"Oh, no, my Lord, I assure you that parts of it are excellent!" "True Humility" by George du Maurier, originally published in Punch, 1895.

Bishop: “I’m afraid you’ve got a bad egg, Mr Jones”; Curate: “Oh, no, my Lord, I assure you that parts of it are excellent!”

  3. andrea and tara…well, we’re not as soggy as you folks frequently are! As to power, on Saturday it sulked for nearly 5 hours, but during a major storm that night it stayed on! No great damage here, apart from mulch, pebbles, weeds from two properties on higher ground over the fence.
