    Prius one chilly Monday morning and headed of the mountains climbing higher and higher until we reached snowy ground and were above the clouds We stopped for lunch in Ellensburg then headed south towards Yakima and Oregon Round about Goldendale on the Washington Oregon border we were shrouded in fog and unfortunately weren t able to see the Stonehenge replica We stayed the night on the Deschutes River at a sleepy lodge We may have been the only guests The inn in Maupin provided an interesting if not entirely nourishing dinner and local color We showed up at the ranch about 10 30 the next morning It was bitterly cold Jeanne met us at the front door of her house on the ranch compound We all made a bee line for the wood burning stove We had a tour of the stables the museum and the shearing shed and the shop and heard the rich history of the ranch The morning ended with a bit of a shopping spree three bags full and a couple of steaks The trip reinforced my dedication to working with local yarn and created a stronger bond between Jeanne the Imperial Stock Ranch and Helen Sharp Knitwear Thanks for being such a wonderful hostess Jeanne You might notice the absence of sheep from the photographs Apparently they were a mile or so up the valley If it hadn t been so darned cold we would have taken a tractor ride up to see them Tags Imperial Stock Ranch Tags artist bad idea books childhood christmas color craft Dickens england family film fonts food holiday home Imperial Stock Ranch iris murdoch knitting learning liberty of london london music nottingham O Brien people press pretty darn cute rest rufus seattle shoes shop surfing tacky knock off tall

    but I usually am at least fascinated and drawn to the main character even if they are really awful like Charles Arrowby in The Sea The Sea I didn t care either way for any of the characters here I think Rainborough had the most potential but he was kind of off to one side in the plot and was conveniently shunted off to the south of France when the hit the fan I can t remember the name of the main female character but she was such a selfish person and didn t seem to care for any one not even her poor tortured brother I loved the description of the house in Italy or Spain towards the end it was an oasis of calm after the chaos of London The story was neatly tied up in a bow at the end which was quite annoying because every one had been in such a mess We never found out what happened to the jewels One thumb sideways Tags books iris murdoch Under The Net Posted August 2nd 2011 I finished reading this book this morning It was the first novel Iris Murdoch wrote and I had not read it before It had a freshness and lightness that isn t in her later books The protagonist was a male writer prone to laziness and impulse and alcohol There is no drowning Although a couple of times I thought there was going to be I wanted to get out a map of London while I was reading it and follow the characters around Paris played a small part too It is very funny in places I loved the scene with Sammy and Jake betting on the horses and getting drunk There is a ridiculous dog napping where Jake and Finn couldn t get the dog out of the cage it was in and they decide to take the cage too in a taxi The word indubitably appears once about 3 4 of the way through I always wait for that word in Iris s books and very rarely wait in vain I am pleased to know that it was a favorite of hers right from the start I liked all of the characters normally I don t really care for any of them Writing about it makes me want to pick it up and start all over again A lovely read Tags iris murdoch a word child Posted September 29th 2010 Just re read this Originally read when I was in my early 20 s Didn t remember a single thing about it It is a true Murdochian treat The many characters hook up unhook and rehook with the same or a different character Peter Pan features as a panto and a statue London presents a mostly cold and dismal back drop There are warm and lushly furnished drawing rooms and perfumed women in mink coats and woolen dresses There are the usual odd meals tongue and mashed with banana and
