A dab of terrine ..

A post coffee and croissant trip down to the old roman road . Wilf zig zags along . He's learnt that when his paws are touching tarmac he's safe and there's no danger of tumbling into a drainage ditch . When they touch the grass verge - time to change course . So we go , happily zig zagging our way past the cows and the old farmers even older tractor .

Home to watch Scotland play rugby . Its night time in New Zealand but nine in the morning here . They're singing the Georgian national anthem ( very rousing ) when the mayor arrives , followed by Sebastian the joiner and Phillipe the plumber . '' We were just passing " the universal excuse . ' The fonts ' crab and lobster terrine , meant for lunch , is finished off . Scotland win.

To celebrate Wilf has some terrine on toast . Angus and his visitors a glass , or two , of champagne . After they've gone Wilf spends five minutes trying to lick off a dab of terrine that's got stuck to the end of his nose . There's a look on his face that says " you only live once ; but if you live it right, once is enough".



    What a nice walk you had
    And what a nice day.


  2. Riley is wondering who stole his life Wilf...enjoy Fluffy boy. Two kisses on the nose for you this morning x

  3. Terrine. A little dab'll do ya!!

    I'm not sure they had that commercial in Scotland, but trust me. It's very apropos! :)

  4. Wilf you are so lucky. Terrine on toast to celebrate yesterday's great victory. And all I got given was a piece of chewy tripe. I guess it's 'cos Gail's English...
    Toodle pip!

  5. Lobster terrine - Toby the russian globe trotting JRT had a little ice cream for the first time - following Wilfs example - and he was so happy -
    Daisy is answer barking in the garden to the neighbour dog - and Foxiie says Hello - getting greyer around his eyes - I count his grey hair once in a while - love from Southern Italy Susanne, Daisy and Foxiie
    I learn to live with a dog that has less sight

  6. Snacking makes the rugby go faster. Enjoy your walk Wilf.

  7. I suspect that Wilf has lived a life that most of us would envy. I don't think it's much of a mystery about why so many people just drop in at your house after reading about some of the local food concoctions!
