Jaunty singers.


There was a time when the day used to start at 5.55 am with a cold wet nose in my right ear . Now it begins with a penetrating shriek from Sophie. This is her ' I need to go out ! Now !!' way of starting the day.


There is a second comfort break later after Angus has had his first cup of coffee and Sophie has had breakfast.


The second break involves a trip to the storm drain, a parade past the kindergarten crowd ( ear scrunches now obligatory ) and a daily check up on the village horses, geese, chickens, goats and donkeys. Some routines never change. Sophie stands behind Angus when greeting the horses. You can never be too sure with horses.


At least a dozen variety of pears in the greengrocers.


You know that you're in France when there are six varieties of garlic on display.


Christmas music 4 . No festive season would be complete without a trip to the world of German Television. A full orchestra, children, a group of men in tuxedos, a man in a crumpled white suit and Christmas trees. A true saccharine extravaganza. Angus is particularly impressed with the jaunty group of background singers .

  2. It's the dozen pear varieties that impresses me.
    The black male singer standing behind the crumpled suit soloist appears to keep forgetting, than remembering again, that he's supposed to look jolly.
    Cheers, Gail.

  4. Thanks for the music - your selections are always interesting . . . ! I love the picture of Sophie by the gate - she does look like a different girl now, taking the lead. Regarding Cherry, I didn't explain well yesterday - it's actually a good thing that the mass hasn't enlarged, if it were growing, we would have had to do something immediately. As things stand, the vet is optimistic it's benign - it still needs to come out, but she assures us it's just a 30-minute operation, no big deal. Cherry's kind of had it with doctors for the moment, so we're happy to give her a holiday break before we deal with it.

  5. Yes, the background singers are hilarious, as if they are watching a train wreck :-) We are all so happy that Sophie is well and thriving. Who would have dreamed that she would enjoy short humans with no treats? If Angus is walking Sophie, then he is on the mend. All good news. Love to all at the ROF. XXX

  7. So glad Sophie is thriving - but then doesn't every princess enjoy being the centre of attention?

  8. They might have all been singing the same song, but why did I get the impression that each group of singers were totally removed from the rest! Those poor girls with their hair in white bows - how embarrassed they must feel.
    Sophie has definitely moved forwards at a fast pace - so glad that she is now the centre of everyone's attention. A true Diva at last!

  9. I find it endearing that Sophie is finding the ear scrunches so much to her liking. The picture of her at the front door is especially pretty.

    We haven’t had a check on the village animals in a while. Happy they are where they are suppose to be and are fine. Sophie at the gate looks eager to check on them! The German Christmas production reminds me of an Andy Williams Christmas show from the 1970’s. I loved the Christmas tree!
