Manolo’s Saturday Miscellany

Manolo says, here are the few links which may perhaps amuse…

Unlike most brides that I know, her feet probably weren’t killing her.

In the painting she wears a soldier’s breastplate over her dress, hair streaming from under a helmet, and runs across a landscape toward the mouth of Hell

I am heading to East Africa this summer to volunteer.

    I really hope the East Africa writer and columnist are kidding…

    Hola to the Jenny! La BellaDonna, she fears that both the writer and the columnist were in earnest. La BellaDonna, she has offered the suggestion or three, but hopes that the well-meaning writer does the Great Deal of Research before embarking on her journey. La BellaDonna fears that the writer who is worried that a peasant skirt is one or two seasons out of style and thus not worthy of being packed is in for the culture shock when she arrives in East Africa.

    Oh, the horror of arriving in East Africa in a skirt that is two seasons out of date! Whatever will she do?
