I finally got to start reading the current Atlantic magaine. I always start with the last feature, which is a question asked of various famous or knowledgeable people April's question concern fictional houses and which one people would choose to live in:
Not that I am likely to be asked for an answer to this or anyone other question, but it got me thinking in which one I would like to live.
My choice is Weatherbury, the house in fictional Wessex created by Thomas Hardy in his fourth novel, Far from the Madding Crowd. But I cheat a little. I picture the manor house more from the 1967 movie than I do form the book. But I suppose that's all right.
The house is up for sale, but I do not have the four million dollars. Too bad! I would love to investitigate all the room, walk the lovely grounds, and find a good pub or two nearby even though there is a brewery on the premises.
If I were to live in the UK, I would live in the West Country, and this certainly is the right location.
But I like where I am now, and that's what really matters.
