Today's quote is also from "A Collector's Edition-Selected Excerpts from An Echo in the Bone". by Diana Gabaldon. Copyright 2009

Today, we skip a bit through the story to this:

"Fraser's Ridge
March 1777

The world was dripping. Freshets leapt down the mountains, grass and leaves were wet with dew, and the shingles steamed in the morning sun. Our preparations were made and the passes were clear. There remained only one more thing to do before we could leave.

'Today, d'ye think?' Jamie asked hopefully. He was not a man made for peaceful contemplation; once a course of action was decided upon, he wanted to be acting. Babies, unfortunately, are completely indifferent to both convenience and impatience.

'Maybe,' I said, trying to keep a grip on my own patience. 'Maybe not.'

'I saw her last week, and she looked then as though she was goin' to explode any minute, Auntie,' Ian remarked, handing Rollo the last bite of his muffin. 'Ken those mushrooms? The big round ones? Ye touch one and poof!' He flicked his fingers, scattering muffin crumbs. 'Like that.'"
