Title: Courtly Matters
Post by: Amras Elfwine on May 10, 2008, 12:41:53 AM
Subject to the approval of Her Most Royal and Magical Highness, Bonnie, I do sincerely tender this deliniation of her court as it stands today. Further, I humbly beseech all members of this fine forum to forgive anything I've overlooked, and to please list in this forum any necessary corrections, which I will then transfer to this record.

On the 6th of December, 2004, Bonnie reluctantly accepted, upon the nomination of this forum, the title and position of Queen of Everything. Her platform was simple - free ren faires for life for all, and plenty of single malt to go along with it. It was suggested that the oath written in support of the "Between Faire Time" subject matter of the thread be used as the court oath. That oath follows:

Everyday, I shall live in the spirit of ren.
Everyday, I shall take my job seriously, but not myself while I do it.
Everyday, I shall relax.
Everyday, I shall love those who love me.
Everyday, I shall find some pleasure in life.

The Royal Court now stands as follows (presented in the chronological order of the appointment):

As you can see, DB was able to save quite a bit...quite a few names are missing, or, out on Crusade, as I think of them...so, as before, if you would like to become a member of the Court of Glenlivet, or, if you were a member and are not currently listed, please petition the Queen with your request, and we shall update the Court Lists asap...

QB, may I suggest The Royal Order of Landsharks.  We're privateers who've looked at 40, are happiest at sea and dangerous on land, whose official music keeper is Jimmy of Buffett.  If agreed, I humbly suggest this messenger be appointed Landshark No. 1.  Have a great weekend - see your evil twin next Saturday?

Most Gracious Queen Bonnie,

It appears that you have a plethora of privateers sailing under Your Letters of Marque, so, I need not fill that role (my position at TRF as vendor employee),  there are masters and mistress of the blades and weapons of all sorts so I need not fill that role (my position at other faires as booth owner).  I am a Dragon who wishes to serve this court in a manner befitting of his kind. You and Your court respect my kind and you honor us in many ways.  I merely seek to return the favor to You dear Queen Bonnie by offering my services as the Your Official Liasion to the Dragon Kingdom, this will allow for me to ensure that all others of my kin and kith shall afford you the proper respect as you so richly deserve.

Thank the for thy time,
Lord Vandor
The Purple Dragon of CHAOS

since it has been 3 years since I asked my title, I would like to change it if it pleases Her Majesty.
Also, Pirate Joe can't be the royal flirt anymore, he asks if he can have that changed to royal teddybear collector.

Vostro Majesty,

I have after much thought concluded that my talents as an Italian would best suit to serve as the Royal Wine Tester (and that includes all forms of the "w(h)ine."  Does vostro majesty approve, or shall ye have me return toward the writing slate once more?

Title: Re: Courtly Matters
Post by: Queen Bonnie on May 16, 2008, 12:37:30 PM
 We do have a wine taster here or had- but I am a wine afficionado- so another will be good! I do enjoy my wine! As far a Whine Tester? LOL! We are not fond of whining- but if someone must do it- it had better be good and tested on you first! LOL!!
We approve of your new royal position as Royal Whine/wine tester , Viscount. Now tell me, What do you think of this Montepulciano?  Interesting? Fruity but still nice and dry.
Title: Re: Courtly Matters
Post by: fluffy tail on May 16, 2008, 01:50:36 PM
Queen Bonnie, I am more familiar with the German wines so help with the Italian would be nice. More regions better choices.

Welcome to the cellar Visconte Vincente :)

*curtsy and offer you a glass of wine so you can whine.

Post by: Don Giovanni de' Medici on May 16, 2008, 10:50:33 PM
Gracie Majesty, e gracie fluffy tail!  I hope I can be of some assistance in the ways of both whine and wine.  I must say that this past it was discovered that a Mummer was my long lost sister.  For those of you who know mummers (at least in the Realm of Tampa) they are quite a bit to contend with and I have had much practice in testing their ways of the whine.

To your Majesty, I thank you for hospitality and contend that the wine given is most excellent as the little fruitful flavor is refreshing.  I suggest that you both try this Chianti direct from the cellars of Tuscany.  I think you find it to your liking.

