Tous au bistrot

Angus has to feed The Old Farmers one remaining cat.

Bob is unimpressed that Angus is spending time with a cat. He gives me a '' no good will come of it " look.

Sophie is more demonstrative in her views on the subject. '' You've done what ? "

An early evening walk across the village green with Bob and Sophie. By six o'clock the temperatures are falling rapidly. No frost yet but it's decidedly bracing. Bob and Sophie love the cold weather. They play savage my sibling on the grass and roll over and over and over. 

Sophie watches Angus prepare dinner. She sighs.

In Paris it's 'Tous au bistrot' night. The restaurants full of slightly nervous customers out to show that life goes on. 'The Font' chooses a new restaurant that has been written up in Le Figaro and insists on sitting outside.The staff are of the trendy beard and piercings variety. Not just any beards but those Old Man and the Sea type beards that seem to have become all the rage. 'The Font', usually a Badoit drinker when dining alone, orders a half bottle of Chablis . A sign perhaps of the slight edginess in the atmosphere. 

Don't know which is the more interesting. The article or the comments :

Oh dear, Bob is probably right ! Is Sophie's sigh a silent comment on the falling standards of cuisine at ROF? Perhaps she thinks the Old Farmer's cat is eating all the tasty morsels she should be getting ?
Bravo 'The Font', we hope that the meal was enjoyable.

I trust the 'Font' was wearing a warm cardi?

Hats off to whoever invented those outside gas heaters.

Angus said...

A sad day when a girl has to put up with cooking of this low standard.

Hats off to airconditioner inventors as well. We're heading for 40°C tomorrow. The dogs agree with Bob--nothing good comes from fraternizing with cats.

When I used to fed the neighbours cats my dog at the time, Mia, used to pace up and down the boundary fence barking. I think she would agree with Bob and Sophie!

Good for her!

Ummm .... I am watching the news. I want the Font to come home.
