A dying breed – the gentleman.

       “A gentleman” is defined as being somebody who is chivalrous, courteous or honourable and is also used as a form of address.

       There doesn´t seem to be too many of that kind of people walking the planet in our modern times.

       I suspect that´s because “being a gentleman” seems to be seen as being rather “fuddy-duddy” and old school

       Which is what I just said. There doesn´t appear to be too many of those kind around.  😉

       The word “gentleman”, has the word “gentle” within it, which suggests a caring, considerate, pleasant male person. How does one get to be a gentleman, daddy?

       Among other things; having manners, etiquette and acting with good behaviour.

       A bit like me then really. I always wait ages to get my food and I hardly ever complain. I´m very patient.

I never thought one could class me as being a gentleman pussycat.

       Well there is a bit more to it than just waiting, without complaining, to be fed Mr Midnight.

       What exactly are manners daddy?

       “Manners” are ways of behaving with polite standards. Through customs, one is aware of how to positively interact within society. One puts others before oneself.

       “A gentleman” is certainly a dying breed – putting others BEFORE ONESELF?

       I know; it is rather sad, and the very thought of putting others first is a notion difficult to comprehend for many in the 21st century.

       Perhaps you human “gentlemen” are copying us cats.  We often put ourselves first.

       But we try to do it in a nice way Mr Midnight. Our behaviour is only our instinct calling.

       I believe that if one possesses manners, then one has had an upbringing and is educated. Instruction in younger years appears to be a thing of the past. It appears appealing to want to do what we want to do without thinking of others.

How are we suppossed to have manners and etiquette when nobody has taught us?

       Well being a gentleman may be a difficult task but I think it is well worth it.

Most people, especially the male variety, wish to portray how cool they are.

I can´t think of anything more elegant, sophisticated and cool than being a gentleman.

       One would certainly stand out in the crowd if one was a gentleman in our modern times!

Why write a blog?

author-Avatar A good question I asked myself, especially coming from somebody as myself. I suppose one of the reasons for beginning this blog  was because of  having repeatedly been politely  informed from my inner  circle of friends and family that I should at long last, “get up-to-date” and move on into the 21st century.
It is not that I am against all forms of modernity but that I prefer to go at my own speed in life and will thus,  typically avoid  treading the path of the mainstream.

MM-Avatar I can only agree. If you want to be happy in life then you can only walk your own path.  By the way, My name is Mr Fred Midnight, but my daddy calls me Mr Midnight. When he wants me in at night it saves him having to call out such a long name. It could otherwise get quite ridiculous.

SW-Avatar I don´t know what you´re moaning about, I´m  known by the name of Sir George Francis Winston but daddy just calls me Sir Winston. I´m only ever mentioned with such a long name when appearing on official documents – such as when having to visit the vets (I really love that place).

By the way I also agree about going at your own speed in life but am not so sure about having to get up to date. As a human, one must possibly  move with the times, but not at the expense of ones health or when not having properly thought things through – I do a lot of thinking.

author-Avatar  May I get back to explaining my blog boys?

The other reason for me to write a blog is quite obvious – with which to extract some of the topics and themes from my book entitled “Nice place, shame about the human race” and philosophise a little on the many areas of our modern existence. It would be lovely to receive some feedback from others but for now, I shall have to make do with philosophising with my two furry friends.

SW-Avatar I´m sure Mr Midnight doesn´t mind and I look forward to a few interesting discussions. After all, both of us have a lot of time on our hands!

MM-Avatar Daddy, my tummy´s rumbling. Is it time for a light snack?

author-Avatar OK.  Enough of my brief explanation for blogging. Time to go and look for some food sticks.

In my next blog we´ll examine the issues about “Time” and how we spend our time.

Thank you for your time.
