I wonder where these people have bought their nice wigs...

And Tod, what is it with you and women with red jackets and tricorns?

Cheers,
Henrik

Indeed. And I must say that women wearing 18th century riding suits look fantastic!
As you say, Tod: We're sexy! We're the 18th century! :D

Cheers,
Henrik

That gothic Georgian lady was looking for that "certain someone". If you weren't in your early twenties, couldn't quote Shakespeare at length, didn't have (intimate) tattoos, and didn't speak like a BBC announcer she wasn't interested. A bit like having a shopping list. Not sure if being single mattered so much :shock:

Frankly other the tattoo's I think I could pass all the other stuff. Well maybe not the Shakespeare, and OK I look a little over 20, but the BBC takes any one these days.
How did dhe react to middle aged northern short bloke with no tats? :lol:

She didn't have a great reaction to a wafer thin middle aged midlands bloke with long hair, even if he did know a bit of Shakespeare... 10/10 for effort Gerry :P
