Roger found a packet of panini in the footwell of the car. It had fallen out of the shopping bag unnoticed and the resulting hysteria from Dorothy who shouldered her way out of her cage in the back seat like a fat faced drug raiding policeman in order to grab one out of Mary’s mouth would have caused a car wreck if we weren’t stuck in the workman’s traffic lights just outside the village.
The bickering over the crumbs lasted at least 25 minutes so I had a headache brewing when I finally got to the dentists in Llandudno.
After my appointment we all had a walk along the Promenade to blow away the cobwebs and I turned listening to Spotify on my phone as the waves flung spray horizontally into our faces.
I love Max Richters arrangements. Oh my, I'm picturing the dogs leaning in and think I know ( being a soppy owner of 3 dogs!) just how you were feeling in that moment.ReplyDelete
Alison in Wales x
Yes, you have to be a dog owner or a parent me thinks lolDelete
Are your teeth pearly white now John - all ready for kissing a beau x 👮ReplyDelete
Am glad that you were not actively driv driving when the food war started!ReplyDelete
Hope the lovely music and the sea eased your headache. and that you all went home and got warm.
I was once driving the berlingo over prestatyn hil when one dog had the runs and all stepped in it during woofestDelete
ohhhhhh, ick! I bet that was no fun in secewral ways.Delete
You are an old softie.ReplyDelete
I am indeedDelete
The music is delightfulDelete
Sounds like a nice moment, though I can't help laughing at the thought of the dogs scrambling for those paninis!ReplyDelete
The fight was like a Tom and Jerry cartoonDelete
Very tender music.ReplyDelete
It sort of captured the momentDelete
The food fight fiasco has me laughing.ReplyDelete
John - Can you look at your Tuesdays post please because someone is directing personally abusive lies about me xReplyDelete

You paint such wonderful pictures with your words. As others have said many times - write that book! xxReplyDelete
I was on a zoom call with a doctor once, the meeting was about Katie so she had to be there. Katie did everything she could to get my attention away from the computer, including opening the freezer and pulling out a frozen muffin. One of the dogs found the muffin and all hell broke loose, the two dogs fighting over the muffin, at which point I yelled, "Jesus!". I'm sure the doctor was terribly impressed.ReplyDelete
I love that , once Winnie walked up to a woman pushing a pram in the church and pushed her whole head in the stroller shelf. After a rummage she victoriously pulled out a farleys rusk and ate itDelete
I absolutely adore Max Richter’s music. He was composer of the week on Radio 3 the other week and so nice to hear him talk about his passion. He has composed many film scores and he also composed the music for Woolf Works, the newish ballet by Wayne McGregor which is being performed at the ROH this March. Would love to go, but need someone to go with who is just as passionate about VW, MR and the ballet as me! Sarah in SussexReplyDelete
Sarah go on your own if us have to …just go xxDelete
I was sitting watching tv quietly - suddenly my Prince and Herbie were scrapping over a chew - as I grabbed them my finger must have got in the way - resulting in stitches and a wonky nail xReplyDelete
A little heartbreak and the panini Keystone Kops all in one brief afternoon.ReplyDelete
Roger let fly an over excited turd too, but it spoilt the narrativeDelete
That made me spit my tea. :D Tina in west oz.Delete
Oh, John, nothing could spoil your narrative.Delete
Oh John, both amusing and poignant, all in one post.ReplyDelete
I can recommend Voices by Max Richter, the final track makes me cry every time, I love it but it breaks my heart.
I think I was just feeling “ emotional” today , not tired and emotional , just emotional ….the LAST OF US took it out of me last night me thinksDelete
I will have to look up this music, I am a huge fan of Hans Zimmer and the music from Intersteller.ReplyDelete
You are a gentle softie.ReplyDelete
Too much for my own goodDelete
I needed that music tonight. It fit my mood well. Thank you.ReplyDelete
Off to learn more about Max Richter.
Those dogs will be the death of you when you're driving John! I can't cope with two grandchildren bickering, dogs having a meltdown would do my head in!ReplyDelete
Beautiful ! I looked up the composer and realised that he had written some music for Shutter Island, and that really haunting sound was what I was reminded of. It made a deep impression on me at the time.ReplyDelete
oh my god, this music is so beautiful!ReplyDelete
