I can't sign off here without praising 'Intrepid' -
Both as the troll 'Russell Street' & the troll 'Chet' I found him to be a fascinating man to 'engage' with.
Russell & Chet were both obviously 'creations' along with various others (Bronco B.R., et al) -
Intrepid's final analysis of...
Go on Rich - Mention the ultimate happy English marriage - Mr. & Mrs. Harold Nicholson! I wouldn't dare. :)
If I could scan it I'd share my Grandfather's cartoon "Sackville-West goes East" with you.
Random thoughts while my medication kicks in -
Fogey women read a lot & are a bit horsey. Or at least they used to be.
Very sporting girls - No-nonsense, down to earth, great organisers - They keep they Fogey world ticking over.
Very practical girls, nothing ever too fanciful about them...
Oh show me a Gal who wears heavy brown brogues,
with her hair in a bob and some length to her nose,
and I'll show you a lass who's on fire 'neath her clothes -
Hurrah! for the Fogey Ladies!
Off for a little light medication now -
Dear Harris -
In the same way that my grandmother used to talk about people being "One of nature's gentlemen", I think, with great respect, that you must have been born one of nature's fogeys, Sir. :)
I doubt that I could tempt you to do anything, but the missing part of our exploration...
We could probably break this down, just for fun -
Preppy = The Prep school years (Duh! as youngsters might say! :))
Ivy = Those college years.
Mainstream Trad = Young executive (in whatever field).
Fogey = Glorious full-tilt Trad-to-the-Max at whatever age that kicks in...
Exploring Fogey & Preppy has been fun...
Looking at 'GTH Clothing' and the 'Boston Cracked-Shoe look' has been really enjoyable also...
Anyone else missing Trad?
Anyone else wanting more 'Ivy' style?
So this thread is Back to Basics -
To all the names we know & love,
to all the core...
I'm late saying welcome, but I want to say it anyway!
I think it's wonderful that so many new recruits are coming forward, so Welcome to the Club, Bronco BR!
There are no 'dumb' questions - It's only dumb not to ask a question. Don't be daunted by anything or anyone here - you will always...
