While Sophie waits for 'The Fonts' yogurt pot, Bob and Angus get ready for a trip to the bakers.
Bob waits on the lawn that's been churned up by the builders installing the new septic tanks. For some reason this has become his favourite place to sit. Could seeping odours have anything to do with it?
It was a national holiday yesterday ( one of three in May ). The bakers is short of cakes. The display limited.
A Chocolat Bergamote for 'The Font' ( bought in the full knowledge that one small mouthful will be taken, the word 'wonderful' said and the rest passed back to Angus to finish ). We also choose a pineapple cheese cake. Bob, who is doing his ' I is adorable ' routine, is given some choux pastry crumbs. He sits patiently but the fact his tail is wagging while he's sitting indicates his level of excitement. The bakers wife tousles his hair. He beams. PON knowledge 'As long as you live , keep learning how to live'.
A mystery. This piece of music is supposedly Scottish but was actually written by two Germans. It is therefore about as Scottish as Brock wurst. It has become very popular - particularly at military weddings in the US. Here it's played rather well. The audience / congregation response in this clip is interesting and charmingly old fashioned. Is it one of those strange sacerdotal moments when people feel they have to do something ? Is it 'if one stands all stand ?'. Or do Oklahomans still subscribe to the almost forgotten old truism ' You can't sit when the pipes play ? '.
