"In need of a tonic?"

Then look no further!
After reading this book I just had to drop'these people' an e-mail. These people being Terry, the author, Monica, his long suffering wife and Jim, the opinionated and whimsical whippet.
And here's what's great; I got a return e-mail the following day telling me of the next forthcoming book to be set in Florida, again on their narrow boat, The Phylis May.
Back to the book in hand though...
Narrow dog to Carcassone is to date one of the funniest reads this year. Terry is a retired (but never retiring) reluctant adventure-seeker. After a rash decision to take the Phylis May across the channel, Terry is filled with a mixture of fear, regret and obligation. He has told people of his plans, who in turn have told more people... a.s.o.!
Their adventure as they travel across the channel and down through France are a must read. Terry's humour is second to none and his wife Monica has to be admired. And Jim, well read this book for yourselves and make your own minds up.
Bytheway, my sister snaffled my copy so quickly that I'm unable to give you the desired quotes... If you do get this book, I'll be surprised if you're disappointed.
One last word, you don't have to be a pensioner to appreciate this rib-tickling yarn.