And for their help and service to myself and my Twin, We do honor a knighthood on Jarrick Rafe. * Wee Claymore taps Jarrick on each shoulder*- Arise Sir Jarrick Rafe. And Dear Element of  Air.

Greetings, Queen Bonnie. 

I have been to visit the Acorn Wood and have noted that Amras Elfwine is Lord of the Squirrels.  There are others in the wood who may need a guardian and spokesperson, and therefore, I would like to most humbly request a title.  If it please your Majesty, I would be honored to fill the position of  Royal Protector of Chipmunks (and other four-footed furries).

At your service,

Post by: Lady de la Warr on June 15, 2008, 06:49:34 PM
Your Most Excellent Majesty,

I see you have a Keeper of the Royal Jewels. Tis good to have - you must have someone watching over them to ensure they do not go missing and to keep them bright and polished for your Majesty's use at a moments notice! Tis good indeed.

However, I am perplexed that I do not see a Royal Jewel Inspector! Tis a most necessary thing my Queen! You certainly do not want sub-standard jewels to slip into your collection! That would be a travesty! A Queen - and especially the Queen of Everything - should have only the highest quality jewels touch her most excellent person.

While I am the Queen of Denmark, I DO fall under "everything" and hence am one of your loyal subjects. Since I AM a queen however, I am quite the expert on jewels (I have quite a few myself your Majesty) and can weed out the unacceptable and low quality with ease. Those who know me personally, such as Amras and Count Adolfo, can attest to this fact as they have seen much of my personal collection........personally.  :)

I humbly offer the service of my jewel expertise to your Majesty to assist you in the accumulation of your collection of fine jewels, and am requesting entry into your court as Inspector of the Royal Jewels.

I patiently await your Majesty's decision. *deep curtsey*
Title: Re: Courtly Matters
Post by: Queen Bonnie on June 16, 2008, 09:20:07 AM
 Grammercy for your suggestion Lady de La Warr! We are most pleased to grant you the position of Royal Jewel Inspector!
This will be quite helpful to me. I have a vast collection of Jewels- but alas, my evil pirate twin sister usually Steal- er- borrows a few each time she comes to visit. I need to know I am getting the same ones back when she returns them!  Huzzah!
Title: Re: Courtly Matters
Post by: PurpleDragon on June 16, 2008, 09:22:14 AM
Knowing that evil sister like I do, her being a pirate and all, this is a most excellent idea.  One needs to be able to tell what is the real jewel and that which is paste.  I would hate to think that your most precious jewels have been replaced with nought more than colored glass baubles.
Title: Re: Courtly Matters
Post by: Count Adolfo on June 16, 2008, 11:24:55 AM
Aye, Majesty
I have seen the magnificence of the Lady's jewels... and can attest to the grand expertise she demonstrates in the topic.
It is also widely known that Peeps are envious of her expertise and wish they knew how to tell fine jewels from candy gumdrops.
Such an ally is surely yet another blow against our enemy!
Title: Re: Courtly Matters
Post by: Lady de la Warr on June 16, 2008, 07:16:10 PM
Your Most High and Excellent Majesty,

I am most honored with your confidence in my skill and will most loyally and expertly serve you. I will make certain that your evil twin sister returns the genuine goods she ........ahhhh......errrr.........borrows, and will ensure your jewel coffers are perfect and high quality to a fault!

As for those evil peeps - they have not a chance if they choose to come against ME regarding jewel expertise!! I shall easily keep them at bay! And grammercy Count Adolfo for your vote of confidence. As you have seen my jewels first hand you do definitely know I speak the truth!

Now, with her Majesty's leave, I must begin to execute my newly bestowed duties, as I need to inspect what is present in the coffers and take inventory of the sizes, types and qualities of the jewels therein. If the lovely FortuneRose would kindly show me the way to the jewel coffers I shall be off to work!!

Grammercy Your Majesty *deep curtsey*

My Lady Majesty,

As one of the Wandering folk, it is not generally in my nature to bend the knee. However, as Lady de la Warr so astutely pointed out, I, too, fall under the category of "Everything". Tho' I am quite new to your Realm, I would count myself most Honored to be included amongst such esteemed company. So, humbly I petition the court for an Official Royal Appointment (or two).

