Restored .

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 .


  1. If you don't give Wilf his own entire croissant pretty soon instead of a sliver, I'm gonna have to come to France and give you a stern talking to!

  2. That bit of croissant was obviously lip smackingly good !

  3. Ah Wilf, 'the font's in her kitchen and all's well with the world.

    Toodle pip!

    PS Gail says apologies to 'the Font' if Bertie's comment seems just a wee bit non-PC.

  4. Good boy - you could go on tour with MIka - (he is almost 4 octaves... ha,ha)
    Happy for Wilfie that his flock is complete and his wonderful fairy of delicious meals is back - to spoil him - more happy endings please -
    love from Southern Italy Susanne, Daisy and Foxiie

  5. It is so nice to have a doggy welcome when you have been away. I only ever had a problem when I owned a Great Dane and he wanted to jump all over me!!!! Diane

  6. Wilfie, your happiness makes us happy. Enjoy your weekend together.

  7. It sounds like Wilf was overjoyed to see the font! I had fun imagining the 3-octaves of song that he caterwauled!

  8. How much i'd like to see Wilfee doing the happy dance ! Why not a video to show us the little boy in action ?
    I wish you three, a lovely Saturday. Bisous to my beloved Wilfee.

  9. That is the face of one happy dog! I truly believe that all is right in his world right now. :) How happy he must be to have his flock all together again!

    I like the statue, but as an expert in the art of Play Doh, I think it looks more like shellac! :P

  10. The Font has returned! The flock is again united. All is right with the world!
    Love to all.

  11. Wilf is so easy to please, his Mom, his Dad and his favorite comfort food all in one place, big tongue hanging out and all is "right" with the world.

  12. I agree about the statue...I'm glad that 'the font' is home safely and all service is restored!

  13. Wonderful that your little family is back together again!!! Wilf now knows what the most important things in life are...the both of you!
    xo J~

    (shame about the statue!)

  14. Sounds like all is right in Wilf's world again. We're sure the font is happy to be home again to prepare tasty dishes for such a precious boy. Love the second photo of Wilf's trusting gaze.

  15. To the font,
    Your goddaughter and the Professor send greetings from the far remote corners of Northeastern Appalachia. Please give Wilf a hug a kiss and a biscuit from us.
    Thinking of you...

  16. What a wonderful welcome home greeting. :) Hugs for Wilf.

    Blessings and Love,
