In the midst of all this excitement the two joiners, Yves and his wild haired Irish sidekick Ross, arrived at the front gate ( unannounced) and asked if it was a good time to come and measure up for the library. Why not? The more the merrier.
As the last of the workers left Wilf and Digby each settled down with a well deserved rice cake .Satisfaction shone from their faces.They had shepherded twelve workmen, stood on the edge of a malodorous precipice without falling in, conned the joiners into throwing the yellow ball and tracked down some wonderful new scents. A truly glorious canine day. Yours truly didn't enjoy the day to quite the same extent but certainly relished the sedative effects of the first of what proved to be 'several' glasses of rose.
