I realized recently that Grenouille and I owe a debt to another blog artist, Susan of Adventures, Ink. Grenouille had been part of my posts for about two weeks when I found her blog through DCup's Politits. This particular post was the first I saw of Susan's work, in both words and art. When I inquired about Crow (in the comments) Susan replied and provided a link to an example. It's inspiring reading.
And it was a week later that Grenouille wrote a post on his own. Until then I had quoted him in the "Appendecis de Grenouille," and he had already been commenting on life etc. before I met Susan, but on August 8 Grenouille wrote the post without me. Since then he has mostly spoken for himself. We were inspired by Crow, I think, to go that last step.
So a toast to Susan and Adventures, Ink!

Mai oui! Bravo! Merci, cher Susan, for pushing Etienne to let me have the keyboard. The mechanism now works for us both.
