A very melbourne shirt... (via sarcasmo)
Meanwhile this is how some recent visitors chez boynton were attired.
Comments: spring attire
Have already decided upon my nicely vicely regal outfit for the big spring day out at the W.S. Cox Plate.
Don't think you can go far wrong with a quietly understated number.

Regal Roller, Elegant Fashion or Miss Potential?

We use the vice-regal Roller as our weekend runabout, so omenously lock in 1 Mr. Dease.
Point to note before laying down your 50 cents (though the sky-rocketing oil prices now means the min. bet is $2. Shylocks!) each-way at the Lucky Shop.
R.R. is well named, it wins its races by rolling to the front and (in his last starts at Group 1 level ... the poor steed is now lumbered with the kiss of death cliche, "the most improved horse racing") stays there. However Miss Potential is characteristically a tear-away leader. The upsetting of R.R.'s apple-cart is on the cards.
(R.R.'s trainer was heard bitterly complaining that Miss P. did not have the class and shouldn't be in the race. The aforementioned pattern of Miss P.'s racing might be closer to the reason for his teeth-gnashing.)
Elegant Fashion ... simply outclassed.
Moi, on the other hand ...

Well I thought your regal outfit was potntially elegant, but thank you for the tips.
I love the name Miss Potential, it covers all bases. Is she more verb than noun, is she a chance or will she squander her potential?
I think I'll just have to put my $2 on her.

At last, a bee Burqua! Either that or it's a little schlager play with the yellowjackets - to see who drinks from the Honeycomb of Honour.

Yes we had the be-burquad bee people round to remove a swarm asap to their apiary.
Donne so swift there was no time to plath...
(btw: I once found a much better pic of the outfit, but was reluctant to re-offend with the hotlinking...see 'confidence wearing.')

I've invented the "new black". It's a colour called "October the Tenth".
When you look at it you fall in and disappear for three years.

Even the orgeshtra is beautifully black.
Even the quinella ticket we collected put us in the black.

I should have backed S with those Z bloodlines.
Instead I lost on Number 9, although he did fight on well. Again.
