And now down to earth...

When Madame Grandpierre and I see all the students off to their families our attention turns to our lost one, Maggie.  I check with the very helpful people of the SNCF (the train company), and they help me calculate the most likely time of arrival for a person coming from Paris.  They say that with good advice from the agents in Paris, Maggie may well be on the train arriving at 7:16 pm.  I run home, unload my bags and return to the station just in time for the 7:16 from Nantes.  Sure enough, Maggie is there, safe and sound.  Together she and I scurry over to the Mariotti's home a short walk away.  Maggie is welcomed with open arms, and I am delighted that everything has worked out.  Now I'm ready for dinner, and am lucky that Madame Grandpierre has invited me for dinner tonight.  I'll really enjoy a good meal and an evening of conversation before settling in for our first weekend in Vendée.