I have many skills which I would offer the Crown.

I have traveled through many lands on my lifelong journey, and have visited many Courts, learning much of Foreign Protocol. Perhaps I could offer my services as Royal Ambassador At Large.

I have some small skill as Drabarni, or fortune teller and herbalist. Might I request Royal Skryer? Perhaps Royal Keeper of the Herbs?

I have been known to pen the odd poem, story or ballad, frequently using as many words as possible. Perhaps I could occupy the position of Royal Minister in Charge of Ensuring the Maximum Usage of Verbosity (Minister of Wordiness, for short)?  ;D

One other skill would I share with the Court, if it please. I am a Master Kilt Collector, although of late I collect only with the aid of a Magic Box (so say I, and none to say me nay  ;)). I would be honored to occupy the post of Royal Kilt Collector and Chronicler. After all, only the finest of kilts, collected from the "finest" of kilt... displays, will do for the Royal Collection!

Someday, Majesty, I would also aspire to Debaucherette, but I feel that needs testing in the flesh, so perhaps when 'ere we meet in person I might apply myself to attain that position. At the present I will sharpen my skills in anticipation of that Happy Day!

I most humbly submit my petition, and await with baited breath your Gracious reply.

Most Sincerely,
Rani Zemirah
Title: Re: Courtly Matters
Post by: Queen Bonnie on September 14, 2008, 10:19:18 AM
 You do have a lot of talents, Rani Zamirah! We have no Royal Kilt collectors in our court although we have many inspectors and kilted laddies!
 I am very pleaded to make you our Royal Collector of Kilts! Huzzah! We shall start with that- tis a big job!
 We shall await with anticipation the viewing of the finest of your collection!
 
Title: Re: Courtly Matters
Post by: Rani Zemirah on September 14, 2008, 01:02:53 PM
HUZZAH!!! I will strive to bring honor to this most glorious of appointments, my Lady, and commit myself most thoroughly to it's accomplishment!

There will be some delay in viewing, unfortunately, since I have recently been attacked by a Most Vile Wizard who has stolen the magic from my previous large magic box, making it difficult for me to retrieve portraits of the collection and so far impossible for my small magic box to communicate with my new large magic box! I will puzzle it out, however, and discharge my duties in good order. You may count on me, Madame! After all, what Lady of the realm can say she has a more... rewarding... err... position?  LOL

Yours,
Rani Zemirah

Most honored Queen Bonnie, I do humbly present myself at your service. I am Dustin, AKA Oliver of Crippengate. I am already a privateer sailing under your Letter of Marque as a Guppy of the Royal Order of Landsharks. I would also like to respectfully request a court appointment. I don't know what position to suggest, but I will tell you of my skills and talents. I am an actor, as well as a theatre technician. In the past, I have worked on professional theatrical productions as a properties master, in which position I used my skills at finding things at thrift stores, as well as building certain props. I also use these skills in my faire-going, having found tankards for my entire family at Goodwill for $2.74, and making my walking stick, mug strap, and belt. I am also a photographer, and an avid reader. I have read your beloved Harry Potter series at least four times, as well as the complete Sherlock Holmes collection.  Finally, I am a connoisseur of fine ales, lagers, stouts and porters, as well as of fine rums and whiskeys.

I do humbly beseech you to appoint me to the position of your choice. (I will also be making an offering in the coming days to join the FOKTOP. More to come on that front...)

Majesty, please forgive my absence of late. I have been searching out new kilts for your collection! I have so far found one definite candidate, and perhaps another, but I will need to make my way to TRF in order to ascertain that the quality and cut are up to your standards. I am endeavoring to find a way, but it may take some effort!

I have so far been unable to retrieve the previous collection, but have discovered that there is a spell cast on the archive. There is, however, a counter-spell that may be concocted, if I am able to discover a source for all of the ingredients (at some cost, of course).

I will keep you informed of my progress, my Queen.

I do miss you and am so sorry that I have not kept in touch for the past month or so. I hope Tachi is doing better, I have seen that you needed to feed him some pumpkin.

