As Sick as a Dog.
This isn't Monty (I didn't take my camera), but it easily could have been.
Yesterday I took Lady Magnon to catch her 'plane in Toulouse, and, as I was to be away from the house for several hours, I took the two dogs along for the ride.
Monty has been car sick in the past, but this was when he was very small, and I thought he'd grown out of it.. How wrong I was.
He vomited about 4 times. Once, when he performed all over his blanket (and himself), I was forced to pull up beside a dangerously busy road, to avoid it being spread all over the fine leather upholstery of the compact Royce..
Eventually I just let him get on with it, and cleaned up when I returned home. Cleaning up VOMIT is NOT my forté.... Yuk and more Yuk.
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!
