Harlan Pepper If You Don’t Stop Naming Nuts

1. “I used to be able to name every nut that there was.”

2. Diana Mitford was what you might call a monster, but/and there are some great bits in this interview:

“I don’t think he was nearly as eccentric as people imagine. You see, he had a bloodhound, and it was rather fun to hunt with him, and we children were there, available. Most men love hunting after all. He didn’t hunt us very often with his bloodhound, and in any case the bloodhound died. He didn’t have what you might call a kennelful of bloodhounds; there was just one dear old one and he thought, well, let’s give him a run.”
