Old Dominion Tory

Like Sir Basil, I am as nutty as one of Mrs. Peperium's fruitcakes (that is if she ever made a fruitcake). And, for that reason, I find Patum Peperium such a happy place.
I'd like to see it restored to the idyllic place, the electronic Eleysium, where Black Velvet-pouring maidens, Mr. P's poetry, Catholic apologetics, Evelyn Waugh, Jane Austen, Bruce Catton, John Keegan, Clubman grooming products, Louise Brooks, Sir Basil's tailor, and Mrs. P's recipes live in sun-dappled equanimity.
So, I respectfully ask Emily, the Silent Observer, Reverend Chelsea, Kenny, and others to toddle off to wherever they live in the Northeast and lovingly nurse and loudly discuss their grudges toward the Grand Duchess of our own Fenwick, Mrs. Peperium and her consort, Mr. Peperium in an entirely different place.
Now, I understand that, as New Englanders of Puritan stock, you might be alarmed at the idea that somehow, somewhere, someone is out here in the ether having a good time. But, you seem to have made your points and exhausted your rhetorical ammuntion. Now, therefore, would be a good time for you to leave the leafy environs of Patum Peperium and for us to put all of you out of our minds.

To say nothing of the dog...

Old Dominion Tory

I thought we weren't going to mention the dog. Ever. Again.

Mrs. Peperium

Old Dominion, I do make a very nice fruitcake and it is full of pecans. It's not Martha Washington's receipt so it actually tastes very nice. Maximum Leader is also not a devotee of Martha's fruitcake, if you recall.

Sir Basil, wonderful to see you around these parts, again. You've been missed. Perhaps, if you have time you too could try your hand at Father M's poetry contest?

I'll must start thinking of the prizes we can pass out.

Fr. M.

Prizes. Hmmm. Let's see. I have some DVD's here. How about "The Exorcism of Emily Rose?" That would be a great prize...

Mrs. Peperium

That might work.

Father M, signing off now. I'll see you in the morning. A post on behalf of Mr. Poulos is up for tomorrow.


First place gets a life,

Second gets a book written by an author who can actually get publshed,

Third gets a free weekend in the loony bin.

The Maximum Leader

Father M. That last comment on prizes made me laugh.

Mrs P. Sorry. Still not a Martha Washington Fruit Cake fan. But I do have a craving for pies right now...
