We're up even earlier than usual talking to men in dark suits. One of them observes plaintively 'At least the pandemic is off the front pages '.
Closer to home the man with anger management issues has built a new chicken coop. Sophie discovers it on our crack of dawn walk and is intrigued.
'Encouraged' along she stops to greet the horse, from a safe distance, and then hurries on towards the ridge. We sit on the storm drain and look at the gathering clouds out towards Bordeaux. Sophie has an ear chook and leans into me. She is told as she's told every morning that ' this is her home'.
Back in the village the workmen are busy by seven am. There are three of them this morning. They are planning to pour cement into the base of the 'Swaying Jesus'. This will hopefully put paid, once and for all, to the villages sole source of fame. There is a fear that the down beam may be rotting away. When it is lifted out the extent of the damage will be visible. Later on this morning Angus and Sophie will return to see what they've found.
After such an exciting start to the day Sophie is ready for a lengthy nap.
