The Finale! Downton Abbey

Its sad but true. Only one more season of Downton Abbey! I have watched this wonderful saga since it began and I can tell you it is like saying goodbye to old friends. My youngest daughter was the first person to tell me about it. She was traveling and flipping through channels one night when she discovered it. Afterwards, she called and told me about this great show. "Trust me mom, you will love it". Love it indeed! I watched all of season one and two over that weekend.
 Who couldn't love Dame Maggie Smith with all of her caustic remarks and that look only she can do! The costumes, the manor, the manners and the butler! I think Carson is a hoot and I cant imagine anyone but him in that role.
I have relatives in the UK who have already seen the entire season, but I promise they will not reveal anything to me. Last year they were visiting us at Christmas and most of the table talk was what happened on Downton! And couldn't pry a thing out of them. I will be watching tomorrow night and although I cant wait for it to begin. I know how sad it will be when it is over!
Wishing everyone a New Year!

I love this show, too! I can't wait to watch it again! I am sad that it's ending. I will have Season 6 as soon as it is available, so I will have the whole set. I am looking at other shows from PBS to see what I've missed. Happy New Year to you and yours!