Ah poop! I hope that the weather clears up for the first weekend of Fair! Looking at Plantersville on weather.com the 10 day forecast says Scattered T-Storms from Monday the 6th till Saturday the 11th and it will be in the low 80s. It is too early for them to pull up the Sunday Forecast and well, lets hope that it is too early for them to predict T-Storms all next week too.

I hope they clear up before Friday and give the grounds a little time to dry out. With the dry weather we have been having none of the soil will be able to absorb the water for it is so dry, most will be run off. I don't like walking fair when it is all squishy mud. :(

Queen Bonnie, I know we have been asking a lot from you lately, but would you be able to cast a spell in hopes of pushing the storm away from the first weekend of Fair?!

The weather did a surprise visit on our electricity last night, so I'm hoping for no power loss tonight.
Sorry about that...the updates are acomin', though.

I think the weather Gods-n-Goddesses are gettin' it out of their system before the weekend!

Cheers!

Well wishes to the clan of Sir Dragon. I've never met him, but I feel for the clan nonetheless.

Queen Bonnie, might I be worthy of a title of High Dragonslayer? I do keep a trophy dragon tooth upon the ear, you know. Earl of Debauchery, Kilted protector of the Queen, and General of Finding and Causing Trouble would also fit, methinks!

Your Grace,
MacLaren

 So sorry to hear of another passing! My heart goes out to his family.
   Dan we are pleased to make you our Royal Kilted Protector and High Earl of Debauchery. I love dragons though and have 3 nice ones Fieris, Scorthc and Smudge. Every now and then a dragon goes bad- then you may slay them.  Protection of endangered dragons is needed!

Indeed, I only slay the ones that eat the sheep. I've got nine myself looking after my realm, so I know about loving them, too. Three of mine like to slay those pesky peeps! What a great family I've got! Protector of the endangered would be a good assignment.

Your neighbor should be drawn and quartered, spat upon, burned, and then shot just for good measure. Stomping the ashes should be considered as well. That's just WRONG!!

I can't stand it when people do such things. I've seen similar in my neighborhood already myself, so I know the pain.

Artificial pumpkins are still glowing on the balcony every night, as well as the lovely branch garland on the railing.  The real pumpkin finally met his end yesterday.  Our animatronic mummy and witch are still up in the apartment.  We'll leave our decorations up for a while longer.  Yuletide trappings before Thanksgiving are just wrong!

Back on topic - Amras, we need a record of the appointments from your visit to TRF!  I can't recall exactly what title Queen Bonnie conferred upon you.

Hail, Var, friend and comrade!

I have been knighted as "Knight Protector of Squirrels", and you have been knighted as "Knight Commander of Squirrels". I also conveyed the title of "Knight Commander of Squirrels" to Sir Edward De Johns later that same day.

Thanks for the reminder, I shall put them in the lists...

I would love to dance with you, my Queen! I was just stopping by to ask pardon for not being able to attend court of late. I have been rather occupied with matters here, and in magical realms, as well. Unfortunately, there have been no kilts to be collected lately, so sadly I have nothing to show for my efforts. Forgive me, Madame. I hope I may still join you in your dance, however?

I am so glad you are feeling better, and will be attending Faire this weekend! I know you were missed last week by many, even though I was not there myself. I'll send my own weather words your way for a bit of warmth in the air, shall I?

Have a wonder Faire, my Queen!

Lord Amras, I would be most happy to collect your kilt for Her majesty, were I to be there this weekend! Unfortunately, I have yet to deputize anyone to do collecting in my stead for your area... I must first attend, then find one or two worthy lasses with sturdy magic boxes who can be apprenticed and trained up in the art of Kilt Collection, before I could entrust such delicate matters to anyone! I do seem to have quite a waiting list for collection at TRF, though, and must needs make my way there at my earliest opportunity!!! Her Majesty's collection should certainly surpass any other in the Realm...

Hmmmm... loincloth collection... I envision a new division of collecting! Thank you, Trillium, for the food for thought!!!

Reporting for the southeast area of your Queendom. I've not heard of any raccoons in danger today. So all should be safe and sound.

