Always laugh when you can. It is cheap medicine.
Another sunny day. Bob digs, Sophie finds something unmentionable to chew. Pilgrims get barked at. The PON duo learn to shelter from the sun under a bench. Muddy noses get washed.
After lunch Sophie settles down for a doze in the kitchen. There's roast chicken for dinner. Bob heads off with me to the rugby game. After ten minutes he's asleep, head on my lap. He's recently started to snore, loudly, when he's in a deep sleep. This is a deep sleep. On our way home we stop off at McDonalds by the motorway tollbooth for a coffee. He gets a bowl full of water. The table next to us have ordered a McFarmer. Bob eyes it, and the occupants of the table, adoringly. As we leave he casts longing looks back in their direction. An early lesson in dealing with disappointments.
