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.

Lady Bracknell recommends

Having promised to refrain for the present from writing further about her feline companions past and present, Lady Bracknell finds herself at something of a loss for subject matter. (There are one or two things of particular interest going on in the editor's life currently, but she refuses to have details of them broadcast on her employer's blog, at least for the present.)

Until such time, therefore, as Lady Bracknell's perfidious muse returns to her, she recommends that her readers peruse the articulate writings of Arthritic Young Thing.

Could it posssibly be that the Purchase of a Suitable Outfit is taxing the editorial brain at present?

Dame Honoria hopes the Muse will return presently.

Thank you so much for the shout-out, Lady Bracknell! I hope your Muse returns to you soon.

Come back soon, Lady Bracknell. Mum says she doesn't mind more cat stuff. She picked up a stray dog last night. The dog was titchy, about the size of our old cat actually but it was not the same - too doggy.

Dame Honoria is, as ever, very astute. However, whilst not all elements of the outfit have yet arrived, all have now been ordered.

(There is, for example, the small matter of the hat taking three weeks to be lovingly fashioned by the milliner.)

No, something entirely different is happening to the editor next Tuesday morning, and is currently taxing her brain to no small degree.

All will be revealed in the fullness of time...

Shurely shome mishtake my Lady. For there will be no muses whilst Caspar roams about your quarters.

I don't know. I was rather enjoying the Caspar Chronicles, myself. :)

There is such a wealth of excellent, thought-provoking writing linked on this site; thank you for pointing me to more of it!

Speaking as a (very) mere male, I must confess to anticipating the Chronicles of Cats Past and Present much more eagerly than the Chronicles of Haberdashery. Strike a balance, your Ladyship: about one blog on Hats to twelve on Caspar strikes me as reasonable.

Hope the muse returns soon, Lady B - perhaps plying her with a G & T will help?

Dear Lady Bracknell:

I'm one reader who would like to hear more about Caspar--and see more pictures of her magnificent tale.

I hope Caspar is adjusting well to life in a home instead of an institution.

And that your muse returns soon.

Hats and cats... and somewhere I have a picture of a cat in a hat. In a 15th century chaperon, in fact...

Hats and cats are good things to talk about, your ladyship. Pray do not feel that your audience is bored by reading about either.
