A Quaint English Village

 

I want to visit St. Mary's Mead for a while, maybe even more.  I would like to be one of the villagers who assist Miss Marple, in some very minor way. I'd like to meet her for tea and scones, learning  of details following the librarian's sudden death. I want to know about the frog leaping from the grandfather's clock and scaring the teacher; thus, Miss Marple knows the answer to a mystery where the frog has some meaning.

She passed away a few days ago, age 82
She was feisty.





Dame Margaret Rutherford
She is so good. Worth watching

As none of my dreams will come true, I watch an episode (excellent, too hard to choose). Go to 
List of Joan Hickson's movies . I will be sitting right next to you with a cup of Earl Grey and a scone.

  1. I love it. Love the older stuff(?) but then I guess that is about all I know about. I missed a lot of this. Love the accent, wish for better hearing. LOL
    Love from over here

    1. Closed Caption is the way we go. Other accents are confusing.

  2. The older I get, the more like Miss Marple I become. Agatha Christie was an amazing writer.

  3. I would love to visit such a village and learn the country ways. I would also love to have a sharp enquiring mind that can solve mysteries.

  4. Being of British descent, I would also love to have met Miss Marple. Sadly, I will only be able to watch her on the big (or little) screen.

  6. I always enjoyed Miss Marple books - much more than the Hercule Poirot ones.
    Agatha Christie's memoirs are excellent too.
