: : Well, I don't know as the British and French are always in agreement *discreet little cough, here!) but, certainly the Scots and French entered into what was called 'The Auld Alliance' and it is still valid as far as I know. However, one can never really tell, for the French are certainly 'a breed apart ...'
: : And does one take it from this article that the French Trader will now be adding a line of 'gnomes' to his considerable inventory of merchandise?? (I had thought that the slave trade was at an end?) but perhaps he and Gnomedome are discussing 'terms and conditions' even as we speak!! Great!! I could do with a 'little someone' to 'do' my garden for me!!
: : Thanks to all my Gathering preparations, I had no time for my garden and it has run riot to the point where it is now so overgrown, for all I know, Hawkeye et al hunt elk in there!! (Well, one can dream ... *sigh*)
: : Kate.
: Well, Kate, you are a sweetheart, and I would send you a platoon of gnomes to get that garden of yours straightened out, but they probably woulnd't be allowed through British customs - you do know we were at New Orleans with old Andy Jackson when we kicked British butt don't you? Yup. We were there. Couldnt see over the bales of cotton and breastworks (and isnt that a lovely word?) but we were there.
Really? I hadn't heard that!! I don't think they mention that in the history books over here!! I have a feeling there are FEW who saw your lot there!! MUST have been the bales of cotton, not to mention the 'breastworks' (sorry, that word doesn't do anything for me) that shielded your 'action' from the rest of the folks fighting there.
Howsever, I applaud your bravery and commitment to 'kicking butt'!! By the by, was Mel Gibson as good looking 'in the flesh' as he is on celluloid??? He IS aging well, in spite of all the 'theatres of war' he has won!! :0)
As to coming and doing my garden, well don't worry about British customs! Now when you get off the plane at Glasgow, there is never anyone around in the 'arrivals' tunnel. A gnome (or a whole host of gnomes) would find it VERY easy to 'fork' down out the Northern Sallyport, then 'dig' through the luggage till you're past the customs picketline and the 'path' is easy from there ...
