smile.gif Hi folks!

I know I am very late to be putting comments in this thread but I have read most of the series. I picked up a copy of my Mom's one day and just kept reading. I thought Dragonfly, Outlander and Voyager were wonderful stories very well told.

For some reason, Drums of Autumn just lost me. I still haven't finished it, but plan to try again in the future. We have the entire series and maybe when I try to pick it up again, I'll go back to the beginning. There is no question that Diana Gabaldon is a terrific writer.

I hope you don't mind a guys comments, but I believe in reading good books. I don't much care whether you call them romance, mystery, suspence or anything else. A good book deserves to be read!

I really enjoyed them tremendously! I will reread them again when I know the next book is coming out. I don't think it matters if you are a man or woman, to me, she is amazing in reguards to writing biggrin.gif

gcw57, I know several men who read these books! Like you say, a good book is a good book. We were all so happy when Diana was *finally* able to get the book stores to change them from the "romance" section to now "historical fiction," where they really deserve to be.

Hello all Diana fans. I wanted to share with you some photos I took this past weekend. I am part of the Arizona chapter of Ladies (and gents) of Lallybroch. Because Diana resides in AZ, we were chosen by the National Ladies of Lallybroch to present Herself with one of the stones that are made and purchased in Scotland to help build the new visitor center at Culloden. Hope you enjoy the photos.

Vanity note: The photo of me and Diana is horrendous of me! I had just finished up a weekend of 1745 Jacobite re-enacting at the local Highland games and my allergies were full blown and I look I stuck my head in a bowl of dust! laugh.gif

here are the pics! Enjoy!

Thanks for taking the time to look and glad you enjoyed! We did have a wonderful time, but the other patrons having dinner seemed a wee bit annoyed. oh well. tongue.gif I had to crop one of the photos cause one of the restaurant patrons insisted on being in our photos and making faces and gestures. Really annoyed me! dry.gif even after I had explained to her and her family what was going on. Oh well. Can't please everyone, eh? I wish we had had our own room, but it wasn't possible in the restaurant we were in . Really excellent food though!

biggrin.gif Those are really terrific pictures, CelticRose!

Diana always looks so young and happy in pictures - could she be time travelling or some such?

My sister brought over the latest book for Mom today, so after she's done with my Steve Berry book, I think she's going to be somewhat unavailable in the evenings!

Hey gcw57! Did you happen to see some men in the photos? Yep! They have all read the books too! Glad you enjoyed the photos. Someone asked me about further information regarding the stone presented to Diana. They wanted to know what it was made of and where it was from. I had the mistaken idea they came from Scotland, but apparently I was very wrong. Here is the info from our fearless leader of the AZ Chapter of Ladies of Lallybroch who tonight gave me this info concerning the stone presented to Diana. I will put her response in quotes.

"It's made of granite and I have no idea where the granite came from. The original (DG's was a duplicate) will be placed in the walkway at the Culloden Visitor Center after the restorations are finished."

Hope that helps clear up some things. smile.gif

smile.gif Thanks for the update CelticRose,

That's pretty cool that the original stone will be placed at the Culloden Visitor Center. As terrible a place as that was in history, it's one of the things that I'd most like to visit if I ever get the opportunity to see Scotland. While I'm no expert on anything, the culture & history of places always interests me and I am a museum visitor as well. I like to return home from trips somewhat smarter than when I left.

I did see the men in the pictures! I was just elected publicity person for our Highland Games coming up in June so between that, our medieval dinner and Robbie Burns Night I get the pleasure of hearing the pipe & drum corps several times a year. I much prefer them outside rather than in. biggrin.gif

My nephew kilted up for his wedding last year as did his Dad and a single piper leading them down to the lakeside. Most impressive!

I don't know how long it will take Mom to read the latest book, but I think it's time I tried to get back into the series. Happy days!

Sounds terrific! gcw57! Good on you and your family! Let us know if your family are hooked enough to get autographed books and buy Claire rings! wink.gif biggrin.gif

unsure.gif I know I shouldn't ask this, but I'm going to anyway. What would be involved in getting autographed books? That might make a nice gift for either Mom or sister.

laugh.gif Several of my bookcases just groaned!
