Last Chance Dept.
My camel spits, stares me square in the eyes, then casually walks away into the Thar Desert (with all my luggage).
The trek back to the hotel gives me time to think about things. How much does a man really need?
Where, on the great scale of muchness and littleness on this stage of life, is felicity?
I present to you my answer. An exact reproduction (best I can tell) of the pragmatic and dashing shirt worn by Mr. Quentin Grogan when he guided Teddy Roosevelt on safari in 1910.
"A good hunter and a capital fellow," said TR. Big expandable chest pockets. Button-down collar points that won't flap distractingly when you aim at a charging bull elephant. Long sleeves to keep out tsetse flies. Cool but tough cotton poplin, woven tightly enough to serve, if necessary, as a bailing bucket.
Who am I to question this man's professional judgment?
