Department of Unpleasant Surprises

Nancy and I went to a Vide Grenier in Montsegur. It is a small village just beneath the ancient site where a bunch of Cathars were burned alive for their beliefs. (You can google this or go back and find the post I did last June.) You see a lot of strange stuff in a Vide Grenier, but this takes the cake. A jigsaw puzzle of three "beloved" Oakland Raiders. You might reasonably expect to find this at a garage sale at somebody's trailer in Compton, Oxnard, or Thousand Oaks, but Montsegur? Beyond the pale.
