Subject: Quote of the Day for Sunday 10th January 2016

I volunteered at very short notice so haven't had time to think too deeply and come up with a theme. This week will be a random selection. Mainly light hearted, quite often humorous.

The following quote is taken from A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana
Gabaldon, chapter 20 ‘Dangerous Gifts’ Copyright© 2005 by

Jamie and Claire are discussing the past and their time at the abbey.


“ “Oh and what about you?” I asked, wanting to distract him from the memory of St. Anne. “Didn’t you like me?”
“Oh, I liked ye fine then,” he assured me. “I maybe like ye even more now, though.”
“Oh, do you indeed?” I sat up a little straighter, preening. “What’s different?”
He tilted his head to one side, eyes narrowing a bit in appraisal.
“Well, ye fart less in your sleep,” he began judiciously, then ducked, laughing, as a pinecone whizzed past his left ear. I seized a chunk of wood, but before I could bat him over the head with it, he lunged and caught me by the arms. He shoved me flat in the grass and collapsed on top of me, pinning me effortlessly.
“Get off, you oaf! I do not fart in my sleep!”
“Now how would ye ken that, Sassenach? Ye sleep so sound, ye wouldna wake, even to the sound of your own snoring.”

[> [> The most endearing part is that this is NOT young love. ABOSAA is when they're in their 40s and 50s. :) -- Lady-Jane, 08:54:37 01/10/16 Sun
