Mournful but well fed.
After a fourth night of wind and heavy rain the courtyard is covered in leaves and branches. Bob surveys the garden for any signs of squirrels or, heaven forbid, C-A-T-S. At the drainage ditch Bob and Angus wave at the school bus and discuss Gordon Sondlands remarkable memory. Sophie , ever practical, heads off along the lane with a portion of owl discarded vole.
The supermarket has segued straight from Halloween into full Christmas mode. This years must have item a four foot tall wooden nutcracker.
In the US section of the exotic foods of the world aisle six jars of Heinz Salad Cream make an appearance. What will the residents of the corner of France profonde make of this exotic delight ?
At the door of the supermarket 14 year old MiLou and his great great great grandson maintain a mournful watch for their mistress. Or, perhaps more correctly the great great great grandson maintains careful watch. MiLou just looks mournful in a well fed sort of way.
