From the moment we married, Dal and I have been watching Detective Barnaby in Midsomer Murders. We love the ambling easy going pace that the show offers. Detective Barnaby is always cheeky and a gets a bit cranky when others aren't keeping up with him.
I fondly remember watching the show on ABC once or twice a week when I was pregnant with Isabel. I could never make through an entire episode and would fall asleep usually as Barnaby discovered the second murder.
This evening we started watching the thirteenth season on dvd. I love having the rush of feelings that strong memories invoke. Barnaby will always hold a special place in my heart because it has always meant that Dallas and I have stopped life for a while to just sit, relax (maybe sleep) and just BE. Always with Barnaby and his sidekick.
