Subject: QOTD for Tuesday, March 7, 2017 The following quote is taken from Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon, Ch.6. Under My Protection, Copyright 2014 by Diana Gabaldon All Rights Reserved.

I love the combination of passion and humor that DG brings to her characters as she takes us through dramatic moment after dramatic moment. This week will illustrate this lovely balance of desperate caring and humor.

I dropped the locking pin into its slot with an instant’s satisfaction and straightened up to find Fergus’s eldest son, Germain, standing by my side.
“Have ye got a bit of trouble started again, Grand-mere?” he asked, unperturbed by the stones – now augmented with clumps of fresh manure – whizzing past our heads.
“You might say so, yes,” I said. “Don't - “
But before I could speak further, he turned round and bellowed at the crowd, in a surprisingly loud voice, “THIS’S MY GRANNIE. You touch ONE HAIR on her head and – ” . . . . . “and I’ll do you BROWN!” Germain yelled. “Aye, I mean YOU, Shecky Loew! And you, too, Joe Grume!”

[> So sweet the way Germain steps up for his Grandmother. And calls some of the scoundrels by name so that they KNOW he knows who they are! -- Marcie, Tue, March 07 2017, 18:51:17
