Well, I am at the airport awaiting my flight. My original flight was cancelled … but as it happens I was at the desk and there was ONE seat available on the later flight … and … yes … I got it! Serendipity.
What’s even MORE spooky is that my brother is on my new flight too! Ha! He doesn’t know I am invading his space! Ha!
SO – International Happy Day … well … all was good until I was sent this Tweet. PLEASE PLEASE only look at it if you have a strong constitution. It’s a photo from China and shows a man (!) taking the skin off a dog while the poor dog is still alive. I am not sure why he is doing this … or indeed if he is a man or just a pile of moving excrement … but it has upset and angered me rather. If you do look at the Tweet, please reTweet to express your ire. https://twitter.com/P4Ani…/status/578844997073653760/photo/1
OKAY – so – I am quite excited to be back in Dubai and to see some dear friends and do some work too.
I was rather peeved to leave home today as in the park in front of my house, the bi-annual horse trials are taking place (second only to Badminton, so I am told) and in the gorgeous sunshine, the sight of these elegant horses jumping over fences was amazing.
Tomorrow is International Poetry Day – AA Milne, Shakespeare, Shelley – I wonder which poem I will choose?
Song of the Day:
THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE –
The Bare Necessities – Baloo (the smoothest bear in history) & Mowgli (me) –
oh … okay then ..!
Happy – Pharrell –
