A crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety.








More rain. Not that Bob and Sophie are bothered. Sophie, delighted that a new day has started,  leaps up into the back of the car.  Bob , a bit of a sleepy head, has to be lifted in. A trip to the bakers then the cafe under the arcades for the mandatory croissant slivers . Neither of them seems to be perturbed by the 9.00 am church bells. At the newsagent two little old ladies and a bald Belgian man in a white jacket stop to say hello. You can never be alone when travelling with dogs.   When the little angels get home they gnaw my remaining slipper then go out to dig along the hedgerow by the cherry orchard. 

For those of you heading off to work on a Monday morning  a little something to make you smile. A video that has, justifiably, gone viral . It gets wild at the 2:30 point.

  1. Well. That work out will be fine along Carnaby Street.
    Love the close up of the back of Bob's head watching the world drive by; makes me want to give it a kiss!
    Have a great day.

  3. The pups definitely have the motto 'have dirt, will dig'.

    Is that prancercise for REAL? Not sure with that hair style.

    1. All too real. Prancerising is apparently all the rage ( in certain circles ).

  6. Do Bob and Sophie have a particular reason for digging in a certain place, or is just all done randomly?

    I did enjoy the church bells, but the Prancercise....wow......I think that if anyone saw me doing that, I would be prancing my way right into the loony-bin!! :-)

  7. Hope you've also placed an order for slippers on Amazon by now.
    The pastry photos always knock me off my feet, they look so delicious. I would never be able to resist.
    Loved the church bells....do they ring every hour?
    I've got to check my closet for a well-cut jacket and a large gold chain before I can start Prancercising, since I've got to look the part. Yes, it's the rage now, but like you said, only in certain circles.
    Bob and Sophie sure know how to live each day to the fullest.

  8. Pretty sure Sophie has a future in the excavation business. Have you given any thought to recruiting Deere and Cat to use her in their commercials? I feel certain she would be the star of the show. Put a little hard-hat on Bob ad he could be her supervisor.

  9. Have I been living under a rock? How do I not know about Prancercise?! I'm going to be randomly laughing out loud today as I think about the gallop!

    I wish I ate as well as Bob and Sophie do! My breakfast seems so boring by comparison!

  10. Love the 2nd. video of the bells and the top of one of the dogs head!

  11. Never know what you will surprise us with next, Angus! That Prancercise is a little confusing, but also strangely fascinating.

  12. Prancercise.
    I don't know what to say.
    I do love the fact that she starts out to what sounds suspiciously like Werewolves of London by Warren Zevon.

  13. Love the vidoe with the bells but why is a dishevelled person sitting on the ground. Funny, I pictured the font as being blonde. And tall with blue eyes. Can"t imagine why.

    Watching the gallop gave me a strange and powerful flashback. I was three and inthe backyard. I was sure that if I tried hard enough I would be able to fly.

  16. Ah...digging to China, I see. Tucker will meet them there..he's about 1/2 way done !!!
    Prancersise had 6,000,000+ hits?? What have we done by having people post things like this and watching it ???
    Back to watching Tucker dig !

  17. HOooooooo buddy...Prancercise? Really? I mean, just...REALLY!? That video probably *had* to end due to her having been tackled by a SWAT team on account of exhibiting disturbing behavior in a public park.

    Let's think happy thoughts. Mostly about the pastries and village cafe shots above, which are enough to make one swoon...
