The day of the Petanque tournament. Tonight there's a dinner at 8.00 then 'Crazy Ed and his band' will be providing their 'very own style of music' from 11.00 pm onwards. There is also an end of festivities dinner on Sunday with music provided by 'Wilbur'. No explanation for what sort of music 'Wilbur' might offer is forthcoming. 'The font' says we should go for half an hour to show we're not 'standoffish'. Angus wonders what's wrong with being 'standoffish'.
At the bakers Bob and Sophie get some choux pastry crumbs. Angus buys two millefeuilles as fortification against the torture 'Crazy Ed and his band' are likely to inflict on his hearing.
Back at home Bob finds a piece of the elasticated rope that holds down the swimming pool cover. He holds it between his paws, pulls it, then lets it go. When it goes it makes a very satisfying "SNAP" sound. Bobs is delighted with this new toy. I could swear he laughs each time he does it. He does it a lot.
