You can go a long way with bad legs and a good head.

Bob and Sophie watch as fifty or so septuagenarian farmers, kitted out in day-glo orange hats and jackets, arrive for their quarterly '' hunting breakfast ". A bibulous affair. Large quantities of Floc and a chunk of baguette. Doleful looking hunting dogs run up and down outside the village hall howling in frustration. Bob and Sophie howl back. '' Please Lord let them not be hunting anywhere near us " says 'the font'. 10:23 am : a convoy of battered white vans, hunting dogs on board, head off, slowly, very slowly, down the hill. From the driving we can assume that the old farmers are not in a state to do much damage. 

This morning the chocolate gateau is rejected and we opt instead for a light orange sponge. While it's being wrapped the bakers wife gives each of the PON's a handful of croissant crumbs. Bob's tail goes into overdrive. 

Sophie has been eating carrots and windfall cherries ( a lot of them ). She lies, on the wooden garden table, sunning herself. She snores. She also passes wind. PON heaven.

This is a bit 6th grade but could you name the biggest object in the universe ?


  1. Sophie may come in handy in clearing out Village meetings.

    XXXOOO Bella Roxy & Dui

  2. So even princesses fart?!!

  3. Well I had to look up bibulous and now I have a new word to add to my vocab...thanks.
    I am sure that Sophie still passed wind with class....the diva that she is....she is a cutie lying on the table sunning herself as if at a beach on the Mediterranean...absolutely cute cute cute.

  4. The video gives you something to think about -- The biggest thing in the universe for me would be my growing appetite trying to decide which to choose at the bakery! And speaking of appetite, when you're in Annapolis, or anywhere in Maryland, I highly recommend what the state is known for, crab-cakes.

  5. That orange cake looks lovely.
    Great last picture of Sophie; almost as good as my Wilfie screen saver (hope that's OK Angus).
    Have a great day.

  6. What scotsmad said. And the cakes look spectacular.

  7. Biggest object in the universe? I don't think we know yet. I'll have to get my answer from the video. Those beautiful cakes and pastries are as exotic and just as mysterious as outer space in our little corner of the world.

  8. On the, thankfully, rare occasion that Edward, ahem, passes wind, he jumps to his feet and wheels around to stare at his backside in a most accusatory fashion.

  9. At least they weren't whipping the hunting dogs.
