"Blandings Castle slept in the sunshine. It was that gracious hour of a summer afternoon, midway between luncheon and tea, when nature seems to unbutton its waistcoat and put its feet up." Summer Lightning by PG Wodehouse
Wodehouse short stories about Bertie's chums at the Drones club. Patchy but sublime when he hits the mark - see Uncle Fred flits by. Includes the only story I know where Blandings' characters meet the world of Wooster.
