Why did Max become eloquent over a zany gift like jodhpurs? has quickly become boynton's favourite sentence. She has mused over the panagram, meditatively repeating it within the koan zone of pre sleep.

Why did Max become eloquent over a zany gift like jodhpurs? etc.

Sometimes you take things to google in an act of faith -and failing that magic: there'll be some unconscious connection out there known only to google. One of the pages it returned was this who where family history page with unsolved mysteries within photographs. If you scroll down you'll see that the photo of a Young man in jodhpurs & Dot with curly locks. May 19, 1918 has now been solved. But boynton was so taken by the first image that she forgot about Max. We think that's Lell on the left. The next, we don't know... Boynton has always had a soft spot for these unknowns, unidentifieds, friends in group photographs, the hostages of gatherings, imposters at picnics, undercover footballers, wedding spies. The anonymous possess such narrative power. It diminishes with every unearthed detail.

Meanwhile : why did Max ...?

Why did ...

Because he's kinky! Simple when you know how, Miss b!

Ah, Mr W... The kinky aspect was not completely missed by miss b. (And she even saw some kinkylinks to zany kinkyland from "jodphurs" that she chose not to pursue - even in the name of narrative mystery.)

A spiffing sentence, I'll allow. Although my favourite remains, "Jack, you have debauched my sloth." (*HMS Surprise*)

I have just added yours to the inventory, Rob.
(and the Suprise itself)
For some reason it reminds me of a Shakesperian quote one of my sisters was quite fond of:
"thou hast comforted me marvellous much." Juliet
(in the "not" sense of course)
