Let’s get the bad news out of the way first. Due to the fact that there won’t be a new episode airing on Sunday, and that it’s Spring Break, I probably won’t be posting anything on Monday, or it will be super short. But like I said on Wednesday, let’s be cautiously optimistic, and distract ourselves. Go have some fun, get some sunshine, watch a good movie cuddled in a cozy blanket, do whatever you need to do to bring you a little happiness.
And speaking of happiness, I found out that it’s someone’s birthday today, someone who brings a LOT of happiness to us #Hearties. I posted about it on the main fan page, but in case you missed it, it’s Elliott Wallach’s birthday today. Elliott, who is the president of Edify Films, and brings us so many amazing products for our enjoyment. He doubles as a comedian, entertaining everyone he talks to with his quick wit and thoughtful words. Okay, so it’s not an ACTUAL job, but with his proficiency at it, it SHOULD be! 😀 So Happy Birthday Elliott! We #Hearties love you, and all the swag you provide!
Speaking of birthdays, we have a little bit of unfinished business to tie up, don’t we? Last Friday, we celebrated #FlashbackFriday with a Hickam Highlight. 😉 But it was someone else’s birthday last week too! So now it’s Faith’s turn! Time to feature Andrea’s lovely talent!
Let’s flash back to Season 3, when Faith splashes onto the scene, and makes her first appearance in Hope Valley. She certainly caused a stir! Everyone sees her as the competition. Elizabeth just can’t “trust her with Jack”, and Rosemary seems to think her incapable of caring for Lee’s injured foot.
Then Faith shows us not only her spunk, but her creativity and ingenuity. She’s there to do a job, and she’s very committed to her work, not to mention competent. However, someone quite…persistent is in the way; someone who “played a nurse on the stage”, but thinks she knows more about treating patients. But Faith out foxes her, and in such a way that everyone, except Rosemary, can’t get mad at her. Lee is so delighted for a break from her “helicopter nursing” that he laughs out loud! And Faith, at least for a moment, makes Rosemary feel very clever with wanting to test the bell. But to quote the old 1982 British Jane Seymour classic “The Scarlet Pimpernel”: “Alas, a moment was all I could spare.” That’s all Faith could spare before locking her out of the room so Lee’s foot could be properly treated. Well played, Nurse Carter!
Well Hearties, time for me to jet! Spring Break has begun, and I promised my kids some fun! By the way, my Facebook account was NOT working properly on Wednesday, so I wasn’t able to share the second half of the Ben and Andrea interview in as many places. So be sure to go to Wednesday’s post after you finish reading. And as for my signature farewell, I think we need it now more than ever. So, this is Hooked Heartie, signing off! May your heart let your hope blossom!
