You live and let live. And eventually that becomes enough.
Texas godson has limitless energy and boundless patience. This is a perfect combination for dealing with two ten month old PON's. While Angus covers the swimming pool cover with a gauze net, Bob and Sophie exhaust themselves playing non-stop catch. Full marks to the Texan.
Off to the local market town . Angus finds a parking spot. As he reverses in a woman emerges from the vehicle in front , knocks on the window and tells him to be careful . '' My cars my joy " she says with a vehemence bordering on insanity. She then stands and watches to make sure the little Skoda doesn't 'kiss' her bumpers. The Skoda may not be a joy riders vehicle of choice but in the transportation stakes it surely beats a fifteen year old Peugeot van with frosted side windows. Satisfied her 'joy' hasn't been violated the woman wanders off down the street talking to herself. From time to time she turns around and glares.
Texan godson in need of a mid-morning snack. The local restaurants goats cheese and cheddar burger an irresistible lure. On the way home, having carefully avoided the decrepit Peugeot, a chance to ask him what it was like. '' Once tried never forgotten ".
