The sound of singing draws me to the window. The Old Farmer can be seen walking back from the Belgian lady's house. He's wearing his brown cut off dressing gown jacket and is clearly very happy with life. No simmer frame today just the walking stick.
Two very affable dogs appear at the front gate. Sophie far from being territorial is keen to make their acquaintance.
Bob stands on his stump seat and whimpers with excitement. The dogs belong to the plumber who is installing a new kitchen in the house belonging to the matron of the Old Folks home. The plumber comes out onto the lane and hollers for the dogs to come back and join him. They go but cast longing glances back to Bob and Sophie. Perhaps tomorrow ?
Music for turbulent times. France Musique offers up this deeply unfashionable but very beautiful piece by Mendelssohn this morning . The flautists moment in the sun ? The Nazis banned it. : https://youtu.be/otcrnrQAwD8?t=1376
