Note the “Weslyan Missions” collecting box that Mister Horn is holding. We found this little book on the very day that the story of the Methodist minister who had been caught allegedly trying to buy rent boys and/or drugs hit the news. I have heard that some very unkind people are calling him The CRYSTAL METHodist”.Quite uncalled for.
Illegal in most countries I would imagine.Seriously taking advantage of man’s best friend, all wise and kind with his head on Master’s knees and all.Pity you have to carry a bag of his crap with you when you go walkies.They don’t tell you THAT when you sign up to doggiedom.Or perhaps they do….
There are creams for that sort of thing (I am told).
We’re back after a year of building work with a few more strange titles for those of you with puerile minds like mine.Lots more to follow…….
This title is almost a legend in some circles. Again, it does seem unfeasable that someone didn’t suggest to the author or editor, that there might possibly be something, shall we say, of a double meaning, something a little askance, something that would not arouse your maiden aunt to laughter, but might get the more knowing and cosmopolitan folk sniggering…..
I’m totally spoiling you now. The title to own and usually quite expensive, but I picked up my Scouts in Bondage quite cheaply. So to speak.
The kind , elderly lady book dealer selling me this book told me that there were very few books on the rubber trade about, and that this was a good one, and was I especially interested in the subject? I replied that I was “trade”, and she said that she supposed I could get a better price for it. Difficult to explain my interest really, so I paid and left quickly…..
