My name is Alain a.k.a La Foudre. I am an avid pétanque player, an animal fancier and the creator and the sole author of this publication. I was born and grew up in Paris, France; after completing my education and serving 2 ½ years in the French army, I immigrated to California in 1962.
I worked for the Xerox Corporation for 35 years and retired in November 2001.
My present interests are pétanque, writing, politics (national and foreign), photography and French culture.
Merci pour votre attention. 💋
