The humour of “Plod”

JL-image002Imagine that you are on a narrow boat on a pleasant day in good company and sharing yarns: for this is the way that the collection of short stories listed below evolved. The story-teller draws on his own experiences, mostly from the time he was a village ‘bobby’ in Trentham (The picture of John pulling a rabbit out of his hat first appeared in ‘The Sentinel’ in 1981).
