The owls have been out late. They're still screeching and fluttering in the plane trees as we head off for our morning walk. Three cars go by on the lane - one after the other. This is a most unusual occurrence. The PONs watch this automotive cavalcade with tail waving interest. Sophie stands on her hind legs at the gate ( I wish she wouldn't do that ) and squeaks with excitement.
The two young horses in the field by the stream have now got used to seeing Bob and Sophie. As we approach they trot over to the strand of wire that functions as a fence . Bob ignores them. Sophie who has run ahead suddenly realizes how big the horses are and how exposed she is and comes hurrying back. What looks small at a distance can look so different close up. Perspective can be such a difficult thing.
On our return Angus sets about topping up the swimming pool. Despite having freshly filled water bowls both PONs take delight in drinking from the leaking hosepipe valve . In fact they'll only drink from the leaking hosepipe valve . Bob drinks silently. Sophie makes loud slurping noises. She then walks back into the house - water dripping from her chin.
This morning an early trip to the wine merchants for some Pomerol. Bob and Sophie are in two minds about the wine store. The attractive and knowledgeable young lady behind the counter chats to them and tickles their chins. This is good. Sadly, however, she has nothing to offer in the way of baked goods. This is bad. Sophie gives her a grumpy stare.
Out on the storm drain Bob and Angus discuss the trials and tribulations of Jeff Sessions. Angus points out that New Zealand, Australia, Canada and now the UK all have female Chief Justices. As well as having a woman heading the judiciary the UK also has a female Head of State and a female Head of Government.
