More than.

The farmer is ploughing the field on the other side of the lane. The family princess watches the action with proprietorial interest. Being early she feels the need to bark - frequently. How the villagers must love having dog owners in their midst.

A walk down by the river is a good way of restoring dog and owners karma. November and it's still 70 degrees.

The baker doesn't seem to be aware that the Rugby World Cup is over. Today, in a 'better late than never' approach, he unveils a range of cakes named after countries competing in the competition. They are priced at a ten cent premium to his 'standard' range.

Angus points out that there is no Scottish cake.

The baker pauses for a moment then suggests I buy a blue, white and red French cake and remove the little red sugar rugby ball from its crown. Let it not be said the French are totally lacking in humour.

Bob and Sophie get some crumbs from a 'Sacristan' that has had an accident somewhere between the oven and the counter. The thump-thump of tails against the bakers door is an indication that they are more than happy.

Home for a hectic day of 'Throw the Furry Fox' and ' Let's bark at the farmers tractor '.

  2. I would go for a 'Fidgi'. For the name as much as for the ingredients.
    Cheers, Gail.

  3. We are sad that the rugby is over too. Wish we had such fancy cakes to enjoy!!!

  4. Perhaps the PONs could go each morning to help clear the Baker's floor.

  5. We all know a PON's work is never done -- I'm sure they found an encore.

  6. Those cakes look much brighter than most of the fans will be feeling now. We're intrigued to know how many he'll sell, and how many slivers might find their way into a couple of PONs tums !

  7. I wish I could buy one....(sigh)...
