Ashtray note

It is difficult to believe that the French have limited smoking to outdoors.  
When I think of the French film there was always a sultry type with a cigarette.  
The restaurants do not allow smoking except on their terraces 
which makes it difficult to enjoy the open-air cafes.  

I was amused by this little note written on the paneled courtyard wall, 
imploring so politely that the smoker use the ashtray provided 
and not throw the butts on the ground.

joyeux anniversaire, Nanette
