Purely coincidental.

Not yet seven am. Sophie's boredom threshold has already been crossed. She's shredded a cushion. Todays pre-breakfast challenge. When presented with the enormity of her crime she reverts to looking innocent. The ' I was framed ' face. The fact she's found lying in the midst of a pile of feathers and foam purely coincidental.

In the local town the end of summer fair. There is a huge pavilion given over to motor homes. There are also lots and lots of stalls displaying security doors, double glazing, reconstituted stone driveways, state of the art sewage systems and solar panels. Angus talks to two sewage men.

Outside, a group of young men relentlessly polish three garishly painted Ford Mustangs. They work for a company called Auto Exotique. The question of who would buy a Ford Mustang in rural France profonde remains unanswered. Auto Exotique also has one of those super stretched Lincoln Town Cars . The young men try, unsuccessfully, to tempt local lovelies into the back with the romantic phrase ' Would you like a turn round the block love ? '. The heirs of Racine and Moliere. 

We have a cup of liquid rust at the cafe and then head home. 

In the absence of passing pilgrims Bob practices frightening facial gestures and barks at the occasional tractor.

Sophie chases red squirrels and radiates irrepressible happiness.

Oh dear! Was Sophie told she was a naughty girl and there would be no yoghurt pot this morning? I do hope it wasn't a valuable/favourite cushion? Bob's look is veerrrry scary!

As if Sophie could possibly be guilty of such a heinous crime as cushion shredding - it just found it's way into her mouth, practically jumped at her, so what's a girl to do ? I laughed when I saw Bob's face, but never mind, he has all winter to practice looking really scary.
Would the Ford Mustangs appeal to the morose builders lads, worth doing a bit of overtime for, perhaps?

Bella Roxy & Macdui said... is just coincidental...brazen it out! SHE had a white with baby blue interior Mustang years ago........cost $US2,600. Brings back memories, but not much could fit in the back seat.

It seems to me that more and more people are buying motor homes these days. Or is it just that I'm now in the age group where contemporaries are contemplating retirement and a different lifestyle?
Cheers, Gail.

Angus that first photo made me laugh out so loud this matter what naughty deed she does, Sophie will always be a sweetie.

It is that inner happiness, isn't it? Nothing touches it, nothing breaks it. That's why all of their fans love them so.
