This morning he was charged and ready for action . We raced through the light industrial park, visited the fire hydrants by the railway line,made a high speed circuit of the town square and were at the beer and absinthe cafe by six thirty. A bowl of water and a 'Bonjour Veelfie' and it was time to buy the croissants and get the morning paper. As we were about to leave a batch of freshly cut asparagus was being delivered to the greengrocer. He beckoned me over to tell me that the sweet sugars in asparagus turn to starch within hours and that these had been harvested barely an hour ago. We will be having asparagus for lunch.
Thank you all for your comments yesterday. We roared with laughter reading them . Yes, it is quite illogical to assume that flies wouldn't land on an upturned spoon.
