Very disappointed

My daughter has just informed me that she has been learning about Jasper Fforde in school. I was quietly congratulating myself on sending her to a school with such a broad education when she went on to say that "he invented the first car and he was American".

Ah well - there are some things that are best taught at home LOL!


I come from Wales where it isn't ALWAYS raining.

Well, at least there is a Mr. Ford that is an American who has his name on a bunch of cars - that is a good start! And Jasper likes cars (I wonder if he's ever owned a Ford? a Fforde?), so I can understand the connection.

I suppose that young Mercedes will be surprised that she needs to change her name to "Model"

heheh, nice. Although the day I found out that a Jasper Fforde book was on my little brother's VCE literature reading list, I was pretty happy.
