The Maximum Leader

Well... I am pleased to note that I am mentioned in the P-Seal correspondence. Another vote for saddle shoes, and another vote against facial hair...

Mrs. Peperium

Oh Maxy, it was a most honorable mention too.

Mr. Peperium

Speaking of Jesus, I am reminded, as I peruse Sir Basil's Epistle to the Poorly Shod, of what people said when they heard Him (Jesus, not Basil) preach: This man speaks with authority.

Just run the mind over this passage:

"A gentleman will keep his feet shod at all times when in public. He will shod them in leather shoes with leather soles, the style of which is appropriate to his present mode of dress."

Sounds like something out of one of the lesser-known chapters of Leviticus. So endeth the lesson.

Mr. Peperium

Or maybe I should have called it Sir Basil's Epistle to the Shodomites.

Mrs. Peperium

Shod, I presume, in fine Corinthian leather.

Who's Candy?

Mrs. Peperium

This is Candy:

Card's Wife! Where have you been? We were looking for you on the milk cartons!

I just returned from confession.

Misspent

Message from the Black Forest:

Things have gone awry: In two weeks time have left girlfriend, bought sandals (Birks at that), and a pair of the blue overalls that all the workers wear here. Fear blog may be dead forever. Have not been drinking enough. Bad internet connection. Forgetting English.

Good side: Saw operas. Drank a lot of wine. Rarely wear shorts, but is barely 70 degrees most days. Back in a week. More later...

Mrs. Peperium

You've left your girlfriend for a pair of sandals?

Old Dominion Tory

I think the proper sequence of events was:
1) bad Internet connection denied him the influence of the likes of Mr and Mrs. Perperium Sir Basil, et. al.
2) Bought, therefore, "workers" blue overalls and sandals.
3) Girlfriend left.
4) Drinking a lot of wine.

Mrs. Peperium

ODT, you should be a code breaker! Marvelous!

Misspent

Close, sequence was:

1, 4, 3, 4, 2. But the influence of 1 on 2 is correctly put. Perhaps I can recover some lost respect by informing you that I bought a Tyrolean hat yesterday.

Mrs. Peperium

Misspent, if I understand the last communique correctly (ODT, please assist), it appears you are walking around Deutschland drunk, clad in blue overalls and Birkenstocks, topped off with this jaunty hat:

I must say your girlfriend displayed excellent taste in leaving you...

Old Dominion Tory

Misspent, while I am wary of the outfit Mrs. Peperium, it does indication that this moment of solidarity between prolertariat and intellectuals has passed. If he had bought a beret, it could have meant some "summer romance" with the memory of the Popular Front and a few choruses of L'Internationale, drunkenly roared out in a Munich cafe.

Old Dominion Tory

Let's try that again shall we?
What I should have posted was:
"While I am wary of Misspent's outfit, Mrs. Peperium, it does indicate that the moment of solidarity between prolertariat and intellectuals has passed. If he had bought a beret, it could have meant a prolonged "summer romance" with the memory of the Popular Front accompanied by a few choruses of L'Internationale, drunkenly roared out in a Munich cafe."
There, that's better.
