Adult toys

No, no - not what you may be thinking!
The Wood family starting from me has a fascination for toys. The kids toy chests were always over-flowing and that continued into adulthood. A toy is anything that is desirable. Shiny. Heavy. Well constructed. The main criteria is that whilst they work, they are almost totally impractical.
I today saw what must be the toy par excellence. It makes expresso coffee. When you may be out in the wilds where everyone demands such a treat. Beautifully made and presented. Makes a very good cup.

And I know a man who has one!
This makes my son the King of Wood toys.
For the moment anyway ....................

Only a dog

I was talking with someone the other day and he used the phrase "Just a dog after all". That was about the end of that conversation. I thought of 'just a dog' I shared things with.

There is more intelligence in those eyes alone than any 'just a dog' commentator has in their whole body. Brighter and a lot more fun than half a dozen Essex Girls.
