There are certain books that I return to again and again - sort of comfort reading. Falling into that category are the books by James Herriot. When I was young, I really wanted to be a vet, and devoured these books. And I keep going back to them - no surprises in them but they still make me laugh and cry.

Dan's tried but can't get them - that's why he knows less about being a "vit'nary" than me!

I seem to remember a series of books by a farmer called Henry Brewis. He was a bit of a cartoonist, I recall. I must try and get hold of one and see if they are as funny as I remember.
