"My word Edward. That Elizabeth is such a trollop! She consumed more than a lion's share of absinthe then laid on the day bed in front of her guests with her ankle showing!"
Ha!

This reminds me of a film I saw of this fellow that was made sometime in the 40’s and this guy must have been 80 years old

Anyway… he said how in his youth he and his buddies would go downtown after a rainstorm to watch ladies step off the curbs, they would lift their dresses to avoid getting them wet, he explained how he would greatly rejoice in getting a glimpse of ankle…

Lawns have been around forever.

Actually.....not!
When did lawns become popular in America?


Green, weed-free lawns so common today didn't exist in America until the late 18th century. Instead, the area just outside the front door of a typical rural home was typically packed dirt or perhaps a cottage garden that contained a mix of flowers, herbs, and vegetables.

Deja vu

I was actually pondering the history of “the lawn” the other day

Facebook of the day. Not as immediately gratifying, but that Caryn got to stew in her venom until her scathing post was published a few days later. I'm curious to see the retort 3 days later.

Squeaky guitars? Maybe a fiddle in the mix?

I play a lot of 1890s stuff...mando hits of the period would drive anyone bonkers. Marches, Polkas, schottisches, Opera transcriptions. At least the banjoists were playing Ragtime (which was considered trashy at the time).

Don't forget about gramps buried in the backyard.
