Off to Toulouse airport to collect ' the font ' . Wilf does his welcome home dance in the arrivals hall . He circles round three times to the right before reversing direction and circling round three times to the left . He finishes off by repeating the original movement before flipping indecorously onto his back.
He always used to be the strong, silent type of dog , content to leave the histrionics to his little brother . No longer . The welcome home was accompanied by a range of feline like noises spanning at least three octaves. A tall man in a black suit , standing waiting for his family , laughs aloud and says " someone's pleased to see you ! " .
Stop off en route to buy wine and have a coffee at the cafe . The statue on the war memorial has come back after being cleaned . The town council had the bright idea of painting it . This was a mistake . The colours ran . It has now been restored to its natural state although the stonework seems to have been treated with a high gloss varnish which make it look as though it's made of Play Doh .
Wilf has a sliver of croissant . Normal service restored . One content boy . As he knows : Every day is an opportunity to make a new happy ending .
