I found, with my England-lovin' eyes, a second-hand scarf ($2) with THE BAYEUX TAPESTRY printed on it. How cool is that? How else can the Norman invasion fold into a tiny square? The story of the tapestry itself is fascinating. All sorts of drama. It was probably comissioned by Bishop Odo, lol. Now, when I feel like I have History hanging around my neck, there's a good literal reason for it. During the troublesome days of the French Revolution, it was going to be used as a wrap-around for a wagon to save its contents from the weather, ::CHOKE!:: but it was saved at the last minute by a member of Bayeaux’s city council.