As always, Your humble servant,

 Grammercy Brimstone Blue! You know how much I love  Scotch! Glad all is well in your Realm! Our alliance is a very good thing!
 Huzzah Dustin! A theatrical performance is greatly needed here to lift the spirits! I am in the Janu-weary Doldrums! We need plays and music and dancing- and Spirits too of course to make it through the winter months!
 Huzzah for keeping the Raccoons in safety Tammy! Glad Raccoon coats are out of fashion! LOL!
 Grammercy for the update Amras.
  Huzzah to the Royal Court!

*enters the great hall and curtsies deeply before addressing the queen*  Your most wonderful Majesty,
I have a request.  I have and always will be your Court Harem Mistress but I would like to apply for an additional title.  I have of late become a "torch" singer in my corner of the realm.  I bring songs of deep emotion and little hearted flirt to the people there and would like share them with your queendom.  I should like to have a title that fits this new service I am now willing to offer.  Would your majesty grant me that title?  I would be most honored. *bows head and waits for repsonse*

Queen Bonnie, I would like to petition that Lady Renee Buchanan be added to the Royal Order of the Sandwenches.

She has demonstrated the knowledge of what goes in a frozen mudslide and how to keep sand off her lip gloss and out of her swimsuit bottoms.
She knows her SPF 4 from an SPF 80 without doing the subtraction and she can tell a sunblock from a sunscreen with her eyes closed.

She also knows what '25 minutes' means in Sandwench talk.

Thank you, beloved Queen!

Your Humble Scribe

I have not kept up with this thread in a while.  My humble  appologies  my queen, :-[ but between housework, the holidays, and homeschooling  my son,  I  try to keep up with as  many as  the posts as possible, but a  few  I  am behind  on.    But i do know that I had a title  at one  time.  I  helped in the royal stables if I recall, but I would accept any  title if  the  queen  will have  me.  :)

Beware, too, Lady Ashlyn
Do plant magickal seeds about the perimeter of your garden and grow lilacs.  Their lovely fragrance is rumoured to repel those nasty Peeps and surely once the Peeps are aware of your appointment, they will seek to prevent ye from accomplishing such a beauteous testimony to Her Royal Majesty's reign.

Peeps are also well known to seek to seduce the bonniest of lasses and bend them to their wills... so be thou on thy toes!

My good friend Queen Bonnie,

The Northern Fires are ever burning brightly. I hope this note finds you well. We are readying for the summer days and festivals here in my lands. Hope to see you soon. Also, please let Amras know that I will be traveling to the far north this season for the great RenDezvous. I hope to meet him there...

*tap tap tap* on a glass window reveals a white owl with a rolled parchment that bears this note:

     My lovely Queen,
 Your lands in the Southeast are quiet this day. Spring is among us, and Summer is closing in quickly. Most are readying for the Summer Solstice.
 My charge of protecting the Raccoons is getting tricky, as they like to investigate the rubber circles traveling on the pavements.  :'(         My special girl, Dixie, however just celebrated her first year of existence!  ;D

I hope this finds you in good health.

Your servant,
Tammy

*peeks in exhausted* My Queen! It has proved to be much difficult keeping the Royal Garden is good health through this undying heat. I have thus far managed to keep most of our magickal plants alive. I may need to hire a few extra garden gnomes to assist. If you know of any, send them my way! I will make sure there our flowers a plenty for the Summer Solstice. Now I shall be off to find an ancient oak to rest under for a moment and maybe a nice mug of sun tea!
Title: Re: Courtly Matters
Post by: Queen Bonnie on June 18, 2009, 01:23:25 PM
 Indeed! I know exactly what you mean! This heat is hard to cope with. I have a call in for garden gnomes- with BIG watering cans!  Keep up the good work Lady Ashlyn!!!
 I am working on a big rain potion.  We sure could use some!

My Lovely Queen,

I agree with Lady Mikayla...please take some of our rains...they've been coming daily at about 4 or 5pm...right when I'm driving home!
Title: Re: Courtly Matters
Post by: Var Greyshadow on June 19, 2009, 07:08:01 AM
We have a quite a contingent of garden gnomes at our cottage.  I'm sure we can spare a few.  They have watering cans, shovels, trowels - and even some magic mushrooms!  There's just one you may have to beware of.  He likes to take naps against a stump instead of tending the garden.
Title: Re: Courtly Matters
Post by: Queen Bonnie on June 19, 2009, 09:29:47 AM
 Grammercy for the offer of rain Lady Mikayla and Tammy! We could sure use it!
 All is getting very crispy here! Alas! Another week of over 100 degree temps predicted!
I am putting the garden gnomes to Work! They mostly seem as happy to work as the house elves- but not giving any of them extra clothes- just in case! Send your spare gnomes here Var! I have lots of room for Gnomes to roam and can give them a good home!LOL!

