P.G. Wodehouse

Letters from Hill Farm has a birthday
tribute to this British author today,
I have a few of Wodehouse but haven't
read them. Have you?

That reminds me of Emma WOODhouse!


I like my soul the way it is. It may not be
the sort of soul that gets crowds cheering
in the streets, but it suits me.

The Cat-Nappers

For as a dancer, I out-Fred the nimblest Astaire.
Jeeves in the Morning

The great lesson we learn from life is to
know when and when not to be in the
center of things
Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves

Wodehouse...yes, I went through a Wodehouse period about 35 years ago or so. And used to watch Jeeves and Wooster on PBS maybe 15 years ago, or was it 10? I forget. Bertie Wooster was played by the actor who now plays "House" which I never watch, but know of. Very different character!

Saw a Wodehouse play at the Theatre by the Lake in Keswick England this summer - it was fantastically hilarious. Loved it.
