The little dog is Philibert Froidevaux who we purchased (or was he a free gift?) about 25 years ago at the Arlebosc bakery together with a baguette. As we did not know what to do with him, we stuck him into a small hole in the outside wall by the house steps. A few days ago a guest asked me “Did you notice there is a dog in the wall?”
This gave me the idea to make him the star of my first Jazz video clip based on last weeks Jazz n’Cakes concert. After a quarter of a century being rained on, he still looks the part!
So here is the link It ain’t necessarily so – Jazz aux Sarziers
Kate is working on a Rhone Cruise so it is up to me to keep you informed about our last event at Les Sarziers. Jazz n’Cakes was a great success, with over 70 people attending and no cake crumb left at the end of the evening. Here are a few pictures …
Baking started three days before the concert and by Saturday afternoon the “n’cakes” part of the evening was ready.
The barn had to be cleared and the seating to be set up and an hour before the concert – between a bite to eat, getting the drinks ready (and washing the hair) we moved the piano from the sitting room to the barn (Thank you Brice).
… and then the show started
The night was beautifully warm and many stayed until ’round Midnight.
