise. Here’s a collection, from an ornate cathedral door (Limoges) to simple hole-in-the-wall arrangements.

There’s one from Exeter Cathedral (not in France!)  that has an ancient cat door. It allows the cathedral cats to get into the organ loft to deal with the mice in there.

On Song

  I’m just reintroducing myself to the joys of blogging…. keeps me sane in the lockdown times.

Another prompt  from Discover. “Song”.  Hmmm…. should be easy… I invent tunes all day. Still… ‘song’ implies words… which means I’d have to unleash my singing voice.  I’ve never been much of a lead singer, but I can manage backing vocals OK.

Here’s one I made earlier…. much earlier.  First person to tell me the name of the film where Kirk Douglas takes his hands off the wheel of his little sportscar…. erm, gets a gold star.

I Gave Up…..  J P Horsam & His Imaginary Friends.  All music is subject copyright.

Obligatory photo… the amazing Jacques Coeur, awaiting a visitor in Bourges, France. This place is now in my bucket and I’m very happy.
