Two Boys; One Dog.
What makes Grumpy not so Grumpy? Having two of my favourite people mucking about in the fields with my favourite dog; that's what!
Monty (now more commonly known as Lumpy) had just found the plastic pot from my newly acquired Clematis Montana, and is playing 'take it from me, if you can' with the boys, who are so obviously glad to be away from north London for a while.
I love to see the boys running free in the countryside. This year even more so because they've got Monty to play with. The photo says it all.
This is why I moved to France with my own children, all those 40 wonderful years ago!
We went with friends to the Scallop festival in Whitianga; a charming
seaside town in the Coromandal District.
Had a great time...5000 people, lots of wine...

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 45 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), a Border Collie/Black Lab' cross called Bok, a cat called Freddie, plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
