So you are wearing your Barbour, your bow tie and kicking your Uncle in the twig and berries whilst playing with a pigs skin, then you hop in the woody so you can then traipse around Granny's vast front yard only to then have to bless the hounds of the neighborhood? How many dog houses does your Granny have in the back yard and then do the neighbors complain about all the noise and smell? Seriously chap, Dickens called and he wants me to tell you to quit reading his stories with MD 20/20 before bed because you are just ripping him off.......Biff
Is Ralph Lauren coming to dinner?
because the hounds are part of the family of course
The ecumenical tradition harks back to early medieval days when hunters believed an intercession from St. Hubert of Liege, the patron saint of hunters, would protect their hounds from disease and keep them safe during the hunt.Reproduced from " Our State" magazine.Here in SE Penna the Radnor Hunt pack gets a blessing from the rector of St. David's Church on Thanksgiving a.m. It is a wonderful tradition to witness.
Ricky ole boy!! keep up the great entertainment. Please continue with your passion. These small minded people that take jabs at you incognito aren’t worthy of consideration. Our culture has become less civilized which is quite a paradox in our enlightened land of freedom and universities! I appreciate your reference to the Blessing of the Hounds as does Main Line Sportsman. As a field hunter myself, with more seasons to experience, I enjoy your blog on a weekly basis. For those of you who want to see more pictures of this ancient athletic sport, check out www.mfha.org and see how it still thrives in our country.
I've been reading your blog theese past few days and it was a blast to read the comments!Seriously now, I sincerely hope that this is somekind of a wasp life stereotypes parody. If not, please seek help! You are the first person who managed to get himself brainwashed by some Ralph Lauren catalogs!
I don't think think is a parody. My family does much of what is mentioned in the postings not as a complete match, of course, but there's a lot of similarity. I certainly wish people dressed and lived as such as the rise of common culture isn't to be lauded as wonderful. Great postings, Richard.
