  1. I stopped by and said “hello” this weekend but my corporate network “firewalls” Historical Tapestry which is puzzling. What is more civil, appropriate, and harmless than anything having to do with Jane Austen? I’ll try and stop by in the evening perhaps.


    1. Jeffrey, are you going to the JASNA AGM in Ft Worth this coming weekend? I’m dying to meet you because you bring comments that are so worthy.


  2. I agree with Jeffrey. I love that we are civil, appropriate, and harmless. When my adult sons niggle me about my admiration of Jane Austen, My response is,”Well at least I’m not down on the corner dealing drugs.” ( Like I ever would even know one if I saw one.) But, they get it, and have a little bit of a laugh at it. I am so attracted to the civil, appropriate, and harmless.
