Clocks forward by an hour over the weekend . Pitch dark when we set off into town on the morning croissant run . Not that Wilf is bothered . He settles down under the cafes corner table oblivious to the jarring neon light and the glow from the television above the bar . Waitress, bowl of water, and illicit half croissant follow soon after . Angus has to wait for his coffee. Here in rural France small, shaggy , polar bears take precedence .
Croissant finished , chat with the waitress done , he puts his head on my foot and drifts gently off to sleep , unconcerned about the noise and bustle around him . Not a bad way to start a new week. '' That which God said to the rose, and caused it to laugh in full-blown beauty, He said to my heart , and made it a hundred times more beautiful " . Old PON wisdom .

Happy Monday even though Angus' coffee service was delayed in deference to wonderful Wilf.ReplyDelete
So, happy new week sweet Wilfee, enjoy this Monday ! Bisous mon tendre.ReplyDelete
Bonne journée, Angus and Lady Font.
Lovely PON wisdom. And hope your day is as beautifully sunny as ours, now that the sun is up.ReplyDelete
So what's wrong with the PON being served first? Wish it would happen with us....we're not even allowed near a cafe.ReplyDelete
XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy
'and caused it to laugh in full blown beauty ....'. Wilfee that's your most beautiful line yet . Iris xxxxxReplyDelete
Our little wonderful Wilfie - you look a little like father Christmas on the first picture...ReplyDelete
Keep on keeping on my dear little fellow we love you - bacetti sul nasino bellone - Susanne, Daisy,Foxiie and Kiri
the light and shadow in that last picture of our beloved wee bear seems almost like a renassisance painting to me. i love it.ReplyDelete
it perfectly fits his lines of wisdom today.
started me off right.
birds are very busy here today. i think they're using megaphones!
many tiny wonderful buildings going up in their neighborhood!
We had the clock change a few weeks ago. The early morning darkness isn's enjoyable -- but we do enjoy the later light in the evening. Always a trade off!ReplyDelete
I love the first photo of Wilf with his furry paws together -- waiting for the congregation to be seated so he can share this particularly lovely bit of PON wisdom!
Wilfie Pon. Beautifully tousled. We adore you. xReplyDelete
Well of course Wilf should always get served first. is there any other option?ReplyDelete
Wonderful pictures today & quote.ReplyDelete
I love that quote today! I'm not surprised that Wilf got first service. If I go somewhere with the dogs, everybody knows us, but if I'm alone, I'm anonymous! I suppose that's harder for you to pull off in France, unless you revert to Swedish! (still laughing about that)ReplyDelete
That last scentiment so achingly touching! Love you, Wilf!ReplyDelete
that PON wisdom should be in a book...toooooo beautiful...sigh.xReplyDelete
Wilf is the MOST impawtant..evewyone knows that..Wise and wondewfulReplyDelete
Mazel tov on the 1400th post - and Wilf's endurance. Looking forward to seeing him enjoy a celebratory gourmet meal for his birthday. Did you ever get the well working, or have you just abandoned it? Doesn't anyone in the village already belong to the co-op, so they could just buy the ice cream and get reimbursed?ReplyDelete
Jed & Abby
Have not had the opportunity to check in of late. Wilf is getting better looking with age, what a darling little bear!ReplyDelete
