What did you get for Christmas? Well, one of my gifts really made me laugh. Downton Tabby! From my friend Nina! She is so funny. The book always makes me smile when I look at it. I have it on a shelf with other books above my computer. It has a place of honor among the two books I've illustrated and the books that my friends have illustrated.
I was wondering what to post for Random 5 Friday and inspiration clawed! Downton Tabby has some catty quotes. But since the real thing is being aired right now I picked some Abbey quotes from this season. And I had a little help while I was setting up this post. (See above) So I photographed my lap tabby. I use the word help loosely.
Here are some new quotes from the cast. But hands down Violet has had the best zingers over the years.
"I wonder your halo doesn't grow heavy. It must be like wearing a tiara around the clock."
"The business of life is the acquisition of memories. In the end that's all there is."
"Are you thinking of getting married Dr. Clarkson? Because if you are, you're a better man than I am. Gunga Din."
4) Lord Gillingham
"It's not complicated. I've made a long journey to ask a short question. Will you marry me?"
"Sometimes I don't know who I'm mourning for-- Matthew or the person I used to be before I was with him."
Stay tuned for more!
