Not from you Tod, otherwise I might be in danger of having them.

And "havana", not pink. Pink would clash horribly with my eyes - or sick come to that.

The guy who is making them knows all about making them for my particular saddle. He does them at a very reasonable price, and he has a very full life outside of re-enactment so to be fair, I can not begrudge him the wait.


Young men have often been ruined through owning horses, or through backing them, but never through riding them: unless of course they break their necks, which, taken at a gallop, is a very good death to die

And just who is that handsome gay Jacobite blade and bonny fighter, parrying the dastardly thrust of that mean and underhand Government officer?

Gosh and lawks a lordy...'tis me! I am 'at home' for autographs (just a mere ten English pounds a scribble).

You have created nothing.

You have just nurtured and brought out his inner cad.

"So...Mr.Booth...You see yourself as a Monster chasing yourself....could this reflect some deep inner conflict?"

Andy, I hope you managed to avenge his most brutal treatment of me during the sunday battle at Cliveden. He thrust his "poking spit of Spain" into my torso, thus disabeling his senior officer to give me quarter and an opportunity to be publicly executed. I just love public executions!!!

Cheers,
Henrik
