I laughed and cried.

An anglophile and logophile`s delight.

Memorable lines:

I would prefer it if I did not enjoy oranges. Consuming them is a most incommodious business.

This is no occasion for a sport! There’s lace at stake!

Dr. Morgan: All the rest will know the news by tea time.
Miss Deborah Jenkyns: Or sooner Dr Morgan. This is Cranford.

A striking similarity to PEI in that last line

  1. Yep, we’re fans of Cranford as well. That Judy Dench is so versatile! We really enjoyed the new Emma. I like all 3 versions, but this may actually be the best one of all.

    Hi Kathie, Wasn’t it beautiful today. I was busy painting so I didn’t take any pics except from the window-bet you got some nice ones though.Where did you see Cranford-is it on t.v. a rental or the library? I have heard of it but never seen it. I love your previous photo of the church. Take care, Carolyn

  4. I loved the orange eating episode too! I didn’t quite believe it, however, until I found a drawing in a book by George Sand about her and Chopin’s vacation on a distant shore. In the book were drawings, one by her son, of he and his sister eating oranges….or sucking them, I should say. If you want to see this huge waste of oranges…here is the link to my post. I was amazed. http://saraandherblog.blogspot.com/2008/06/how-to-eat-orange.html


  5. I KNOW!!! I Loved the series, it’s on my wish list. Have you seen Return to Cranford…just as delightful as the first (unusual for sequels)blessings,Niki
