Of course there are cats that have to search for preys for their daily food. But our lives is certainly better than the lives of countrymen – “the majority of the French population, “ my Master says – 150 years ago. My Master has just finished reading “The life of a simple man”. It should be read by those French people tempted to let go social rights that poor people took so much time to obtain.

Tiennon was dominated by his landlords and their right-hand men during his whole life. As a child he had a very harsh life. When an old man, he can see the slow evolution towards a more decent life for countrymen like him.
