Total absence of humour renders life impossible.
Three cans of baked beans, four cans of Dr.Peppers and a dozen or so bags of jelly beans make an appearance in the 'exotic foods' section of the supermarket. Deepest France profonde can now supply the strange culinary cravings of any foreign tourists who make it here for the Easter holidays.
Bob and Sophie chase squirrels, scamper after blackbirds and guard against passing pilgrims. At four in the afternoon they come inside for their kibbles and a snooze. Batteries recharged they're back out again at four thirty.
In the evening they stealthily creep upstairs and eat the non-slip underlay on three of the rugs that line the hallway. Sophie , who has a piece of foam dangling from her jaw, would have us believe it was solely Bob's idea.
