Time has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters.
Bob and Sophie are given a mid-morning chew. Within ten minutes Sophie has a chew in her mouth and the other between her front paws. Bob can't believe that his sister is responsible for the theft of his treat. He spends ten minutes searching in the garden for it. There's no doubting which of the two siblings is the clever one.
The farmers are out until well past midnight harvesting the grain. Their progress marked by plumes of wheat chaff spiraling up from behind the combines. The PON's watch the enormous machines in silence .
Ten am rush hour at the supermarket. The shelf stackers have turned all the aisles into obstacle courses. Bad tempered French ladies weave in and out of the obstructions. Trolley to trolley arguments over who has right of way. Angus decides that he will beat a hasty retreat. Somehow they stack shelves differently in the UK. Do they not have health and safety rules here ?
