Easy as black and white

You would think I'd know how to colour in by now. Manga Studio is confusing when try to export in colour.  "You can trust me," it yells at me.
I am not eating anymore French cheese. It gives me crazy dreams...

Flamenco Trio, Sara Baras, Luis Ortega, Jose Serrano

In the land of silly hats.

So, Edith de France is giving me a lift home from the guitar group and I see two police cars, four policemen and one police woman from the Mossos (special, scary police force) standing outside the house. And, I get that awful feeling somewhere behind me that I get when dead things are involved.
"It's the police," says Edith who has lived through Franco's reign. "Do you want me to drop you off round the corner?"

"I haven't done anything," I say.

"You really want to stop here?"

"I live here."

"Okay, give me a call if you need me or Fernando (ex-special forces)."

The police are looking for the Invisible Wife! She is a wanted lady back in her homeland. She is not in. They return at eight and then again at midnight. She slinks in at eight this morning. Now I really am wondering if Henry is okay. He's not been here since october.

Lovely couple

Deep breath. I am about to phone the Bank of Ireland customer services. I have been trying to withdraw money since November. I have filled in all their forms.I have sent notarised copies of my life story. They have clones of everybit of paperwork I have ever owned. They have letters from my Spanish bank. They have every fecking bit of information they can possible ask for and yet after my return from a much needed break, there is an email from them..."Can you phone us on customer services at this number...."

Exit stage right......

Don't look now either.

And, if you look down you might see this dog...except, I'm wondering if this is actually what cats look like in France?
