Eliot is a master at waiting!
As soon as the vehicle stops he's bolt upright and ready to bark or play as the mood takes him!
Seriously, how does he know?
I can work at lots of things on the computer and he doesn't take any interest but as soon as the meal is on the tracking screen he's alert and waiting. It certainly puzzles me.
I wonder do the different web sites emit some kind of high frequency noise that sounds different when Domino's is booked? It is most peculiar behaviour.
But then ... he is a very strange dog.
For him Sunday must be the worst of all days ... he's left alone for the morning services ... hardly sees me at all in the afternoon ... and then I head out to an evening service and abandon him again. Yet still he loves me!
Today was enjoyable (for me, if not for Eliot). Although the wild and wintry weather kept all but the most hardy souls at home there was a lovely atmosphere in church and I really didn't notice the smaller numbers once we started. It probably helps that folk are dotted all over the place so it looks more populated than it really is!
Tonight I was preaching somewhere else and they had quite a crowd at the evening service. That was a good experience too and the sound system is very efficient. Even better ... there was coffee and cake afterwards and it appeared that most people stayed for that and for some conversation.
It is going to feel a bit odd to be off next Sunday ... though I know where I want to go to church ... this is the second of my summer Sundays!
The featured turtles today are part of the Wade Porcelain collection. According to E-bay the bigger one is rare, but I'm not so sure about that. It may simply be that the seller hasn't seen another one!
