* looks out from under the table*

Hmmph, that does seem to be the problem with these new-fangled horselesses... they are doing it in the street, and it does scare the horses...

I'll send a telegram to the local provisions establishment, any preferences to top up the larder? A lb of wensleydale, a crusty loaf, a few bottles of Mr Theakstons best, a large pork pie...
Anything else? Anyone have any in period food choices?

Ploughman´s lunch would do for a start.

Er, let's see; half a hundredweight of stilton, a case of port, a couple of hogsheads of Funnel Blower, and a sausage roll for me please.

That should keep me going until...ooooh, about breakfast time tomorrow.
I made a note in my diary on the way over here. Simply says; "Bugger!"

*Cough*

Oh sorry! Didn't mean to break the silence...

*wakes up in his armchair*

What happened? I think we had ordered food quite a while ago.

*leaves room to get some firewood*

*Folds newspaper and holds it out*

Here you go, this should help get the fire started....besides, it seems to be around 6 month out of date.

*eye catches a news item*

OH!... It says here that soon we will all be heating our homes and buildings with something called "Gas Fires"!
Sounds dangerous to me,I don't see that catching on! No sir, Coal is where the healthy heating is! And so it shall remain!!


*still reading paper*

Hmmm, it seems that Alexander Graham Bell chap who makes the phoney thing, is being sued by his assistant Mr Thomas Augustus Watson, for "sexual harassment" - says here that Mr Bell was heard by witnesses to call his assistant into his office. There is some dispute about the actual words used, as Mr Bell claims it was a work related request of "Mr. Watson - Come here - I want to see you,". However Thomas Watson, remembered it as "Mr. Watson - Come here - I want you".

"Mr Bell denies that shortly after he followed with another call of "Bring wine, and wear something leather!, but agrees he may have called and offered a deal on replacement windows and offers on new kitchens at discounted prices."

My word! What is the world coming to... *shakes head and drops newspaper onto the pile of logs*

Strange world.....

Let´s get this place up and running.

*picks up the newspaper and starts to build up a fire*

Who´s in charge of the kitchen?

The phone thing might just be another hoax like this Mr. Tesla with his wireless power. All sparks and bang, nothing came of it.

*Wakes up*

Oh, my head. What was I drinking last time I was conscious?

Ah, well. Tea anyone?
