After the incident with the paintbrush Sophie has learnt that she's not allowed into the builders van. She turns her attention instead to the plumbers white Renault where a length of electrical cable catches her eye.
They're flight testing the new Airbus A-350. It comes roaring over the ridge at 3000 feet ; landing lights on, undercarriage down, engines on full throttle. If they can get 10 hours of flying time under their belts they'll be able to do a fly past in front of the television cameras at the Paris Airshow. Sophie stands in the lavender beds, head turned skywards, watching it fly over. Bob is too busy ferreting for earthworms to notice. Neither seems the slightest bit perturbed by this basso profundo presence.
Tonight a mid-summer concert at the Russian oligarchs chateau. A kind of Versailles on steroids. Built by a nineteenth century railway baron with an eye for ostentation . We're not sure why we've been invited. Madame Bay has heard a lot about the Russians on the 'grapevine'. Most of what she's heard comes from friends of friends of local tradesmen who've worked there. Facts and the local 'grapevine' often exist in parallel universes.
Time enough before dinner to shred the afternoon post.
Hoping those aren't 'the font's' recepies...
I'm sure those letters weren't important.
We think Sophie is waiting for the main chance....
XXXOOO Daisy, bella & Roxy
Hopefully they were only bills.
Enjoy the concert.
Looking forward to hearing about the concert. Russians have been buying up villas on Lake Como - they shine like the worst Christmas trees at night.
Shred... shred... shred
Is anything safe from puppy mischievousness? :-)
Have fun X
Sophie doesn't care which van it is, she's looking for adventure.
Brownie had a shredding marathon yesterday with a few paper towels which I'd stored beside me on the sofa while reading my book. I enjoyed the performance so much I couldn't even move to film it.
The Russians know why they've invited you and the "Font" to their concert.....strange bedfellows....it will be the talk of the town.
I'm glad Sophie and Bob don't worry about the noise from the planes. I saw the Paris airshow on TV last night as Air NZ took delivery of A320's with sharklets. At first glance it looked to me like standard wings must have been too wide for their factory!
wonder what would happen if you showed up at the RO chateau with two pon puppies in tow!
alas. we will never know.
but can't wait to hear about the evening.
Can you feel the shiver of excitement as we all await details of your visit with the Russians?!
My shredder for junk mail is mechanical. Yours has fur, much nicer.
Just think of the money you saved by buying two PON pups instead of an electric shredder.
I'm glad that the pups found time to do the shredding for you! What a familiar sight.
