The Confédération Générale du Travail (CGT), the largest trade Union in France, organizes demonstrations all over France. On Tuesday the 5th of November it was Roanne’s turn and the preparations started on the Monday – among other things a lot of stalls were installed. This one drew our attention because of the make, being Trigano. Down memory lane for a moment now. Late in the eighties of the last century our family of four rented a furnished(!) tent in France, Canet Plage. The brand name of this tent was, indeed, André Trigano. One night one of us, returning from the shower building, stepped inside the tent next to ours without noticing his mistake. (Yes, we can reveal it was the senior ‘him’ of the four of us.) It was pitch dark outside and the rest of the family deep asleep. ‘Mmm, a bit of a mess’ the clever ‘houseman’ thought after entering what he considered his temporary home and started to tidy up and reorganize the place. All the ‘hire-tents’ had the same layout and furniture, obviously. It took him a considerable time before he realized that his activities were taking place in someone else’s tent… Lucky him, his neighbours were out for the night. They will have wondered why everything looked well organized when they returned home. The houseman’s wife ridiculed him. Only mildly.
