    French Letters and Queer Camps Scarecrows.

    Hi There
    we had a day trip to Arras yesterday to collect Saul. . . This is what I saw:


    It's for sale if you want it.


    In case you've never been there - there is a very wonderful wine shop / plant shop / greengrocer, always with a line of French cars outside.


    I'm an aficionado of scarecrows, and this one could ONLY be French!

    Just this guy you know

    Jono, Agree with on the scarecrow.

    Quer could mean "short" ? Anyway, not at all how you worded it in your title.

    Once, in dimlight, I was the 'navigator' for my friend when we were trying to find another friend's place. I had to keep an eye on the street signs, etc.

    We just made a turn and my friend (he was an American) asked me what that sign said.

    It read Ausfahrt.

    Ausfart - I've been there.

    There seem to be a lot of places in Germany called that. In fact I've found that when I drive on the autobahn that there are frequent sign posts pointing to the same place.

    Be careful when parking the car in cities in Germany - even if you write down the name of the street, you will find a lot of them called Einbahnstrasse.
