…our appeal of the notorious road running through our school campus was upheld in one court and then over ruled by a higher court. This means our lovely, understanding, intelligent ‘Marie’ (I’m using these adjectives to describe him lest I use some less than charitable ones) can put the road through whenever he wishes. Although, after consulting a lawyer in Nantes, our Headmaster discovered that anytime the Marie wants to run that road he has to notify us and then we have a period of time to appeal the ruling before he again tries to overrule our appeal in a higher court of law. And allegedly this well thought out battle, invented by who-knows-who, can last for years! Brilliant isn’t it? Anyway, I’m going to stop using my limited legal vocabulary because, even though I took a law class in grad school, one of my brothers actually is in Law School. And I really wouldn’t want him to read this and laugh at me. It is never good for one’s morale to be laughed at by a younger sibling. Ever.
I also feel that this is a well-timed post. Law School Brother and his beautiful wife just gave birth to their absolutely gorgeous first daughter! So I’m pretty sure he is busy falling in love with my beautiful niece and I am guessing that reading my blog posts is currently not a huge priority. Just a guess. So think I have my bases covered!
So there you have it. It seems as though the road will be delayed for a time but the looming threat is still hanging over us. It would be such a shame to lose all of this beauty.
