Great PaulVDV 2021-10-17 9:29

Hello Beverley,
On the thumbnail I didn't know what it was.
I was thinking more about artificial flowers.
But it are giant lollies.
In the WS we see both girls looking greedily at the sweets that still seem unreachable.
Doesn't Pippi Longstockings always wear two different stockings? Or maybe everyone in Sweden?
Best regards, Paul

Default To PaulVDV: Pippi Longstocking

Thank you, Paul.

Yes, Pippi Longstocking did wear odd socks but my daughter loved to wear bright socks, particularly after reading the books, so she became Pippi Longstocking because her stockings were so garish!

My warm regards, Bev 😊

Hello Bev and Paul,
"Everyone in Sweden" doesn't wear odd socks, but one of our highest ranking diplomats (Ambassador to the UN among other things) was well known for doing just that after retirement, when he was allowed to behave without any formal restrictions. He "came out" as a kind of "dandy" with a rather extravagant way of life and dress. I met him once or twice while he was still in his career, perfectly formal and strict, but with a lighthearted personality.
Best regards,
Gert

OK, I got it Gert.
You wear two of the same stockings.
