The flight back was only delayed by an hour due to the French air traffic controllers latest five day strike . This is the second closure of the air routes we've suffered in three months so they must be upset about something. Yesterdays flights faced a slew of cancellations so I'm rather relieved we were only held up for such a short time. Having landed on terra firma we now face the problem of gasoline shortages due to the national strike of French oil refinery workers . In my absence 'the font' has been busy bustling around the lesser known filling stations of deepest 'France profonde' keeping the cars full of petrol.
Wilf and Digby are in fine form and are now in a deep, deep sleep after a wildly emotional reunion and much throwing and retrieving of tennis balls.
