An old PONs Saturday sagacity .

Summers arrival has brought with it blue skies , much needed heat and the first wave of tourists . The parking spaces around the market square now dotted with Dutch and British number plates . Large Jaguars and Volvos interspersed amongst the battered white Citroen and Peugeot vans of the locals . At the cafe all the outside tables are taken by northeners , their pale skin rapidly, and by the look of some of them , painfully , en route to lobster red . The anglo-saxon addiction to sunshine . Wilf settles down next to me in the insurance mans office as we discuss the landslide . He's quite happy to go anywhere just as long as one of us is beside him . After five minutes the family fellow is asleep , on his back , snoring gently . The insurance man , being French , quite used to dogs coming to visit . Business over , Wilf joins me at the bar for a bowl of water and a croissant . His take on this mornings meeting . " The large print giveth, but the small print taketh away " . An old PON's Saturday sagacity .


  1. I think he used a bit too much gel in that second picture! :)

  2. Weather report shows us about the have a three day heatwave here in GB! I am starting to dream about sunshine.

    There is nothing like a tax man for taking the shine off a sunny day.

  3. Glad summer has returned and you're drying out!

    I continue to be envious of your being able to take Wilf practically anywhere you'd like. Yesterday on my way home with the puppy, I carried him inside with me at one stop where there was one gasp and other looks of shock and surprise that I am quite sure had nothing to do with the puppy being so darn cute!

  4. Your orange daylilies are putting on a
    great display. Hard enough to absorb the
    fine print of a policy in ones native

    Yes, Wilf, I think Jack Daddy is right
    about the gel, cute on you, though.

  5. We love the "spiked look" on Wilf. :) Happy to hear that beautiful weather has arrived.

    Blessings and Love,
    Janelle and Maggie Mae

  6. love the quote for today... i meet with my insurance 'adjuster' next thursday morning at 7:30. there's already been on the news a scare alert that there's a "tremendous shortage" of roof shingles, due to the outbreak of tornados across the country. oh well. the blue tarp is rather fetching... madame bay would probably approve! love and hugs to my special little guy.

  7. the small prints always messes things up.. who reads the small prints anyway... did someone startle him in the second pic? hehehe

    hugs to the fluffy :)

  8. Wilf, you're looking especially cute this morning...

  9. I wish the US would allow dogs to go as many public places as France does.

    Wilf still looks like his handsome self.

  10. I am happy to see Wilf looking so cute and still enjoying life! We can all learn a lot from him!

    So sorry to hear about all of your house damage; had the same problem from a Nor'Easter last year, what a pain but thank goodness it is only a house and stuff. Lucky for you that you have such a wonderful companion to make it all seem better.

    Have a nice weekend.

  11. I envy Wilf being able to go into so many places with you! *sigh* We can't even walk through outdoor village festivals here.

    It's always the small print!

  12. You breakfast at the same spot throughout the year. You're a regular. Is it possible to get a reserved table for Wilf?

  13. i'm sorry to hear about the landslide at your house. what a mess! wilf's right about that small print, unfortunately...i hope things are righted without too much trouble.
    i love the second picture of wilf! bed head and a big black nose...two of my favorite things! :D
