Three day quote challenge: day two

Judy at Edwina’s Episodes asked me to join this challenge and here we are, already at day two. I said, yesterday I wouldn’t nominate anyone I lied. I finger my brother, the Archaeologist who blogs at the Curious Archaeologist. Do check him out.

Because he’s my brother and he so owes me, big time, I’m not making this easy. I want three quotes, brother, that link Jane Austen, The Venerable Bede and Patrick Moore. Ha!

    Yes brother, I will accept your challenge, though – as you declined to post the rules, I will make some up myself and post my responses in a few days.

      I got into such trouble with dad for that, mucking up a perfectly good picture. Those were the days of rolls of film and expensive developing…

        Oops, sorry, pressed send too early!
        My parents recently unearthed boxes of old photos… Nothing like holding a proper photo and giggling at the memories! Though as they are a bit far for me to pop home of an evening,Mohegan take pictures of the funny photos and send them via Whatsapp to my brother and I!!
