Intro to Manners

The Manners paper

At the entrance of Virtual Cafe WIM you will see
a bulletin board, next to the pay telephones just
as you come in on the left, with the heading MANNERS.

Is this about proper behaviour? Like  taking your hat off
in church? Don't spit on the schoolground as the heavy-
handed principal happens to be coming your way.

No, not that. There is actually nothing on that paper
that children would read. Not the casual passer-by.
A Cafe'Guest might recognize the style of writing.

The Guest might be amused, move-in closer to discover
an address to Guests in their twenties, thirty years ago.
Very, very useful stuff for their child or grandchild.

Guests who were sitting around the table of Virtual
Cafe WIM a month ago, were quite interested to hear
what very useful stuff Wim was going to give away.

Now it is on the bulletin board rather dangerously
loosely fastened -who did staple it anyway? It can
easily come off , get picked-up by a breeze and ...gone.

That is how things go. As far back as  5000 BC. Things
were found and kept, treasured, handed-over and
found to be useful as historic document or content.

I wish this slim strip of text will not be blown by the
wind into other dust on the street, stayng long enough
to see sequels appear on manners from the age of Seven.

An Invitation to chat on February 14  -dear VALENTINE  is observed on a Sunday, will be going out to Virtual Cafe WIM'
 Guests LIVE in a to be announced coffee-place.  tt  Wim

Hello. I too would love a copy of the book. I spent many a happy afternoon and evening at Wim in my teens. It was a home away from home.
