The collected opinions of an august and aristocratic personage who, despite her body having succumbed to the ravages of time, yet retains the keen intellect, mordant wit and utter want of tact for which she was so universally lauded in her younger days. Being of a generation unequal to the mysterious demands of the computing device, Lady Bracknell relies on the good offices of her Editor for assistance with the technological aspects of her journal.

A further indulgence

The comments on Lady Bracknell's previous post having been so kind, she hopes that her readers will indulge her in just one more image of the friend whose sedate company she has enjoyed for so many years.

The early morning, at least, being sunny yesterday, Lady Bracknell's elderly feline companion once again insisted that the back door be left ajar for her convenience.

The photograph to the left having been taken with a digital camera rather than the Editor's mobile phone, the quality of the image is considerably higher. Readers will thus be able to observe for themselves the level of decrepitude to which Lady Bracknell's feline companion has, sadly, sunk of recent months.

She remains, nevertheless, a cat of Strong Opinions: one does not need to be an expert in feline communication to judge that she was Not Best Pleased at being expected to pose for the camera.

She certainly has a look that's saying: "Just get ON with it!"

She looks a grand old lady. Emphasis on the "grand". I have a Tshirt that says "Thousands of years ago, cats were worshipped as gods. Cats have never forgotten this". Her Ladyship's cat clearly is one of those with a long memory. Bless!

La pauvre--but how lovely that you've had her longer than you might have expected. I'm sure she enjoys having staff so attentive to her needs.

Ah, she looks like a grand old lady. And she's right to have "views".
My dommiserations to you, Lady Bracknell, I know how hard it is to face the impending passing of a beloved companion.

Her elegant self-composure should be a lesson to the many people today who lose all sense of dignity when faced with a camera.
