It Is Time

Edit: Just saw that one of the best bloggers in the world, nay, the universe, had preempted my cup love.  Consider this a fanfared follow up.

Five Simple Rules

1. No sandals unless you're at the beach.
2. A gentleman always leaves the house with a collar on.
3. Jeans only on the weekend.
4. Black suits are for formal occasions only (US audiences only).
5. Tshirt & Jeans?  Only if you're doing yardwork.  In the backyard.  With nobody watching.

It really is that simple.

Old Books

I'm a collector.  I love the idea that some wayward individual sat around by candlelight, in 1700's England, France or other, reading the same book I now hold.  Unfortunately, the years have not been good to many collections.  Case in point:  Do any of you out in blogland happen to have the latter two volumes of this set?  I acquired the first and second volume at a flea market of sorts on the outskirts of Berlin some years ago.  Without them I'll never now how the story ends...
Cervantes- Don Quixote, pub. 1782
