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.
Yet something else I was unaware of.Have a good Thursday Sandra.Yvonne.
Oh that someone else didn't do that when your election result was known.
Good for him. A spot of good reading might help Trump!
I am so glad he did. And suspect he enjoyed his retirement.
That’s great that he loved to read especially books like what you mention.
I love Sir Walter Scott's Ivanhoe
I didn't know that, but I like it!
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
Didn't know that. What else don't I know?
:)Happy New Year, Jamie.
I didn't know that Sandra!
Me too:) He normally reads tomes in several different languages.
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
Did not know that??? Big Hugs and please stay safe!
A mi también me gusta Walter Scott Gracias por el dato no lo sabía. Te deseo un buen fin de semana
Thanks, Yvonne! Hope you did:)
I enjoyed it because he was such an intellectual reader.
I enjoy your did you know posts :)All the best Jan
Indeed! My understanding is that reading isn't a high priority on someone else's list.
There's a thought.
Who'd a thought, huh?
He appears to have:)
Nope. Never knew that one.
Oh thank you, Jan. That's nice to hear.
A good way to relax, for sure.You stay warm too, Rockin Ro.Hugs received and returned.
It certainly humanized him, didn't it?
I do too, CJ:)
Thank you, Stacy. I appreciate the caring wishes.Hugs received and returned.
All of them?Thanks, FSG. Here's hoping it gets much, much better.
Walter Scott was amazing wasn't he?Thanks for the weekend wishes. Hope yours was a good 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.
