Keep It Up

Here's another shot of the donjon, or keep, of the Château du Grand-Pressigny taken from, well, directly below. I like images like this that accentuate the verticality of buildings, whether old castles or modern skyscrapers.

The (more or less) western wall of the donjon.

I did get some minor yard work done on Sunday, but I still have the grass cutting to do. I didn't cut grass on Sunday because we only have a two hour window in which to use power tools (like lawnmowers) that make noise on Sundays. It's between ten a.m. and noon. I wasn't ready to cut the grass yet at ten, and besides, we need gasoline.


  1. I wasn't aware of the 2-hour window for making noise on a Sunday. What a good idea. Much better than being plagued with the drone of machines all day long, which is what we get here.

    (Even if it was a rule, nobody would take any notice.)

  2. Wow...look at all of that lack of grout!

  3. Very civilized, that two-hour window.
    Do people stick to it?

  4. jean, that's for our town. I don't know if other towns do the same.

    alewis, that's one way to look at it!

    carolyn, yes, for the most part. People in agriculture are exempt, so the tractors and other farm (vineyard) equipment can be used.

  5. awesome picture.

  6. I don't think I'd stand there to take a photo.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
