The eagle owl look alike.
The flight delayed for two hours due to fog. Just time to go to the Japanese shop on Piccadilly for some white Peach Mochis. Angus thinks they taste like soap. However, 'The Font' loves them.
The security apparatchiks at the American Embassy view the white peach Mochis with suspicion. They are swabbed for signs of bio-hazards. While waiting for the results Angus thinks of making light hearted banter about the ludicrousness of a world in which Japanese candy is spectrum analyzed. The presence of two large and unsmiling Marines by the entrance dissuades him.
London at the end of October cloudy but mild.
No sign of Brexit slowing down the economy. This is hardly surprising as it hasn't happened yet. Hotel occupancy rates high thanks to the 20% fall in the value of Sterling. Throngs of Germans enjoying the half term holidays and the cheap shopping.
Sophie is overjoyed at my return.
There is an emotional reunion. Emotional = noisy.
Bob needs to have more time spent on his grooming. He's beginning to look like one of the Eagle owls that line the branches of the plane trees along the lane. Haircut time tomorrow ?
