Trouble is the common denominator of life. It is the great equalizer.






The German billionaires are building a new garage. The hill scooped out to make room for four hundred square metres of concrete on each of its two levels. Home for their collection of gullwing Mercedes . Sophie wanders down with me to watch the cement being poured . The operator of the cement mixer catches sight of her, stops what he's doing, clambers out of the cab and wanders over . '' Tu es jolie " he says  while scratching her behind the ear. Sophie accepts this attention as if it's the most natural thing in the world to be tickled and praised by the operator of a large piece of construction machinery.

Bob spends his afternoon waiting in the courtyard for  pilgrims to wander by. This is proving to be an excellent season for pilgrim spotting . A dozen unsuspecting Belgians wander by and are greeted enthusiastically. They pick up their pace as they pass the front gate. 

At the honey farm a new addition. A black and white hunting dog. He greets Bob like a long lost cousin.

  1. He's a fine looking fellow. A sort of PON meets pointer.

    Bob still has an air of 'not quite done' to me, whereas Sophie is looking settled into her skin.

    Have a lovely day.
