|Our lovely Jane (Anne Hathaway) and Tom (James McAvoy) in BJ 2007|
Sunday, 8 February 2015
We were supposed to post this quote last weekend but I got caught up in a deadline hence I forgot to do that. My apologies to Linda, and belated happy birthday too! (I did congratulate her in FB on time, but not here...) And yes, Linda, you have every right to brag that you live this long! Love you!
I recently ran across this item about the Jane and Tom "affair" and I hope I haven't posted it before. So here goes.
On the Pemberley website there is a page about Tom and Jane. It covers the letters written by Jane and her family, books written about Jane, and the memoir by her brother. It covers a lot and presents a very good case for what "may have been" or not.
You may visit that page and judge for yourself: CLICK HERE.
I will whet your imagination by quoting Jane thusly:
You scold me so much in the nice long letter which I have this moment received from you, that I am almost afraid to tell you how my Irish friend and I behaved.
So, as Jane says, "I leave it for you to determine."

PS: Just a note to let you know that today, as I type, January 30,2015 is my 74th birthday -- and at that great age, I don't mind telling it - just bragging that I lived so long. hee hee.
