A profound question.
Sophie is having one of those ' winter hair ' mornings.
Her brothers coat is still asymmetrical. Hopefully the hair on his muzzle will grow.
At the supermarket they've put up a display of Christmas gifts. The display is trimmed with black crepe paper - which is an unusual design element.
Closer inspection shows that Mexican skull glasses are a central feature of the display. Just the thing to toast the festive season.
Something luminescently green in a packet of dried fruit. Could it be dried water melon ?
The bakery display continues to take its inspiration from 'sludge'. Absolutely nothing here to grab our attention.
Angus and the PONs return to the car. In our absence two pigeons have flown over. They have scored direct hits on the front wing and the passenger door. We detour to the car wash. The PONs find going to the car wash to be the height of adventure. Safe and warm inside while a hurricane blows outside. They sit inside and look out of the back window as a jet of foamy spray is directed at them. How neat is that ?
Just another day with two lively sheepdogs in deepest , deepest France profonde. The demonstrators are still blockading the motorway junction but elsewhere they seem to be taking a rest before the weekend.
The things you learn. More witches than Presbyterians in the US :
One of those profound questions for all students ( and parents of students ). Does listening to music while working help or hinder concentration ? : https://www.gwern.net/Music-distraction
