Okay, this amuses me.
I popped over to Amazon.com to see if the As Time Goes By DVDs are available in the US. (See how enamored I am with this show.) They are available. Complete set costs $132.99.
As I was reading the blurb on Amazon.com, it occurred to me that it sounds a little like my novella, Veterans Way. Jimmy and Stephanie first kissed on V-J Day when he was ten and she was nine. A few years later, they were high school sweethearts. Then Jimmy went off to serve his country in Korea. Stephanie fell in love with another boy and got married. Jimmy got out of the service, fell in love, married, and didn’t return to his hometown. Fifty years later, with both of them widowed, James moves back to Hart’s Crossing, and an old love is rekindled.
No wonder I like this TV series so much. Great minds think alike and all that. (Except my heroine was 69 and my hero was 70, if my aging memory serves.)
