I am completely at a loss as to what to blog on. I’ve had a 5-year cold/fly that has keep me sweating and coughing for going on two weeks now. I’ve had just enough energy to get on FB and snark now and then but not much more.
In honor of the date, 09/12, (American rendering) here is the following is from Persuasion. Chapter 9. Line 12: “…The Musgroves could hardly be more ready to invite than he to come, particularly in the morning, when he had no companion at home, for the Admiral and Mrs Croft were generally out of doors together, interesting themselves in their new possession, their grass, and their sheep, and dawdling about in a way not endurable to a third person, or driving out in a gig, lately added to their establishment.”
A 70 word sentence that tells us Sophie Croft wasn’t about to sit around the house and entertain her little brother.
Good on her. And good for Frederick for not sitting around pouting.
There is not much worse than a pouty guest.
Take care–Susan Kaye
