Bravery never goes out of style.
Miss Sophie is taking enforced idleness as well as can be expected. In other words badly. A quart of enthusiasm poured into a cage the size of a pint pot. Highlight of her day - tee shirt changing time. She struts around , head held high, showing it off as if she's on the catwalk . Her tee shirt is now changed three times a day.
Bob spends a large part of his morning ( that part not involved with chasing blackbirds, barking at the post woman, visiting the bakers or being walked round the village ) on the floor of the kitchen guarding his sister. He seems to have decided that his sisters done something seriously wrong. At other times he thinks maybe it's his fault she's locked up. Encouragement is administered. In the afternoon he either plays ball with the young workman or touch rugby with Angus. His energy levels seem boundless.
Tuesday nights Village Committee Meeting . Seems the Old Farmer and his cohort of helpers fired up the kiln and then went of for a liquid lunch. The liquid lunch proved to be of the '' well, only one more glass " variety. By the time lunch was over temperatures inside the kiln had soared. From what ' the font ' understood ( the conversation was somewhat animated ) the bricks at the base of the kiln have fused together and are now unstable. What were cracks have turned into deep fissures. The chairman of the Village Fleuri Committee calls the Chairman of the Beautiful Byeways Committee an idiot. This ( or perhaps the qualifying adjective ) was not well received.
