When you go to buy, use your eyes not your ears.



Some men arrive to check the street lights. One man drives the truck, a second operates the hydraulic lift, a third stands in the lift and does the work. A fourth man follows along behind in a white safety car. The man in the lift replaces each bulb and then washes the lamp cover. Bob and Sophie are so spell bound by this exciting street theatre they don't even bark. 

'The font' is spending an extra night in London. New tenants arrive next week. A mad dash to buy sheets, get the devout Polish cleaning ladies to spring clean and have the plumber mend a dripping tap. For good measure a bedroom carpet is replaced. Here in deepest France profonde, Bob and Sophie enthusiastically share a lunchtime bacon sandwich. 

This hotel is in Cottonwood , Idaho. You'll need to scroll through the pictures until you get to the one of 'the worlds biggest beagle'.

  1. All that in just two days. I'm most impressed by the font's efficiency! She could teach those street light men a thing or two.

  2. Angus, a bacon sandwich does make a change from a fry up but I do hope you are eating your vegetables.

  4. Sharing a bacon sandwich. Surely more fun than 'the font' is experiencing.

  5. I dunno, Angus. First it's wearable luggage, now a Beagle B&B. Waiting to see what you find next in the wonderful world of the internet -- maybe an enclosure where you could pen up all the men in dark suits until they behave properly.

    I applaud "the Font" for her efficiency. The mayor of that town with the dog-abuser show doesn't stand a chance.

  6. Bacon, if it's cured= heart disease, increased colon cancer, prostrate cancer. Take it easy , Angus.

  7. What "London Times" do you think it was that rated it in the top 20? London Kentucky, or London Minnesota? And will you be staying at this B&B on your next visit to the US? Now I've finally got a reason to go to Cottonwood Idaho instead of France to see the sunflower fields! :-)

    1. Who could resist a place that's been written up in the 'SAAB Owners Magaziine' ?

  8. So happy that new tenants are scheduled to arrive so soon, and that the flat wasn't left empty for very long.....hurray for the Font...I like her no-nonsense style.
    Maybe it's the supervisor that's driving the "safety car"....making sure the men carry out their job properly.
    That beagle hotel made my jaw drop...wherever do you find these things Angus?
