Letter Writing With CPS

Post about everything from carrying a handkerchief to manly skills (sharpening a pocket knife, etc.) to product reviews of items that may have slipped under our radar (e.g. - Grandpa's Pine Tar soap). No threads on anything "new" unless it harkens to old-fashioned sensibilities and ideals.

I hope I get TNLP!
I hope you get theImpudent.
That'd work too. I haven't had a text from him in a while.
The contents of your cellphone must be interesting.
Quite indeed. Between various Snapchats of TNLP and convos with theImpudent, there's never a dull moment.

Indeed. You should be more like Gaining Age, Jo. He seems like a real hep cat, as Del's generation would say. Tons of fun at parties. Usually to be found wearing the lampshade by the end of the night and telling the college girls that he's a happily married man, thanks.

Fountain pens, inky fingers and exhaustion inevitably brings on physics discussions are more characteristic than lampshade.

As for the college girls comment...
I once was at an after church gathering a few years ago and there was initially mixed gender seating but then folks got up to get their order and when they came back the hens and the roosters were segregated. Now I'm a gregarious fellow but I thoughtfully avoided being "that guy" and sat near a gentleman (I don't know if that may have started the separation). I observed it and then others noted the segregation and made a comment. I quietly said, as I brought my drink up to my lips, "I just don't want to be seen as the creepy old guy." Only my friend to my left heard me and he cracked up laughing so hard and said " you, my friend, have made my day with that comment-- that was perfect."
