Meanwhile downstairs, the men clustered about Thomas.
"Some lonely tramp - wandered in from the street and was found napping upon our bed" he said, swinging his umbrella nonchalantly from hand to hand. He found that he was talking in short bursts. "Evicted swiftly and now in the capable hands of the law - jolly good chaps, Gordon and Troy - gone - Police - all well" He was more shaken by the incident than anyone realised. Edith's eyes gleamed, there was more to this unexpected happening than just this glib explanation. Whatever was the truth of the matter, she would try to ferret it out! The past year had been fairly quiet and scandal free. More Grecons had arrived in the village, people of no great character and of less sturdy stature than some. Faulty standing ability too since many had inherited the Grecon deficiency - a common curse - that of One Leg Shorter than the Other. Often they arrived with no prior warning of this dreadful fault. Poor things, they had to constantly prop themselves up against sturdy pieces of furniture - if they didn't do this, one could fall against the next and then the whole lot of them fell like a house of cards. So many new faces though, for Edith to investigate. She licked her lips.

They were all on the Tacky wax in the room where the carpets had been removed. They have to be on a good dose of TW for a rollicking party!

...So dangerous to allow these wobblers a drink. If they'd thought to take the carpet up in this room (as they did in the room below) they could have gotten their guests to dip their feet in a tub of Tacky Wax on the way in and avoided drunken heaps altogether...


What a super idea Zoe!
But then of course we'd have missed seeing Rosemary's gorgeous carpets ;-)

Such a great pose and expression on Edith's face! She's obviously longing to find out more.

This particular group - apart from The Count, are steady and reliable chaps and chosen especially in view of the carpet in this lower room.

They look like they're all swallowing it apart from Edith.

So, for Edith, is the game afoot?
