That's a room with at least 6 deer heads on the wall. Might be a few too many. They clash with the curtains.

And the table legs. Lord, the table legs!

BE: Too many deer heads? That's crazy talk!

Mama: but they match his striped hose.

It's a Scottish lodge. That says it all. I've stayed in a few, and the decor is always lively.

Well, we are talking about a people who really embraced plaid.

Sleep may be her only means of escape.

Ha! I didn't even think about that.

There are entirely too many things going on in this room to comment on one. It's a trifle overwhelming. I was thinking, maybe the ladies are stoned? They look a little stoned. But then I thought "Oh God! I'd hate to be stoned in that room!" so maybe not.

Maybe just a wee bit too much sherry with lunch?

Maybe the decor plus the corsets made them faint?

And the striped stockings.
