Laughter Lines, Life from the Tail End by Sue Vincent. ISBN 9781910478097
I finished reading this last night, and it was a real treat.
It was Sue’s recent blog entry ‘Brunch’ that triggered me into ordering this book, mostly in support of the current Carrot Ranch Rodeo Classic, but also because Ani looks so much like our Maggie in some pictures, so I might be a bit bias!
I ordered it on Monday and my delivery date was Friday 5th February. It actually arrived on Thursday 4th, so I was well pleased and read the first two entries more or less on receipt. The book itself wasn’t expensive, photographs are in black and white, and this particular issue was published in Poland.
I chose to read it at night, winding down from whatever the day had thrown at us. I read them to Hubby, and he laughed out loud too, some of them are so funny.
I can identify with bath times and getting more soaked than the dog, sharing food, and woeful brown eyes that are oh so achingly familiar. Through Sue’s verse, I can visualise ‘The Small Dog’ getting her way, fun and play times, scrounging and pilfering, and then we have the human stuff of hair dyes, bad backs, cold toast and gingernut dunking.
