It must be Wednesday because when we got to the dechetterie (recycyling centre) with a carload of rubbish it was closed, they’re only open on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday afternoons.
It wasn’t a totally wasted journey; we stopped in Villefranche and had a walk around town. Ricky was like a child in an amusement arcade, he was so excited. No fruit machines but so many things for him to sniff and cock his leg against. The stone planters full of flowers along the street are just irresistable to him. I don’t know why we bother taking him on lovely, healthy runs through the countryside, he would much rather trot along the cobbled streets where all the local dogs have previously left their scent.

This evening we have had a thunderstorm and the first rainfall for quite a while. Earlier in the day I picked some tomatoes, beans and peppers from the garden; I’m amazed the garden is still producing.
You called him Ricky.ReplyDelete
Oops! Well, that's what he likes me to call him.Delete
nice garden score! And rain? Whatz that? ;)ReplyDelete
Wet stuff that falls out of the sky.Delete
I am glad that we male human beings don't have to punctuate our walks with urine squirts to mark territory and send subtle messages to other members of our species. Christ - we'd never get anywhere.ReplyDelete
I think some of you do, although the message isn't very subtle.Delete
Wow, that's a nice harvest of veggies for mid October! Lucky you.ReplyDelete
My two dogs love walking around the neighborhood after other dogs have been out to walk. We say they're checking their "pee mail".
Pee mail, ha-ha, that's funny.Delete
That storm was very refreshing, we sat outside and watched as it unfurled. It might even bring-up some mushrooms in a week or so.ReplyDelete
It was short and sweet, some big gusts but I don't think much water came down last night.Delete
Those peppers are beautiful! My peppers are small, slightly curved and still green. They grew 'spontaneously' in flower pots - a gift, so I'm happy to have them!ReplyDelete

They're not as sweet as the fully ripened red ones from summer but still tasty.Delete
