To Vermont and beyond!

Lol, around here….inhabitants of Gloucester and Weymouth probably never visit the other’s town.

The Talk Like Jane Austen Quote of the Day:
“Weymoth is altogether a shocking place I perceive,without recommendation of any kind, & worthy of only being frequented by the inhabitants of Gloucester”
Letter to Cassandra September 14, 1804
Pirates and Planks???? Jane and the Jollyrogers??

Ahoy! Today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. In the e-gallery, this portrait of Captain Hamilton sets the mood. Please join in the day’s parodic silliness by adding a comment in the voice of “Austen-if-she-had-talked-like-a-pirate-that-day-in-1813.”

Another great find by All Things Jane Austen!!!! I was just going thru Emma Approved withdrawal!!

A great scene from “Becoming Jane”!


‘High Tea’ by Alexander Hugo Bakker-Korff (1824-1882)
