All things Western and more.
Did you know, after John Adams retired from the presidency he took to reading (and enjoyed) romantic poems and novels, of the day, such as Lady of the Lake, by Walter Scott and Scottish Chiefs by Jane Porter
Amazed as always.
:)Happy New Year, Jamie.
Yet something else I was unaware of.Have a good Thursday Sandra.Yvonne.
Thanks, Yvonne! Hope you did:)
Oh that someone else didn't do that when your election result was known.
Indeed! My understanding is that reading isn't a high priority on someone else's list.
Good for him. A spot of good reading might help Trump!
There's a thought.
I am so glad he did. And suspect he enjoyed his retirement.
He appears to have:)
That’s great that he loved to read especially books like what you mention.
It certainly humanized him, didn't it?
I love Sir Walter Scott's Ivanhoe
I do too, CJ:)
I didn't know that, but I like it!
Me too:) He normally reads tomes in several different languages.
do you know how many presidents have turned over in their graves after the BS that went down yesterday ~~~~~~~~anyway, hoping 2021 is a happy healthy year for all ☺☺♥3
All of them?Thanks, FSG. Here's hoping it gets much, much better.
Didn't know that. What else don't I know?
I enjoyed it because he was such an intellectual reader.
I didn't know that Sandra!
Who'd a thought, huh?
That's pretty amazing and I sure don't blame him. Perfect way to relax and de-stress. Hugs and please stay warm and safe tomorrow! RO

A mi también me gusta Walter Scott Gracias por el dato no lo sabía. Te deseo un buen fin de semana
Walter Scott was amazing wasn't he?Thanks for the weekend wishes. Hope yours was a good one.
I enjoy your did you know posts :)All the best Jan
Oh thank you, Jan. That's nice to hear.
Nope. Never knew that one.
This I did not know, Sandra. I'm familiar with the "Lady of the Lake" by SWS, but not "Scottish Chiefs" by Jane Porter. I'll have to track it down, because my ancestry is is a roll call of the clans.
