collies 1_

Usually by now we collies are at the window watching dad plow snow like in this picture.  Mom washed the drapes and cleaned the windows (they get lots of nose smudges for some reason!)In so we could watch our slave, er.. dad plow the driveway so he could get out to go to work to make sure we get fed! 🙂

In front of the window is Trevor…..

Alas, we have no snow on the ground so far…. so the old tractors rests and dad is thrilled for he hates snow!

So, we collies thought we would add a few Christmas suggestions to the Terhune and other books we mentioned earlier!

For Collie Lovers we suggest from the Terhune Memorial Society anything by the person who knows more about Terhune than anyone in our opinion;

Kristina Marshall.  We have her FOREVER FRIENDS and it is a thrilling and wonderful book about all the collies that lived at Sunnybank with the bloodlines coming out of Sunnybank!  This is a must have and just type in Terhune Memorial Society on Google to get more information or type in the book with Kristina Marshall’s name. 🙂 She also has several other book and all of them are GREAT!!!!

For Automobile Lovers;

A great read about the history of Henry Ford, his family through to the early 90’s, the Ford Company and the cars a excellent book is ;

FORD, THE MEN AND THE MACHINE by Robert Lacey

For the best biography about Henry Ford we have read and can recommend volume one of the three volume set by Nevins.  Volume one covers Henry Ford, his family life, Ford Motor Company, the cars and his other activities up to 1915.  It is fascinating to see the beginnings of the Ford Company and how they did all they could do to keep it going until it finally exploded into the beginning of the huge company it is now. This book is: FORD, THE TIMES, THE MAN, THE COMPANY

For Our fellow Footy Fans we recommend the following;

THE OFFICIAL HISTORY OF MANCHESTER UNITED with the forward by Sir Bobby Charlton.  It is by the football team and various volumes go from their beginnings to 2005, 2008, 2009, 2012.  They are all the same except for the year they end.  This is one great book of one great team!

UNITED; THE FIRST 100 Years by Paul Joannou is the best history of the wonderful Magpies of Newcastle!!!!

For Movie Lovers we recommend;

THE QUIET MAN with John Wayne and Maureen O’ Hara

HIS GIRL FRIDAY with Rosalind Russell and Cary Grant

For the men;

Any Three Stooges Films

For the Women;

Any movie with Katharine Hepburn

Hopefully this will help……
