We're up late watching the debate . A nerve jarring way to pass some time. On the bright side you'd have to say it gave a good insight into the characters of the two men. In that sense it did what it was supposed to do. After the excitement Angus sleeps in and our walk round the village is twenty minutes delayed . There is much for Sophie and Angus to talk about at the storm drain. By the time we return home from the morning walk the post lady is at the front gate with a parcel from America. Three bottles of Zymox. A must have for owners of long eared dogs. French customs have chosen to add $30 per bottle import tax on something that should retail for $7 or $8 - presumably to safeguard the French domestic dog ear cleaner industry.
The good news is that Sophie doesn't have her ears cleaned this morning. She is not a fan of ear cleaning.
Great excitement in the village yesterday. The municipal painting team arrive for their annual 'refurbishment' of the villages three speed bumps. One is outside The Rickety Old Farmhouse, one outside the chateau and a double one in front of the war memorial. The speed bumps do not seem to deter French drivers who view them as a challenge to be slalomed over at high speed.
Sophie spends her afternoon guarding the house against possible intrusions by the gentlemen of the speed bump painting team. A PON girls life is one of high adventure and constant vigilance
