Madame Lulu.

The weather forecast on the back of the local newspaper predicts heavy snow and freezing temperatures . A mass of angry black clouds and blizzard symbols filling the top half of the page . The second ice age comes to France Profonde . Instead we're greeted by blue skies and warm , gentle , sunshine . The waitress brings Wilf his illicit half croissant to our table outside . He gets a hair tousle . Rain , sun , snow . He's happy .

The bottom half of the local papers back page is filled up with the horoscope. By nature and upbringing Calvinist Angus is deeply dismissive of such things. However, today he finds his eyes drawn to Madame Lulu's eccentric pronouncements on love, life and health. Madame Lulu writes in a strange subset of the French language that is unique both in its style and content. Exclamation marks scattered round the page as if they're going out of fashion. Today's outlook is true to form .

General Outlook : Some unknown elements will energize you !!!
Love Life : Passionate !!!!!
Health : A tiredness in the extremities ! Watch out for your allergies !!!!!

Angus can't help but think that number three somewhat hinders number two. Wilf being a sensible old PON takes the view that " It's not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters ".


  1. Oh, that last photo.
    Roxy and Timber.

  2. But surely number three comes after number two...Actually it all makes sense when I think of a story my parents told me about their honeymoon in Dublin when the dye in some special crimson satin pyjamas my mother had purchased specially for the 'occasion' apparently gave my Dad a rather embarrassing rash.....

  3. We gave up on horoscopes when it kept saying SHE'd reach HER career highs on Sunday. It was either that or give up the job.

    XXXoOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  4. I am also really dismissive of horoscopes, I prefer fortune cookies! ;-)

    Whatever Mother Nature brings you, enjoy your Tuesday!

  5. Thank you for your old pon proverb - especially true for me at the moment - love all the fotos of my favourite polar bear in the world - love Susanne, Daisy, Foxiie and Kiri

  6. 3 may be a consequence of 2. In fact they seem to be sequential!

  7. *bursts out laughing* Perhaps the tiredness comes afterwards!

  8. Re: General Outlook- is Madame Bay due soon? !!!!!!!?

  9. Thanks for sharing those lovely photos of the beloved Wilfee.
    Bonne journée à vous trois et bisous à mon tendre Wilfee.

  10. perfect pictures of wilfee! i reserve my best exclamation points for him!
    i'm with ina in alaska... has madame bay left the locale?!!
    love and hugs to the dearest three in france profonde.
    (uh... that would be the font, not mb) with my two favorite guys.
    tammy j !!!

  11. I wonder if Madam Lulu is a blogger!!! We are somewhat prone to exclamation marks!!!

  12. I once had a similarly befuddling experience with an Asian horoscope. It read, "Hope the longest price to come your way". I'm still trying to work that one out.

  13. The sun is just now brightly shining through our clouds. We are forecast rain for the afternoon and evening - still way too warm for January going into February.
    "He's happy." One of my new old dogs is Peanut. Peanut has a lot against her - mammary tumors, yeast infection all over, hyperplasia of her eyelids secondary to resolved entropion, older than dirt, yet her spirit is indomitable, her tail wags even as I dose her eyes with ointment. She has an Wilf attitude - life is for the living and I am living it!

  14. Those are alot of exclamation points!! (see!!). Wilf is looking rather lovely in today's photos! What a handsome boy! Keep on going Wilf!

    With love from your Canadian pals,
    Dianna along with Tor, Willow and Tucker

  15. Creative weather forecasts and horoscopes prove that the best use of some newspapers is when the pages are used for wrapping fish and chips.

  16. Was it that lulusomething bobble hat you were wearing yesterday that made you alight on Madame Lulu???

    We do agree with those who have written that 3 comes after 2.


  17. I had a great fortune cookie fortune that told me my television would not need repairs for five more years. It worked! Thank you, Angus and Wilf, for sharing your daily news - always a pleasure.

  18. When the weather forecast calls for snow and cold and you get sun and warmth, it is a really good day. Hugs for Wilf.

    Blessings and Love,
    Janelle, Maggie Mae and Max
