It should be noted that the desktop now makes a deep burbling noise as it works.
We buy some fresh macaroons. The PONs put on their 'we're starving routine' but the young lady behind the counter is clearly not a dog person. Sophie lets out a yelp of annoyance and is reprimanded. As I close the tail gate there is no doubting the family diva is in a frump. Bob, as always, is happy.
