Dog Day Afternoons

Captain Midnight here in the post-Christmas doldrums.

The pack was supposed to be cavorting on the beach in Lyme Regis this New Year but we stayed in London instead because Herself has hurt her back and, not to be outdone, Himself has “a terrible cold and a cricked neck.” They’ve been sprawled on the couch for days, moaning and groaning, though I notice that they still manage to get up to pour drinks and stuff themselves on leftovers. 226 more words

Sunday 17 December 2017

Captain Midnight here reporting from the wilds of rural Gloucestershire.

Himself woke up late this morning. In fact I had to jump on him before there was any sign of life. 292 more words

En plein puissance
