Wild Morris: Day 4

— July 1st, 2008

Tim is far too hot and tired to type today (and apparently the East of England isn't so hot on wireless Internet), so he heavy-breathed a few rushed words to me over the phone.

He took tea with the Mayor and Mayoress of Chelmsford today. It was a lovely experience and they were only a litle bit confused when he presented them with a garter from "Chelmsford's Favourite Hosier". Apparently Will Kemp did this very thing when he was morrising his way across East Anglia, so there is at least some historical basis for it rather than Tim just thinking it'd be appropriate.

He also gave them a copy of his Fine Book, should the Mayor and Mayoress have had any lasting doubts about his sanity.

Tim's hoping to be somewhere around Halstead tonight.
