The President of the "Sherton Abbas Women's Guild" was mortified by the outcry in the previous blog entry caused by the lack of appropriate headwear displayed by some "gentleman" members of the community! The wives of the recalcitrant gentlemen in question were summoned to the following week's meeting and told in no uncertain terms that this "embarrassment" could not be allowed to continue. One can only imagine the conversations that took place behind closed doors that evening, but suffice to say there was a marked improvement in sartorial standards displayed on the platform this morning. I surreptitiously took a few photographs to illustrate this splendid change of attitude!

Despite the fact that one gentleman has removed his hat and placed it on the bench alongside him, I have been informed by the President of the Sherton Abbas Women's Guild that she is delighted by this improvement in sartorial elegance and can return with a clear conscience to the more mundane items on next weeks agenda.

 

Until next time ...................

"The wives of the recalcitrant gentleman"

 

How many did he have?  No wonder he was a bounder :)

Topping stuff. Mind you, I still think there is something louche about the chap who has taken his hat off. What exactly is the relationship between himself, the young lady, and the contents of the perambulator?

That's one of the great parts for me of modelling. Time based research translated in some nice story telling.
Thanks Job, glad you enjoyed my ramblings:-)

 

Such rich quality! Beautiful modelling, thank you!
Thanks 5&9 :-)
