Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools

My pal, @StephenFrysCat, knows I love to read so he gave me a book and asked me to review it. The name of it was so funny I said yes. It's called Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools and was written by Victoria Twead. She and her husband, Joe, lived in England and Victoria was tired of rain and cold and wanted to move to sunny Spain, so they decided on a 5 year experiment to see how they liked it. This book is about that experiment.

They found a house in a small town in the Andalusian mountains. The house was a wreck and they had to restore it. They had hard times and good times, met lots of interesting people, made some very excellent friends, tried all kinds of new things, and had wonderful adventures. There was lots of trials and tribulations. But there were also lots of wonderful days. 

This book will make you laugh and cry, sometimes both at the same time. The book is a fun read. It's also peppered with yummy recipes, both Spanish and English. Mom's not much of a cook so we didn't try any of them, but they looked nommy.

The book is available as a paperbook or several formats of eBook, so no matter how you like to read, there's a version you'll want.

I give this book a paws up.
