All animals except man know that the principal business of life is to enjoy it.
A sign appears on the church door. '' UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. Admission to the church reserved for those with written permission from the town hall ". Underneath the mayors signature and a very official looking stamp with an eagle on it. The conflicting demands of the fresco restorers dangerous scaffolding, the dusty saints statue and the little lady with the purple hat seem to have been resolved.The wisdom of Solomon in action .
The old farmer is out and about at first light. A primrose yellow DAF coupe circa 1972 in his driveway. '' She's a real beauty. A bit of work and she'll be as good a new ". He pauses for a moment then adds '' Better than new and worth a pretty penny ". M'Ongoose makes a noise in the back of his throat that could be interpreted as agreement.
Down to the market with Bob and Sophie. Bob has outgrown the harness we recently bought . We find an old one which is several sizes too large . He sits quite still as the straps are tightened around him. It's early days but its already apparent that he is the essence of PON. Cheerful , uncomplaining , guileless. Guileless is not a word one would apply to his sister who has learnt that brain rather than brawn is the way to deal with a large enthusiastic brother.
Home from the bakers. They charge around the garden. Sophie finds a plastic flower pot. Bob gives chase. These pups have been born with adrenalin rather than blood in their veins
