    Hi all!

    As you might know (or not!) I am a stadium warden. As a warden I have a house at the entrance of that stadium, which is a private one, belonging to a big firm.

    I desperately need some holidays to distress but I am not right now in a position I can leave my house on its own. The reason is , the stadium has been invaded by gypsies (except the bit belonging to me).

    I'd rather have a couple without children, or a man on his own. It could be more than one van: 2 or 3 are ok.
    It definitely MUST NOT be someone aggressive or wanting to have the last word.... it is not the right option in these particular circumstances.
    You can have water. You can plug in the main (one van at a time without using kettle :not that I want it cheap, but just because it tends to blow up easily!). There's a place to empty your cassette on the stadium, without having to go through "them" all. And I see no problem at all if your grey tank is open when parked in my garden.
    You can have dogs/cats, no problem.
    This would be from 5th of august to 20th of August.
    If you're introduced by a funster I know, it's even better.
    I will have to introduce you to my boss and the local gendarmes with your identity papers and registration.


    Any question, just ask away. I would be so grateful. I have also texted my son, to ask him but being in Iceland , I don't know if his phone allows him to text Europe (he's not a phone person, so his phone is a basic one.... he just phones with it LOL!)? Thanks for readind me!


    Amicalement

    Frankie

    Edit: wifi available , a bit weak but fine most of the time!
    You can run genny all day long if you want to!

    Ask the gypsies to look after it, they get a lot of bad press you know.

    I thought you French did not put up with crap from undesirables ? Though you are paying a terrible price right now.

    I thought I would point out that our roaming cousins are parked a little away from the Stadium gated entrance... on one side...

    Don't be a Silly Billy, Mr Snowbird... we will find it very difficult to go off on our holiday tour together if I am here guarding the Empire.

    I do keep telling you to keep off the strong drink... :rofl:

    "Prefer" is what she said, I'm sure she'd be more than happy with one well behaved kid.

    Hi Bill!
    I have said I preferred no children because I thought parents would be worried with these people around and I feel responsible too. But I personally do not mind at all. Gypsies would not touch a child that's for sure. We call it "Principe de Precaution" , I'm sure you can understand these words.

    I should add that of course this stands much more for people being already in France or not far. People willing to travel to France just to help me (which I would be very grateful for) will have expenses I can't help with . I can't do both hols+expenses for someone to come over. I'd rather pay a student to come and stay at my place it would save a lot of troubles , but I can't do that either.

    Anyway, if you think you can do it , let me know Bill

    Hi Frankie
    Would have loved to help you out but have to go back to UK (we are at Parc Verger at the mo) as I have to work a few days at the beginning of August. Maybe next time with a bit more notice (y) xxx

    Dam it JJ you get all the best jobs!!
    theres posts that are hard to fill ,but wait i have just realised there is the very man for the job on this forum---tootles!
    there you go ,cool and calm under pressure ,a man of the people,completely open about race creed or colour,so what he may have shot a fenian or two,
    but this is the man for you.
    He will not take long to drill them into shape,by the time your friend come back from holiday -they will be eating out of his hand.!! (or they will have eaten him and his hand"
    In years to come it will be heralded as one of the greatest social experiments even undertaken!
    people will be proud of you for having arranged such a meeting of minds,and they will hail you in the street--
    on it goes -be cunning ,tell him its hush hush (ohmservice),
    lay it on thick-he has been to northern ireland so he knows a thing or two.
    And lastly tell him if there is any problem,we will back him up,
    to the hilt!!
