Well I waited long enough but boy was it worth it !  I have been adopted by a great couple who take me for brilliant walks.  AND (Sue’s note, you shouldn’t start a sentence with ‘and’ Lucien) get this, they have the very   l o n g e s t and biggest swimming pool ever.  It is at the bottom of the garden and the neighbour’s garden and the neighbour’s neighbour’s garden, in fact it goes on for longer than I can see.  I’ve already been swimming but the guys wouldn’t come with me – wusses !
