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.
