According to the local gossip (and a few internet sites), snow is expected within the next day or so: two days of snow, in fact! Here, of course, it means a hefty fall on the highest hills and Mount Mulhacin but, in reality, a mere smattering at our village level, and a coating that will be gone as soon as the temps warm up and sun appears again. So, no great hardship, but a novelty of sorts. J is planning a ski outing at Pradollano on Wednesday after the fall, and hoping for good conditions then.
I wonder what Charlie will make of it: he’s a Swedish cat and used to real, proper snow, rather than the expected wimpy white stuff. Patrick is already flapping because his car – a Ford Tourneo, or some’at like that – is apparently very bad on snow or ice! I’m sure he doesn’t realise how pitiful the snowfall is likely to be hereabouts!
Panda/Rocky folowed me back indoors again yesterday and is now quite friendly and contented. I think I’ll take my chances with her and hope Charlie comes around to her presence. The only problem is that her mother comes and wails at the door when Panda’s in the house, causing her to also wail a bit. No doubt, that will sort itself out in time, though.
Sadly, and inexplicably, Panda’s old buddy, Ginger, seems to have completely disappeared: I’ve looked around, even going up to John Wayne’s finca in search of him, but still no sign! Hopefully, he’s okay and safe and secure with someone.
While J’s skiing, I’ll be taking this lovely 1900 Parlour Guitar off to a Luthier in Granada for some urgent remedial work. The bridge has come adrift, fortunately lifting cleanly, from the body, so needs re-glued. It’s probably because it would have originally been made for Gut/Nylon strings and I use light-guage steels on it. Still, it’s a lovely thing and made from the very best woods – now illegal – of Brazilian Rosewood and American Spruce.
Whatever happens with the forthcoming tempest!!, I’m pretty confident J will not have to get out and labour like this:
That’s All Folks……
