Life in North Wales with an eccentric Welshman, a dog in the twilight of his years and one in the 'know-it-all' of youth.
"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Curiouser and curiouser
On the agenda for this morning was a trip to a garage to get something on the alternator of the car fixed - or something like that...
And here it is. No it's not a farm, it's a garage. Well, actually, it is a farm but it's a garage as well, hence the hens. What's more, it's on the local industrial estate. Well, we like to keep things rural here.
We brought Paddy too, to meet the nice collie who lives there.
But then, something strange happened. The other dog was not at all anxious to make Paddy's aquaintance but 'shadowed' him as we strolled up and down. Here she is, peeping out at him from underneath one of the cars in for repair. Even more strange, Paddy took very little notice of her, almost ignored her, in fact.
He didn't even bat an eyelid at all the hens roaming around. I'm beginning to wonder if he is sickening for something!
