President Bidens trip to Poland to mark the 1st anniversary of the Ukraine war, tonights State of the Union speech, a state visit by Britains new king to France, Chinese balloons and earthquakes in Syria and Turkey among this mornings topics of conversation with the super smart Los Angeleans. While I talk Sophie dozes with her eyes and nose facing me through the curtains. The rest of her is invisible. From time to time her tail thwacks against the patio doors as a ' do get a move on' reminder that we have a village to go and check.
The days now getting markedly longer and brighter. After talking to the Los Angeleans Angus looks out of the window and quietly marvels at the pallets of this mornings sunrise.
