The worst loneliness is to not be comfortable with yourself.

 What a difference a year makes. These ...

 have turned into these .


Another of life's joyful little victories. Too unimportant for a diary but too important to go unrecorded .

To mark the great occasion Bob and Sophie have turned their attention to the bamboo in the garden. A combination of tugging and biting and voila ! bamboo becomes an accessible snack. 

Strong winds overnight. One of the fat balls from the bird feeder blows onto the ground. Sophie soon finds it . Chewed, then swallowed, before it can be retrieved. This could prove to be a birthday gift that keeps on giving.

    Could I borrow them for a day - our bamboo is getting out of control and could do with a bit of Bob and Sophie's gardening skills !

  10. Love the PONdas! They they grown into plant killing machines. As the font says "it will grow back". After a year, your garden has a lot of growing back to do. Happiest of birthday to the dueling delights.

Thank you, Angus, for sharing and for letting these puppies be puppies as much as possible. I am enjoying the ride reading of your lives in deep France.

  22. I'm late to the party, as usual (but hoping I've missed the effects of the lard!) Wishing the PONs a happy birthday, with licks-and-purrs from our four kitties.
