More tail wagging.
For the humans in The Rickety Old Farmhouse it's another Sunday morning. For the PONs it's the best Sunday morning ever. They race to the front door, paws tripping over paws, in the excitement of getting a new day started. In fact between tripping paws, waving tails and twitching noses the angelic duo are in symphony in motion. Excitement colliding with happiness.
We sit on the storm drain and Bob and Angus discuss the Australian elections - probably one of the most important elections of the century because the Queensland electorate rejected the proof of climate change. We also discuss Mrs.Mays doomed attempt to exclude 48% of the UK electorate from the decision making process. At this point the green Toyota Land Cruiser with the manic Westie goes by and our train of thought is broken.
Off to the bakers. On the other side of the road an old lady has managed to lock herself out on the balcony of her apartment. The firemen are trying to ascertain whether they will have to knock down her front door or whether it might be easier to winch her down and call a locksmith.
We go to the biscuit shop. This is an occasion for more tail wagging. The PONs are asked by the man behind the counter to taste a freshly baked orange butter biscuit. They willingly oblige.
No less than fourteen different types of tomatoes on sale in the greengrocers. Angus thinks this may be a record for the number of varieties on offer.
