White shutters , green windows .
After what seems like an eternity the freshly painted shutters are safely up . Now the process of painting the windows begins . To our surprise the immensely tall painter doesn't use a ladder to work on the first floor woodwork . Instead he just opens the windows and clambers out onto the ledge . " Are you comfortable up there ? " , ' the font ' asks . " Just fine " comes the carefree reply . Angus quickly checks the accident section of the household insurance policy .
Up at five this morning to get ' the font ' off to the airport . A full weeks French language course in the middle of nowhere . A flight to Rennes and then three hours in a rental car . This leaves Wilf and yours truly in charge of the kitchen for the next six days . As we head home the family fellow has a look on his face that seems to say " let's get the sausages on . Opportunity comes but it does not linger " .
