The Intrepid Trio.
You've heard of the Secret Seven and the Famous Five, now meet the Intrepid Trio.
Yesterday they came with nets and buckets; they were in search of Lizards. Luckily ours tend to be high up on the wall, so they left empty handed.
Then later they returned with a Hamster (girl with hat), and Lady M gave them a bunch of brand-new, unused, T shirts. We always have a ready supply of such things (!?!).
The girls often pop round to see us. Occasionally they take Bok for a walk (he used to belong to the girl in yellow), otherwise they just bring some unusual pet, a new friend, or a favourite chicken. Sometimes there are more of them; anything up to about seven. Sometimes just a couple turn up.
Not so long ago there were no children in the area, now suddenly there are about 8. They have chocolates for Easter, chocolates for Halloween, and chocolates for Christmas.
HEY ..... I'M BACK ..........

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 (except the obdurate and dictatorial) is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 50 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live between an ancient cottage in a tiny village in perfectly tranquil French countryside, and a bijou townhouse in Brighton UK. In France we have plenty of fruit trees, all situated amongst a view that takes the breath away, in the UK we have a handkerchief sized patio. We also have a Border Collie called Billy. 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!
