Were trousers (or slacks) not allowed at the time?
They weren't as fashionable as mini-skirts were, unless you were a rocker!


Funnily enough, I never wear anything but trousers now, and haven't worn a skirt for years and years, even a long one!

1969: Life with the Maxi #4

We’re running out of ideas now. Would the dog really mistake her for a tree?

Despite my green maxi, I was never mistaken for a tree!
Or for a lamp-post, come to that!

1979: On the danger list

The man with the seagull on his lap looks justifiably apprehensive when looking at the other animals in the vet’s waiting room.

That reminds me of the time when I took my cat to the vet's, in a cardboard box (with airholes!).
This particular cat had a particularly dominant personality and was extremely feisty, and made her displeasure known by yowling and caterwauling very loudly, and by scrabbling away at the box.

Everyone in the room was looking quite aghast, and they were probably wondering what sort of lynx or wildcat I had in this box.
The yowling got louder and the scrabbling got more destructive.

Anyway, my cat managed to scrabble a hole in the box, so I thought I'd better get her out and hold her on my lap, and I said as much.

People were looking very worried as I opened up the box and started to lift her out.

Their worried looks turned into an explosion of laughter, because my cat was only about three or four months old, and was still a kitten, so was tiny.

The noise and scrabbling, though, would have more befitted a creature like the Beast of Bodmin.

Everyone roared with laughter at this 'ferocious' beast. It was quite embarrassing!

1978: ‘If I was going to Tipperary I wouldn’t start from here’

If the dead hitch hiker had really wanted to get to Vladivostok, he should have broken down the journey into manageable chunks.

1974: At home with Hieronymus Bosch

A mediaeval Dutch painter, Bosch was well known for his fantastic art. Here the artist suggests that his paintings were inspired by his dreams. Mrs Bosch looks rather voluptuous.
