    I tell ya, someone with a big knife was there cos those trees are murder to trim 😛

  2. I wondered where I left my sword.

  3. Watery tarts distributing swords is no basis for a system of government.

    It looks lovely and all, but don’t get be-dazzled and start taking hand-outs from the Lady of the Lake!

  5. Tony says:

    DOH!!! Dennis beat me to it!!!
    Previously though…

    Old woman
    Man
    Sorry, old man whose castle is that?
    I’m 37
    What?
    I’m 37, I’m not old.
    Well I can’t just call you man.
    Well you could’ve called me Dennis
    I didn’t know you were called Dennis
    Well you didn’t bother to find out did you.
    Look I did say sorry about the old woman thing

    Well, they did a pretty good job, Jayne; maybe it wasn’t King Arthur but Sir Edward Scissorhands?

    Rofl, Barefootheart!

    I didn’t realize you were quoting, James, till I saw Tony’s comment. (For one thing, despite having watched MPATHG numerous times, I still can’t cut the peasants’ accent!)

    You don’t agree with Jayne, then, Eyegillian, that Excalibur would make a nice replacement for my pruning saw?

    Thanks for the enlightenment, Tony! (Now repeat in a cockney accent, “I’m 50, I’m not old!”)

    Such a pretty place, Lavenderbay. It has an air of expectation about it. I’m sure those trees know exactly where to find interesting pond cutlery.

    I was gonna mirror what James and Tony said. Guess you can tell the Monty Python fans, yeah? Beautiful photo!

    DENNIS: Well you can’t expect to wield supreme executive power
    just ’cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!
    ARTHUR: Shut up!
    DENNIS: I mean, if I went around sayin’ I was an empereror just
    because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me they’d
    put me away!
    ARTHUR: Shut up! Will you shut up!

    It’s one of the trails through Rockwood Park, Livingisdetail. When I glimpsed this small lake from the trail, I immediately imagined the arm raising the sword through the surface, and wanted to share the view and its romantic connotations. Little did I reckon that most of my frequent commenters are Monty Python fans, lol!

    Sometimes I’m just so out of the loop, S. Le.
    My favourite part of that film is actually the group of Flagellants, praying for the repose of the souls of the dead and then whacking themselves in the forehead with planks.

    See what I mean? Never, in umpteen viewings, did I catch the word “bint”, which apparently derives from the Arabic for “daughter”. Sad, really, how a perfectly respectable word in one language becomes an epithet of derogation in another; is it because of socioracial tensions, do you think, or mysogynic metalinguistics, or perhaps —
    ARTHUR: Shut up! Will you shut up!
