Unlucky for some?

Must say I’ve always enjoyed

Friday the Thirteenth



Footnote – Answer to the quiz in my last post, The Dark Ages.

“In vain have I struggled. It will not do.”*

*Can you guess who said this and which book it is from?


It is, of course, said by Mr Darcy to Elizabeth Bennet, in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, during his first hapless marriage proposal.

“In vain have I struggled. It will not do. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”

Congratulations to the following:

Pam at Butterflysand had the correct answer. Well Done!

Special mention to PG and SWMBO, who guessed Jane Austen and deserve sunbeams anyway.

And A Curious Introvert, who resourcefully found the answer.

Thanks also to Mistermuse for his offer of a very long extension cord so I could plug into power in the next city!

Along with sunbeams I give you all these lovely roses.
