I Went Here, 3

House of Dead Toy
The House of Dead Toys
    While attending a game convention in southern France we stumbled across this old house. It was a real traffic stopper, so it was not only us Americans that were wowed by it. Unlike everyone else, though, I went with my French friend Gregory to ask what was up. 
    We spoke to the old gent who lived there who explained that he gave all his grandchildren a new doll each Christmas, but only on the condition that they give up the old ones, which he carefully arranges among the other refugees that have preceded them.
     "I have thirteen grandchildren," he said, I think--I want to remember the number as 30 but don't trust that thought.

  1. It's great to see eccentrism is alive and well in France.

    Haven't you started a "senior years" hobby (excluding riding and yoga) to leave a mark on your town? How about a dice mountain or giant christmas themed chickens jousting...