The gnomes are coming!  When I arrived home this evening, a procession was setting out across the yard.

As I'm sure I don't live anywhere near you...have you tried calling a wildlife rehabilitator? You could also call your Department of Wildlife/Natural Resources. Preferably, animal control would be a last resort...as they'll just catch it and then kill it.

I'm So sorry he's a nuisance.

 Huzzah! Grammercy for the Gnomes Var! They arrived safely and are busy setting up gnome homes! The crispy garden is looking better already! They sure are cute little fellers! I love the gnome songs they sing too- although Gnome, Gnome on the Range will get old after a while! LOL! They have their task cut out for them here!
Title: Re: Courtly Matters
Post by: Var Greyshadow on June 24, 2009, 07:02:21 AM
The gnomes are from Target.  We've been collecting them for several years now.  Each year, they have four styles, and usually they're all new designs.  They also have tiny ones to go in plant pots.  I'm waiting for them to get to gnomies - we need some female gnomes too!

I wonder where they learned "Gnome on the Range".  We've only played faire music for them.

Title: Re: Courtly Matters
Post by: Anna Iram on June 24, 2009, 07:15:13 PM
Made a trip to Target today and picked up two gnomes! I am trying to convince them that laundry and dishes can be magical too...at least until I find a home with a garden. They're not buying it and I think they're getting pretty mad.....shhhh they're coming...they're..OH NO...ARRRRGGGGG!!!!!!
Title: Re: Courtly Matters
Post by: Queen Bonnie on June 25, 2009, 02:33:51 PM
 I see why the Gnomes are upset! You want house elves for the laundry and dishes. Gnomes only do garden work! Get some potted plants ASAP!
Title: Re: Courtly Matters
Post by: C Dragonworks on July 25, 2009, 10:39:12 PM
Yes House elves are in order... planters with a few weeds will at least keep you gnomes grounded. I need to find some more Gnomes for my gardens.... I have fairies,frogs,rabbits, and a few gnomes but not nearly enough for a garden of this size. Perhaps I can get some to follow me home soon!   OH and picnic by the pool does sound fun!
Title: Re: Courtly Matters
Post by: Queen Bonnie on July 26, 2009, 12:52:35 PM
 Var brought me a gnome when she came to visit!  I gnamed him Gnorbert! LOL! He is right at home and has taken charge of all that remains alive at Meow Manor!
Title: Re: Courtly Matters
Post by: Anna Iram on July 26, 2009, 01:18:39 PM
I've set mine to work on the balcony. I've a potted plumeria grown from a cutting which I am determine to keep alive until I can plant it in the ground somewhere.

Var did good with the gnome post. Sweet of her to gift you with one Bonnie, and I just love mine that I bought. So cute. :)
Title: Re: Courtly Matters

Are gnomes addictive? LOL!

I currently have a three a day habit.  :D

I found mine on sale and bought the one with the staff and then two more. One with a pipe and one with gardening tools. I love the fellow with the staff! He'll remain mine, but one other will be a gift for my sister when she get's the keys to her first home.

  I want more gnomes. I am not sure they love the TX heat wave though!
Title: Re: Courtly Matters
Post by: Var Greyshadow on July 28, 2009, 04:37:26 PM
The gnomes are not over fond of the TX heat.  They're heading back to cooler climes until next spring, when some more of their cousins should come out to see us.  Ours have decided they prefer the air-conditioning and are staying inside.  They do not like too much sunshine either - they WILL fade, and badly, if left in direct sun.
Title: Re: Courtly Matters

I would very badly like to have some gnomes for my gardens as well. How do you keep the wild Boston Terriers from trying to eat them though? The last wee one we had almost did not make it. The dogs chewed off all of his clothes!!

