A brief hiatus.


There must be something in the autumn air that triggers the PONs fur to go into growth mode. It seems as if it's grown a couple of inches in as many weeks. Bobs coat thick and luxuriant and soft.  Sophie's coat merely thick and luxuriant.


The mayor is an early visitor. He's come to take down the flags after yesterdays well attended Armistice ceremony.


There will be a brief halt in the blog. Angus has to go into hospital in London for a few days. This change to the routine is explained to the PONs. They will stay with 'The Font' until tomorrow night and then go into  the K-E-N-N-E-L-S for five or six days. Bob absorbs this information with all the  responsibility of a family fellow. Sophie is not impressed, she fears that the standard of cuisine will fall.
