'The Font' heads off to Spain for the night to deal with Spanish bureaucracy and the aged relatives final paperwork. Angus discovers American Mac and Cheese in the supermarket.
A careful reading of the package shows that it's manufactured in a facility that processes dairy, wheat, eggs, soy, crustacea, fish and nuts. Quite how this ties in with it being 'handmade' is for more discerning shoppers to determine.
Angus isn't sure that it meets the 'World's Best ' test but Bob and Sophie seem happy enough with the spoonful that's added to their kibbles.
Some garden furniture arrives.
From a vantage point on their grooming table Bob and Sophie carefully monitor the arrival of the truck, the unloading of the boxes and the unpacking of the furniture. Both PONs decide that empty cardboard boxes are wonderful to hide in. Sophie is so delighted she emits high pitched squeaking noises.
There is bubble wrap to pop. What a glorious start to a day.
Last night there was an election meeting in the village hall. A tall and excitable gentleman in a black suit comes to tell the villagers why his candidate will restore the honour of France. Twenty or so people show up. The turnout isn't so much a sign of political fervour as a reflection of the fact that apart from 'Chicago Fire' it's a quiet night on television. All goes well until the visitor launches into an attack on '' Les Anglais installes dans la campagne francaise qui sans payer les impots en France profitent des largesses et de la qualite de notre systeme de sante ". Angus feels like pointing out that as a foreigner he is required to have health insurance and pays enough tax to keep a French frigate afloat for a year but decides to keep quiet.
So starts a quiet weekend in deepest, deepest France profonde.
