  1. Love that quote! I'm listening
    to Shepherd's Abiding and read it
    four years ago to my mother before
    she passed away. Into Jan Karon's new
    book on Father Tim going back to his
    childhood home~~ halfway through.

  2. I was just thinking I'd go get it from the library and listen again. I think it is on the same tape as Esther's Gift?? What a nice memory, and what a wonderful thing to do, Bonnie.

    I will be so interested to see what you think of the new book. I keep waiting for some blogger to write about it, but haven't seen it yet. I was going to rent it from Recorded Books but wanted to hear a bit about it first.

  3. Nan: It always amazes me when people like the same things I do. Jan Karon's Mitford series is a favourite of mine. I also love Peter, Paul and Mary! - Puff the Magic Dragon -

  4. I've never read anything by her, but that quote makes me want to now.

  5. Yes, the tape has Esther's Gift and
    The Mitford Snowmen at the end.
    I'll blog on Father Tim's childhood home sometime. It's a bit different
    than her other books, but good. Need
    to get to the end.

    I did follow your tag! You made me smile! Never gotten tagged before!
    Quite exciting!

  6. Nice to hear from you, Peg. I miss your blog.

    Bellezza, I really love her books. I'll be interested to hear what you think if you begin reading them.

    Thanks, Bonnie!

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
