As feared the archaeologists are likely to become a fixture in our lives. They plan to return with a specialist. The rather dull piece of sandstone with a figure carved on it is thought to be old. Really old. Some sort of pre-Christian fertility symbol. As soon as the archaelogists had gone Wilf sauntered over and christened the ancient stonework . A " what's all the fuss about " look on his face.

The part that only a fool leaves behind.
'The font' goes into town for some turkey escalopes and returns instead with half a kilo of " sot-l'y-laisse ". According to the butcher the most delicious meat to be found on the bird. Turkey oysters to you and me. Otherwise known to the French as " the part that only a fool leaves behind ". They make a delicious pie. Would it be possible to buy turkey oysters at a butchers in the UK or the US ? Wilf loves the pies pastry edge . Human food. Incomparable. Right up there with coconut ice cream and cauliflower cheese.
The family PON was not hugely impressed with the regional archaeologists. Two thirty something gentlemen in plaid scarves.The more junior of the two asked me if Wilf was vicious. I looked at the old fellow lying upside down, paws pointing heavenwards and replied ' not usually '. Clearly not natural dog folk.
