Elegantly Dressed Wednesday

Elegantly Dressed Wednesday button

American author of one
of my favourite books-to-film:
'The Right Stuff'
(and Bonfire Of The Vanities,
The Kandy Kolored Tangerine Flake Streamline Baby,
Radical Chic & Mau Mauing The Flak Catchers)
Tom Wolfe, is a Southern Gentleman,
and has always been a snappy dresser.
and he is clever too, I do declare.

  3. Bloody hell, you said you were frightened of the tree last week. Was that the house with the car wreck in the drive? I told you I hate gum trees.

  4. Tom Wolfe also wrote The Right Stuff about the American Space Program, if I'm not mistaken. Philip Kaufman's 1983 film of that novel was terrific.
    As to your extreme weather travails BWCA, God speed. Come in she said I'll give you shelter from the storm.

  5. Sorry about that, Chief. Thanks for not writing "Duh!" or "wtf can't you read?!?" Anyway, we both love that film.

  6. Glad you are okay. Our old house was positively surrounded by really huge gum trees and it was a fool who went out on windy days...and the kids seldom played under tham on any day as the massive killer branches would just drop...all you would hear was a crack...Used to tell the kids to run to the trunk of the closest standing tree as it might offer a bit of protection if they didn't know where that "crack" came from...too bloody late to look up...I hated them being so close

  9. If you get a grandchild named "Ted", time to start worrying. "Angry" would be OK,though.

    I've just updated the blogroll - it's kind of nice that your new blogname is in the same position as the old one!
    I haven't copied your strapline in the alt.text just in case...

  13. Ever considered running a Badly Dressed Sunday feature, where you post photographs of various non-entity celebrities suffering from hang overs, unshaven, ciggies hanging from the cracked lips, in their underwear and socks watching the soap operas? My first nomination would be for Lord Sedgwick, eyes like two under-poached eggs and the sort of 'Y' fronts that wombats could use as a hammock, following an all-night drinking binge of Pimms and winkles.

  16. Apologies to all Commentors above whose comments now make no sense as a result of me deleting my own (identifying) response comments. Have been 'outed elsewhere lately and am just covering arse from that cyberstalker who is about.
