So Ben and I went to the special Mass at the local church, instead of driving into Toulouse for our normal Protestant worship. It was good to be praying with, and for, the people of our town.
The local oom-pah band was there, being very restrained with their oom-pahs whilst in church. They were still pretty loud, though! After the service the veteran flag-bearers marched with the band,
along with the mayor and opposition leader, and others, to lay wreaths on the military graves in our cemetery.
But the other side of the fête was always visible...
I didn't take my camera yesterday evening, when we took the boys and one of their friends to the fête foraine (funfair), so this is one of the photos from last year's post.
