With all the visitors gone the angelic duo are adjusting to a less frenetic pace of life . Sophie has exorcised the memory of the youthful interlopers by barking loudly in each of the, now empty, guest bedrooms.
At his usual bed time Bob picks up his favourite toy and wanders out into the garden. He's of the opinion that it might be a good idea to play throw the furry fox by starlight and go belly flopping in the pool .
The family fellow has to be informed that the sight of Angus belly flopping in the pool, at any time of day or night, would be lacking in gravitas. In return Bob gives me a look that indicates in PONland such behaviour would merely be considered jejeune.
The Old Farmer is somewhat coy about the reasons for his early return. '' I'm back to make the motor home more 'comfortable'. 'Comfortable' in this case means plastering a bewildering variety of signs and posters across its back. New net curtains have also been installed to replace the faded and torn chintz ones.
Our neighbour shows these additions to 'The Font ' who observes that they're " Quite remarkable ". The Old Farmer takes this as a compliment. He plans to set off again tomorrow.
