    Great links. I haven’t read Jacob’s Guinea Pig diaries yet. Will soon. I bet any tv show would be a hoot. Irish Country Doctor arrived yesterday so thank you again.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. They’re going to turn The Guinea Pig Diaries into a TV show? I wonder how that will work? I enjoyed the book, although I didn’t love it as much as I thought I would. I haven’t read anything else by him yet.
