A busy start to the day. Angus talks to men in dark suits about Nord Stream 2, Joe Mancin as the next W.Virginia governor and the leisurely roll out of the vaccine in France ( the UK manages in a day and a half what the French do in a week ). Angus would really like to get back to see the dentist ( words I'd never thought I'd write ) but can't make travel plans until he's had the jab. At this rate it's goiong to happen in November.
The electricity company helicopter flies over checking the power lines after the recent gales. Great flying skills but a noisy wake-up call for the villagers. It's just as well we're up and about because the security company is on the doorstep at seven thirty. This is a surprise as I'd only phoned in the fault last night. The technician lives in a neighbouring village and has opted to schedule us as his first visit of the day. He is not a talkative man so we have no indication of what's caused the system to go down. Sophie takes a keen interest in what he's doing but soon tires of him when it becomes apparent he's not brought biscuits. The repairman works diligently and quickly. The surprising thing about France is that half of the workmen are of the 'best in the world' variety. The other half aren't. The builder and pool repairman fall in this second category.
It's hardly surprising that after the helicopter wake up call and the arrival of a repair man Sophie feels the need for a quick nap on the doorstep in the start of day sunshine.
This is something I don't get :https://monolithtracker.com/
It is highly improbable Sophie will ever appear in something like this :https://www.farfetch.com/fr/shopping/women/moncler-x-poldo-cape-pour-chien-mondog-item-16177366.aspx?storeid=9339
