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.

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.

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.

Well if he does he will be in my black book, but i doubt such a maestro could
perform to such depths.

Scones, or scones?



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

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:

Well the pagan decoration is green willow, white gloves are only for the gentry
and your belly button is for me :devil:

Amice,

what a delightful prospect, the contessa and I are elated. She desires to bring the tiramisu. James has already prepared the diligence (no, the coach, you uneducated), although we have to be careful with the stallion. It’s the season, you know. The esquire desires to RSVP, unfortunately, c’est la jeunesse.

And concerning belly buttons, parbleu! honi soit qui mal y pense.