The Gnomes from Target land are metal. Do dogs chew cast iron? LOL!

our most beloved, generous, gracious Queen Bonnie,
may your Old Tinker speak on dogs and cast iron.
me Belle and me had a mutt, that was part chow and part lab (most chow, as he look'd). we had a gas grill once(cast iron), and this is the story.
me daughter, maggie and her man were grill'n steaks upon said grill, (now me Belle and me never before this incident had cook'd meat on the grill, we always just used it for veggies). so after cook'n there steaks, they come indoors to eat and let the grill cool prior to cleaning it. well our dog,( he was about 75 pound'r, with not a bit of fat on him. his name was Martin Bear), Martin decided that he liked the smell of the grill/steaks. when me maggie came to get me, Martin had chew'd the side out of the grill and was work'n and the rack. he had actually eaten the side of it. only bits and pieces left on the ground. he had a couple of rough days after, but everything came out okay.  ;) Martin was alright and me's got a new grill.  ;D

thank you for the audience, Queen of everything,
your Old Tinker, always, is right here when you need,
i be the Old Tinker and his Belle...
Title: Re: Courtly Matters
Post by: Queen Bonnie on July 29, 2009, 03:30:44 PM
 Oh MY! I have never heard of a dog eating a grill! The Chow part must have chowed down!!! I learn something every day! LOL! You always make me smile Old Tinker! My love to you and Belle!  Royal Hugs!
 Glad the Royal Felines don't eat metal! I can only imagine the steel wool hairball!

As an amendment and update to my last announcement, I will no longer be appearing as the Lord Mayor in Richard III. Instead, I will be appearing as Earl Rivers and the Duke of Norfolk, due to casting changes because of illness and other issues with other actors. So, your Royal Theatre Master now has two roles instead of one, and one (Rivers) is a bigger role than my original role as Lord Mayor. More responisiblity for me, but I think I can handle it. As I promised before, images are sure to follow.

My Queen, It has been to long since I have had the honor of your company.  As I return to your Queendom, I wanted to come by and re-affirm my fealty to your highness.  I once again offer my services to you.  I hope you have been well in my absence.

Yes my Queen.  The realm of Facebook is a mighty troubled land.  One filled with Drama and Teens!  Our court is no doubt trying to bring some order to it's chaos.

 Do we need drama here? I know we can put on a PLAY!!!
 Teens doing drama!  I will see if William is busy.   I am seeing star crossed lovers- but there needs to be a dragon too!  And a troll and ... I am thinking on it a bit.
 LOL.
 Order to chaos is what I do best! LOL.

Your Majesty, I agree. NO drama. A Comedy of Errors perhaps?  A Midsummer's Ren Dream, filled with faires, and magic and lovers and moonlight and a bit of comedic madness? I think that suits us here beautifully. :)

Sua Maestà,

It hath been eons since last my attendance to your court and I am pleased to see that all hath continued unmarked by the events outside of the Realm. Tis a welcome retreat to once again visit and reminisce in times past and share in what is yet to come.

Molto Grazie!

Sua Maestà è più saggio!

Perchance a song will entertain the court. Tis one of my favorites, which in sooth, I may share a vocal rendition of in any shire to which I am privileged to visit and asked to do so.

"Non lo diro col Labbro"

"Non lo diro col Labbro
Che tanto ardir non ha;
Forse con le faville
Dell'avide pupille,
Per dir come tutt'ardo,
Lo sguardo Parlera."

Translation:

"I will not say it with my lips
which have not that courage;
Perhaps the sparks of my burning eyes,
Revealing my passion,
My glance will speak."

Perhaps it is time to once again breathe life into these sleepy halls.  Awaken those who have quietly slumbered, and bring in a new generation to mentor and carry her Majesty's Queendom into the future.

It appears her most Majestic and Royal Queen Bonnie, has lost much of her court.  Those of us who still stand for her and the late Lord A, Need to stand up and be counted.  Let's bring this court and Kingdom to life once more.  I was strolling through the kingdom of Fairehaven last fall, and a Pirate noticed the symbol of our kingdom on my doublet.  He commented on how that's a rare sight these days.  Almost like our Kingdom is an ancient civilization, of which has long since fallen.  I say it shall never be lost or fallen, so long as we keep it alive.
