Old Father Time

“Last night we went to our favourite crêpe restaurant, “Le Coin Tranquille.” As usual it was packed with Bretons. Smoke from the fire stings your eyes. It is noisy, filled with voices of all ages enjoying themselves. It is hot; so many people in one small place, open wood fires and sizzling crêpe plated working full blast. It is a tiny bar, deep in the dark black night and it is such a good night out. A few months ago I designed the place mats, which include portraits of the two girls who do all the cooking and their Grandmother who started it. Father was upset; I hadn’t included him on the place mat! So I decided that he would be an appropriate portrait for New Years Eve, Father standing in for Old Father Time."
Happy New Year everyone.
