If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's. We'd grab ours back.
It's as hot and humid as a summer on a Georgia peach farm. The PON's have a long early morning walk and then a quick trip to the bakers and greengrocers. They get their illicit half croissant from the waitress before heading back home to snooze. In the afternoon they half heartedly chase lizards and go for a paddle in the stream.
Before dinner it's time to clean and pluck their inner ears. A vital PON owners chore in this hot weather. Sophie is bribed into behaving. Bob does not behave. He has one ear plucked before Angus, exhausted, gives up.
The builder stops by ( unannounced ) to look at the fallen guttering and the tiles that have shifted on the roof. He'll get onto the repairs straight away. '' You'll manage to start this week ? " I ask. ' Almost certainly before the end of the month ' comes the reply. Straight away clearly has a different meaning in French.
