Another fun Chapter.

-You ladies were right, there is no exact date for Harry and Ginny’s Wedding. As to the gap between the approximate wedding and the first child, Ginny was busy playing Quittich.

-Here is what a Treakle Tart looks like: http://yummalert.com/content/uploads/images/Cookstr/Treacle_Tart-b6bfef-lypjz3zx.jpg I had a friend in school whose parent made them, not too bad.

– Ginny going back for the Diary is perfect foreshadowing.

-Totally right about the poor decision making of 12ish kids. Still, taking off with the car was REALY bad. How did Ron know how to drive? Considering their supposed complete lack of knowledge of anything Muggle-related it is a bit strange. It would make more sense if Harry was driving.

– Many people have had a teacher like Snape. They just dislike you from the get go. Still, Snape takes it to new levels. I know we are supposed to like Snape at the end, but he is just mean and cruel to his students.

– The Daily Prophet is really quick in getting the flying car incident reported and published

– There are no real consequences to the flying car incident. Sure there is an inquiry at Mr. Wesley’s job, but we hear nothing about it. And Ron gets a howler, but we never hear more.

– The car itself has an interesting story; http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1518803/Harry-Potters-stolen-flying-car-comes-in-to-land.html


This podcast brings up all the important questions, such as when did Harry and Ginny get married.

The Wesleys running around reminds me about the beginning of a Home Alone movie.

If only Crookshanks really did eat Scabbers then it would change everything.

I completely forgot why they had to take the car until I remembered Dobby was the one who blocked the barrier.

That was so clever of Harry to save his house from losing points.
