Everyday life in a rickety old Scottish farmhouse with a very happy Polish Lowland Sheepdog. A record of those unimportant little things that are too important to be forgotten.

It's a warm and sunny start to the day.
The PONs mischief quotient is high. A village cat is chased. There is much sturm and drang but the cat is long gone by the time the PONs have got their act together. Sophie finds a very old Furry Fox under the hedge where the gardeners have been working. This is a cause for much loudly voiced happiness.
The 'what are we going to do next ?' stare much in evidence. Loic, the heavily bifocaled gardener, provides some entertainment in the form of leaf blowing.
In the afternoon Sophie heads off with Angus across the fields to the little waterfall.
We go slowly. The first time we've done this in six months.
Sophie absorbs the sights sounds and smells in the same way as a sponge soaks up water.
She loves the walk but is pleased to be home. Within 30 seconds she's in her bed and having a 'reviving nap'. This lasts for three hours until dinner time . The family diva arrives in the kitchen refreshed and ravenous.
The Old Farmer is doing just fine. I ask at the bookstore for a title that a hospitalized 85 year old retired farmer might enjoy. The bookseller suggests a biography of Brigitte Bardot. Inspired suggestion. It is well received.

One hopes it was an illustrated biography ...
It makes me so happy to see Bob and Sophie plotting mischief, once again! And what a beautiful day! Grateful the Old Farmer is doing well.
Everything back to normal at the ROF, so the village cats better beware ! How I wish all the word's ills could be cured simply by finding a Furry Fox under the hedge.
Could you imagine a biography of BB without lots of photos?
Oops, that should be all the World's ills.
So pleased the Old Farmer is still finding ways to take pleasure in life! And I am thinking it won't be so very long before Sophie has energy to spare after her morning walks!
Dear Sophie - living life to the full, and sleeping to recover. Returning to normal, obviously. The bookshop really know their clientele. I hope the Old Farmer continues to recover well.
I have another suggestion for the Old Farmer: "Le Coeur n'as pas de rides" by Marina Rozenman. She was inspired by her grandmother, who fell in love in her 70s, and sought out other examples of love found late in life. Considering the Old Farmer's happiness with the Belgian Lady, he might enjoy it. It's a lovely book.
After months of inactivity it will take Sophie a bit of time to recover her strength. Thrilled she's progressing so well.
The book about Bardot was a good choice. in her eighties now, like the farmer. Two survivors. Ah, those were the days......Prayers for an uneventful recovery.
It's wonderful to see Bob and Sophie looking so well!
Bob and Sophie look absolutely wonderful. What a cheering post with pictures to match.
A very wise bookseller indeed.
So happy he's on the mend.
The book suggestion for the Old Farmer made me laugh out loud. What a brilliant choice.
So glad that both he and Sophie are doing well.
Laughed at the book suggestion, as well. That's a bookseller who knows books and readers well.
So happy Sophie is able to walk further.
Ha ha ha excellent choice.
I do hope the Beligian Lady is an easy going sort and approves of the book as well :-)
