Subject: QOTD for Thursday, March 9, 2017 The following quote is taken from Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon, Ch.8. Homo Est Obligamus Aurobe (“Man is an obligate aerobe”) - Hippocrates, Copyright 2014 by Diana Gabaldon All Rights Reserved.

“What in the name of the everlasting Holy Ghost did you do to him?”Mrs. Figg asked me accusingly. “Sounds like he’s about to die.”
“Saved his life, to start with, “ I snapped. “Ups-a-daisy, Your Grace!” and between us we hoicked him up the steps. “Then I saved him from being stoned and beaten by a mob – with Germain’s invaluable help,” I added, glancing back at Germain, who grinned hugely. I was also in the act of abducting him, but I thought we needn't go into that.

[> I love the interaction between Claire and Hal. He tries to be his imperious self and she's having none of it. After dealing with stubborn Fraser's, Greys are a walk in the park . After we learned more about Hal and Minnie it's easier to understand how Hal caves pretty quickly to his demands. He's used to a strong woman and he can't be dense enough to not realize she's saving his life - more than once! -- Kathy in PA, Thu, March 09 2017, 6:53:59

[> I love the by-play here: Mrs. Figg's protectiveness of Hal, her employer's brother, Claire's no nonsense, get it done approach to keeping him alive and getting him safely stashed/abducted, both strong, don't-mess-with-me women. And Germaine enjoying every minute of it, so much like his father. It will be interesting to see the man that he will become, being surrounded by strong (though not in any way overpowering) women all his life. I hope DG keeps writing so we get to see him for a long time. -- DianaH, Thu, March 09 2017, 6:56:44

[> I love how Claire is sometimes a teeny bit irreverent in her dealings with some men....when I read this I almost expected her to give Hal a bit of a rump slap ...lol -- Aussiewench, Thu, March 09 2017, 23:06:08
