Excerpt

In the time of swords and periwigs and full-skirted coats with flowered lappets - when gentlemen wore ruffles, and gold-laced waistcoats of paduasoy and taffeta - there lived a tailor in Gloucester.

I wish they still had these types of industrious mice nowadays. Mice who will hear your frantic plea for help to complete a deadline at work...and then they'll come running to complete your powerpoint presentation or spreadsheet. Maybe because they're from Gloucester?

The tailor and his helpful mice made such an impression on me when I was small that I actually visited Gloucester. I never found the little rodents, but I did find one of those wonderful alleys full of shops. Certainly, the little ones were busy at work in one of those stores.

"And then I bought
A pipkin and a popkin,
A slipkin and a slopkin,
All for one farthing"
