Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses

Yesterday a parcel arrived at home and it was a cardigan that Terry's sister knitted for me, she is very good at knitting cables. I love it !!
