Been watching Channel 5's All Creatures Great and Small. I don't like it as much as the BBC version. The sets are too perfect and pristine, the costumes the same, there is less focus on the clients, less focus on the animals, and it doesn't feel as authentic. Gone is the Yorkshire dialect, too. It's too polished.

It also doesn't remind me of my elderly relatives, all now gone, who lived through that era, nor does it remind me of how vets were when I was a kid. That world is gone. It probably suffers from the lack of input from people who lived in those times. Robert Hardy who played Siegfried in the BBC version actually knew Tolkien and C. S. Lewis.

Spent the afternoon decorating a hobbit house in LOTRO. I used some Rohan windows as built in cupboards. Didn't know what to do with them, really because there wasn't room for them in the Rohan house. Sometimes you just have to be creative with housing decorations.

It seems I managed to tire Max out today. Good. Means that I get some peace this afternoon.
Took Max out for a very good walk today. He needed it, and it exposed him to new things. My dodgy leg muscle is stiff now.

Lovely work. The pictures take me back to my childhood and tuning in to The Animals of Farthing Wood.

It was one of my favourite shows during my early teens. The images are either what I've found while searching google, or they are from digital copies of Farthing Wood Friends.
