Bye Bye Jack

Our friend has returned from overseas and so we sadly returned Jack to her this morning. The arranged time was 10,  but she and her girlfriend were still in bed and sound asleep. Her normally spotlessly tidy place was a mess, strewn with the accoutrements of travel and a nice bottle of Chivas Regal for us, along with a box of Turkish Delight. I wonder which will last longer? My money is on the Chivas.

Myself and R left her place and went to a cafe for brunch. After some quite warm weather, it had turned cold, grey and wet. It did not put us off our scrambled eggs with chorizo , mushrooms and tomatoes and fantastic coffee.

Now several hours later I am hungry and it is still a while until dinner time. Several pieces of Turkish Delight is not like having a late lunch. I'll just have one more piece.

Jack loved the morning sun and no, that is not the remains of his mother on the couch.

  1. Jack is adorable and that's a great photo. If I had that Turkish delight, it would be in the past tense.

  2. I know not every home has the space or time for a pet. But the joy of an animal is endless.

    When the children were young, we had a kelpie collie cross, a beautiful dog who lived for 14.5 years. Then a handsome black labrador who was more special than most of the relatives. He lived for 12 years.

    1. Lively is a good word John, but chirpy chappy is nice.

  6. Awww... returning him to his number 1 pack must be quite painful.
    Have a piece of turkish delight, it should make you feel at least a little bit better.

    1. FC, some many hours later, I'd better check that household management hasn't consumed it all.

    1. That would be sad Merle. I think you really enjoy having him there. So far, no one has yuk about Turkish Delight.

  8. re lovers of Turkish Delight: visiting recently, a friend offered Rose Tea. It tasted like turkish delight (do Turks just call it Delight?)
    It was loose tea and appeared to be tiny rosebuds.
    She got it as a gift, and it was not in it's original packaging, so I am now looking for it anywhere. The one at ALDI is not roses don't fall for it.

  9. Em Stacks, they probably call it Foreign Delight and it is rare that they will ever eat it. The tea sounds interesting. When we returned Jack, they offered us some Turkish Apple Tea and it wasn't too bad.

  10. And of course we treated the doglet well. R missed his company today.

  11. Marshall Stacks; rose tea? I'll have to look for it in our specialty tea shops, there are a couple that have sprung up in Adelaide in the last couple of years. I love turkish delight, but not that awful cheap stuff from the Reject Shop. Jack looks to be a maltese terrier or at least part. Is he? I saw a longer haired version this morning on my way home from voting, so white and fluffy, like he'd just had a bath.

  12. What did you change with your comments? The reply to each individual post is gone! I just emailed you the header - I moved the font again, hopefully this file behaves itself!

    Jack is very cute.

  13. Fen, I think I may change it back as I really dislike it like this, but Jah Teh said she can't comment with the previous format.

  14. River, I think he is part Maltese and part West Highland White Terrier and part Shitzu.
