A/N - Please don’t feel you have to read this! I’m easing myself slowly back into fic writing and actual stories at the moment are beyond me. So I end up with these short little pieces that go nowhere at all. But I publish them to get over my nerves! So bear with me and be gentle :) And don’t get…

"Please don’t feel you have to read this!"

Um, are you kidding me? How could we NOT read this?

It was just wonderfully sweet and beautiful. I love how Shelagh awoke with her senses the morning after their wedding night.

And who can resist bold!Shelagh at the end. ;)

Never hesitate to post - your writing is lovely!

"I think she comes into season five changed by what’s happened to her. I felt playing her that I wanted to sort of show that there’s just a little spark that’s gone in her, for the time being, that it’s not going to be rebuilt very quickly, because thing like that aren’t. I didn’t want her to all of a sudden sort of be, ‘Oh! Everything’s fine.’ Although she’s getting on with everything in the same way, I just feel like — there’s just sort of a little sadness about her."

A Step Forward

It was Timothy who found it, the worn, dust covered bear. He froze, heart dully beating in his ears and Shelagh, noticing the way his face had paled then reddened all at once, padded over. “Timmy?” she ventured softly. “I forgot”, he breathed, “It was Mum’s.”

What a beautiful scenario of when Tim decided to call Shelagh “Mum.”

photos by gerry ellis from the david sheldrick wildlife trust, a nursery and orphanage for elephants in kenya’s tsavo east national park. here, fifty five keepers are charged with being around the clock parents to an elephant. the elephants, however, are the ones who chose their caretakers; it is the keepers who must ingratiate themselves to the elephants and earn their trust.

when elephants first arrive at the orphanage they are often traumatized from having witnessed the slaughter of their mothers and family by poachers. grieving can last several months, and they often lose the will to live. but as dame daphne sheldrick, founder of the orphanage, explains, a caretaker is charged with “persuading an elephant to live when it wants to die.”

approximately 35,000 elephants are killed by humans every year. with an estimated 350,000 elephants left in the whole continent of africa, they will be gone in the wild within ten years.

cbc’s the nature of things did a program on the elephants and their caretakers. you can foster an elephant with the david sheldrick wildlife trust online here. for more on the emotional lives of elephants, as well as the david sheldrick wildlife trust and other human efforts to save them, check out these posts

Is that the Turner-mobile? And is it a patient’s house or the exterior of Chez Turner?

Here’s Laura Main’s DM interview inexpertly stitched together if anyone wants to see it in its original form…
Angela / Alice sounds adorable. Can’t wait to see scenes of Timothy playing big brother to a baby sister - especially if something she does causes him to screw up his face or roll his eyes.

Thanks for posting! 

Okay, my fellow timeline aficionados, here we go… Near the end of this article, the writer says Laura is halfway through filming the series and filming the Christmas Special now.
Given that journalists have gotten Laura’s age wrong from the beginning and the actors themselves can’t remember some of their scenes, I’m taking it with the teensy-tiniest grain of salt.
But the reference *could* explain why baby Alice is 8 months old — because she’s in scenes beyond the CS — and this little sprog is 3 months old.
I wonder if they shoot all the baby scenes early in the schedule?

Bloody hell, forget I said anything. “This little sprog” is *also* Alice, now identified as 3 months old in this article but by Laura this week as 8 months old…
My observation re: journalism and actors gotchas still applies.

I think one of the things that has to be remembered is that television shows and movies aren’t generally filmed exactly in the order in which they air.  So they could very well have shot the early scenes of the CS with tiny Alice and then waited to complete the episode — shooting other parts of other episodes — so that they could use the same baby when she was a few months older.  Yeah, the timeline is weird and they might be guessing a bit off, but it’s not unusual for actors to begin filming episodes other than the first one that will be aired.
Now: are we gonna talk about Main and McGlynns being in State Fair together? Because my heart may have just exploded.

Yep, I was thinking the same thing - a lot of shows do not film in episode order, but do chunks at a time depending on who is available when, etc.Also in the TV interview yesterday, she said something like “yes we do have ONE now” (meaning they probably had a couple babies play “young” 0-3mos Angela” since they needed a more newborn stage infant for the CS and the little ones can only old up for so long filming).  Maybe they got scenes involving Angela from the CA early on so they could get putting a 2-3 month old through being on set out of the way first and film the rest of the CS later. She also said of baby Alice “I think she’s about 8 months NOW”….meaning perhaps they made her the “regular” baby Angela a month or so ago, starting with the first episode of S4, which likely skips ahead of the CS as it has in the past, so maybe she was 6 or 7 months when she was made the “regular” and is now currently 8 mos?Just an idea.But Laura gushing over Angela’s facial expression when with Timothy? Oh, my it’s going to be beautiful seeing big brother Tim and his little sis.
