Early Thornton for Tuesday


I really don’t know what to expect from the next few days, weather-wise.  We may get hit, we may not. We may lose power, we may not. The generator should arrive tomorrow. We’ve done as much as we can do to prepare, I think. Thumper Cat is once more by my side, my tuxedo-clad, three-legged butterball who provides such comfort and amusement, trying to do her part.

 Here are some images from North & South because I need something lovely and sweet and life-affirming to look upon.  Maybe you do, too.

  1. These all made me tingle – particularly the gif!! *guuuuh* Can you imagine having someone looking at you like THAT and kissing you like THAT?? All I can say is, lucky Daniela. *swoon*

  2. Yes, Angie, I always do, and I can always look at John Thornton and Margaret Hale. I have especially loved your New Hope selection because of its crucial importance in the story, John’s final understanding of Margaret’s uncharacteristic behavior which has so hurt him, and because it displays RA’s exceptional acting skill, wordlessly touching us with Thornton’s changing state of mind.

    I hope you are not suffering from the storm. It seems to be going in another direction. It has passed by my son in St. Pete, FL, but I have more friends in NA (northern Alabama) and the Florida panhandle. I heard that it will cover a wide area, and with what severity, who knows?

    Be well, careful, and safe. You and yours are in my thoughts and prayers.

    • “He was her brother . . .” It certainly answered a lot of things for Mr. Thornton, didn’t it? I love the beginnings of that smile and the dawning light in his eyes.

      That’s the thing with hurricanes– unlike tornadoes, they can affect a huge amount of territory. They can also be dormant whereas a tornado is “wham, bam, thank you ma’am” swift and brutal. Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi have all declared states of emergency in advance of the storm. We are just getting wind right now–the real stuff hasn’t happened yet as the storm has not yet made landfall.

      • You and Benny are constantly in my thoughts and prayers as this hurricane moves. I hope it fizzles out or goes back out to sea – anything to spare people from injury.

        I have slowmoed the “He was her brother” scene and it wonderful to watch how he changes at the realization of what that actually means for him. His frown disappears and his face seems to light up! He plays it so beautifully yet in such a subtle way.
