Have a wonderful day, my dear, and a most happy and inspired year to follow!

Here's a bit of a Traveling Divorcée for your birthday and hopefully she is to your liking, even when not exactly a Spinster: Anne Blunt, daughter of Ada Lovelace.

I do believe she's not entirely unknown to you (could a Traveling Lady possibly be?! *gg*)

(In my case, when I was about 15, I became inescapably aware of 'Lady Anne Blunt' through my love for Arabian horses, she being an icon - if not THE icon - of Arabian breeding and knowledge about the breed in its native surroundings. More than 90% of todays population of Arabian horses is descending from the horses she bought and bred, which is a staggering figure, I think. I don't know much else about her, apart from deducting she wouldn't have been the easiest of women, so I hope you do not somehow 'dislike' her for holding nasty political views, or anything like that...)

An of course, on your birthday: have a piece of pie and a Tetley (I'll raise one to you too)
