ok the story so far

Salammbo has been persuaded by Spendius to steal the veil of Carthage

Mathos told her to wash it when she got it home

she put it in the washer on 'delicate' with low spin speed

so it was quite damp when she was just about to hang it on the line

and damn it it felt like rain

so after sacrificing a goat and burning incense she managed to get the sun god to do the drying

....near?

How do you manage that, Steve? It's almost like Mary Higgins Clark!

It is possible to think that it was all a giant piss take of Louise Colet and her arty bourgeois style.

She was an ex by then. Louise was exacting, sensual, tactless, unreasonable and grossly indecent. And pestering. The book is supposed to have enraged her although Princess Mathilda was much taken by it.

Maybe Gus had stolen one of Louise's "zaimphs" when they were lovers. . He had a pair of her slippers in his study.

We have a saying that translates likes this:

Any pleasure the hand can't reach is a fake...

Are you suggesting Francis, that we should ignore all and everything which is out of arms reach?

Surely Mathos, with what you are supposed to have, you can't expect to have arms long enough to reach that which we lesser mortals can easily do.

Exactly the other way around!

You have to try to reach all and everything!

I saw a Red Admiral today flitting around in an orchard.



The exhibition should have a Red Admiral.

Francis, I couldn't agree more!


If you wait for your boat to come in, it's a ship wreck.

If you want it, work for it, and the more of a positive mental attitude you possess, you can attain all you desire.

Perchance, you could read up old pip.

What of Britain's national dish, chicken tikka masala.

My hat, look at the time.
