tuesday - keeping fit

keep fit with Sue was well received today; must be the cold weather!!

monday 29th nov

"Chapter 1
James Herriot reminisces about the cold winter days in Yorkshire. He treats a horse with a new medicine and supplements it with an older type, just to help. Instead, the horse collapses, and he and the owner both worry that the horse has died. Herriot fears he added one medicine too many, but just then the horse regains his footing, and the spots he was suffering from are nearly gone. Herriot learns a lesson about using too much technology when the new drugs are more effective."

The residents were treated to a morning of James Herriott stories - read to them by volunteers Elizabeth and Joan.  The stories are very funny and it was a very enjoyable morning for all concerned!
