After a long, exhausting day, I was delighted to return home to fun things in the post. This wee picture of Black Jack Randall in “Outlander” was the one that gave me a much-needed laugh, though. My sharky friend knows that my favorite part of that series is Tobias Menzies’ portrayal of Frank Randall / Black Jack Randall, so she sent me a photo, which I tucked away in my notebook next to my Portland unicorn sticker.
I can’t stop cracking up whenever I see it. It’s like I have a school photo of Black Jack in my Trapper Keeper. XD

Our back yard is starting to look very springy indeed! Here is a new addition, a Winsome miniature rose for our new home in Rose City.
On an unrelated note, my charming husband (and favorite Jacobite scholar) recently contributed his historical expertise to Episode 136 of The Outlander Podcast. You do not need to be a fan of the books or show to enjoy this discussion.
