No great discovery was ever made without a bold guess.

Another hot , cloudless, perfect day. Angus, the Presbyterian, knows that this unseasonal weather must be a foretaste of wind and snow to come. Bob and Sophie have no such Calvinist demons and get on with chasing blackbirds, barking at tractors and dozing in the shade.

On the radio a discussion programme from Paris. A guest ' expert ' informs us that '' the Channel tunnel has been a great success because of the constant stream of English wishing to escape to France for culture and good food ". I'd like to think that this was humour but it probably wasn't .


  1. Both PONS looking extremely well-groomed (to perfection) in todays' close-ups. But then…….the day is young.
    Greetings from the Westcoast of Canada.

  2. Now how many French are there living and working in London these days, enjoying better job opportunities and lower taxes? Did any of the guest 'experts' mention discuss this aspect of things?

  3. Go with the PONs. They know what's important in life.

  4. I've learnt something today, I thought it was pessimism when my husband predicted bad weather even though the sun was shining, now I've found out he's a closet Calvinist !
    Enjoy the lovely weather while is last.

  5. They are looking gorgeous - grown up, strong, confident and happy. Good job of dog raising M'Ongoose and The Font.

  6. I think you may be right, I've heard that the French don't have much of a sense of humor.

  7. Ha ha ha! I hope your Calvinist notions were wrong.

    At least the French are good for entertainment!

  8. We are looking forward to our first hot, cloudless day here, still surrounded by snow, clouds and cold!

  9. Dear Angus,
    We are so pleased to have found your blog. After the loss of our PON in February we were devastated. Your gorgeous pictures and narrative helped ease our experience. Thank you for sharing such a lovely blog.
    Best regards, Audra and Eric

    1. How sad to lose a PON. Did you ever see the Wilf the PON blog ?
