The Picture That Started A Book
For years we had a Retriever, a golden-haired, lovely faithful dog that kept us company for 14 years. We got it as a cast-off from some Vet friends we had because it had a skin infection that made it unshowable. So the breeders asked the vet if he could find a home for it. When we saw it we felt so sorry for the little semi-bald thing and said yes. Treatment, creams, ointments and injections cleared up the problem after weeks of care and attention. But underneath that long silky hair as it grew again, the skin remained wrinkled and imperfect. It would never be a prize-winner.
Everton 0 Burnley 1

Carry On Up The Douro Part 2
Pinhao, Barca d’Alva, Castelo Rodrigo; what gorgeous places these were. But we still hadn’t signed Chris Wood or anyone else for that matter even though Sean D was saying he was still keen to sign new additions. Leeds were adamant he wasn’t for sale and even a £16million bid had been rejected according to internet (now back on) reports. And the Chelsea game was looming, early relaxed indifference being slowly replaced by slight trepidation.
Blackburn Rovers 0 Burnley 2
Jack Cork and Robbie Brady got the goals as the Clarets eased past derby rivals Blackburn to book their place in the third round of the Carabao Cup.
