les Davey de France

Alan and Pat live and work in Bordeaux. Alan is a pastor and Pat was a nurse. Now we work with UFM worldwide. Read on! (If you'd like to know what took us to Bordeaux, then start with the archives from September 2004)

"Have you been drinking ?" "No, I always talk like that."

We are quite often stopped now. We didn't used to be.
They want to check that you have insurance and that it's your car and that you have a driving licence.

The one this evening was a clown.

"You live in Pessac ?"

"Yes, Pessac Alouette."

"Where ?"

"At the Alouette" (I do find this hard to pronounce in French - à l'Alouette - alalwet...)

"Rue ?"

"Peres. It's by Park Cazalet"

"Are you sure ?"

"Yes, do you know the Alouette ?"

"We're the Pessac police, we know Pessac..."

"OK."

"Have you been drinking ?"

"No, I always talk like this." (I thought two can play at that game...)

"OK, goodnight !" (Phew - a copper with a sense of humour !)
