Pretty Stamps .
A misty start to our Monday morning . I'm just lifting Wilf into the back of the the car when the Post Lady's van arrives with a screech at the front gate . She usually comes at lunchtime but today she's here at the crack of dawn . Wilf barks . '' You've got a parcel from Canada " she shouts out from the drivers seat . '' You don't get much mail from Canada " . Angus makes a mental note that it is quite impossible to keep any secrets in a small French village . The Post Lady pulls on the handbrake and thrusts a large brown envelope out of the window. '' Pretty stamps " , a smile, and the van hurtles off , gravel scattering in her wake.
Susan, the highly talented artist at www.29blackstreet.blogspot.com has sent us some cards from Nova Scotia. Her Christmas design printed up in larger format as a greeting card . The unmistakeable outlines of two PON brothers looking up at the night sky . How thoughful . How unexpected. What a good way to start a new week. A dog blog world where old fashioned courtesy and kindness still rule . I'm still smiling when Wilf gets his half croissant . What was it Churchill said ? ' We make a living by what we get , but we make a life by what we give '.
