The squinty eyed rodents (whistle-pigs) are unsure once again. My fly-away hair, scaley heels and brittle nails agree that winter is not done with us yet.
Spirits are high and bright in blogland I see. Mostly sharing the comfy food and aroma therapy trinkets to ease us through. I do peek at the overview stats from time to time and amazed by the countries that have been curious about puddleduck grange. The tiny lights on the world map constantly entertain my imagination.
Keeping with "focus & finishing" several blogland friends, guessed the "who's who?" in my last post.
Emily Post of course! Why did this come to mind you ask? or not, Well..... many years ago I was asked by an employer if I would be interested in a box of books he was discarding from his garage. Of course I would be.....what jumped out at me was this elegant book. The employer was very taken back that I made such a fuss about him discarding this BOOK! He didn't know what I was going about nor did he care...."never heard of her or this book" he said and quickly waved me and the box out of his office.
Action speak louder than words they say (those wise "they") Clearly his lose and a huge reminder from "beyond" that this standard should not be discarded.
FYI for those who did not get beat for using wire hangers, "The Blue Book of Social Usage" is the standard for living gracefully. 1922 until today.
A Quote of interest..."far more important Who you are, than What you appear to be"
Never mind rolling your eyes, it is important. The Library of Congress believes so .
The book is a delight to read, mine is 9th edition from 1957. Thankfully Emily's great,great grandaughter, Lizzi Post, is caring on this standard . If interested please visit www.emilypost.com/lizzie-post
I could go on and on , I believe that money cannot buy "charm" (ethics, good manners, kindness towards others... whatever you wish)
Not the kind of "charm" that will stick anyway
Thank you for playing along and another interesting name "Emily Pankhrust" was past on to me. www.rosalily.blogspot.com Hmmm Let me grab some cake and lets see who's who?
