Happiness is only real when shared.
While ' the font ' goes to the fishmongers Angus sits on the rear bumper with the tailgate open. Next to him two inquisitive furry faces peer out at the world beyond. A senior gentleman in beige car coat and beige peaked cap wanders over and starts up a conversation. '' Bonjour monsieur. Bonjour. May I ask what breed they are ? ". Another octogenarian gentleman is called over. '' Maurice. These puppies are Polish. Have you ever seen a Polish dog ? ". Three passing ladies with breakfast baguettes sticking out of their shopping bags pause and join in the conversation. '' Are they brother and sister ? What big feet they have ". Amid laughter Bob and Sophie lick fingers. You're never alone when travelling with a PON.
A six foot tall fibreglass squirrel and matching three foot fibreglass hazelnut have been installed in the middle of the roundabout next to the sunflower seed depot. Fitting street furniture for the world capital of nuts. As you approach the roundabout the squirrel suddenly looms over an oleander bush. A hint of Jurassic Park. Is Angus alone in thinking it looks ever so slightly menacing ?
