The fuel delivery didn't happen yesterday after all. We waited all day, on the lookout for the big tanker truck. No sign of it. The afternoon was fairly warm, and Walt had a fire going in the wood-burnng stove. Now we're running out of wood. We do have a couple of little electric radiators that can help. It's 42ºF outside right now. Meanwhile, I woke to the sound of rain on the roof at about 4 a.m. Bertie the cat just came in soaked. It's supposed to rain all day. Maybe the fuel oil will be delivered this morning.
Here's a short slideshow showing some the animals that were in residence at Carrouges when we were there. That last photo shows our dog Collette at the time. She had traveled with us to the Normandy coast in May 2005. She passed away less than a year later, at the age of 14.
