All Creatures Great and Small.
I could hear the over hundred cranes, that have arrived so far, shouting on the fields this morning. This was the last day with reasonable heath for quite some time so I do hope they enjoyed it. They get fed so they will survive but I doubt they’ll like the ten coming days. We’ll have temperatures way below 0C (32 F) and we’ll get more snow too.
I have bought the first season of the great BBC series “All Creatures Great and Small” and the series is based on the British veterinary James Herriot, or as his real name was James Alfred wight. He started to work as a veterinary in Thirsk, Yorkshire, 1940. Thankfully he wrote a diary and later on he published what he had written in several books (to be honest, much of the stories are only loosely based on things he experienced himself). He’s a favorite of mine and one of my dogs are named after one of his dogs, Hector 🙂
I’ve seen the three first episodes and I think I’ll watch one episode every week so it lasts longer 🙂 Well I’ll watch a fourth tonight since there’s nothing worth watching on tv. After that I simply have to buy all the other seasons too 🙂 Even though they were filmed in 1977 they still are easy to find due to how popular they always have been. If You haven’t read his books I highly recommend them. And Yes Cindi they are sometimes rather sad but there’s so much fun things in them so I think You would like them a lot 🙂
It’s time to start the fire in the stove again, the night will most likely be cold since there’s no clouds in the sky. After that I’ll make myself a sandwich or two and a cup of coffee. Then I’ll go up and watch the fourth episode of All Creatures Great and Small 🙂
Have a great day!
