PON and Whippet.
An article in the morning paper saying that they're considering chopping down the plane trees that line the local roads. Too many teenage farm boys are crashing into them after binge drinking on a Friday night. Twenty year old BMW's, the boy racers favourite, are no match for a hundred year old tree.
A mystery unfolds in the skies overhead. A plane makes an abrupt 180 degree turn. Sharp enough for anyone on board to notice. The contrails sketching a huge 'U' in the blue sky. Can't remember ever having seen an aircraft do such a volte face like that before.
The weather changing. Some clouds appear in mid-afternoon. By early evening there's a breeze blowing. Bob positions himself at the front door. Rear quarters in the warm, nose in the fresh air. Being big brother he keeps one eye open while he sleeps.
Can it be that Bob's legs are still growing ? He seems to be towering over his sister. She's pure PON. We're beginning to have doubts about his pedigree. The worlds longest legged PON. Could it be there are Whippet genes in there ?
