And This Little Pig said A Little Bit of Everything

First the Long Dogs said G'day... Podge, Quincy and Evie.
One of the reasons I've been a little remiss of late, that and well life, a PD James novel I am loving it! As the blurb on the back reads...

In a pitch-perfect recreation of the world of Pride and Prejudice, PD James elegantly fuses her lifelong passion for the work of Jane Austen with her talent for writing detective fiction. She weaves a compelling story, combining a sensitive insight into the happy but threatened marriage of the Darcys and the excitement and suspense of a brilliantly crafted detective story. Death Comes to Pemberley enshrines the qualities her readers have come to expect: psychological and emotional richness of characterisation, vivid evocation of place, and a credible and superbly structured plot, in a powerful and distinguished work of fiction.

I'm about halfway through, and I think I have worked out who the 'real' baddie is, we will have to see if I am right.
Ever get so close to the end of a piece that you start to itch to see it done, well I am almost there with Northern Nights, hopefully this weekend.

I know I have missed a couple of Cow-Day-Wednesday's but below is a series of photos I took last weekend at a special cattle sale, my good friend Sue is moving to China for a couple of years for her husbands work so sold all her cows, including her bull Enzo, who is a real softy, well as soft as a 900 kilogram bull can be, that's just under 2000 pounds. She was feeding him bread.
Well its off to bed, seeing as I started this post yesterday :@

Seeya soon... LiBBiE in Oz
