While Bob and 'The Font' go for a power walk round the lake Angus and Sophie go for a gentle saunter on the village green. Sophie isn't so much interested in a gentle saunter as a high speed mole hunt. This afternoon she returns to the hospital for what we hope is the all clear on the surgery and the return to a normal routine.
Home for breakfast.
Bob gets a walk to the Holy Well and the Sacred Oak. Something about the light this morning that makes the grass very green.
Time to dig for small furry things in the high banks on either side of the lane. The small furry things once again outsmart the male PON. The squeaks of delight might give them pre-warning.
On the blackboard in the cafe lunch is advertised. Plat + Desert + KF for E11. Two old beret wearing gentleman demand to know what a 'KF' is. The young, new and social media savvy barman informs them that it's coffee. The old gentlemen look blankly at him. The barman spells out Kah Fay phonetically. They still look blankly at him. '' It's how you tweet the word coffee". The gulf in understanding widens. Time moves slowly, if at all, in deepest, deepest France profonde.
Another sign I've become my father. It took all of three minutes to work out what a 'home school shooter' is.
