Today I bought an ancient pair

of knickers at the antique fair.


I must confess I’ve never seen another pair with such patina.

    Oh lol good write and pic M. Say no more! Or it may become swoony. (our indecipherable repartee - bit of French there?!)

    Did you wear them? Or are you a collector???

    • Michael Edwards

      Oh I wear them - but I take them off occasionally to exhibit them. lol

      The patina on antiques is so important according to the experts.


      • Michael Edwards

        Yes they put a lot of emphasis on evidence of 'wear'. 😁😁

      • Doggerel Dave

        Where did you wear them? 🙂
        PS: testing ..One.. two..three.........Don';t know how long this will last before deletion.....thought I'd see...

          My family think I'm eccentric.

          Cheers Fred.

          while I appreciate your skill for crisp imagery: 'patina knicker's', is not something I ever wanted my over-indulgent imagination to picture with such detail... Ahem! lol
          btw, your comment on Fred's write had me almost in tears (bits of me: indeed) lmao
          oh and I took a few minutes to appreciate that beautifully serene scene of 'our everyday', we sadly take for granted it seems,
          thanks for all the chuckles on a dreary Monday morning Michael

            The picture is of Lincoln - long since sold - the picture that is - not Lincoln.

            Hi Michael,

            An entertaining write.

            Victorian bliomers come to mind when you mean ancient.

            Keep writing ✍ and safe during these challenging times.
