    Gentle men put on your best bib and tucker, laddies ware your best glad rags,
    it is best you do not wear long skirts, "24 inches above the knee would be
    best", On arrival at the gate old ned, " a wanted footpad who arrived at our cott one rainy nigh", and we took in for charity", will guide you the five mile walk, to
    our humble abode, on your journey you may note the bubbling brook, the weeping
    willows and the gorse full of bloom, on arrival at our cott, you will be greeted by
    mama, pater myself, benji, " my redsetter cross wolfhound", and wol, my pet
    ram , i will be serving cucumber sandwiches, scones with cream and preserves
    to delight you, teas from around the globe, and pastries that make your taste
    buds dance.
    After your repast, crude entertainment will be provided, pater, on his jews harp and me with my lute. and after that anything goes.

    Well if you do, you can drink it in the barn :biggrin: this is a refined tea
    party, and not for any old riff raff :biggrin: i will join you when my guests
    have retired for the night :devil:

    What a splendid event! I'd give my right arm to be there. Of course that would make tea drinking a struggle because I am right handed.
    1,200 thousand miles of land, and a rather large ocean, stand between me and my acceptance, sorry, perhaps another time.

    A minor complication, that could easily be overcome, i could send old ned
    to pick you up.

    I will send old ned to fetch you, i fear that you will have to cook on our ancient
    aga, but blueberry scones are to good to miss.

    you know if you add 4 inch high heels you'd have the making of a great horror story.

    But yes, send Ned 'round to fetch me, I'll be ready and waiting.

    Please don't tempt me with sherry.

    I'd better stick to tea. Strong, with a dash of milk, please, good sir.

    Mmmmmm, thank you, I needed it since I just woke up a bit ago.

    I had to look up Aga, I see it's a range, I wasn't familiar with them. I hope Zz doesn't burn the scones.

    Scones, or scones?



    Wait a minute, they sound different, but look the same?!! When did that happen?!

    I could be lost for hours in rooms of antiques..and your etchings would most likey require a private viewing. :blushing:

    My lady, anything can be arranged, at wolrams cott, maybe even a nocturnal
    sherry, when all have retired.

    24 inches ABOVE the knee? I guess a crop-top shirt that shows my belly-button counts as a dress in your neck of the woods. :eek: :bugeye: :eek: I'm in. :devil:

    Can I still wear a fancy hat and gloves? I'm still deciding upon the best combination of foliage and woodland creatures to guild and place atop my hat. What's the proper thing for tea parties nowadays? Must I wear white gloves? The tea and jam stains are so dreadfully difficult to remove. I'd prefer ones more colourful (see, spelled that proper British-like and everything). :biggrin:
