Undreamt of places.
Only two weeks to go before the next X-ray. For Sophie it can't come soon enough.
Bob is slightly drooly and a little lopsided but is otherwise the epitome of happiness.
Christmas trees still up in the the little market towns parish church. 'The Font' thinks its unusual to see a Christmas tree inside a church. This sparks a conversation which shows that neither of us know whether their presence is unusual, or not.
A pleasant development when a computer repairman phones at lunchtime to say " I'll be with you at four ". He arrives at five thirty. He's surprised to discover that the computer is in pieces. '' Did you do this ? I can't do anything if you've tried to repair it yourself ". 'The Font' explains the disassembling was done by a previous ''repairman'. He seems less than happy to hear this. Perhaps he thought he'd be home by six.
The man whistles while he works. Or, to be more precise he whistles while he sits and looks at the computers innards. Whistling is not something that PONs feel they can ignore. They howl. At six thirty the whistling repairman announces that he'll need to go and get part. '' They must have left it out in the manufacturing process '' he adds. This is the sort of stilted language that indicates he's been looking for a water tight excuse to leave.
When you call a French after sales number you begin a journey that will take you to places undreamt of.
