EMILE for administration, GÉRARD for ladies*.
I travelled a lot: Congo, Burundi, and especially the Ardennes.
Could you teleport me to the Ardennes, to Bouillon? I used to go there often, with my sweetheart. We had a caravan.
I was in the military, an electrician - I know a lot about high-voltage cabins. And when I
had to spend some time as an instructor in the Ardennes, we settled there for a while, with my
sweetheart. Not far from Bouillon.
Before the first world war, my grandparents ran a hotel in Bouillon. One day, a cyclone hit their hotel. Then they left for Paris.
I miss her, my sweetheart.
Even though she really gave me a hard time.
She let herself go... I miss her. 65 years of marriage!
Since her death, I haven't travelled. Except on Saturdays, to the cemetery. (During the confinement, I could not go there).
Her body was donated to science. Like her, I would also like to give my body to science.
But I don't think they will take it! It's too rotten! (laughs)
To keep myself busy, I make coasters with wine bottle caps. So far, I made 200. I offer them to nice people. I do this all day long. That's good, it prevents me from thinking.
Have you seen my medals? I am a knight Leopold 2.
Will you put me in front of Bouillon Castle? I'll get my hat.
I’ve often been told that I look like JR, in "Dallas".
Put me in front of the castle. A knight in front of a castle, that’s perfect!
