A wet and windy night. Tempestuous in the literal sense of the word. Amid the howling Sophie has opted to sleep behind an arm chair in the hallway. A great position when it's stormy. This morning she gives me her '' is it alright ? ' look before we head out.
No hesitancy once she's out and underway. The hunt for badger poo can put a spring in a girls step.
At the supermarket we discover it's almost Ramadan. The cheerful Algerian family in front of me buy six packs of dates. Then they send their children back to pick up another six. There are only four left. The cashier phones the stock room to see if they have any. They don't. A lengthy discussion ensues as to whether ten packs are enough. Angus moves to another check out line. When he pays and goes the discussion over dates is still ongoing.
Angus picks up strawberries ...
... and green asparagus.
The PONs join me for a coffee at the trendy American burger cafe. This week they're doing a Spring Break burger. Angus wonders how many Spring Breakers would go for a burger with Coppa, asparagus, and fried egg.
I hope no one was in it at the time : https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-04-23/philippines-earthquake-waterfall-skyscraper-rooftop-pool/11036414
