Bob is delighted to be reunited with the errant member of his flock. A lengthy Mano a Mano follows.
Sophie's greeting is more in the '' Where do you think you've been ? " style.
Don't be in any doubt that a dogs face can't speak volumes.
Normal service is finally restored over a lengthy game of throw the disemboweled lamb.

Mid-afternoon the asthmatic sewing machine sound of Madame Bays Wild Child voiturette can be heard thrumming along the drive. This is followed by the sound of scattering gravel as she applies the brakes. It seems our saintly Octogenarian has gone along to have her knee seen to in the local doctors surgery. Usually, during the summer, they have a locum. Madame Bay is greatly taken with the locum ' a nice young man with lovely hair and warm hands '. This year the surgery is closed for three weeks while the staff go away on their annual holidays. No arrangements have been made for a stand in doctor. It's not just a problem here. Summer closure of doctors surgeries is apparently causing real problems in both Paris and Marseille where the heat has been extreme and at a time when old folk need medical advice the most. Why they don't stagger their vacations is a mystery.
PS - The layout is throwing a wobbly this morning.
