She thinks it's very funny and keeps reading bits out to me. It's apparently about Terry Darlington and his wife Monica...but really I think it's about their whippet called Jim. The three of them set off from Stone in Staffordshire - not far from us really - to sail their narrowboat Phyllis May down to the sea, across the English Channel (yikes!) and then down the Rhone to the Mediterranean.
|Jim - from http://www.narrowdog.com/ - I think he looks a bit like me|
There's a follow-up book too now - Narrow Dog to Indian River - maybe the L O T H will get it for Christmas.
I am quite happy to leave Jim to his waterways adventures. The bath that is STILL in the back garden is enough adventure for me.
