Yeah, it was a dumb idea


Recommended Posts

I have decided on a new hobby. I shall buy a vintage sports car, possibly red, and cruise the college campuses inder the pseudonym Professor Alpha Centauri Jones, head of the Astrophysics Archaeology Department. I think I may need an ascot too. And some tweed. B)

EDIT: By the way, I’m not looking to hook up with silly co-eds, God forbid. I would prefer more mature faculty members. Like art or history teachers who could hold an intelligent conversation over a glass of wine. So there! 
Or perhaps I’m setting the bar too high. 
Yeah. Dumb plan. I’ll put my cowboy boots back on. :rolleyes::lol:

You'd be more likely to have an intelligent conversation WITH the silly co-ed. Their minds are still developing. The mind of your average college teacher has been rotted by years of "Academia".

What’s all this nonsense about talking?  If I wanted to converse I’d just hang out with my Boston Terrier.  B)

The college campus venue probably is not a good choice if you're looking for logical thought and non-confronational  conversation.

Utah Bob, My apologies!  The lighting in the photo sure makes it look photo shopped.  If we ever meet at some pub down the road I owe ya a pint and good cigar.   :) :FlagAm:

Isn't there supposed to be suede elbow patches on that jacket?

No. Only on the tweed one.

Don't let the "Nay-Sayers" bug ya.  I really like the Cap.  Be it a "Thug" or "Paper Boy" or whatever, it's a fine Cap.  I have about a dozen of 'em.  Some from Ireland, Some form Scotland, Some from Disneyland.  Great Hats all.

Funny, I have a cap that was my Dad's, a Cuffley Cap by Stetson, fur felt made in England of all things.  Rather stylish and it looked good on him.  He wore it on a trip to visit relatives in Germany.  Everyone was horrified because at the time, that cap style was all the rage among German gangsters.

I do not wear the scally cap into town. I would be pegged as a tourist and wouldn’t be able to get a good deal on Navajo jewelry. 
Might possibly incite a lynch mob also. :lol:

Maybe this would be a great ride.  Just think how cool you would look pedaling down the country side roads with a pipe in your mouth, your tweed jacket with added elbow patches, and greeting the ladies in your best British Accent.

The best part, its Red.
