Left to right above are: Ruby, Mango, Guy, and Lucy.
Guy having slight problems with Mango (who is easily the most strong willed of the family). Took the photos in the private car park behind our house, as Lucy and Guy gave the dogs a little exercise before they drove (or rather, were driven) home yesterday by their parents. It was a lovely weekend, and things have seemed very quiet today - still, we all made the most of their flying visit; and we shall be seeing Sarah and Mikey on the 5th of next month - to celebrate Sarah's 'Big Zero' birthday- it would be ungallant of me to specify further. Meeting halfway at the Fire Engine House.
I've just had to reopen this blog entry because Ann's just reminded me of an incident on Saturday evening that should be recorded :- Ann was serving out supper at the bar that divides our kitchen from our small dining table, and I was taking the laden plates to table, and spilled a few peas when handling Guy his plate. Now Guy, who will be fourteen in a few days time always appreciates a joke (even his grandfather's jokes can make him chuckle) but I've never known Guy make a joke, well not a verbal 'funny'. I apologised as his peas bounced across the table, and he said :-
"It's all right Pa. You know what they are now?"
"Peas ?" I said.
"No", Guy replied. "They're peas that have got away. They're escapees", and collapsed into a fit of schoolboy giggles.
Can't think who he takes after?
